Sweet juicy peaches mixed with cinnamon and spices make this easy baked oatmeal a heavenly breakfast treat!
Oatmeal is one of my go to breakfasts, I always have some on hand and its easy to play with different flavors to change things up a bit. And if you’ve never tried baked oatmeal, you are in for a treat! Something magical happens in the oven when you bake oatmeal, it comes out a cross between a bowl of your classic oatmeal and like an oatmeal bar. I love it because it makes an easy and healthy dish for entertaining, and makes fabulous leftovers – bake once enjoy for multiple days,
Every summer the fruit I look forward to the most is peaches. I can’t get enough of them when they are ripe and in season. And I really love making all sorts of delicious things with them in the kitchen – like my peach iced tea (just like the one at the Olive Garden), peach jam and even peach BBQ sauce. I usually try to bake a few things too. This year this peach oatmeal has taken over. Every time I make it, I look forward to eating breakfast in the morning.
If it isn’t peach season don’t worry, you can still make this with frozen peaches too. Also I found that I liked it a bit more when I used pealed peaches mixed in, but you can totally leave the skins on too – it’s much faster to assemble that way. I also liked how fancy a few peach slices looked on top, but that’s optional too. Since I always have almond milk on hand, that’s what I usually use to make my oatmeal. The original one work great here since it’s unsweetened and will work with any flavor.

- 2 Tbsp brown sugar
- ½ tsp baking powder

- pinch allspice
- pinch salt
- 1 egg
- 1 cup almond milk, original unsweetened
- 1½ cups diced peached, divided
- Preheat oven to 375. Spray an 2 quart baking dish with cooking spray, set aside.
- In a small bowl, combine oats, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and salt. Toss to combine. In a second bowl, whisk together egg and milk.
- Place ¾ of the peaches into the prepared baking dish and cover with oat mixture. Pour milk mixture over the oats then top with remaining peaches.
