Baked Peaches and Cream Oatmeal

Warm your kitchen with a cozy bowl of Baked Peaches and Cream Oatmeal, while the mornings are still cool and the markets are still stocked with peaches.

I’m hanging on by my fingernails to the last day of summer.

Tomorrow it’s officially Fall, you guys, OMG! Before this blog turns into all things cinnamon and apples and pumpkin, I’ve got one last end-of-summer recipe: Baked Peaches and Cream Oatmeal.

Baked Peaches and Cream Oatmeal is great for these last days of summer where the mornings are crisp but the afternoons turn warm and sunny.

Last night I woke up shivering under my covers, because the window in my bedroom was open all night and there was a very, very cooooool breeze blowing in. I rummaged under my bed for my long-forgotten slippers, awkwardly stuffed my feet into them, and swiftly closed the window.

No more leaving windows open all night, or even all day.

Peach Ricotta Toast

Enjoy peach ricotta toast for breakfast at the height of peach season - juicy sweet peaches are paired with creamy ricotta and crunchy salted pistachios.
Oh, peaches.

Peaches are the one fruit that unequivocally spells summer. When eaten at their ripest they are so sweet, tender, and juicy – no other fruit compares! Peaches have such a short season, so let’s take advantage and eat ALL the peaches while we can!

Peaches grow a few hours inland from where I live – in the Okanagan region. It’s an area that gets hot dry summers and has perfect growing conditions for fruit (and wine! yum!)

I vacationed at a lake in the Okanagan two weeks ago, and peaches were the one thing I was set on bringing back home. (Besides cherries. And apricots. And blueberries. And tomatoes. Oh, and lots and lots of wine. 😉 )

Easy Peanut Butter Granola

You need this quick and easy granola recipe in your back pocket. And I bet you already have the ingredients in your kitchen.

Everyone needs a quick and easy granola recipe in their back pocket. And everyone has peanut butter in their fridge. (Or in their cupboard… Do you keep your peanut butter in your fridge or in your cupboard? I say fridge all the way!)

This recipe for Easy Peanut Butter Granola only has 5 ingredients and you can whip it together in one bowl. I highly recommend using a large glass mixing bowl – because then you can throw the bowl in the microwave to melt the peanut butter and that just makes everything easier!

Here’s all you do: Scoop the peanut butter, honey, and coconut oil into a glass mixing bowl. Melt it in the microwave. Take it out and resist dunking your finger in the bowl to taste – because ohhh man, melted sweet peanut butter is delicious!

Raspberry Chia Pudding

Beautiful pink berries are stirred in with chia seeds and milk to create a simple and nutritious Raspberry Chia Pudding breakfast.

I’ve been buying a TON of berries from the market lately. Spring just gets me so obsessed with eating fresh berries – it’s like a drought has ended! Berry Banana Bread has been constantly in my oven lately and Raspberry Gin Fizzes are on constant rotation in my belly 😉

So let’s keep the love affair with berries rolling and dish up a super healthy RASPBERRY breakfast! These beautiful pink nuggets are stirred in with chia seeds and milk to create a simple and nutritious Raspberry Chia Pudding.

Chia Pudding is the perfect lazyperson’s breakfast because it is:

  • super duper healthy (chia seeds are packed full of omega-3 fatty acids, protein, fiber, antioxidants, and calcium)
  • low effort (literally you dump all the ingredients into a mason jar and shake)
  • quick (make it the night before and grab it out of the fridge in the morning)
  • portable (throw the mason jar into your bag and bring it anywhere)
  • filling (chia seeds control your appetite)
