Why I Love This Recipe

This Peach Baked Oatmeal is a warm, hearty breakfast that is perfect when you’re craving something cozy and comforting in the morning. 

Baked oatmeal is one of my favorite breakfasts because it is satiating, delicious, and so easy to make. It has a hearty texture that almost reminds me of bread pudding and is filled with warm, cozy spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. 

The best part is it requires only 5 minutes of prep time and 45-50 minutes in the oven and you’re left with breakfast for the week. I love make-ahead breakfasts because they takes the guess-work out of what to eat in the morning and only involve one clean up. I’m all about less mess!

You can also freeze baked oatmeal to make sure none of the leftovers ever go to waste!

This baked oatmeal calls for fresh peaches which are in season right now, but the recipe is totally adaptable to whatever fresh (or frozen or canned!) fruit you have on hand. It can also be tweaked based on your flavor preferences or what season we’re in.

Ingredients You’ll Need

Notes on Ingredients

peaches: I love making this with fresh peaches during the summer months when it’s available but frozen or canned/jarred peaches would work well for year-round. 

rolled oats: I like using old-fashioned rolled oats vs. quick oats since they’re larger and retain their texture better with baking. If you want to make a gluten-free version, be sure to grab gluten-free rolled oats. 

eggs: act to bind the ingredients together

brown sugar: helps to caramelize the peaches and provide some sweetness. You can substitute with coconut sugar or maple syrup depending on what you have on hand.

vanilla: for sweetness! 

butter: acts as a flavor enhancer 

unsweetened almond milk: I like using almond milk for it’s mild, neutral taste but feel free substitute with cow’s milk or your favorite non-dairy milk alternative.

cinnamon: adds a warm, cozy flavor 

nutmeg: provides a nutty, warm and slightly sweet flavor

salt: enhances the flavor 

baking powder: helps the oats rise in the oven 

pecans: completely optional but adds a satisfying crunch and texture

How to Make Peach Baked Oatmeal

step by step graphic of how to make peach baked oatmeal

  1. Combine wet ingredients. Whisk eggs, brown sugar, vanilla, melted butter, and almond milk in a large bowl until combined.
  2. Add dry ingredients. Add rolled oats, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, and salt, and stir to combine.
  3. Add peaches. Fold in chopped peaches. 
  4. Pour the mixture. Pour mixture into a 9-in square or 11×7 baking dish. Top with pecans, if desired. 
  5. Bake and serve. Bake until the center of the oatmeal is set, about 45-50 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack for at least 10-15 minutes. Serve hot or cold! 

Expert Tips

  1. Make this a make-ahead breakfast! Mixture can be made ahead of time (like on a Sunday!) and stored overnight in the fridge. Let sit out at room temperature while the oven preheats and stir mixture before baking. Bake in the morning and you’ve got breakfast for the entire week! 

Recipe FAQs

Are baked oats healthy for you? 

They sure are! Oats are a nutritious whole-grain that are rich in many vitamins and minerals including manganese, phosphorous, copper, B vitamins, iron, selenium, magnesium, and zinc. They are high in soluble fiber and have been linked to many health benefits like lowering cholesterol, reducing the risk of hypertension, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease, and promoting a healthy gastrointestinal tract. 

What’s the difference between baked oats and overnight oats?

Baked oats are like a fluffy, breakfast casserole that makes for a great meal-prep breakfast. Baked oatmeal is made by mixing oats with a liquid (usually milk or water), a sweetener (maple syrup, honey, brown sugar, etc.), eggs, and any additional ingredients for variety and flavor. They typically go straight from a mixing bowl to a baking dish and into the oven while overnight oats rest in the fridge overnight and are not cooked. Overnight oats tend to be more creamy and baked oatmeal is more set. 

Can I use frozen peaches instead of fresh?

Frozen peaches can be used instead of fresh, just be sure to thaw them and drain them beforehand. Baking times may vary where the use of frozen peaches may require an extra few minutes in the oven.
