Peach Oatmeal Bread

    Ripe peaches and hearty oatmeal add flavor and texture to this moist and delicious gluten free bread.

    Gluten Free Oatmeal Peach Bread - The Lemon Bowl

    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.

    1. I just found this recipe. Living at 5400 feet, I had to make adjustments for high altitude baking which included adding an additional Tbs of GF flour; using 1/2 cup of oil and 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce, instead of 1/3 cup of oil, and adding 1 Tbs of water.

      I also peeled the fresh peaches and used only 1/2 cup of low glycemic coconut sugar and, baked it for 50 minutes at 360 F.

      After leaving it in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring it to a cooling rack, we impatiently waited 2 agonizing hours before slicing into it. It is delicious. I will make another loaf this week as it is peach season here in Colorado.

    2. I know this is an older recipe that does not have current comments, but thought I’d try. I would love to make this! Looks amazing! I am trying to keep calories down where I can (which makes bread difficult), and wondered If I could sub the oil and sugar out? Specifically, some Xylitol or Splenda or Stevia for the sugar – in a baking blend. And, maybe applesauce, or even mashed banana for the oil?? Thanks!

    3. I’m sorry to leave a negative review. I’ve was diagnosed with celiac a number of years ago and am quite familiar with gluten free baking. I found this bread was not moist enough, and the flavour was not as good as I had hoped. In fact I ended up throwing it out as the bread was so bad. I wish someone had baked it left a review before me, I would have altered many things. Sorry.

      1. Hi Wendy – First of all, I’m so sorry this didn’t turn out for you! I appreciate you letting me know so I can be sure others don’t make the same mistake. Second, can you confirm that you followed the recipe exactly as stated and use the Bob’s Red Mill gluten free flour substitute? A lot of folks make slight alterations to my recipes (well-meaning!) but that can change the entire recipe. Let me know so I can help you make this a success next time!

    4. Whoa! Made this today. It was so incredibly good. Hearty, homey, not too sweet. A great showcase for peaches. I used coconut sugar and it added a nice subtle flavor note. Thanks very much.

    5. Sorry, forgot to mention that I am in Durban, South Africa (may make a difference to products you suggest as they might not be available here). :)

    6. I’m really excited to try this recipe as my husband has many food allergies of which being wheat and gluten intolerant is among them (he’s also lactose intolerant, allergic to onions, garlic, leeks, seafood, insulin-resistant, and the list goes on…). Finding pre-made food in stores is out of the question so I make everything fresh for him. Unfortunately, he cannot eat oats either (or barley, rye etc). Could you give me a suggestion of what I might be able to substitute the oats and yogurt with?

      1. I would just skip the oats and perhaps try replacing the yogurt with apple sauce?? Thank you for saying hi all the way from South Africa!

    7. This is definitely a recipe I can get behind, particularly with the additional GF foods I’m making for my sister. Healthy changes for this fall that have already started? Tons of kale!

    8. These peaches look delicious! I’d like to try to eat more fruit and pack healthy lunches during the week to save money and eat healthier! The cookware is a great giveaway to get started with healthier cooking!

    9. I always pack my daughter a healthy, homemade lunch, but this year she wants more salads instead of sandwiches. Today, I gave her a mixed leaf lettuce salad topped with chopped roasted chicken and an olive oil, red vinegar dressing. Her lunches are the envy of her friends, haha! Your peach bread looks awesome, btw!

    10. I love baking cakes with yogurt! I sub it for sour cream as much as I can, for just about everything, too. Healthy change for this year: Making homemade portable snacks, especially granola bars or softer items in ‘brownie bar’ form. The ones in the store may as well be cookies! Hoping to cut costs and calories by packing in items with higher fiber & nutrient content for feeling full vs. ‘energy buzz & crash’. I think oats, oat bran, coconut flakes, pumpkin seeds, dates and other higher fiber items will be prominent in my future experiments.

    11. Liz, I think the Rafflecopter widget isn’t showing up when people view this via Internet Explorer. That may be why some people aren’t understanding how to enter.

      1. We actually tested it on all browsers in the beginning and it was working but I think it may come and go… shoot!! Well over 6,000 people found a way to enter and it closes in 2 hours so I won’t worry too much at this point. Thank you for telling me regardless!! xoxo
