One of my favorite things is a recipe that has been shared with me. First, because you know it’s tried and true – otherwise, they wouldn’t share it. Second, whenever I make or bake it, I get to think about that person. This Peach Oatmeal Bread is one of those recipes.
Thanks to my old neighbor Hollie for this one; I miss and think of you often!
Cut this hearty peach oatmeal bread in thick slices and slather with a bit of butter. It is very hearty, not too sweet and just crumbly enough for the butter to play it's part.
- 2 c peeled chopped peaches (drain if using canned)
- 2 3/4 c. whole wheat flour (Or 2 c whole wheat and 3/4 c bread flour
- 1/2 c sugar
- 1/2 c brown sugar
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp slat
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1 c old fashioned rolled oats
- 2 large eggs
- 1 c milk
- 1/4 c vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 350. Grease two loaf pans
Mix dry ingredients well; toss in peaches and coat
Beat together eggs, milk and oil. Add to flour/peach mixture, stirring just until evenly moistened.

You can use olive oil for vegetable oil.
