Peach oatmeal breakfast bowl

Monsoon is the season for stone fruits like peaches, plums and nectarines. This recipe shows you how to use fresh peaches combined with oatmeal for a nutritious yet flavorful take on the conventional oatmeal. The addition of coconut sugar and peaches grilled using coconut oil lends a wonderful tropical flavour to this one bowl meal.
Bonus points – it is vegan!

I make this recipe when luscious juicy peaches are in season, for a welcome change to my standard breakfast staples. Do try it and tell me what you think!
