Peaches and Cream Baked Oatmeal
Peaches and Cream Baked Oatmeal- made with juicy peaches and dairy-free milk, this prep ahead breakfast will keep you full and satisfied for hours. Dairy-free and gluten-free with vegan option.
We’re going back in time to revisit a recipe that I originally posted six years ago. SIX YEARS! Clearly it’s a good one since I find myself making it on a regular basis when peaches are in season.
Actually the last time I made it I added blueberries too and it was so good. But it’s also totally fine if you want to keep things simple and just go the peach route on its own.
Peaches n’ Cream Baked Oatmeal Ingredients
- Rolled Oats- I usually use rolled oats because that’s what I tend to have on hand. The texture ends up slightly chewy. If you prefer something less chewy, you can use quick cooking oats instead. However, steel cut oats will not work here.
- Non-Dairy Milk- Coconut milk makes for a super creamy texture but oat milk or almond milk also work great. Having a little extra for serving is always a good idea.
- Honey or Pure Maple Syrup- Either of these make a great natural sweetener. If you find the end result isn’t sweet enough for you, feel free to drizzle some more on top when you’re serving.
- Pastured Eggs or Flax Eggs- I’ve made this vegan and with eggs and both versions are great!
- Vanilla Extract- Because you can’t go wrong with a little vanilla.
- Vegan Butter- I prefer to use vegan butter (specifically Miyokos) because it tastes so darn good. That said, coconut oil is also a good option.
- Diced Peaches- Opting for ripe, sweet peaches makes for the best baked oatmeal. You could also add in fresh blueberries if you’re feeling lucky.
How to Make Peaches n’ Cream Baked Oatmeal
- Whisk together wet ingredients in a large bowl.
- Add the oats, salt and diced peaches.
- Pour into a greased baking dish and bake.
- Serve warm with milk and enjoy!
The best part about baking oatmeal is that you can prepare it the night before and wake up on a lazy weekend morning, throw it in the oven and relax while the tantalizing aroma wafts through your house. Or even better, for a quick breakfast during the week, you can bake it ahead of time and then reheat it in the microwave when you’re ready to roll. Trust me, you’ll never look back at oatmeal packets after you try this!

Lovely recipe, as always, Sarah. I think I’ll make it this weekend. I know I say this every time, but you’re a food photo superstar in my book :)
p.s. i’m going to be so sad when peach season comes to a close.
Thank you Hillary! Food photography honestly gives me anxiety so I appreciate the extra encouragement.
I will also be sad to see peaches leave; they’re so delicious.
Ok, this looks absolutely amazing. I used to love those instant oatmeal packets as well (I was an apple cinnamon or brown sugar maple girl) but now I like to cook my oats from scratch. If it weren’t midnight where I’m at and if I had peaches in the house, I’d be making this either right now or first thing in the morning. And Earth Balance is one of the best things ever created. It’s phenomenal on/in oatmeal!
I’m so happy to “meet” someone else who adores Earth Balance as much as I do! :)
It’s been a while since I’ve made baked oatmeal, but I absolutely adore it. I’m someone who actually really enjoys oatmeal with a dryer, firmer texture, so baking oats is perfect in my books. Oh, and I couldn’t agree more about overnight oats…. totally too cold and gloopy.
I used to love the instant oat packets when I was a kid, and I’d usually opt for wildberry or apply cinnamon. It kind of makes me sad now to see how much sugar is in them. Oh, and the Disney reference was from Aristocats <3
I lied! Lady and the Tramp ;)
Aren’t baked oats the best??? I made baked peach oatmeal last weekend! It was absolutely scrumptious! I wish it were peach season all year round.
I never really ate those packets growing up because my Mom made stovetop oatmeal a few times a week. I definitely used to load it with brown sugar though ;)
Yum, just pinned this! This would be perfect to bake a big batch on the weekend when visitors come!
Baked oatmeal is one of my favorite things for breakfast. It is so warm and comforting!
I want to get back into oatmeal again. I am adoring peaches right now so this is the perfect recipe! I may have to give it a go!
Confession: When I was a kid I used to love those oatmeal packets…sprinkled with brown sugar ;-) Sweet tooth much? My favourite flavour was probably maple and brown sugar, but I really liked the Peaches and Cream one too…and the one with Dino Eggs ;-)
I haven’t made baked oatmeal is ages – I usually just microwave mine. One of these mornings when I have a lot of time I’ll have to make a batch though!
Great minds think alike. We went peach picking a few days ago, so I had all these peaches to use up. I made peaches and cream oatmeal last night as well. :) But mine didn’t look as great as yours :)
Oh my gosh, this looks so delicious! Can we just cut out the middleman and agree you should just come over and make all your wonderful recipes?? Just kidding! :) I seriously need to get in the kitchen with this one!
