Ripe peaches and hearty oatmeal add flavor and texture to this moist and delicious gluten free bread.
Peach season is a beautiful thing, isn’t it? One of my favorite summertime traditions is eating a freshly picked peach over the sink and savoring every juicy, messy bite. The floral aromas and honey-scented notes of a perfectly ripe peach are utterly intoxicating and well worth the wait all year long.
Seasonal eating is a lesson I learned early on from my mother who would bring me along on trips to the farmers market or local farm stands while growing up. Despite eating the rainbow in fruits and vegetables throughout my childhood, I struggled with childhood obesity up until my early 20’s when I decided to make permanent healthy lifestyle changes and ultimately achieved long term weight loss success.
Whether you’re gluten-free or not, the recipe is 95% the same: simply swap out your favorite flour (I love whole wheat pastry flour) for the gluten-free all-purpose baking mix. If you’re baking for a classroom or hosting a party, this is a great bread to make that everyone can enjoy regardless of gluten allergies.
No peaches on hand? No problem. Replace with diced nectarines, blueberries, bananas or raspberries. By adding fresh fruit and oatmeal to the mix, you add back nutrients and fiber that are often missing from gluten free mixes. Ginger and peaches are one of my favorite flavor combinations but you can use cinnamon if you don’t have ginger on hand.

I have recently tried other G-F peach loafs that I followed to the T and were totally disappointing. Thank you for such a delicious loaf with a recipe so easy to follow.

Thank you so much Kelli! I’m glad you are finding fun in baking everyday. Sorry it deleted your comment, but I still received the sentiment, so that’s all that matters!
I made this for my husband’s birthday breakfast and it was delightful! I made a few substitutes but it worked perfectly and timing was exact. I used whole wheat flour and avocado oil. And I used jarred peaches from a local orchard. I also put a sprinkling of oats and sugars on top for a bit of a sweet crust. Wonderful!
I’m so glad he loved it!
I have made this bread at least four times, I make a dozen muffins. Absolutely delishious ❤️❤️❤️❤️
