"Tomorrow, I'm going to bake nectarines."
One morning, I set out to copycat a baked nectarine dish I saw on Pinterest. Only...I didn't have the ingredients, so I made up a new dish!
3 Nectarines, halved and pitted
1 packet maple brown sugar oatmeal
1/2 cup hot water
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix oatmeal and water in glass baking dish. If it looks dry, add more water.
2. Place nectarines and apples on top of oatmeal mixture. Coat with coconut oil. Sprinkle with brown sugar. You can stir it all together or bake layered.
3. Cover with foil. Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool for 1-2 minutes. Serve with toast, yogurt, ice cream, or by itself!
It smells A-mazing. It is super sweet, so if you aren't a sweet tooth, you can make it with more oatmeal and add something savory. What's that savory food everyone loves with maple? Oh yeah! Bacon! Or if you're like me, veggie bacon. (No exclamation point there. Veggie bacon's less exciting. I'm aware.)
It feels great to start the day with a creative task like cooking. Cheers to many more mornings like this one!
