Ginger Nectarine Baked Oatmeal

You know when someone says "I think he/she is the one"? Oh wait, you don't live in a cheesy romantic movie? Well I might live in a cheesy (or sugary) food romantic movie, because I really think that this oatmeal is the one.

Even though it's another nectarine recipe, I promise I will be going full blown pumpkin soon. Just you wait. But right now, I am crushing on the stone fruit. (Did you know the actual word for stone fruit is a drupe? I learn something new every day!)

Even though I have been pretty much obsessed with oatmeal for the past month, my boyfriend is not joining in on my obsession. Sure, he will eat it if I have just baked it and put him in front of his face, but most days, I leave before he even wakes up. And since he bought a lot of candy for Halloween, (seriously, I don't even want to think about all of the candy I ate) he prefers to eat candy for breakfast than the leftover baked oatmeal that I made the day before.

But this one changed his mind! I almost didn't want him to eat the leftovers because I wanted it all to myself. It was seriously that good.

This oatmeal is long gone now, but looking at these pictures makes me wish I had some left over. Maybe next time I make it I will create a stash in the back of my fridge. For times like this.

How would I describe this oatmeal? I think I would say that it's like a gingerbread cookie meets my upside down nectarine cake meets an oatmeal cookie. Just all kinds of yummy.

And I know that I made some baked nectarine oatmeal last week, but I am loving this one waaaayy more. Not that last week's oatmeal wasn't great. It's just that this one is unreal.

This recipe is my snail-like transition from summer into fall. But now that I have discovered this new way to eat oatmeal, I don't think I want to try anything else.

  10. I tried my first baked oatmeal in college and even though it was college cafeteria food...I still enjoyed it. So, I made my own and love it even more. I made baked oatmeal with nectarine before and love it!! It`s great that you added that ginger spice to it!
