my oatmeal dream.

it’s no secret that i’m an oatmeal lover, so when Fit Approach partnered with My Oatmeal to let a few sweat pink ambassadors taste test custom oatmeal blends i was quick to jump on it.

and when i say custom, i really mean custom. there are over 22 billion different combinations you can make on their website.

i opted for a healthy oatmeal mix full of my favourite summer flavours, coconut and peach, and named this tropical treat peach coconut dream.

peachcoconutdream

my ingredients were: steel cut whole oats, coconut cream pie flavour, chipped coconut and diced peaches with brown sugar cane for sweetness.

while you could cook the oatmeal on the stovetop or in the microwave, i decided to amp up the flavours of coconut and peach in a delicious warm baked treat.

arrange two-thirds of the peaches on the bottom of the baking dish. pour oat mixture evenly over the peaches then pour the milk mixture over the oats.
gently shake the dish to make sure the milk covers the oats.
arrange the remaining peaches on top of oats.

since it’s just me, and the recipe makes six servings (four if you’re a hungry one) i’ve discovered that this recipe keeps really well. we’ve talked about my distaste for mornings, so it’s nice to be able to portion this recipe into individual containers for breakfast for the week and reheat in the microwave with a splash of almond milk.

blueberries or apple and cinnamon would also be amazing combinations.

what would your My Oatmeal flavour combo be?
