Did I ever tell you my oatmeal story? I hated it until about 6 years ago. Well, hated is a pretty strong word, “avoided” may be better.
Oatmeal just never appealed to me. Who wants a big bowl of mush for breakfast? At least that’s what I thought until I made it for the Little Guy when he started solids.
There was just something about the smell, even the plain baby food kind. It was just asking to be eaten, so I took a bite. That bland taste sold me and I bought my first container of instant oats, never looking back.
This morning, while making Little Bean’s first bowl of oatmealâ€¦
I celebrated with some for myself.
It. was. amazing! And super filling. Peaches are in season right now and I had some ripe ones from a local farm stand.
Here’s what I did.
- 1/2 cup Old Fashioned Oats (40g)
- 1 cup of water
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tbsp of Honey (21g) + some for drizzling
- 2 oz Greek Yogurt
- 1 peach cut unto small cubes with skin
Put the oats, water, and salt in a small pot over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
Once the oats start to absorb a bit of the water (you’ll notice the water getting cloudy and slightly thick) add the cinnamon and a tbsp of honey. Stir until boiling. The oats will thicken in about 3 minutes.
Turn off the heat.
Stir in the yogurt and 3/4 of the cut peach.
Once blended well, transfer to a bowl. Top with the remaining peaches and drizzle with a bit more honey.
