Easy Summer Fruit Oatmeal Recipe Is Loaded With Peaches & Berries

Oatmeal may be one of the world's most underrated foods. While oatmeal may have a reputation for being boring, that's only because many people don't take the time to make interesting oatmeal recipes. At 30Seconds, we believe in the power of oatmeal, and we have so many amazing oatmeal recipes!

I love experimenting with oatmeal recipes not only because they're so delicious, but also because they pack a nutritional punch that cannot be denied. According to Healthline, "oats are among the healthiest grains on earth." They’re a gluten-free whole grain and an important source of vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants.

This easy and delicious recipe for summer fruit oatmeal takes advantage of all the juicy ripe peaches and berries that are in season right now, making the oatmeal naturally sweet. This oatmeal recipe is so tasty, you won't even realize how nutritious it is. So load up on those summer fruits and make this wholesome recipe for your next breakfast or brunch!

Recipe Notes

  • I added walnuts to my oatmeal to increase fiber and flavor, but nuts are optional.
  • I topped my oatmeal with fresh blueberries, but additional berries are optional.
  • For creaminess, I added 1/4 cup almond milk to my oatmeal, but that is optional.

Here's how to make it:

  1. Add the water and salt to a large saucepan. Bring to a boil. Add in the oats, reduce heat to low and stir until combined. Stir in the brown sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. Cook for a few minutes, stirring continuously, until oatmeal is done (according to package directions).
  2. Add in the peaches and strawberries, and walnuts, if using. Stir until all ingredients are blended and fruit is warm and soft.
  3. Serve immediately. Garnish with berries of choice, if desired. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to four days. If reheating, add 1/4 cup milk to each serving and warm in microwave.
