Peach Oat Quick Bread

Peach oat quick bread with streusel topping sliced next to fresh peaches

Today I am sharing this peach oat quick bread. It is the sort of bread that you might eat for breakfast, or with a morning cup of coffee, or an afternoon break with some tea. Anytime, really.

My favorite part is the streusel topping. I think I’ll find more reasons to bake muffins and breads with this streusel as it added a nice texture and finish to this bread. Try this recipe with plums, apricots, even berries.

Peach-Oat Quick Bread

Baking with fresh peaches is a perfect recipe for summertime bread!

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 1 hour


Bread Ingredients:

  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup chopped, peaches (about 2 large peaches)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil

Streusel Ingredients:

  • 4 Tablespoon butter, cut into small cubes
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8 x 4 loaf pan with baking spray. Cut a rectangle of parchment and fit it into the pan such that the sides fold outside the pan. Use this to lift the bread out of the pan later on with ease.
  2. Combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the oats and peaches, stir gently.
  3. Whisk the egg then add it to the buttermilk and the oil. Combine with the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Pour into the pan.
  4. Mix the streusel ingredients together; use your fingers to bring pieces of the streusel together into small bits (sizes of peas or slightly bigger). Pour into the batter and press it in slightly.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes then cool on a wire rack.

This is such a wonderful loaf of bread, Holly. I too love streusel. It just makes a quick bread or a muffin so much better! Speaking of muffins, I need to make some more soon. :)

That streusel looks amazing and the peaches must keep the bread really moist. Perfect for breakfast!
