Before posting a recipe, I try to do it several times to see what will happen. This experiment turned out so delicious that I decided to make it a separate post! I think this would be great for a healthy dessert alternative as well. Some redi-whip or homemade whipped topping with it, perhaps? We ate this for breakfast. I’m trying not to eat the whole pan.
I usually double this recipe. But I have made it several times. Feel free to follow the directions below and test it out for yourself in a smaller quantity.
*Just made this for like the 10th time. Don’t make it with half of the egg amount. Ewwwww. It wasn’t pretty.
Baked Peach Blueberry Oatmeal
yield 4 servings
1-2 peaches, sliced and pealed or 1-2 cups of frozen peaches (cover the bottom of the dish)
3/4 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
1 cup Old Fashioned Oats
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup milk
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/8 cup honey or maple syrup
1 Tb brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup nuts (optional), chopped
1. If using frozen peaches, simply spray your 8×8 or 9×9 pan with cooking spray and layer the bottom of the pan. Cover it up so it doesn’t absorb funky stuff and let it thaw in the fridge overnight. If using fresh peaches, simply: Preheat oven to 375 degrees if making the same day. Spray with cooking spray a 8×8 or 9×9 dish (I usually use glass) or a 1.5 qt. dish.
2. Put the sliced peaches on the bottom as a layer and sprinkle a little over half the blueberries on top.
3. Mix your dry ingredients: oats, cinnamon, baking powder and salt. You can sprinkle this on your fruit layer and mix with the wet ingredients. It didn’t seem to matter either way. Sprinkle this onto the peaches/blueberry layer.
4. Using the same bowl, mix the wet stuff: milk, egg, sugar/honey, vanilla. (I measured the milk first then added the honey until the measuring cup hit 1/4 cup at the bottom since honey sinks. Then added the egg and vanilla to it and stirred. One less dish to wash.)
5. Pour wet stuff over the dry stuff and gently mix. Add the rest of your blueberries on top and then your nuts (optional). Bake about 30-35 minutes.
