Why you'll love this recipe
Here are some reasons why you need this peach baked oatmeal recipe in your life:
Peaches! - we're going all out with triple the peaches in this baked oatmeal. They're blended into the wet ingredients, diced and stirred throughout and then we added a generous drizzle of peach jam too! Yum!
Satisfying - packed full of goodness and the satiating ability of the oats, this breakfast will keep you full for the whole morning.
Customisable - mix it up using different fruits, mix-ins and try different things. It's vegetarian anyway, but can be made dairy free if needed.
Easy - it's easy to make because we use a blender for the wet ingredients and it's simple to stir everything else in together.
You only need simple ingredients for this peach baked oatmeal recipe, this is what you'll need:
Old fashioned oats - we love to use old fashioned rolled oats for this baked oatmeal as they give a great texture and are high in fibre too.
Peaches - we use fresh peaches and peach jam and for extra flavour you'll also be blending some peaches into the milk. Triple peach factor!
Pistachios - peaches go especially well with pistachios, roughly chopped these add additional texture and nutrition.
Dairy - we use dairy milk but feel free to make this dairy free with oat milk and a butter alternative. We don't recommend coconut oil though as it would overpower the delicious peach flavour.
We know you love to mix things up with customisations and substitutions so here are some of our recommendations for this peach baked oatmeal recipe:
Oatmeal cups - this recipe can easily be made into baked oatmeal cups using a lined or lightly greased muffin tin. We haven't tested, but you should get at least 12 cups from this recipe.
Nuts - feel free to omit the pistachios but they are highly recommended, or you can switch them out with an alternative nut, we recommend pecans or almonds.
Jam - you could easily switch out the peach jam with apricot, blueberry, strawberry or cherry jam, all would be amazing.
Milk - use whole milk for an extra creamy baked oatmeal, or use oat, almond or coconut milk.

How to make ahead
We often like to save time in the week by making our meals ahead of time. This peach baked oatmeal is a great way to get ahead and save time:
Bake and reheat - this is our favourite option, it prevents extra washing up during the week. Simply make the baked oatmeal ahead of time, allow to cool completely and store as recommended below. If you have frozen it, you'll need to defrost it before reheating.
Prep - you can prepare the wet and dry ingredients separately and store in appropriate containers. The wet ingredients can stay in the fridge for up to 3 days before hand.
We recommend adding the melted butter at the point of making the recipe, otherwise it will set in the fridge.
How to serve
Here are some recommendations to serve with this peach baked oatmeal:
- Serve warm with milk or yoghurt.
- Drizzle your favourite nut butter over the top, we've recently discovered pistachio butter and oh my is it good!
- Get more indulgent with a drizzle of cream or squirt of whipped cream.
How to store
These are the best ways to store your peach baked oatmeal:
Fridge - cover the baking dish with clingfilm or foil and store in the fridge for up to 5 days. You can take a portion whenever you need and reheat it individually, or reheat the whole baked oatmeal.
Freezer - cool the baked oatmeal, cut into eight portions and wrap them individually in clingfilm and place in a freezer bag. Store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
How to reheat
Here are two recommendations for reheating your peach baked oatmeal:
Oven - preheat your oven to 180C/350F and reheat the baked oatmeal as a whole for 20 minutes until hot all the way through, then serve.
Microwave - reheat individual portions in microwave safe containers for 1.5 - 2 minutes until the baked oatmeal is piping hot in the middle.
