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!

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!

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.

  1. I love this recipe. I made it all summer for my breakfast at work. I top mine with almonds, sliced banana and so much almond milk. I’m now going to try your apple baked oatmeal recipe minus the raisins.

    • Yayy! I’m so happy to hear that you loved this peach baked oatmeal, Courtney. And I can’t wait to hear what you think of the apple version. 🙂 I really appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment + star rating. The ratings are super helpful, so thank you!

  2. This was delicious! Almost like cobbler instead of oatmeal! This will definitely go in our regular family breakfast rotation!

    • Hi Sherry! Thank you so much for sharing and for coming back to leave a comment and star rating. I so appreciate it! Coconut milk is a perfect substitute for the almond milk and adds a bit of creaminess – I’m sure it was delicious! The cook time can definitely depend on your oven. It’s a good thing you kept your eye on it so it didn’t overcook. 🙂

  3. This was the easiest recipe- perfect for early morning before everyone gets up or while meal prepping. I had all of the ingredients on hand!

  4. Wow! I’m so glad I finally found your recipes!!!
    This past week, I got some over ripe bananas and peaches marked down and today I realized I HAD TO do something with them. When I found your Peach Oatmeal recipe, I thought I could add some bananas. Once I got into it, I realized I had to double the recipe and I didn’t have any almond extract,enough maple syrup or any almond milk so I just omitted the almond extract, used 2% milk and added a little sweetener. Just a tad. I’m diabetic. And I’m glad I only added a small amt because the bananas add so much sweetness! Thanks so much also for using coconut oil. I only recently learned how important it is to our bodies!!! Just Thanks So Much!!! Can’t wait for more!!!

    • Hi Kim! Welcome to Eating Bird Food. I’m so excited that you enjoyed this recipe, even with a few changes based on what you had at home! And thank you so much for coming back to leave a comment and let me know how the peach baked oatmeal turned out. The comments and star ratings are so helpful so I really appreciate it!

  5. Made this yesterday for breakfasts this week – delicious! It’s peach season here in CO, so needed to use them up. Happy to have something healthy and filling for my second grader’s first week back to school.

    I added some unsweetened shredded coconut, vanilla protein powder and chopped walnuts/pecans and used some date paste instead of maple syrup. Yum! Love your blog and recipes.

  6. I’ve been baking this every few days for the last month, and it’s absolutely delicious and amazingly healthy. As I was eating it yesterday, I called my husband and said “I just figured out why we love this oatmeal so much! It tastes so much like we’re eating bread pudding for breakfast!” It really does have that consistency. We reheat a piece each morning and pour a little almond milk over it….YUM!!! I’m going to be so sad when peaches go out of season.

  7. This was great. Thank you for the recipe. Very quick to prepare and very easy to substitute ingredients I used apples instead of peaches and honey instead of maple syrup. I am excited to try with peaches next time I have e some on hand. I bet this would also be great with blueberries. Thanks again!

  8. Love this. Everything I want in a breakfast and more! Such a quick and easy make ahead breakfast for my family. Thanks so much for sharing!

  9. Made this oatmeal yesterday for meal prep. I did 1/2 cup maple syrup and it was amazing! If you can try try try it. It taste like peach cobbler but in oatmeal. Soooooo good

  10. I have made this a couple times since your post, it is one of my favorites! I made it on top of stove instead of the oven and left out the almond extract and coconut as I did not have them, taste was great! Thank you!

  11. I made this recipe without the syrup, mostly because I didn’t have any. it still turned out great however, the oats were not sweet. I topped with bananas and some date syrup and it was like magic in my mouth! the perfect amount of sweetness!
