After a recent trip to Costco I had a large box of white peaches sitting on my counter.  I am definitely a big fruit eater, but even I couldn’t make it through the box before they started getting soft and mushy.  I knew I needed to bake something with them but couldn’t decide what.  Then yesterday I was trying decide what kind of baked oatmeal to make and it dawned on me, peach!!  I’m so glad I tried this recipe.  It has tons of flavor from the spices, it is loaded with peaches, and it helps keep you full for hours.  I love it when yummy things are also healthy for you!  GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and spray an 8X8 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.

In a large bowl combine all ingredients and stir well.  Pour oatmeal into prepared baking dish and bake for 35 minutes, or until the edges are pulling away from the dish and the top is lightly browned.  Let sit 5 minutes then serve.  Great reheated the next day with milk and a handful of blueberries!
