Coconut Peach Baked Oatmeal

by Heidi @ Food Doodles on September 18, 2012

Ahh, peaches.  The season for peaches is way too short.  The amount of peach recipes on the blog certainly does NOT reflect how much I love peaches.  It simply reflects the very short season that we have here.  In which we pretty much stuff our faces with peaches for a week straight and then it’s over.  So sad.  I do have frozen peaches though, so maybe I’ll have some out of season recipes to come 🙂

I have to say I’m eager to jump into fall baking.  I’m planning a pumpkin week probably in a couple weeks because there are so many recipes to share.  I hope I can narrow it down to just five.  I love pumpkin!  And then later in the fall I’m hoping to do a cookie week.  There are seriously not enough cookie recipes on FD and I’m aiming to change that soon 🙂

So you’ll notice a spoonful of peanut butter on top of my oatmeal.  You might think there are enough flavors in the oatmeal, I shouldn’t need to top it with peanut butter…. But I pretty much top everything with peanut butter.  A spoonful of almond butter on top would be delicious too, to add some healthy fats to your breakfast 🙂


For another peach treat, try this gluten-free peach cobbler!

  1. Lightly grease an 8x8 baking dish and set aside. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a bowl, stir together the oats, milk, eggs, vanilla, salt, and sugar. Add 2 of the three chopped peaches and stir to combine. Add the mixture to the prepared baking dish. Top with remaining chopped or sliced peaches. Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes until the center is set and the edges are brown. Remove from the oven and cool at least 10 minutes before serving. Serve with a little extra milk over top and a drizzle of maple syrup if you like. Store any leftovers in the fridge and reheat as needed.
Recipe Notes

I used unsweetened coconut milk from a carton but feel free to use any kind you like including any dairy milk. If you use a sweetened variety of non-dairy milk you may not need the extra sweetener. Feel free to sub your favorite seasonal fruit in oatmeal. I love a spoonful of peanut butter or almond butter on top!

The peach season is over here, it seems like it’s getting shorter and shorter each year.
I love adding peanut to my oatmeal and I know adding some peaches would amke it even more delicious!

Peanut butter does sound kind of odd with peaches but I do love the idea of some maple cinnamon almond butter on top. 🙂 Is peach season really so short? And I thought our 3-4 weeks was bad.

Yay pumpkin week! And cookie week! Those are good ideas. Ideas that I might steal… 🙂

I LOVE peaches, I cut one up everymorning to have with my yogurt – I am going to be sad when the season ends too 🙁

I love any type of oatmeal and this one with coconut milk sounds really good. I think I am going to make this one and add some coconut milk with it as well. I just love coconut!!

I really need to try making baked oatmeal because this looks delicious! Although I don’t know about the peanut butter. 😉

The peanut butter on top totally wins me over! I bet it would be really yummy with apples too!
