No more buying peaches and cream oatmeal packets with those artificial peaches. This oatmeal with real peaches and real cream is so much better that it's likely you'll never be able to return to the packets once you've tried this.
1/2cupcanned peachesdrained or fresh peaches, diced
2Tbspcream or half-n-half
In a large microwave safe bowl, combine oats, milk, water, sugar, optional cinnamon and salt. If using fresh peaches add them to oatmeal mixture before microwaving so they will cook and become softened.
Microwave mixture on HIGH power for 3 1/2 - 4 minutes. Remove from microwave and stir in vanilla. If using canned peaches fold them into oatmeal after microwaving. Drizzle oatmeal with cream. Serve warm.
*Quick oats will work too just reduce cook time by about 1 - 1 1/2 minutes.
