We’ve put together this same recipe using blueberries.

You could even do a mixed blend of different berries. That would be a yummy idea!

Why You’ll Love this Baked Peach Oatmeal

  • It’s a great make-ahead recipe! Do you often reach for quick solutions to the breakfast rush? Cold cereal and granola bars have their place, but sometimes we need something warm and hearty – and quick! This recipe can be made ahead of time, so it takes no extra fuss in the morning. Pop it in the oven, get yourself dressed and ready for the day, and it will be baked by the time you’re done.
  • It’s delicious! Peaches make a sweet and healthy base for a cinnamon-oatmeal topping. You likely won’t have leftovers of this healthy breakfast dish.
  • You can enjoy peaches any time! Many peach recipes assume that you have extra fresh peaches on hand, but when it’s not peach season, that can be pricy. However, with this breakfast recipe, you can enjoy canned or frozen peaches at any time of year.
  • It’s an easy recipe to double! Whip up a double batch, pop it in the freezer, and future you will thank you. It’s also a great recipe to make in individual portions. Use small Pyrex containers or other oven safe dishes, divide the filling and topping up among them, and you’ve got a perfect, single-serve hot breakfast option.
  • It’s a crowd-pleaser! The whole family will enjoy the sweet peaches and crispy oatmeal batter. If you often play the role of “short order cook” when it come to serving breakfasts, give yourself a morning off and serve baked peach oatmeal instead.

Ingredients You’ll Need For This Delicious Breakfast

My peach crisp recipe uses simple ingredients to make a delicious breakfast the whole family will enjoy.

Ingredients for Peach Oatmeal Bake Sitting Out on White Marble Counter Top
  • 2 Sticks of Butter – You’ll need two sticks of butter, and you’ll need to melt them. If you use salted butter, then omit the salt from the ingredient list.
  • 1 Cup of Flour – I like to use all-purpose flour, but any flour works for this. You can do a 1:1 swap, since it’s simply part of the crumble that goes on top. Almond flour is a great option.
  • 1 Cup of Oats – You can’t make an oatmeal bake without oats. Use steel-cut oats for a little toothsome crunch, and old-fashioned oats and quick oats for a softer texture.
  • 1/3 Cup of Brown Sugar – Brown sugar adds a slight molasses flavor. If you don’t have any on hand, mix cane sugar and pure maple syrup together. You’ll get something similar. Want to use a little more than a 1/3 cup measure? That will work just fine. 😉
  • Peaches – For this recipe, you’ll be using either canned or frozen peaches. Peach slices or diced peaches are both fine. If you used canned peaches, be sure to drain the liquid away first. Peaches are often canned in a thick syrup, rather than it’s own juice. For frozen peaches, set them out on the counter to thaw out a bit. No need to drain away the juice.
  • Dash of Salt – Of course. But if you’ve using salted butter, you won’t need to add more salt.
  • Dash of Cinnamon – Cinnamon adds a little sweetness and a great flavor. You can also add a bit of nutmeg and vanilla extract, if you’d like. My mouth is watering.

How To Make Peach Baked Oatmeal

This easy peach recipe takes 30-40 minutes, from beginning to end.

  1. Pour your peaches into your baking dish. If you’re using canned peaches packed in syrup, be sure to drain the syrup off first. They’ll be plenty of sweetness already.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine melted butter, flour, oats, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon.
  3. Sprinkle the oat mixture on top of the peaches, and bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes.

Ways To Change Up This Baked Oatmeal Recipe

  • Try different fruits! This recipe works great with many types of fresh fruit, such as berries, pears, and apples as well. You can also use a bag of frozen berries, or a can of apple pie filling.
  • If you need to avoid dairy, swap out the butter for melted coconut oil.
  • Do you have leftover oatmeal from earlier in the week? Use it in place of the oat topping.

How To Store Leftover Peach Baked Oatmeal

You probably won’t have leftovers of this delicious and sweet breakfast recipe, but if you do, you have storage options.

Place the leftover baked oatmeal in an airtight container and pop it in the fridge. It will stay fresh for five days.

Or if you’d rather, cover the top of the baking dish with plastic wrap and leave it on the counter. It’ll be good for a day or two that way.

To reheat the rest of the week, simply put a spoonful into a microwave safe bowl and reheat it for 30 to 60 seconds.

If you need to warm up a whole dish worth of leftovers, pop it back in the oven until warm.

What To Do With Fresh Peaches

My peach baked oatmeal recipe is great for canned and frozen peaches.

It’s nice to not have to fiddle with peeling and slicing the peaches.

However, if you’re smack dab in the middle of peach season and find yourself with an abundance of fresh peaches (or windfall peaches that are soft and bruised), you can tweak this recipe to accommodate them.

The crispy oatmeal topping will stay the same.

Canned peaches and frozen peaches have already softened and released their sweet juice.

To use fresh peaches, first peel, slice, and remove the pit from about five peaches.

Then, toss them in a bowl with a tablespoon of lemon juice, a tablespoon of cornstarch, and a quarter cup of sugar.

Be sure to coat the peach slices evenly!

Put this peach mixture into your casserole dish, and continue with the recipe as usual.

Perfect Pairings For This Baked Peach Breakfast

You can enjoy baked peach oatmeal on it’s own, but it pairs so well with other foods!

  • For a boost of protein that will keep you full all morning, serve a spoonful of the peach oatmeal of a bowl of Greek yogurt.
  • The whole grains in the oatmeal topping go great with a satiating fat, such as a few sausage links or bacon slices.
  • Treat this peach crisp as an after-dinner dessert. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to the side. Perfection!

    How much of the peaches should be used for the recipe? I didn’t see an amount for them.

    1. thislittlehomeofmineblog@gmail.com says:

      Hey Kerah! We’re definitely going to work to clarify this – We usually just use a regular size bag of peaches, but I’m going to try to get the ounce amount on that and update this post. Thanks for following along with us here – So grateful you stopped by!

  2. Peaches aren’t even in the ingredients list…am I missing something?
