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.
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.
This Ginger Nectarine Baked Oatmeal is my all time favourite baked oatmeal recipe. So easy to make, and can easily be made vegan.
- 3 cups quick cooking oats
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 large eggs
- 2 cups milk of choice
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 medium nectarines, diced
Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Lightly grease a 9×13 inch baking dish and set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients, except the nectarines. Gently fold in the diced nectarines and pour into the prepared baking dish.
Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until set in the middle.
