Peach Cobbler Oatmeal ♥ (see, you can be cozy in summertime : )

Good morning friends!  

We are in the middle of a heat wave here in New England.  It's been in the 90's all week with no end in sight.  Although I love the slower pace of summer days, I have no love for this unbearable heat.  These are the days I long for the crisp cool air of fall.  But alas, everything comes in time so I must be patient and try to enjoy it (insert eye roll here : ) 

Last night I made grave mistake by having a cup of coffee at 7pm! Actually it was a caramel latte and I could not resist it.  I looked at it as a delicious dessert.  And it was.  However, the caffeine got to me and I ended up being up later than usual.  I was lying in bed scrolling Pinterest (as you do!) and I came across a recipe for Peach Cobbler Oatmeal.  Thinking about the two ripe peaches sitting in my fridge I decided that first thing in the morning I would make it for breakfast.  And that's what I did!  




 

Oatmeal is the ultimate comfort food.  

Even in the summer there are ways to feel cozy 



We LOVE peaches around here! 



All it took was chopped peaches, cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, and oats.  

 

Here's how to make it:

3 1/2 cups water

pinch of salt

2 1/2 cups rolled oats (I used quick oats)

2 1/4 tsp cinnamon

pinch of nutmeg

2 large peaches, chopped

3-4 tbls brown sugar

chopped nuts for garnish (I omitted these) 


Bring water and salt to a boil.  Add oats, cinnamon, & nutmeg.  Stir to combine. 

Cook for 2-3 minutes or until oatmeal thickens.  Add peaches and brown sugar.  Cook for one  additional minute.   

This oatmeal is thick.  Add a splash of milk if desired to thin it out a bit if that's the way you like it : ) 




My favorite spice : ) 



I added a drizzle of honey on top for added sweetness!  

Yum Yum Yum!!!



This is a large recipe, so you may want to cut it in half if you don't want to eat oatmeal for days.  I put the leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge and I'll have it for breakfast for the rest of the week. 

I'm thinking a few blueberries on top would be a nice too!  

Enjoy!! xoxo 

Have a wonderful day Friends! I hope you are staying cool today and doing something you love.  

Happy Wednesday!
