Baked oatmeal is a breakfast treat that is super easy to make. It’s mixed by hand in one bowl and you can prep the ingredients the night before.

I don’t like my breakfast to taste like dessert, so I use just enough honey for a lightly sweet taste. One ripe peach adds a little more sweetness and some moisture.

Ingredient Notes

  • Rolled Oats– Old fashioned rolled oats give the oatmeal a nice chewy texture. Quick cooking oats can be used, but they will break down into smaller bits and the oatmeal will have a mushier texture.
  • Peach – Fresh or frozen peaches work for this recipe.
  • Milk – You can use any type of milk for this recipe; whole milk, lowfat milk, buttermilk or non-diary milk.
  • Pecans – Are nice with peach, but you can use any nut or leave them out all together.
  • Honey -I add just enough honey for a lightly sweet flavor. If you like your oatmeal sweeter you can add up to a 1/2 cup of white or brown sugar to the recipe.
  • Butter – To make the recipe vegan, you can use non-dairy margarine or oil.

  • 10 oz old-fashioned rolled oats (3 cups)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon table salt
  • ½ teaspoon ginger
  • 12 oz whole milk (1 ½ cups, see note)
  • 4 oz unsalted butter (melted)
  • 6 oz honey (½ cup)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large peach (peeled and diced to ½")
  • 2 oz pecans (½ cup, chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar for topping


  • Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Butter a 9" square pan.
  • In a large bowl, combine 10 oz old-fashioned rolled oats, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, ½ teaspoon table salt, and ½ teaspoon ginger.
  • In a large measuring cup, whisk together 12 oz whole milk, 4 oz unsalted butter (melted), 6 oz honey, 2 large eggs and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
  • Stir the liquid into the oat mixture until combined. Fold in 1 large peach (chopped) and 2 oz pecans (chopped). Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth to an even layer. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons granulated sugar for topping.
  • Bake until the center springs back when lightly pressed or a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 30-35 minutes. Optionally, you can turn on the broiler for a minute or two after the oatmeal is done baking. The broiler will caramelize the sugar for an extra crunchy topping.
  • Cool 10 minutes before slicing.

    Well, I’ve made this 4 times. The first 3 times I used a glass 8×8 pan and it came out a little more moist than I expected. Still tastes fantastic. I loved it so much being a peach and oatmeal lover, I made it for a couple who are going through some medical issues. The wife says she doesn’t like oatmeal, so wasn’t so thrilled to get a dish primarily made with oatmeal. She called me the next day and told me how much she loved it and it is the very first time in her 80+ years she has enjoyed oatmeal.
    I was wondering what difference a 9×9 pan would make, so I ordered one from Amazon and made another batch today. I can now see why you recommend the 9×9. It came out a little thinner and holds together than the ones I made in the 8×8 pans. It cooked up perfectly at 30 minutes and a minute or two under the broiler.
    Thank you for this recipe. I’ve shared it with a couple of people via a link to your website. Hopefully they will discover many of your other creations.

    I didn’t have a 9×9, so I used an 8×8 and it took an extra 20 minutes to bounce back. I alos used frozen peaches instead of fresh. Still tasted great and would definitely make again.

    I made these tonight. I didn’t have a 9×9, so I used an 8×8. I expected to have to cook it longer due to the added thickness, but when I checked at 35 minutes, they bounced back when pressed and a toothpick came out clean.
    They didn’t come out as an actual bar (at least the photo presents as a bar), but had to be scooped out. Not a big deal, but not quite what I was expecting.

    I added 1/4 cup dark brown sugar, and that was my only change. I don’t eat breakfast, so I made it for dessert. The taste is very good. If I made it again, I would probably add a little more salt, a bit more ginger, and I might just substitute dark brown sugar for the honey (mainly due to the cost.) And I might add another peach and a couple tablespoons of flour to help bind it together. But it is a tasty dish.

    1. Hi Derek, this is not meant to be a bar like a granola bar, it’s a more cake-like texture, soft and moist.
