An easy and healthy peaches and cream oatmeal recipe that is done is 2 minutes flat! You will never guess that each bowl is only 300 calories because it tastes completely indulgent. My homemade peach oatmeal uses whole rolled oats because instant and quick oats become pure mush when you cook them….

The first version of this recipe came about many years ago when I needed a quick way to cook whole rolled oats in the microwave so I could quickly get six kids out the door before school. The way of cooking oats has been a life saver ever since! And it is easy enough that my kids can make it all on their own.

When I was writing my new 100 recipe cookbook earlier this year, I knew this way of cooking oats in the microwave was going to help make the best homemade peach oatmeal ever, and done in just a couple minutes. I like to refer to this as my “peach cobbler” oatmeal because it really does taste more like a dessert than a healthy breakfast under 300 calories.

We make this a few times a week before work and love it. Had no idea you could do this in the microwave.
