Baked Oatmeal with Fresh Peaches

As I’ve posted before, I am not a huge fan of oatmeal. I have come to tolerate it some, but it’s definitely not my favorite. So I thought baked oatmeal would be a nice alternative. After getting some wonderful peaches at a local produce spot, I thought it would be great to add in peaches. It turned out great! It’s moist and the peaches added wonderful flavor and texture. It kind of tastes like a cookie. The great thing about the base baked oatmeal recipe is you can add most any thing to it instead of the peaches: blueberries, strawberries, nuts and I think chocolate chips would be great too! What I really love about this is that you make it the night before, refrigerate and just pop it in the oven in the morning. That works out great for those of us (me!) that aren’t morning people. Are a morning person or night owl? I’m a night owl all the way.
