This past week was a bit rough around here. After an entire month of not needing to use his g-tube, Sumner decided that solid foods are okay and that formula is not okay. He also completely changed his sleep routine. Needless to say, this mama and daddy are exhausted.
Our CSA sent the most beautiful looking plums and peaches this week. I love end of summer fruits and it’s nice to be able to share them with Sumner. This week he’s having peach plum crisp for breakfast.
As usual, I made the fruit base at the beginning of the week and I add the rest of the ingredients on the day of. This helps to cut down morning prep time and keeps us all just a little bit happier.
- 154 g plums (~2 plums)
- 273 grams chopped peaches (~2 peaches)
- 28 grams olive oil
- 28 grams Earth Balance
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
- 10 grams walnut butter (optional)
- 7 grams oatmeal
- 40 milliliters juice
- 1 serving probiotic (optional, we like this one)
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- Add the plums, peaches, olive oil, Earth Balance, cinnamon, and vanilla to an oven-safe container and mix to combine.
- Bake for approximately 45 minutes or until fork-tender. Make sure to stir partway through the baking time.
- Allow fruit mixture to cool to room temperature.
- Place fruit mixture and walnut butter into a blender and process until smooth.
- Divide between 5 four-ounce containers and refrigerate.
Assembling for breakfast
- Pull out one of your fruit bases from the fridge.
- Warm your juice or other liquid in the microwave for about 10 seconds to take the chill off and help with mixing.
- Add the oatmeal, probiotic, and juice to the fruit base. Stir well.
- Sumner is over a year old and we’re slowly introducing allergens such as nuts. You can omit the walnut butter if you’re avoiding nuts and/or allergens.
- You can substitute any fat or oil that you prefer instead of Earth Balance and olive oil. I like the flavor of this combo. You can also reduce the amount of oil if you prefer. Sumner gets extra calories snuck into all of his food on purpose to help him gain weight.
- As written, the recipe makes five jars at approximately 180 calories each. (Yes, we’re going for high-calorie food here!)
- You might be wondering why I use Earth Balance instead of butter. It’s because I’m allergic to dairy. I like to try the things Sumner eats to show him that they really do taste good and I can’t do that if I use actual butter.
