Oatmeal Cookie Peach Cobbler

Why not take your favorite desserts and combine them into one great recipe?  That’s what I love about this delicious dessert I made last week for some friends who were visiting.  We all loved it; shall I dare say we all licked our plates clean?  While peaches are still so plentiful, juicy and firm, it is a good time to enjoy them covered in a whole grain, cinnamon spiced oatmeal cookie that literally bakes right on top of the bubbling sweet peaches.  I prefer them with the skins on for added fiber, but feel free to peel them if you’d like.

I love to add a little low-fat vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt because who doesn’t think it tastes so amazing that way?  Peaches are one of my favorite fruits.  Growing up in Southern California, I enjoyed all kinds of fresh fruits all year round; we were spoiled but didn’t really know it.  So now that I live in Idaho with it’s very distinct growing seasons, farmer’s market fresh peaches are only around just a few weeks of the year, unless you want to pay way too much for them later on in the year.  I take advantage of our short season and eat lots of peaches, especially on top of my Chobani Greek yogurt in My Go-To Breakfast Dish.
