Peach Oatmeal with Cranberries and Almonds recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

Fresh ripe peaches are cooked with steel cut oats and dried cranberries until everything is soft and tender, then topped with a bit of brown sugar or honey and a pat of butter. The peaches are cooked just long enough to soften without falling apart.

The flavor reminds me of Southern Peach Cobbler. I have a weakness for peaches; whether they are raw, baked, grilled, simmered, blended or otherwise cooked. I have just one more peach recipe to share on Monday and then I’ll bid farewell to my favorite fruit until next year.

After making Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal last month, I knew that I’d be trying something similar with peaches very soon. I’ve made this oatmeal numerous times now and I love it every bit as much as the apple variety.

I might not be able to enjoy stove-top oatmeal without warm fruit cooked into it ever again.

    I have oatmeal every morning with blueberries and cinnamon. Now that I've seen this I may have to try it with frozen peaches, craisins and almonds. Frozen peaches would be great when the season is over or of course a fruit in season. I do like the addition of the dried cranberries and almonds. It's healthy, adds flavor and crunch. I think I will add those in this morning. Thanks for sharing this.
