Who says you can't enjoy oatmeal during the summertime? This oatmeal topped with brown-sugar glazed peaches makes the most delicious and comforting breakfast!


  • 1 cup (89g) old-fashioned oats 
  • 2 cups (454g) milk of choice, or water 
  • 2 tablespoons (28g) unsalted butter 
  • 1/4 cup (28g) slivered almonds 
  • 1/4 cup (53g) light brown sugar 
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup (114g) yellow peaches, thinly sliced 


  1. In a medium saucepan on the stove, bring milk or water to a boil over medium heat. Once boiling, reduce the heat down to medium-low and add in the old-fashioned oats. Stirring occasionally, cook until the oats have soaked up most of the liquid, about 10-15 minutes.
  2. In a frying pan over medium heat, melt the butter. Once melted, add in the slivered almonds and stir until the almonds are lightly toasted, about 2 minutes.
  3. Next, add in the light brown sugar, cinnamon, and yellow peach slices. Continue stirring the mixture to evenly coat the peaches with the brown sugar mixture. Cook the mixture for 3-5 minutes, or until the peaches have softened and the mixture has started to bubble slightly.
  4. Once you reach your desired oatmeal consistency, transfer the oatmeal to a bowl. Spoon the brown sugar-glazed peach mixture on top and serve warm. 


  • Liquid: As with any oatmeal, feel free to use whatever liquid you desire. I always like to make oatmeal with whole milk to get that delicious, creamy flavor. For a lighter version, you could try using ½ milk and ½ water.
  • Almonds: If you have a nut allergy, or prefer not to include the almonds, you can easily remove these from the recipe. Simply omit them and continue on with the rest of the recipe as usual.
