Peaches and Cream Baked Oatmeal

Peaches and Cream Baked Oatmeal.  It just has a nice ring to it, right?

Warm, sweet, baked oatmeal…what is there not to love?

I could not keep my kids hands off of this oatmeal. They love all kinds of oatmeal, from overnight oats, to slow cooker oats, but I think baked oatmeal is now their front runner.  

The nice thing about this recipe is that you can make it and save the leftovers for breakfast or snack-time throughout the week.

The oatmeal holds up well in an airtight container, so you just have to heat it up and wallah! You have an easy breakfast, that is also healthy!

I am excited to share this Peaches and Cream Baked Oatmeal from a fellow food blogger, Dr. Sonali Ruder of the food blog The Food Physician’s, new cookbook called Natural Baby Food.  

As many of you know I have two young children, ages 2 1/2 and 5. Since they were born nutrition and what goes into their body has been important to me.

When they first started eating solid food, I was pureeing up different foods and creating fun recipes for them to try.

Peaches and Cream Baked Oatmeal is a healthy start to the day. This makes a great snack too!

While I enjoyed watching them experience foods for the first time, I have to admit that with my first son, it was a bit overwhelming and intimidating.

I knew a good amount about healthy eating from my Mom, who is a dietician, but still felt nervous that I was going to mess it all up.

I didn’t want to do something wrong and create a picky eater. Or give them the wrong food that might cause an allergy. 

From talking to readers and my friends I know I am no alone on this one!

I had a couple of cookbooks that helped guide me when it came to feeding my kids solids, but I wish I had Natural Baby Food back then.

This cookbook is packed full of delicious recipes, and a great book to refer to when you have a question about a certain stage of intro ducting foods.

It is the perfect resource for both experienced parents like me, or new parents. It has over 150 nutritions and delicious recipes that even the pickiest of eaters will love.  

An added bonus, the last section includes recipe that the whole family can enjoy together!

When it comes to planning a healthy diet for your child, Natural Baby Food helps to remove the guesswork and fears a lot of parents have.

The first part of the book covers all of the pertinent medical and nutrition information about starting your baby on solids and the second part has over 150 recipes for things like Banana Date Oat Muffins, Cheesy Cauliflower Rice, Turkey and Hummus Pinwheels and more.  

The recipes are broken down by stage and the last chapter has toddler recipes that the whole family can enjoy together.

I have always felt that food is important, for not only the health of my children, but to help them develop healthy eating habits and an adventurous attitude towards food.

Food is such a huge part of my life and I have always hoped that my children would develop the same love I have.

Peaches and Cream Baked Oatmeal is a healthy start to the day. This makes a great snack too!

Like I mentioned, Peaches and Cream Baked Oatmeal was a huge hit in my house with not only my kids, but my husband and I.

I plan to make other versions of this oatmeal using a variety of fruits, like bananas and mixed berries.

This will definitely go into my regular recipe rotation.

One tip I is to make this oatmeal the night before and let it cool on the counter.

Once it is cooled, cover the oatmeal and put it in the fridge. Then in the morning you can either portion out the oatmeal and heat it in the microwave or quickly warm it back up in the oven.

Breakfast has never been so easy…and healthy!

Peaches and Cream Baked Oatmeal is a healthy start to the day. This makes a great snack too!

Peaches and Cream Baked Oatmeal

Yield: 8
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour

Peaches and Cream Baked Oatmeal mixes oats and sweet peaches that are baked together in this hearty and comforting breakfast dish. The dish is so tasty, you might think it is dessert! You can substitute other fruits for the peaches--like bananas or berries. Serve it alone, or top it with milk or Greek yogurt. A family favorite and kid-friendly.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 Tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons coconut sugar or brown sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon plus extra for garnish
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons melted coconut oil or unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 12 ounces {about 2 cups} diced peaches, plus a few slices of peaches for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8x8- inch baking dish with cooking spray. Mix the oats, 2 Tablespoons sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt together in a medium bowl. Whisk the milk, egg, maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla together in another bowl.
  2. Scatter the diced peaches in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Pour the oat mixture evenly on top. Pour the milk mixture on top and press to submerge all of the dry ingredients in the liquid. Arrange the peach slices on top and sprinkle with the remaining 2 teaspoons sugar and a pinch of cinnamon.
  3. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until set. Let rest for 10 minutes before serving. Serve the oatmeal alone or top it with milk, Greek Yogurt or maple syrup.

Notes

You can use a variety of fruit: berries, bananas or mango would be great!

This is very yummy! A great way to make a satisfying breakfast for a large family gathering.

For an even healthier take, you could use steel-cut oats or oat groats instead of rolled oats.

They have more fiber - which is good in itself. Because they have more fiber, they also have a lower glycemic index; they don't cause your blood sugar to spike and then drop as fast as rolled oats would. The slower rise and drop is better for weight management, and is even more important for people who are diabetic or hypoglycemic.

Both steel-cut oats and oat groats have a chewier texture than rolled oats. This may also promote weight management, since people would tend to eat more slowly, and therefore feel more full without needing larger helpings.

Does it freeze well? I'm trying to prep easy grab and go breakfasts for my bean for daycare. She devoured a whole portion today for breakfast (1year old)

I would think so! You could just make sure it cools and then portion it out and out it in an airtight container. I would just thaw overnight maybe and then heat.
