This morning we were awakened at 5am by my happy toddler… Although I love waking up to “Mama, Mama”, I would prefer to not do it at 5am on my day off Needless to say, we sure needed an extra boost to jump start our day. Seeing as how I had some ripe peaches sitting in the fruit bowl, immediately the idea of having a peach crisp for breakfast popped into my head. I mindlessly threw a bunch of ingredients together and it came out as more of a crumble / granola type recipe, but nonetheless it was still delicious and felt like we were eating dessert for breakfast. If you are a yogurt fan, this would be awesome on top of yogurt. Unfortunately, I thought of the idea with only a few bites to spare, but it was yummy!
4 large servings or 6 small
- 4 ripe peaches, sliced / chopped / diced (based on your preferences)
- 2 cups old fashioned oatmeal
- 2 Tbsp light brown sugar
- 1 Tbsp cinnamon
- 5 Tbsp butter, melted
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Layer peaches in an 8×8 baking dish (I sprayed mine with EVOO spray first). In a medium bowl, combine melted butter, cinnamon, salt, vanilla, brown sugar, and oats until everything is well combined and coated. Sprinkle mixture on top of peaches. Bake for 35 minutes or until top is golden brown. Serve on its own or on top of yogurt. If enjoying as an evening treat, this would be delicious on top of vanilla bean ice cream.
Note: This is pretty clumpy and falls apart as you try to serve a slice, so using a serving spoon works best! It is not meant to be cake-like.
