Baked Oatmeal is one of my favorite ways to meal prep an easy breakfast for the week, so you HAVE to try these Peach Cobbler Blended Baked Oats! For this recipe, we actually blend the oats to create a cheap & quick oat flour, and that gives our final product an almost cake-like texture.
I think blended baked oats are my new form of baked oatmeal. The final texture is so nice; it’s less like oatmeal and more like a soft granola bar or cake! Today I wanted to show y’all a blended version that was inspired by a classic Southern dessert – peach cobbler. It’s on another level!
- Canned Peaches – Canned peaches save some prep time as opposed to using fresh (although you can cut up fresh fruit if you really want to.) Be sure to buy the peaches that are canned in 100% fruit juice, not syrup!
- Brown Sugar – Similar to if we were making Southern peach cobbler, we’re going to carmelize our peaches in a sweetened syrup. Brown sugar will be our base for this.
- Cinnamon – You can’t really have peach cobbler or oatmeal without cinnamon, in my opinion! I also added a touch of nutmeg for an even warmer flavor.
- Oats – I used the Quick 1-Minute variety of oats. The most important thing is to ensure you blend or chop your oats as finely as possible to make oat flour! PS: You can buy oat flour at the store, but making it by hand is so much cheaper and only takes an extra few seconds.
How to Make Blended Oats
The difference between this recipe of baked oats vs. my previous ones is that I blended the oats this time to make oat flour. For people who have texture issues, this could really help them eat more fiber-filled oats!
To make Peach Cobbler Blended Baked Oats, we’re going to start by caramelizing canned peaches in a pot. Simply cook peaches, melted butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon over medium heat until they form a beautiful brown syrup.
While the peaches are cooking, blend up your oats and then add them to a bowl with a couple more dry ingredients, oat/almond milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and an egg. You should get a batter with a thin consistency.
Finally, fold in the caramelized peaches and all of their syrupy goodness into the oatmeal batter. Add to a prepared baking pan and bake for about 22 minutes (checking to make sure a knife comes out of the center clean.) It’s really that easy!
I like to make this as a meal prep treat for breakfast, but you really can eat it for dessert as well. Serve with a bit of ice cream, whipped cream, or extra maple syrup on top, and enjoy!
