Peaches and cream are added to high-fiber steel cut oats and ground flaxseed for a hearty gluten-free breakfast.
As a celiac, I’ve eliminated several whole grains from my diet – wheat, barley, and rye. I realize the benefit of whole grains though, so I’ve been wanting to incorporate more of them into my diet.
Oats are heart-healthy, high in fiber and minerals. Oats do not have gluten in them, but since they are frequently harvested and processed on shared equipment with wheat or barley, you’ll want to double-check that your labels not only have a certified gluten-free label, but inquire to make sure the manufacturer follows purity protocols, instead of mechanically sorting oats. say gluten-free!
I had never used steel cut oats, but tried them out in baked oatmeal. I loved the texture! They didn’t get mushy like regular oats can. I added ground flaxseed after being reminded how high in fiber they are too.
I’ve mentioned before that we have a ton of peaches right now from our three backyard peach trees. The idea of making a peaches and cream baked oatmeal popped into my head and I’m glad I went with it!
The peaches add a little extra flavor and sweetness to this recipe.
This isn’t a very sweet breakfast, with only 1/3 cup of maple syrup as the sweetener. If you’d like to add a little more sweetness when serving, you could drizzle a little more maple syrup, honey or sprinkle on some brown sugar.
We enjoyed eating this with some cream or milk poured over it. Yum! This is definitely not a low calorie meal, but I feel like the trade-off of having a hearty, high-fiber, low sugar breakfast is worth it.
This hearty and filling breakfast will definitely make an appearance on our breakfast table again. I’m already looking forward to making an apple cinnamon version this fall. I currently enjoy making this delicious oatmeal recipe using these certified gluten free steel cut oats.
