Peach Cobbler Overnight Oatmeal
Gluten Free Living – 2021
Oh my, friends. Peach Cobbler Overnight Oatmeal is one recipe you don’t want to be without! This delightful oatmeal recipe cooks in the slow cooker overnight making it one of the easiest ways to do breakfast ever. Steel-cut oats cook down perfectly when slow cooked in oat milk. I added vanilla, cinnamon, brown sugar, nutmeg and of course, peaches!
Let me recommend a couple of things to you when you make this recipe. First of all, it takes only about 5 hours on low in the crockpot to be done. Use a programmable timer so that the oatmeal is ready when you wake up. I did not peel the peaches (which I liked and provides more fiber), but the peaches really need to be diced into smaller pieces so you don’t have to cut them with a knife when eating them. 🙁 I sliced the peaches so they would show better for pictures, but dicing is preferred. Also I used about 6 cups of peaches because I was trying to use up a bunch of them. That’s overkill. Four cups of diced peaches is PLENTY. Lastly, you can use canned or frozen peaches for this recipe if you dice up the peaches (like I stated above). That makes this a pretty fabulous recipe to make any time of the year. 🙂
My husband needs to lower his cholesterol substantially so we have been cutting out lots of high cholesterol foods (plus sugar which increases cholesterol). My daughter-in-law kept telling me that her dad lost about 30 to 40 points within a month of eating steel-cut oats every morning for breakfast. She gave me plenty of ideas on how she cooks it. One of the main points was to use oat milk instead of regular milk or even almond milk. It’s richer and will help even more in lowering cholesterol.
I made this particular batch of oatmeal with brown sugar just to see the difference in taste, but it really doesn’t need it. The peaches are enough to give this oatmeal enough sweetness in my opinion. If you need a sugar-free recipe, simply omit the brown sugar and follow the directions like stated. Or you can make it without the sugar and add a little brown sugar or maple syrup on top afterwards if you feel you need it.
This is a delicious oatmeal recipe to make, adding just a touch of Peach Cobbler flavor to make it sensational! Tossing all the ingredients into the crockpot makes it even easier. Spruce up your company or holiday breakfasts by making up a batch of this favorite oatmeal….or indulge and make it just for your family instead. 🙂
Peach Cobbler Overnight Oatmeal is sensational. Lots of juicy peaches fill each bite.
I left the skins on the peaches for more fiber and health. I do recommend dicing the peaches into much smaller pieces though, for easier eating.
This recipe makes a large batch – about 12 servings. So it’s great to cut down and place in small bowls for breakfast for the week. You can also freeze the oatmeal (after it’s cooked) and serve it later.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients, plus water.
Pour a bag of steel-cut oats into a mixing bowl.
Add brown sugar (if using), cinnamon, nutmeg, sea salt and vanilla.
Add Oat Milk. I purchase it at Walmart, but you have to get it first thing in the morning because our stores in the Dallas Metroplex sell out of it quickly.
Wash peaches well. Slice peaches in halves. Remove stone. Slice down and then dice peaches into small dice.
Add peaches to mixing bowl.
Stir to combine. Spray crockpot with cooking spray and add peach oatmeal mixture.
Cook on low heat in crock pot for 5 hours. (This is easier when you set the programmable timer).
Ladle oatmeal into bowls to serve. If desired, sprinkle with additional cinnamon.
The peach slices did cook up fine cut in slices, but dicing the peaches makes it easier to eat this when serving.
Peach Cobbler Overnight Oatmeal is perfect for company or holiday breakfasts – this can be made overnight giving you time to cook other things in the morning, if necessary.