Haha, yes. I’m on my way! ;)
I normally go the slowcooker route with oatmeal (because I’m too lazy to even put something in the oven, ha) but I love the sound of this! I’ll definitely have to give baked oatmeal a try. Can you taste the egg in it?
I didn’t notice an eggy flavor but you can make it with one egg if you are worried about tasting it. Or just sub chia seeds or flax to thicken it!
I have to admit, I’m not a huge fan of overnight oats, either. I mean, if I know I’ll be super short on time the next day I might pop some in the fridge before I go to bed so that I’ll at least have something, but I definitely prefer hot oats. I’ve never baked oatmeal before, though. It sounds delicious!
Fun fact: before runs (including races!), I can’t eat normal oats. It has to be instant oats…apple cinnamon all the way. ;)
I’m definitely pinning this! I’ve been looking for a good baked oatmeal recipe and this one just looks perfect. Can’t wait to try it!
This is seriously beautiful. I’m not part of the oatmeal cult, but if it’s made with milk, I can eat it if I have to. Although, I’d probably be the person who’d eat all the peach chunks out of this and leave the oatmeal. Either way, this looks amazingly perfect. Teach me your wayyyyys.
lady and the tramp!! the cats! awesome reference! and baked oatmeal sounds delicious! i used to eat the packets too, but now i cant. it TASTES processed. if i eat processed foods, i like not tasting it so obviously, you know what i mean? and im with you on the whole no thank you, overnight oats. blah.
Ohhhh man this looks good! I love baked oatmeal! I haven’t done a whole lot of baked oatmeal with fruit (I usually go for chocolate or peanut butter, or both ;) ), but I did a blueberry coconut one once and it was wonderful. Oh and I loved the apple cinnamon packets… good times, good times. :)
I seriously LOVE baked oatmeal, especially when the weather starts to get chilly in the fall. Can’t wait to try it with peaches!
Lady and the Tramp!! We are Siamese if you please. . . . meow…..we are Siamese if you don’t please. . . merow…. yessssssss.
Sorry, I love my classic Disney ;)
I was just thinking about having some warm oatmeal. It’s been a while since I made some and the idea of VOO right now chills my bones. I haven’t done baked oatmeal before, but I’ll be sure to give this a try with some fresh local peaches :)
I seriously think this may be my favorite recipe yet!!!
I love love love peaches! [ oh yes love} hehe
Thanks Heather! Peaches are pretty amazing! :)
This was so yummy. I think I’m going to try making it with pineapple and blackberries this time.
A “cult following” hahaha that made me laugh! I love oatmeal, too! I have so many peaches to use up right now and I’m gonna try this.
Yum! I actually tried an instant peaches and cream recently at a hotel (crappy) continental breakfast and it was like dessert! Like wayyyyy too sweet. This recipe would be great to make on a sunday and eat for a few days!
You’re so right about oatmeal having a cult-like following, it seems like everyone is in love with it! I’ll get an oatmeal craving once in awhile, but I don’t really see what all the fuss is about. And certainly no overnight oats for me either!
Oh and btw, I nominated you for the Sunshine Award :)
Yummm I love baked oatmeal but haven’t made it in ages! If fall and winter mean baked oatmeal, maybe I can get behind the colder weather after all. Totally agree with you about overnight oats though – slimy and sad. Hot is where it’s at!
Oatmeal and Disney … two classics! As far as peaches, we are on the same wavelength as I had a peach inspired post today as well:)
Wow that looks SUPER good and strangely enough, my sister in law just gave me a GIANT bag of oats she got an an amish market!
I love overnight oats, but I have a feeling that once I make this recipe I will never go back! As usual, your photography is amazing! Keep on keepin on! :)
Omg, I used to eat those oatmeal packets every. single. day before school! And now that I think about it, peaches and cream flavor was my favorite! I’d be willing to bet yours is just a teeeeennnny bit better ;)
This looks so yummy and delicious!! A great winter warmer (since its winter here)!
This looks so delicious and comforting. Can’t wait to try! :)
So just made it with no eggs and with 2% milk let’s see if it comes out the same :-)

If I substitute chia seeds in place of the egg, how much should I use?
One tablespoon should be sufficient!
Wow, I’ve been following your blog for a LONG time my friend! That’s why I feel like I know you even though we only met in person once :) I have been obsessed with peaches this summer. SO GOOD!! I think my mom would love this recipe, so I’ll have to make it for her soon.
It’s crazy how long it’s been, right?! :)
