Peach Blueberry Baked Oatmeal

Okay, so what happened to summer? First it showed up late. That June full of clouds, rain and 60 degree temperatures was interesting to say the least.And now it’s August. It’s supposed to be the dog days of summer. The sun blaring, the air blasting, the gentle breeze the only thing keeping you from wilting when stepping foot outside the house.

We’ve had the coldest winters and the coolest summers lately. You know what I think, I think the next ice age is coming.

Well, maybe not, but still, summer, come back to me. Now. Please.

The only good thing about this chilly summer weather is that I can mix my food seasons. You know, make those cozy fall foods with my favorite summer ingredients. It’s pretty fun.

Peach Blueberry Baked Oatmeal Peach Blueberry Baked oatmeal is a wonderful cool weather breakfast. It warms your body and your soul with its comforting goodness. It’s basically the food version of a blanket straight from the dryer. It’s even better when I can load it with peaches and blueberries, some of my favorite summer fruits.

Plus, I got to check out the Salted Caramel and Blueberry Blue Diamond Almonds. I saved plenty to snack on because they are delicious, but I also added some to my oatmeal. They add the best crunch which contrasts with the creamy oatmeal so perfectly.

When summer comes back, this also makes the best leftovers cold from the refrigerator. Mom and I devoured the entire pan over two days, but if you’re not ravenous in the morning like us, you could make this last several days for a breakfast when you’re in a hurry. Plus, it’s vegan and gluten free.

While I wait for summer to come back, I’m making another baked oatmeal and snacking on some almonds. It’s the only thing that’s going to make fall better.
