peaches n’ cream oats

It’s been awhile since I’ve served up breakfast around here.  It’s about time that changed.  If you didn’t know, I’m a wee bit excited that Colorado peaches are finally in their prime season.  They showed up a few weeks ago, but they are finally super sweet + super large.

I’m not one who loves warm fruit, which I’ve told you before.  However, once in awhile there are exceptions.

Peaches n’ Cream oats, are one of those exceptions.  Also from last summer, Peachy Keen Protein Oats.

The trick is stirring in a little yogurt + waiting until the very end to plunk in your peaches.  Topping with a few splashes of cold milk, makes things even creamier.

Seasonal oatmeal is so much fun.  Or maybe I am just a huge oatmeal nerd.  I can’t deny being hooked on oats.  And speaking of seasonal oats…I’m in no rush for fall, but I may have to crack open a can of pumpkin pretty soon!

If oats don’t happen to be your thing, whip up a quick batch of popped amaranth and add fresh peaches to that.  Or follow this Strawberries + Banana Cream Cereal recipe, subbing peaches for strawberries.  Mmm, that might be on the menu for tomorrow.
