Peach season is at its peak. Apparently this year the peaches are high quality and very large. And I’m pretty sure I purchased the world’s largest peach this weekend. I wanted to take picture to show you, but it somehow disappeared before I was able to get a picture of it. No matter how many I buy, they never last very long in my house. We eat peaches for breakfast, lunch dinner and dessert. Today, I’m sharing Peach Cobbler Oatmeal – a good choice for breakfast inspired by a classic dessert!

I was never a fan of the premade boxed and packaged oatmeal. Why eat the pre-packaged stuff when you can have fresh peaches in homemade oatmeal? This oatmeal is ready in less than 10 minutes so it can even be made on busy mornings. And since I love everything a little crunchy, I topped it off with chopped pecans.

How to make peach oatmeal

It’s very easy to make peach oatmeal. Combine water, salt, oats, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook for four minutes or until the oatmeal thickens. Add fresh chopped peaches and brown sugar and cook for an additional minute. Garnish with pecans and serve immediately.

Tips for making oatmeal

  • Use any variety of milk to make it creamier. Or omit milk all together and make a simple oatmeal.
  • Switch our peaches for any of your favorite fruit. Oatmeal tastes great with berries, apples or bananas too.
  • Oatmeal reheats well. Make a large batch at the beginning of the week and reheat throughout the week. Add additional milk just prior to serving.
  • Use fresh fruit for the best texture and flavor. We don’t recommend using frozen fruit in oatmeal.
  • Swap out traditional oats for steel cut or Irish oats. Adjust your cook time depending on the type of oats used. You can even use quinoa instead of oatmeal.

I like my oatmeal thick and barely sweet. Feel free to add milk or additional water for a creamy texture. Add more sugar for sweetness, as desired. Enjoy the taste of fresh peaches and oatmeal for breakfast!

If you love oatmeal, try it baked too!
