Peach Cobbler Baked Oatmeal (My 100th post!)
You are now reading Mix it Up’s 100th post!
Even now, as I write this, I’m having a hard time believing it. To be honest, in my mind, this still seems like a baby blog that’s slowly working it’s way up to the “big guys”, even though I know I’ve made some huge progress from the start of Mix it Up to now.
For example, now I’ve started to create some of my very own recipes, instead of just slightly tweaking others. I’m glad I have, too, as it’s definitely a great feeling when you think up something, try it out, and then get to devour it later on.
In fact, today’s recipe is actually one that I though up all by myself. I wanted it, I tried it out, and I absolutely loved it.
What was it, you ask? Peach Cobbler… breakfast style.
I took a classic Peach Cobbler… and then made it healthy, easy, delicious enough for breakfast.
Surprisingly, it wasn’t all that hard.
All you’ve got to do is think a little bit outside of the box. Sub oatmeal for the buttery topping, throw in some extra spices, and, then, after much thought, omit the sugar (don’t worry, you can’t notice). Now that I think about it, you could even add some greek yogurt (or frozen greek yogurt) on top, to complete the dessert-for-breakfast theme.
So, you see, this breakfast dish really isn’t all that different from it’s dessert twin. You just have to go in with an open mind, and then prepare for it to be blown by the amazing-ness of the following recipe.
Peach Cobbler Baked Oatmeal
- 1/3 cup rolled oats
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp allspice
- pinch cloves
- 2 tbsp + 2 tsp applesauce
- 2 tbsp water, milk, or other liquid
- pinch salt
- 1/3 cup chopped peach
Can you believe that only that short list of ingredients and, at the most, 5 minutes of your time, can lead to such a heavenly breakfast. I’ll admit, I was a bit doubtful at first. That is, until a took a bite. Major yummy-ness I tell you. Just give it a go and you’ll see.
