Slow Cooked Nectarine Oatmeal

Slow Cooked Nectarine Oatmeal

So yesterday I posted a photo of this beautiful breakfast on the Fit Foodie Finds Facebook page…but I called it Slow Cooked APRICOT Oatmeal. I apparently don’t know my fruits :) I had to double check with Blake which fruit it actually was and it turns out I was wrong!

We picked up some beautiful peaches and nectarines (not apricots) from Jerry’s this weekend and they looked lonely in my fridge, so I decided to bake them inside my favorite breakfast…oatmeal!

I almost always microwave my oats because I am either in a hurry in the AM or because I am making breakfast at work. I worked from home yesterday and was able to do things a little bit differently. I slow cooked my oats in the oven…making them very tender. It also brought out the delicious, sweet flavor of the nectarines, which I probably wouldn’t have gotten in the microwave.

Peaches and Nectarines look so similar! In the above photo, can you guess which side is a nectarine and which is a peach?

When the oatmeal came out of the oven, it was extremely hot. I poured a little extra almond milk on top to cool it down. So unbelievably nummy!
