Who doesn’t love the idea of peach cobbler for breakfast?! During the summer, fruits are so sweet and flavorful that it feels like a treat to be able to create recipes with them! I wanted to make a simple and easy breakfast/dessert that feels oh-so-glamorous. Just don’t let your guests know how easy it is to make!For the past three summers I used to bake and sell desserts just like these. Everything from raw mint chocolate pies to carrot cake muffins to hummus. Now I get to be a full time blogger, health coach and recipe developer. I find this job so much more rewarding and fun because I am able to reach so many more people when I create recipes as opposed to selling the actual food.
I know you should “never say never” but I don’t think I will ever be selling desserts the way I used to. I would spend hour after hour making raw pies and cookies. Don’t get me wrong – it was easy for me to do and I felt really confident being able to create different so many novel desserts. But after a while I lost that joy I would get from baking; it turned into another thing I had to do that day. Now I get to be even more creative and work with different companies, experimenting with tons of different products and creating new recipes every day. Plus, I am able to help people live a healthier more balanced life through my health coaching services! I couldn’t ask for a better “summer job!”I made a slightly different version here of what was once one of my best-selling desserts. You can enjoy it in single serving sizes and play around with different fruit combinations. I had a really ripe white peach and plum that I was dying to use. I love baking ripe or over ripe fruit because it’s extra sweet and a great way to use fruit that is on its way out. You can totally make this a seasonal dish and use apples during the winter.It has all the components you would find in your morning oatmeal so there is no need to feel guilty about having this for breakfast– oats, Nuttzo nut butter, fruit and dried figs! Lately I cannot get enough of dried figs especially paired with Nuttzo. I love all the different textures Nuttzo has from the flaxseeds, cashews, peanuts etc….. I also blended fresh peaches into the crust so you get that peach flavor in every bite. The Nuttzo allows the oats to stick together and the dried figs provide the sweetness. Of course, you can use whatever dried fruit you have on hand but the combination of the fig+peach+nuttzo is on another level!If you are having this for dessert you might want to consider it with a scoop of my banana ice cream. Cold, warm, soft and crunchy all at the same time…sooo good….I didn’t add any extra sweetener to the fruit component because fruit is sweet enough! I hate seeing fruit cobblers downed in sugar; it totally takes away from all the flavors that the fruit has to offer. By not adding sugar you can actually taste the fruit and appreciate it for what it is! Bonus–this will take less than 30 minutes to make from start to finish. Did I sell you yet on making this? I feel a bit like I’m on Rachel Ray’s 30 Minute Meals, but seriously, it’s all of 5 minutes to put together and 20 minutes to cook so I think I get extra credit in that area with a total of 25 minutes. Well here you go….Enjoy!
