I know oatmeal isn’t very summery, but blueberry and peaches are in season and for whatever reason I was craving a big bowl of oats the other morning.

So yeah, I was kind of sweating a little bit while eating this BUT it was totally worth it. Next time (i.e. tomorrow) I’m just going to crank the air conditioning while I eat breakfast so that doesn’t happen.

Speaking of — is it just me or is it impossible for an establishment (house, office building, store, etc.) to feel comfortable in the summer? It’s either too hot because the air conditioning isn’t running or the air conditioning is blasting and it’s so stinkin’ cold you have to wear a sweater. First world problems, I know. But it’s still hard to deal.

Okay, so back to these oats. They’re just regular rolled oats, cooked on the stove top but spruced up with some local summer goodness. Isaac hand-picked the blueberries at a local farm and we got the peaches from the farmer’s market last weekend. Hooray for local produce!

The oats are topped with a hefty sprinkle of ground flax and a spoonful of almond butter for good measure. <– Serving oats without nut butter is basically a crime.

The fresh peaches and berries add a subtle sweetness, but these oats aren’t overly sweet like most packaged oats. If you’re in the mood for something a tad sweeter, feel free add a little stevia or natural sugar to the oats or a drizzle a bit of maple syrup or honey on top.

    • Hi Georgia. 1/2 cup serving of blueberries is about 75 grams. And when I say divided, I just mean split the total amount because half (about 37 grams or 1/4 cup) will be cooked with the oatmeal and then the other half will be used as a topping once the oats are cooked. Let me know if this makes sense! 🙂

  1. Hi, I love your recipes and your blog is my favourite go to recipe blog! Can I just ask what you mean by 1/2 cup blueberries divided? Random query but I just got confuzzled haha

  2. I feel like these could be adapted to an overnight oat recipe, with some tweaking. You could even cook down the blueberries and peaches with a little stevia to make it like a pie filling, which could be tasty!

  3. This looks like a great way to start the day! I’m terrible about breakfast but I know I need to get better! This looks delicious!

  4. Unfortunately blueberries aren’t in season where I’m at but peaches are so I will definitely be adding those to my oats in the morning tomorrow. Thanks for the tip! It both looks and sounds amazing 😀

  5. Local produce is the best!! I find that the fruits and veggies I get at the farmers’ markets are so much sweeter than their grocery store counterparts. I love the way you’ve incorporated seasonal produce into this oatmeal! 🙂

  6. I’ve been meaning to tell you this. Next time, I vote WE go blueberry picking so I can indulge in all these blueb treats, too. 😉

  7. I’m obsessed with oatmeal, and still eat it most mornings in the summer. It’s one of the only breakfast meals that truly tides me over until lunch. Also, not topping oatmeal with some kind of nutbutter (especially sunbutter) would be ridiculous! 😉

  8. It is absolutely a fact that buildings cannot provide the perfect comfort level in the summer. And that oatmeal looks t-oat-ally awesome!
