I have to admit, I am not a fan of fall or winter. I am a sunshine gal at my core….but I do love the foods of the fall and winter months. The hearty meals that I get to make for my family and my favorite holiday comes around and affords me the opportunity to make some of my favorite dishes. One in particular is Peach Cobbler! YAAAAASSSSS 🙌🏼
My grandmothers made the best peach cobbler and everyone couldn’t wait to get a taste….if you happen to be lucky enough to beat the crowd. But, I have over the years tried my hand at it and it has worked out well for me, but I must say the fuss of it all makes it unappealing to make.
However, a couple of days ago, I tried something new. Something that took peach cobbler out of the realm of only holidays and end of supper treat for the family. I created a breakfast version that even took me by surprise. I had no idea it would turn out so good!!!
So, here is a quick and easy way to get your peach cobbler fix, with literally no fuss, no frills, and pretty much no energy spent having to make crust and watching the oven. My family loves it and it was sooooooo good folks that I must warn you…..you want to keep this one under the radar, because once it gets out…you will be in trouble and in demand 😉.
SLOWCOOKED Peach Cobbler Oatmeal
1 quart size page of frozen peaches
1 1/2 – 2 quarts of apple juice
3-4 cups of water
1 tsp of nutmeg
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
1 Cup Pure Cain Brown Sugar
4 Cups of rolled oats (depending on how thick you want you oatmeal)
2 Tbsp Earth Balance BUTTER (Optional)
Place all ingredients into a slow cooker/ crockpot. Stir really well until you see that everyone is pretty much like a soup. At this point you can taste the soup broth to see is it is sweet enough for you. Then place lid on crock pot, one that seals preferably, and turn your pot on to cook for 6 hr. Let it cook over night for a nice breakfast in the morning!
Serve with whip topping and you will fall in love with this dish. Serve it for breakfast or even a dessert for special occasions.
Enjoy and let me know how it turns out!
