Blueberry Peach Oatmeal

One month down being a mom of two and some days I feel like I have everything under control; other days not so much! One thing I do always feel really good about is my breakfast. I’ve been on an oatmeal kick lately, and homemade is WAY better than those Quaker packs. With most of these ingredients already around your kitchen, here is a great recipe to get your entire day started, and to help keep you full until lunch!


  • 3/4 cup rolled oats – I like to use Bob’s Red Mill gluten free rolled oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk – I like my oatmeal thick so I don’t use as much milk, but feel free to add an extra splash if you need to!
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup diced peaches
  • Blueberries and honey for garnish


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine oats, milk, chia seeds, coconut oil, cinnamon, and peaches. Bring to a boil, and then reduce heat to simmer.
  2. Cook on low for about 5-6 more minutes, stirring occasionally so you don’t scorch the bottom! Once the oats and consistency is to your liking, pour into a serving bowl.
  3. Top with blueberries and honey, and enjoy your breakfast!

Hi Everyone! Welcome to my Lifestyle Blog! Thank you so much for coming to my site to learn a little more about me and our family. I am 29 years old, (oh my goodness almost 30...), and have been married to my amazing husband, Jeff, for five years. I am also a mom! Carter James is our adorable, little blondie who is three, and Payton Jeanne is our baby girl who just turned one this past July. Bella is our yellow lab, and Chuckles is our cat. Of course I had to mention the fur babies because I'm sure they will come up in this blog at some point. I've been wanting to start a blog for quite some time now, and I think God finally gave me the courage to do it. I have always enjoyed writing, and while this is new to me, I'd love to share a little more about my life with you. My hope is for you to read this blog and feel like you're having normal conversation with me, so feel free to ask questions and make comments! I look forward to sharing our former NFL family life, mommy tips, recipes, favorite bible verses, and more. Looking forward to sharing the next play with you!
