Peach Baked Oatmeal

DF GF V VG

A healthy baked oatmeal recipe using one of my favorite summer fruits: peaches! Make ahead for meal prep or a weekend brunch.

Peach season is right around the corner… aka the best season! I’m a huge peach fan and knew after my strawberry banana baked oatmeal was such a hit, I needed to make a peach baked oatmeal as well! Last week I saw peaches at our farmers’ market and I knew it was meant to be.

Peach Nutrition Facts

While peaches aren’t super high in any particular vitamins or minerals, they contain a wide variety of vitamins and minerals!

They are also loaded with antioxidants which I want to break down a little. I feel like “antioxidants” is a word thrown around a lot – but do you know what it actually means?! Antioxidants are plant compounds that fight oxidative damage that can lead to aging and disease. They bind with free radicals to neutralize the negative charges which can wreak havoc in your body. If you’re interested in diving deeper, I recommend this article from Healthline that breaks down free radicals in full!

Bottom line: we need to consume antioxidant-rich foods on the regular, and peaches are a great source of them!

Ingredients in Peach Baked Oatmeal

The ingredient for this peach baked oatmeal are simple and similar to my other baked oatmeal recipes. Here’s what you need:

  • rolled oats – old fashioned rolled oats works best for this recipe! 
  • unsweetened almond milk – I prefer using almond milk because I like the flavor, but you can use any type of milk you prefer and/or have on hand.
  • cinnamon – this adds a hint of sweetness and spice to the baked oatmeal.
  • vanilla – I add vanilla to almost all of my oatmeal recipes and love the subtle flavor it adds. 
  • almond extract – almond extract is such a unique flavor and it pairs really nicely with the flavor of peaches.
  • Ripe peaches – look for perfectly ripe, in-season peaches. 
  • Maple syrup – this adds the perfect amount of sweetness to the baked oatmeal. Feel free to use another liquid sweetener, if desired. 
  • Coconut oil or butter (optional) – this adds the healthy fats and richness to the baked oatmeal. Feel free to omit, if desired. 
  • Sea salt – a little salt brings out all the other flavors!

How to Make Peach Baked Oatmeal

This easy breakfast can be prepped ahead of time and is super simple to throw together! Grab a large bowl and mix together your oats, almond milk, cinnamon, vanilla, almond extract, 1 cup of peaches, maple syrup, coconut oil, and sea salt. Pour in a prepared baking dish that has been coated with cooking spray. Top with the rest of the sliced peaches (make into a fun design if you’re feeling fancy!).

Bake at 375ºF for 45-50 minutes, remove from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes. Divide up into meal prep containers for the week or enjoy right away!

For serving, I love topping the oatmeal bake with a splash of almond milk, fresh peaches and a drizzle of almond butter. The combo of peach and almond is so perfect!

Can You Make Baked Oatmeal Ahead of Time?

Yes, you can totally make baked oatmeal ahead of time. There are a couple options that work really well.

Option 1: Bake and Then Reheat Before Serving

  1. Prepare baked oatmeal as the recipe suggests. Once baked, let the oatmeal cool, cover the baking dish and place in the fridge. You can do this 1-2 days in advance. When ready to serve, take oatmeal dish from fridge, cover with foil and reheat in a 350°F oven for about 20 minutes. For individual portions, set toaster oven to 350°F and bake for 5-10 minutes or reheat in the microwave for 1 minute.

Option 2: Prep as Much as You Can Without Baking

  1. Mix together your dry ingredients in a bowl, cover and let sit out on the counter until morning.
  2. Mix together all the wet ingredients in another bowl, cover and store in the fridge until morning.
  3. In the morning, simply mix the wet and dry ingredients together, pour oatmeal mixture into your prepared baking dish and bake as recipe suggests.

Meal Prep This Baked Oatmeal

As I mentioned before, this oatmeal bake is awesome for meal prep.  To reheat, I just place a piece of the oatmeal bake into a microwave-safe bowl, break it apart a little bit with a spoon and then heat in the microwave for 30-60 seconds. Top with any toppings and enjoy a warm, healthy breakfast in less than 2 minutes.

Notes

      I loved this oatmeal. The texture and flavor are just what I hoped for! I actually used some frozen peaches. It needed a couple more minutes to bake but turned out great!

      This was such a yummy meal prep breakfast! Will be great for those mornings I am on the go. Which is pretty much the next several days. It was just the right amount of sweet too.

      We make this almost every weekend lately! So so good! I’ve tried it with nectarines and even used strawberries when fresh peaches weren’t in season. The kids love it too!
