Last week we had a little vote on My Plant-Based Family’s Facebook page. This recipe was the runner-up but I know many of you have been patiently waiting for it.

On a side note, my husband and I just celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary. Happy Anniversary!

Peachy Keen Oatmeal

Are you in a breakfast rut? Allow me to help you out with this delicious breakfast treat.

I was able to get a few dozen white peaches from the discounted produce section and I’ve been enjoying them ever since. You could use yellow peaches instead of white if you’d like.

Peachy Keen Oatmeal


  • Gluten-free or regular rolled oats (read the package to make the appropriate amount for your family)
  • 1 to 2 peaches per person ( just made a large batch of about 10)
  • maple syrup (optional)
  • cinnamon (optional)
  • walnuts or chia seeds (optional)


  1. Peel and slice peaches; cook them on the stove (using medium heat) in a small sauce pan with peaches barely covered in water.
  2. Once peaches are soft whiz half of them in a blender or food processor. Set the rest of the cooked, sliced peaches aside.
  3. Cook oats according to package directions, you can use the leftover peach “water” if you’d like.
  4. After oatmeal is made spoon into bowls, adding puréed peaches and some peach chunks.
  5. Top with optional maple syrup, cinnamon, or walnuts.


The peaches can turn plain oatmeal into an incredible treat. I’ve also served peaches prepared this way on top of pancakes; it reminded me of homemade peach cobbler. I plan to try it with quinoa next.

Have you tried oatmeal with peaches? Once peach season arrives I plan to have peaches for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
