As I head further and further into the third trimester and become increasingly more exhausted by the minute, I have discovered a renewed love of make-ahead meals. Let me tell you, folks, there are few greater feelings than waking up to a hungry toddler and husband on the weekends and remembering that a healthy and delicious breakfast is already prepared.

This dish was created after a recent peach-picking expedition. In fact, the first recipe I created was this moist and flavorful Gluten Free Oatmeal Peach Bread. The great thing about this bread is that you can swap out all-purpose flour or whole wheat pastry flour if you don’t need it to be gluten free.

If you’re serving a crowd, hosting a brunch or having friends over for breakfast, this recipe takes care of any potential gluten intolerances without scarifying any flavor. Similar to my Gluten Free Chewy Brownies with Walnuts and Coconut Oil, I can guarantee no one will notice or miss the gluten.

Your fork is waiting.

    Hi Liz,
    I made this for a special brunch for my family today, as one of my sister’s is heading off to university for the first time!

    My peaches weren’t ripe, so I substituted strawberries in your peach loaf recipe (and used 1/2 whole wheat flour + 1/2 reg), and then topped the French toast bake with mixed frozen berries… and it was delicious!

    My family devoured the entire dish! When my peaches ripen I’m tempted to make the recipe again… and then with apples in the fall.

    Thank you for the recipe,

    Have you tried this with apples? Plus, we are egg white free (due to egg white allergies), so I am contemplating using agar as an egg white substitute…anybody ever used this as a replacement?

      I haven’t tried with apples but I bet that would be delicious!! I’m not familiar with working with agar but hopefully someone can be a resource for you!!

    Oh my goodness…I got as far as making the bread, and it was so delish that I couldn’t bring myself to turn it into something else! Damn, That means I’m going to have to make it again ;)
