Hello, day 3 of peaches! I hope you’ve been loving the AK Summer Series and all of the amazing ways to use up summer produce. This peach recipe is one of my fav breakfasts to make for the kids (and myself) during busy mornings and I know you’re going to become obsessed.
My mom visited a couple of summers ago and one morning we wanted to make something for our breakfasts and snacks that were portable, delicious, simple and full of summer fruit flavor. Since the combination of peaches and blueberries has always been a favorite of mine, I thought why not pack them into cute little oatmeal cups with the addition of creamy protein-packed almond butter?! These blueberry peach oatmeal cups are truly the best breakfast ever!
This time a couple of years ago I also introduced baby Sidney to almond butter and he couldn’t get enough! He’s still almond butter obsessed and I swirl it into his oatmeal or put it on bananas for a snack and he always gobbles it up. Oatmeal cups like these are perfect for kiddos, too, especially when you’re on the go.
Welcome to the AK Summer Series
For the rest of the summer, we’ll be dedicating each week to select summer produce! Week 3 is HERE and we’re celebrating all things peaches continuing with the best peach blueberry oatmeal cups. Stay tuned on the blog and on Instagram for each week’s produce highlight, fun videos, and more.
Ingredients in peach blueberry oatmeal cups
These easy peach oatmeal cups have super simple ingredients but pack plenty of delicious flavor from juicy peaches and blueberries. They’re dairy free, naturally sweetened with pure maple syrup and easily made gluten free. Here’s everything you need:
- Almond butter: use a natural, creamy almond butter that just has almonds and salt as ingredients. Use the code ‘AMBITIOUS15’ to get 15% off of Wild Friends nut butters!
- Coconut oil: to add a bit of dairy free moisture to these oatmeal cups.
- Eggs: we’re just using 2 eggs to help these oatmeal cups hold together and add a boost of protein.
- Pure maple syrup: you’ll just need a bit of pure maple syrup to naturally sweeten the oatmeal cups.
- Milk: keep these peach blueberry oatmeal cups dairy free using your favorite dairy free milk. I personally like using unsweetened almond milk.
- Vanilla: for a little additional flavor.
- Rolled oats: feel free to use gluten free rolled oats to keep them gluten free.
- Cinnamon: for a wonderful, cozy spice addition.
- Baking powder & salt: to help these oatmeal cups bake up properly.
- Peaches: we’re adding diced peaches inside the oatmeal cups and slices on top for extra peach goodness!
- Blueberries: fill your oatmeal cups with juicy blueberries along with the diced peaches. YUM.
Recommended ingredient swaps
If you’re out of a few ingredients in these peach blueberry oatmeal cups here’s what I can recommend swapping:
- For the almond butter: feel free to also use a natural, drippy peanut butter, cashew butter, or to make it nut free, sunflower seed butter.
- For the coconut oil: you can also sub butter or vegan butter.
- For the maple syrup: honey would also work well!
Can I use steel cut oats?
I would not recommend using steel cut oats in these peach oatmeal cups because the texture will be much different.
Can I make these oatmeal cups vegan?
I haven’t tried using flax eggs in this recipe but let me know if you do! Learn how to make flax eggs with this tutorial.
