Yummy. Yummy. Yummy.
Peaches have always been one of my favourite fruits. I put it in oatmeal, in banana ice cream, in crepes, and of course – directly in my mouth. So sweet and juicy. No other stone fruit compares to the deliciousness that is peaches!
When summer comes, I buy baskets and baskets of them at a time, and I still always seem to eat them all up within days. I just can’t get enough.
And now that summer has come to an end, that means my lovely peaches are making their way out of my kitchen soon. So sad. But peaches that aren’t in season are even sadder, so I rarely eat peaches during any season other than summer.
And with just a tablespoon of maple syrup in the entire pan, these are a healthy breakfast bar that any peach lover would enjoy!
If you don’t have access peaches, you can replace them with another fruit of your choice, such as strawberries or blueberries. You may have to adjust the amount of fruit added, though. Enjoy!

- In a large bowl, combine oats, chopped dates, chopped almonds, chia seeds, baking powder, and cinnamon.
- In a medium bowl, combine non-dairy milk, vanilla and peaches. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until combines, making sure to not mush the peaches too much.
