Fresh Peach & Pecan Baked Oatmeal

Put breakfast on autopilot with this easy baked oatmeal recipe that uses seasonal fruit for sweetness and heart-healthy pecans for crunch!

Baked Oatmeal with Peaches

I love oatmeal for breakfast but in the summer, I usually take a break from having it hot and enjoy oats with yogurt or in muesli. However, this past weekend, I got a hankering for a bowl of oatmeal that I couldn’t shake.

Baked Oatmeal with Peaches

I hadn’t made baked oatmeal in a few years and had a jug of milk that was about to expire. I looked up recipes because I needed a refresher on how to make it. Cooking Light came to the rescue with their easy recipe. I don’t particularly like raisins and had some extra peaches laying around so made a few adjustments to create this late summer Fresh Peach & Pecan Baked Oatmeal. It’s the perfect base. I’ll probably make it again this weekend using figs and later in the fall with apples.

    I'm like you! I love oatmeal for breakfast but I've been enjoying ALL the smoothies this summer :) I'm sure I'll go back to oats when things cool down a bit. Reply

      Yes. With the hurricane cooling things down here in the south, I'm getting all of the feels for fall. Reply

    My daughter came home from a missions trip to Louisiana and wanted the baked oatmeal she had down there. I've never made it, so I'm trying your recipe tomorrow morning! Thanks! Reply

    I'm so glad I found this recipe! It's a delicious way to wake up on a cold morning! I put peaches on the bottom and on the top, and I didn't have pecans so I subbed in sliced almonds. Really wonderful! Thank you!

        Can canned peaches be used?! Reply

          Yes. Canned peaches work great. Just be sure to drain them well. Hope you enjoy it! Reply

    It doesn't say how much vanilla to use. Reply

      Hi Judy. Thanks for the note and pardon the omission. I will update the list. I’d use 1 teaspoon but the recipe works great with or without the vanilla. Reply
