One of my favorite parts of summer (aside from the sunny skies and warm weather) is the bounty of fresh produce. Living in Delaware, our farms provide some of the freshest fruits and vegetables. I love the end of the summer when stone fruits are in season and you can go peach picking or pick up peaches at your local farmers market.
With breakfast being the most important meal of the day, I like to feed my children (and myself) something healthy. I also struggle to get out of the door every day. This Peach Baked Oatmeal is the answer to my breakfast woes. It is perfect to make ahead of time and reheat on busy weekday mornings. Plus, this baked oatmeal is made without bananas so it will not have any banana taste. Full of healthy, sweet peaches and whole grain oats, your kids will love it and you will feel good feeding them a wholesome breakfast.

Ingredients and Substitutions
- Coconut Oil: Coconut oil is the healthy option when making Peach Baked Oatmeal. If you do not have coconut oil, substitute vegetable oil or melted butter.
- Cinnamon Applesauce: Use regular applesauce here. You could also replace the applesauce completely with vegetable oil or coconut oil.
- Honey Greek Yogurt: The Honey Greek Yogurt gives this recipe a sweet taste. This is the Honey Greek Yogurt that my family loves. If you cannot find Honey Greek Yogurt, add a tablespoon of honey to plain Greek Yogurt.
- Almond Milk: Substitute the milk that you have on hand.
- Eggs: You could substitute liquid egg whites although this has not been tested.
- Sugar: I don’t recommend removing the sugar in this recipe as the recipe calls for so little. If looking for a natural sweetener, you could use a banana (not tested).
- Oats: Use Old Fashioned Oats for this recipe not quick cooking or steel cut oats.
- Baking Powder
- Peaches: Substitute your favorite fruit! Nectarines would be a delicious option. Berries such as raspberries, strawberries and blueberries are good in baked oatmeal.
Step by Step Instructions
- Combine Wet Ingredients. In a large mixing bowl, combine melted coconut oil, applesauce, Honey Greek Yogurt, Almond Milk, eggs and sugar. Stir to combine.
- Mix Dry Ingredients. In a small bowl, stir together the old fashioned oats, cinnamon and baking powder.
- Mix wet and dry ingredients. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in the large mixing bowl. Stir to combine.
- Stir in peaches.
- Pour mixture into an 8×8 pan.
- Make cinnamon sugar. In a small bowl, mix together cinnamon and sugar. Sprinkle on top of oatmeal bake.
- Bake. Bake Peach Oatmeal for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Oatmeal is done when the middle is set and the sides begin to brown and pull away from the pan.
Storing and Reheating Instructions
Store Peach Baked Oatmeal in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3 days. Reheat individual pieces in the microwave for 30-45 seconds until heated throughout.
Freeze Peach Baked Oatmeal for an easy breakfast! Slice into pieces and wrap in plastic wrap. Remove piece the night before you plan to eat and allow the oatmeal to thaw in the refrigerator. Reheat in the microwave.
Why does this Baked Oatmeal have no banana?
Most baked oatmeal uses banana to naturally sweeten the dish and can be a good substitute for butter. This dish uses healthy coconut oil and applesauce in place of butter so a banana is not needed.
How to Serve Baked Oatmeal
- Slice and serve with fresh sliced fruit
- Serve warm on top of Greek Yogurt with fruit on top (my favorite)
- For extra protein, serve hard boiled eggs on the side
- Serve with a scoop of ice cream for a sweet breakfast or dessert!
Is Baked Oatmeal Healthy?
Yes, baked oatmeal is healthy! This Peach Baked Oatmeal recipe is loaded with whole grains from the oats, healthy fats (coconut oil) and peaches. This recipe has minimal added sugar. This is a very healthy alternative to sugar filled cereals and fattening breakfast sandwiches.
Can you freeze baked oatmeal? Yes, you can freeze baked oatmeal! Simply slice baked oatmeal into individual pieces and wrap them in plastic wrap. When ready to enjoy, let the baked oatmeal thaw in the refrigerator overnight and reheat in the microwave the next morning.
Is baked oatmeal good the next day? Yes, baked oatmeal is good the next day. The flavors come together and the oatmeal congeals after cooking. It is perfect to reheat and enjoy!
What fruit is best in oatmeal? Berries and stone fruit are delicious in baked oatmeal. I like to use nectarines, strawberries, blueberries and blackberries to naturally sweeten my baked oatmeal.
