This blueberry peach oatmeal is so easy to make and loaded with fiber. It’s a delicious bowl of oats that will keep you feeling full and energized all morning.
I know oatmeal isn’t super summery (unless we’re talking overnight oats), but peaches are in season and for whatever reason I was craving a big bowl of oats the other morning so I decided to create this tasty peach oatmeal with blueberries!
It’s just rolled oats, cooked on the stove top but spruced up with some local summer goodness. We bought the peaches from the farmer’s market last weekend and Isaac hand-picked the blueberries at a local farm. Hooray for fresh and local produce!
The fresh peaches and berries add a subtle sweetness, but these oats aren’t overly sweet like most packaged oats. If you’re in the mood for something a tad sweeter, feel free add a little stevia or natural sugar to the oats or drizzle a bit of maple syrup or honey on top.
Is Oatmeal Healthy?
Yes! Oatmeal is loaded with so many health benefits! For starters, oats are a whole grain, low in saturated fat, low in cholesterol, naturally gluten-free and a good source of fiber, thiamin, magnesium, phosphorus and manganese.
Here’s What You Need
- old fashioned rolled oats – I typically use gluten-free old fashioned rolled oats.
- water – I used water for this recipe, but you could totally use any milk of choice. Almond milk would be great!
- fresh peaches – use ripe, in-season peaches for the best results!
- fresh blueberries – you can use frozen blueberries, but fresh is best. If using frozen, just thaw the fruit and follow the recipe as normal.
- vanilla extract – a wonderful flavor enhancer.
- cinnamon – brings all the flavors together.
- ground flaxseed – for some added fiber. Chia seeds would also be a great alternative.
- almond butter – for some healthy fat and protein. I love the combo of almonds and peaches, but any nut or seed butter will work.
tip! For some added protein stir in a scoop of protein powder once your oats have been removed from the heat. If the consistency gets too thick, add more water or milk.
Can I Cook This Blueberry Peach Oatmeal in the Microwave?
I prefer to cook my oatmeal on the stovetop, but you can absolutely microwave it!
Just combine your oats, water, 1/2 cup peaches, 1/4 cup blueberries, vanilla and cinnamon into a microwave safe bowl with plenty of room for the oats to bubble up. Microwave for 1 minute, stir and then microwave at 30 second increments, stirring between each one.
Cook until the oatmeal is the consistency you like – I typically cook mine for about 3 minutes total but you’ll know it’s ready when most of the liquid is absorbed and the oats are hot.

Looking forward to trying this with jarred of peaches I have on hand. I’ve never tried it with blueberry. Yum!
Let me know how it turns out!!
Ok this is so good and does not even need extra sweetener! I added about 6 grams of Orgain vanilla protein powder, only 1/2 a peach and 1/4 cup blueberries (all cooked into the oatmeal). The almond butter pairs so well with peaches and blueberries.
This was the best! Perfect combination of blueberries, peaches and oatmeal. I’m still full 2 1/2 hours later:)
Woo!! So glad to hear you enjoyed this oatmeal, Hope! Thanks so much for the review. I really appreciate it!
Hi! What other nut butter would you recommend? I have peanut butter and cashew but I am not sure which one to use Ty!
Hi Cierra – any other nut or seed butter will work, so whichever you’d prefer!
I have oatmeal made on the stover every day and will whisk in an egg towards the end for added protein, it makes the oatmeal really light and fluffy too- it’s my favorite way to eat it!
Yes, I agree it makes it so light and fluffy! Such a delicious addition of protein. Thank you for your review + star rating, I so appreciate it!
