Peaches & Cream Oatmeal

When I was a kid, I loved peaches and cream instant oatmeal packets.

I wouldn’t dream of eating them now…since they are full of preservatives, pesticides, artificial colors and flavors…GMOs…

but every now and then I get a craving…

Here is my healthy version of Peaches & Cream Oats. Bonus: This recipe is dairy and gluten free (if you use gf oats).

Peaches & Cream Oats

1/2 cup organic rolled oats

3/4-1 cup water

1/2 cup sliced, ripe peaches (I used thawed frozen peaches)

1/3 cup full fat coconut milk

8 walnut halves, chopped

1 tablespoon pure maple syrup

Boil water in a saucepan. Add oat and return to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. This may take more or less time, depending on how much water you are using. Once the oats are cooked, put them in a bowl, stir in peaches, syrup, and nuts. Pour the coconut milk over top…and ENJOY!

Look for the next post in my Real & Clean series later this week!
