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
Old fashioned rolled oats (make sure they’re gluten-free if you want this oatmeal bake to be gluten-free)
Unsweetened almond milk
Coconut oil or butter (optional)
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.
