I am savoring the summer flavors of peaches while I can!
This morning I made peach, fig, and walnut baked oats - what a great way to start the day!
I prepared this dish the night before so it would be ready to pop in the oven in the morning. While it was baking I did some stretches, which was very relaxing. I love starting the day with stretches while I look out my window at the river - it is so peaceful and helps me focus and be grounded and mindful.
Here’s the recipe:
1/2 cup oats
1/2 mashed banana
1/2 cup milk and/or yogurt (I used a mix of the two)
chopped figs and peaches (about 1/4 cup total)
crushed walnuts (about ¼ cup)
1 tsp baking powder
Dash of cinnamon
Dash of nutmeg
Splash of vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly spray or oil an oven safe dish.
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Pour into the oven safe dish and bake for about 25 minutes.
Let cool and enjoy!
I made a little divot in the center of my oats before baking and filled it with Greek yogurt afterwards! I sprinkled chia seeds and cinnamon on top along with a drizzle of honey! My family actually keeps bees, so this honey is from our bees and is a great reminder of home while I am away at school!
