Peach Pecan Coconut Oatmeal

Oh how I absolutely love the flavors of summer. Although berries probably top my list, peaches certainly come in a close second. Peak season is here (or darn close anyway). I’m always looking for ways to savor my husband’s most favorite fruit. I love a good peach cobbler or peach banana smoothie however this recipe sounds like it would make a divine breakfast treat! I have a few alterations I’ll be making, please see them in parenthesis below.

Peach Pecan Coconut Oatmeal

For the oatmeal:
    • 3 cups water
    • 1 cup milk (I’ll be using coconut or almond milk in place of cows milk)
    • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter (I’m going to try a little coconut oil instead)
    • 1 cup steel-cut oats
    • ¼ teaspoon salt
    • 3 tablespoons packed light brown sugar (my sweetener of choice will be honey or pure maple syrup instead of brown sugar)
    • ¾ teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
For serving:
  • 1 to 2 peaches, diced
  • ½ cup pecans, roughly chopped
  • ½ cup unsweetened coconut
