I’m always on the lookout for healthy breakfast options for my kids. When I saw this oatmeal I just knew I had to try it. Peaches, oatmeal, cinnamon, and a healthy serving of heavy cream – sign me up! Okay, so the heavy cream isn’t particularly healthy, but it is delicious. . .and completely optional.
Baked Peach Oatmeal Adapted from Southernplate.com
2 cups old fashioned oats
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, melted
29 ounce can sliced peaches, drained
heavy cream, for serving
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 x 13 inch pan with nonstick spray; set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, stir together the first 6 ingredients. Pour the milk, eggs, and vanilla into a blender and puree. Stir the egg mixture into the dry ingredients. Pour in the melted butter. Stir just until combined. Add the drained peaches.
Pour the mixture into the prepared baking pan. Bake for 30-45 minutes. The oatmeal should be set – no jiggling in the middle when the pan is moved. Stir and serve with a healthy dose of heavy cream, if desired.
Refrigerate any leftovers for 3 days.
