A hearty and filling morning treat
Oatmeal is one of the best meals to enjoy in the morning. It’s packed with nutritious vitamins and minerals, and it supplies energy to help you power through your morning! Knowing that, I can’t think of a better way to start your day than with this delicious peach baked oatmeal.
Made in a casserole dish, it’s a multi-serving recipe that you can enjoy throughout the entire week!
This oatmeal peach bake is made using a delicious mix of ingredients like cinnamon, maple syrup, and perfectly sweet peaches. The best part? We’re sneaking in white chocolate chips for extra rich flavor!
Ingredients in peach baked oatmeal
Between the white chocolate, peaches, pecans, and maple syrup, this breakfast is quite the treat! Here’s everything you’ll need to bring it to life:
- Rolled oats: Start with 2 cups of rolled oats. This will form the base of the “batter” while also providing protein and healthy nutrients!
- Baking powder: To help the oatmeal bake cook properly, use 1 tsp of baking powder.
- Cinnamon: Add flavor with 1 tsp of cinnamon.
- Salt: Follow the cinnamon with 1/4 tsp of salt.
- Almond milk: Next, help the batter reach the proper consistency by including 1 and 3/4 cups of almond milk (or any non-dairy milk).
- Eggs: 2 eggs will help all of the ingredients bind together properly.
- Maple syrup: Sweeten things up with 1/3 cup of pure maple syrup. I love to use this as a delicious and all-natural substitute for white sugar!
- Vanilla extract: Complete the flavor with 1 tsp of vanilla extract.
- Peaches: Add fruity deliciousness with 2 medium peaches, diced into small pieces.
- Chopped pecans: Add some healthy crunch with 1/2 cup of chopped pecans (or another nut).
- White chocolate chips: Finally, finish off the bake with 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips!
Tools needed to create this recipe
To make this recipe, you’ll need a few various kitchen items. Before starting, gather an 8×8 casserole dish, large and medium-sized mixing bowls, a stirring utensil, and a spatula. For measuring out ingredients, you will need the following sized cups: 1/4 tsp, 1 tsp, 1/3 cup, 1/2 cup, 3/4 cup, and 1 cup.
How to make this peach baked oatmeal recipe
This delicious (and easy) meal is made much like any baked casserole or dessert. Start by mixing the dry ingredients, and then move to the wet. Then, combine the two, add to the dish, and bake!
To begin, preheat the oven to 375°F and grease an 8×8 casserole dish. If using a different-sized dish, adjust the cooking time accordingly.
In a large bowl, mix together the rolled oats, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
Then, use a medium bowl to stir together the almond milk, eggs, maple syrup, and vanilla.
Add the wet mixture to the dry and stir until combined.
Then, add the peaches, pecans, and white chocolate chips.
Pour the mixture into the baking dish and press down to make sure the oats are soaked. If desired, add a few peach slices to the top.
Bake, uncovered, for around 40-45 minutes until lightly golden brown.
Let cool for 5 minutes, and then serve.
Store in the refrigerator.
As with many oatmeal recipes, the required ingredients are pretty flexible. Here are some optional swaps you can make based on what you have in your fridge and pantry.
Almond milk can be easily replaced with any non-dairy milk. Use a 1:1 ratio.
Prefer berries over peaches? That’s an easy swap! Simply replace the peaches with a couple of handfuls of your favorite berries. Strawberries would be particularly delicious!
Feel free to use what you prefer, whether that’s pecans, peanuts, walnuts, or cashews.
Not only does this peach oatmeal taste delish, it’s also a healthy way to start your day, fuel up at snack time, or enjoy as a dinner!
Oats are known for their health benefits, but do you know what those benefits are? When you enjoy just a single serving oatmeal, you’re providing your body with antioxidants, regular digestion, gut and skin health benefits, and more.
After enjoying your delicious baked oatmeal, any leftovers should be stored in the refrigerator. Transfer to a lidded airtight container, or simply cover the casserole dish in tinfoil or plastic wrap. Enjoy within about 4 days.
