Peach Baked Oatmeal – an easy breakfast recipe with fresh fruit, oats, and lightly sweetened with maple syrup. All it takes is ten minutes, and it’s ready to go in the oven. Warm baked oatmeal is a wonderful way to start the day!
I love this baked oatmeal recipe because it’s so easy and a great way to serve a crowd for breakfast. Not to mention there are fresh peaches mixed in!
It’s not overly sweet – just a touch of maple syrup or honey is plenty – so the natural sweetness of the peaches really shines through. Once it’s baked, just slice and serve! You can add a splash of milk with each serving or add other oatmeal topping you like.
If you don’t have a crowd to feed, this peach baked oatmeal keeps well in the refrigerator. So, why not make a batch on Sunday for meal prep? You’ll have an easy breakfast to enjoy during the busy week! It’s easy to reheat and will save you time. That’s always a good thing.
And during the Fall you could try switching to this Cinnamon Apple Baked Oatmeal for a cozier and more Fall-ish option.

Can you use frozen peaches instead of fresh ones?
Yes, you can use the same amount of frozen peaches, but you will want to thaw them first.
How to Make Baked Oatmeal
Whisk the egg, milk, maple syrup (or honey) and vanilla in a medium bowl.
Mix in all of the dry ingredients (except the brown sugar) along with the melted butter (or coconut oil). Fold in the diced peaches.
Transfer the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle the brown sugar over the top.
Bake the oatmeal at 375°F for about 30 minutes or until the middle is set. Allow it to cool at room temperature for 10 minutes.
Scoop the peach oatmeal into bowls and serve with a splash of milk!
Other Ways to Serve It
- Fruit: Top each serving with more fresh peach slices or try sprinkling some berries like blueberries, raspberries, or chopped strawberries over the top.
- Milk: I like it with some milk and you can use your favorite like whole milk, 2%, or non-dairy milk like almond milk.
- Nuts: Add some chopped nuts like chopped walnuts, almonds, or pecans.
- Other toppings: Top it with a spoonful of nut butter like cashew butter, almond butter, or other nut butter you like. Or add some Greek yogurt!
How to Store It
Make Ahead Tips: You can make and bake the oatmeal ahead of time. Let it cool to room temperature and then portion it out into containers for easy breakfasts during the week. It will keep well for three to four days in the refrigerator.
Leftovers: If you have leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the fridge for three to four days. They are easy to reheat in the microwave.
Every bite of this baked oatmeal has fresh peach flavor! It’s so easy and a great way to start the day. I hope you try it soon!
