Baked Peach Oatmeal

pan of baked peach oatmeal

Enjoy the lovely flavor of peaches year round in baked oatmeal. Sweetness and spice, protein and fiber, this is good warm from the oven or reheat during the week to spoon up a quick and easy breakfast.

My ideal breakfast is low effort but big on flavor and good-for-me (and you) ingredients. Though it tastes like peach cobbler, his baked oatmeal with canned peaches, ginger, walnuts, and yogurt checks all the boxes. And the peach juice adds more peachy flavor!

Besides toasting the walnuts, this is a stir together and bake recipe. An 8″ x 8″ pan serves six, but if your family is smaller, you get leftovers throughout the week. Another box checked on the ideal breakfast.

How to make Baked Peach Oatmeal

Because you can make this ahead, this is great for brunch or company.

  1. Toast the walnuts as the oven heats. They should lightly brown and smell, well, toasty. Set aside to cool.
  2. Stir the oats together with the other dry ingredients.
  3. Mix the milk, egg, yogurt, peach juice, and other liquids together until smooth. You don’t want big egg clumps.
  4. Bake until set and lightly browned, about 30 minutes.

  • Yield: 6 1x
  • Category: Breakfast
  • Method: Baked


  • 1 1/2 cups steel-cut oats
  • 1 cup toasted walnuts, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt

  2. Lightly spray 8 x 8-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl stir together oats, nuts, ginger, and salt.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix milk, egg, yogurt, honey, vanilla, and peach juice together so that the egg is broken up and incorporated.
  5. Pour liquid ingredients into oat mixture, add peaches, stir to combine. Transfer all to prepared 8″ x 8″ pan.
  6. Bake at 375℉ for 30-35 minutes, until mixture is set and lightly browned.

Canned peaches make this convenient. The peach juice adds more peachy flavor. If using fresh or frozen peaches, increase milk by 1/2 cup to replace the peach juice.

  • Top with yogurt
  • Pour milk over
  • Add sliced banana or blueberries if you want more fruit.

  1. This turned out great. I used frozen peach slices and had on hand to use up McCann “Quick cooking steel cut oats” and was pleased with how it baked. I cut back on the walnut amount just to keep calories a bit better for me. Will make it again and will try the long cooking regular steel cut oats.
