Don’t you just love the sweet and juicy flavors of peaches? So it’s the perfect time to bake up some peaches and cream baked oatmeal for a sweet and healthy breakfast treat. The creamy goodness of the oatmeal combined with the tenderly sweet flavor of the peaches makes this a mouthwatering good family breakfast idea.
Around here peaches are in season. I crave peaches and apples throughout August and September. And, when I can find fresh ones, I like to use them in this dish.
This recipe calls for frozen peaches which makes it easy to have a favorite treat anytime of he year. But, if you happen to find some luscious, fresh, peaches then substitute 2-3 medium peaches for the frozen ones.
To make baked oatmeal breakfast quicker you can mix it up and bake it the night before. It keeps well in the fridge for up to three days, so in the morning you can just pop into a warm oven or microwave while you are getting ready for the day. Then, simply scoop into a bowl for a hearty and healthy breakfast for the family.
How to Make Peaches and Cream Baked Oatmeal
Start by pre-heat the oven to 350° F. Then, in a large mixing bowl combine oats, sweetener, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
In another bowl whisk the eggs slightly, then add the milk and melted butter and whisk to combine.
Next, pour the wet mixture into the oats and stir well.
Slice the peaches, and cut into ½ inch pieces. After, you’ve cut all of the peaches fold them into the oatmeal mixture. You aren’t layering them, but mixing them in. This way you’ll get a yummy peach in every bite.
Spray your baking dish with non-stick spray. I like to use coconut spray, but you can use whatever your preference is.
Then, pour the oatmeal into a glass baking dish and cover with foil.
Place the baking dish in the over and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the foil, then bake for an additional 15 minutes to crisp up the top.
This luscious baked oatmeal is a wonderful breakfast dish. Top it with whipped cream, and even some more sliced peaches on top if you’ve got some fresh ones. You can also add a few berries too for another flavor profile. The oats are packed with both fiber and protein so you don’t need another protein source.
But if you are like my family with several males around the table then you might want to add some chicken or turkey sausage links as a side. Since the oven is hot, you can just cook them in there during the last 15 minutes of the baking.
