It’s officially September, and while everyone is knee deep in Pumpkin Spice Lattes, I’m just over here trying to will summer to stay. It’s not that I don’t like fall, but I’m definitely a summer girl all the way. To me, nothing is better than the warm sun on your skin or going out for ice cream on a hot night. I’m starting to come to terms that summer is ending, though. I mean, ya kinda have to, right? But rather than diving right into all things pumpkin I need to ease into it, and that’s exactly why I whipped up a batch of this cinnamon peach baked oatmeal! I’m inviting in some festive flavors, like cinnamon, while still hanging on to the last of those fresh, juice summer peaches.

If you haven’t made baked oatmeal yet, chances are you live under a rock. Okay, I’m totally kidding, but I feel like baked oatmeal is one of the hottest meal prep items right now. They’re super easy to put together and I’m convinced they’re fool proof! This recipe is no exception.

Before we go on- take a second and pin this recipe to you Pinterest board. You’ll want to have this on hand every year during peak peach season and also when you want a little dose of summer in the winter months (Thank goodness for frozen peaches!)

With this cinnamon peach baked oatmeal around you can say “so-long” to the mid-morning hanger from those low-carb meals that you know I’m not a fan of. Carbs, like oats, are a great way to get some whole grains in early on in the day, which will help keep your tummy full and satisfied, and…let’s be real.. you mood stable!
