Peach Cobbler Breakfast

Alright, this isn’t exactly a peach cobbler breakfast, but it’s really close.

I recently came across a muesli cereal by Bob’s Red Mill. I’ve already been familiar with the Bob’s line of goods for other reasons, primarily whole wheat and healthy pancakes (which I love).

In and of itself this muesli is a simple breakfast: nuts, wheats, raisins, etc, boiled in water, eaten, enjoyed. It’s probably the best muesli I’ve had, but still a little on the bland side. What makes it better, however, is more fruit! In particular, peaches and bananas.

To really give the cereal a fruitier flavour I decided to slice up a peach and cook it in the pot with the cereal. No other changes, just add the peach.

In and of itself this was a really tasty addition. Almost like a peach cobbler! What really put it over the top, however, was a dash of cinnamon, which really made it cobbler-esque, and then sliced banana on top. Mmmmmm. Tomorrow I think I’m going to replace the banana with blueberries (mostly because I just used the last banana, and still have blueberries). Pair this up with a good cup of coffee and it is an awesome way to start the day.

This is my breakfast. My 10 year old son, who is literally under doctor’s orders to gain weight however he can, enjoyed a bowl of mint-chocolate-chip ice cream with me for breakfast. Oh, to once again have the metabolism of a nuclear reactor.

So, a simple idea from a simple breakfast made tasty.


  1. Boil 1 cup water in a pot. Or a pan if you really want, I suppose.
  2. Add 1/2 cup Muesli cereal. I use cereal from Bob’s Red Mill, but any muesli will work.
  3. Slice a peach and add it into the mixture.
  4. Add cinnamon to taste.
  5. Cook 7 minutes. Remove from heat. Let stand 2 minutes.
  6. Add additional fruit garnish.

And there you have it: a healthy peach cobbler!

I’m adding this to @lenasveganliving fruits and veggies contest┬ábecause everyone deserves the opportunity to enjoy a peach cobbler.
