Continuing on my quest to combat the fear behind the terrible CARB, I bring to you a Simple Swap original recipe cooked up for my main squeeze! He’s been working his tail end off trying to get our yard complete before our visitors arrive at the end of the month. It’s a good thing I married a man with farming in his blood because I know of very few people who would be out there in the rain installing sprinklers and hauling dirt!
In order to make sure he had the fuel to get him through another long day, I decided to wake up early and do something special with the bag of frozen peaches that have been eyeing me in the freezer for a solid three months now. Enter… Oatmeal Peach Cobbler Bake.
Wayne is all about pancakes on Sunday’s but today I wasn’t really feeling it. I wanted more of a one stop shop that I could combine all ingredients and let the oven do the work. Thus, I took out my staples… oats, flour, baking powder, cinnamon and the can of fat free evaporated milk I’ve had since Thanksgiving.
I googled and searched high and low for a cobbler recipe made with the evaporated milk but found no such luck. Throwing caution to the wind I decided hell, I’ll try this one on my own.
Badda bing…badda boom, a new original recipe was created!
- 1.5 cups all purpose flour
- 2 cups old fashioned oats
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 cup melted Smart Balance Light Flaxseed Margarine
- 12 oz can of skim evaporated milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup loose brown sugar
- 1 tbsp . oats
- 2 tbsp . brown sugar
- 2 tbsp . maple syrup
- 1.5 cups peaches frozen
Preheat oven to 350*F.
Combine flour, oats, cinnamon and baking powder in one bowl.
In a separate bowl, combine wet ingredients and sugar.
*If using frozen peaches, heat for 30 seconds first in the microwave.
Chop peaches into small cubes and add to the wet mixture.
Gently fold dry ingredients into wet.
Pour into a 8" x 8" pan or 12 muffin tins.
Bake for 40 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Note, shorter cooking time for muffin tins (25-30 minutes).
This is the perfect pick me up with a warm cup of tea or coffee on a cold, rainy day. Or, a delicious dessert with a dollop of light vanilla bean ice cream.
I served this up to the hubby with a big glass of milk and sliced banana to give him the fuel to get the job done! Stay tuned for the yard debut coming soon!
