What’s better than your favorite childhood cereal? A grown-up granola that tastes like your favorite dessert.
This Peach Cobbler Granola is a deliciously dreamy way to start your morning. Buying premade isn’t always budget friendly, so I love coming up with new ways to reinvent it at home. This recipe was a HUGE hit. We keep a large glass jar of fresh granola on the kitchen counter for quick breakfasts all week long, and this recipe is a keeper.
Breakfast should be enjoyed and it’s even better when made simple with meal prep. Whip up a big batch of this sweet, buttery cereal for a quick bowl with milk or try it on top of your favorite yogurt. Let’s think outside the box and make some homemade granola!

What You’ll Need:
Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats- You will need 6 cups, use gluten-free if needed. Avoid quick or instant oats.
Butter- You need quite a bit of butter, but remember… this makes quite a large batch. If you use salted butter, it will make this more a “salty & sweet” cereal, which also tastes great. Both salted or unsalted will work.
Peach Preserves- This makes up most of the sweetness in granola and adds an extra touch of peach flavor.
Brown Sugar- Just a little bit for the “sauce”. You can skip it if you want to reduce the sugar. I suggest first making the sauce without it and taste before you take it off of the stove. That way if you change your mind and want to add it, all you have to do is pour it in and heat it up on medium until it melts.
Salt- (optional, if using unsalted butter) Just a pinch of table salt in the “sauce” and/or crumb topping enhances and balances the flavors.
All-Purpose Flour- This is for the crumb mixture that makes this granola unique.
White Sugar– For the crumb topping
Dried Peaches- You can use 6-8 ounces. I like to get a 1-lb bag and save half for another batch. Same can be done with a 12 ounce bag.
Chopped Unsalted Nuts- (optional) Any kind that you like. Walnuts and pecans are fantastic. If you don’t like nuts, you could swap them for unsweetened coconut, just make sure it is added with the peaches so it doesn’t burn.
Large Sheet Pan
Parchment Paper– Typically I will opt for my silicone mats when baking, but in this case I prefer using parchment paper for easier clean up. Also, when I am scooping this into my jar I can simply pick up the paper and pour in any remaining bits of granola on the pan. Toss the paper into the trash and we are done.
Serving Suggestions & Ideas
Meal Prep- Make this and place in an air-tight container on the counter for up to 7 days, or in the fridge for up to a few weeks.
Yogurt Bowls or Parfaits
Brunch/House Guests- This looks impressive in a simple glass jar for a self-serve breakfast or brunch when you have guests. Make it extra “fancy” and serve alongside some of my easy Sweet Cream Biscuits. You can find my recipe here.

The BEST Peach Cobbler Granola
- 1 Large Sheet Pan
- Parchment Paper
- 6 cups old-fashioned oats
- 6-8 ounces dried peaches, chopped
- 2/3 cup unsalted walnuts or pecans, chopped (see notes below)
- 1/3 cup butter, melted & cooled
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 2/3 cup white sugar
- 3/4 cup butter
- 1/2 cup peach preserves
- 1/4 cup brown sugar (see notes below)
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Mix all of the crumb ingredients in a small mixing bowl and set aside.
- Pre-heat the oven to 300 F, measure the oats & nuts into a large mixing bowl, and prepare the baking sheet with parchment paper. Set them aside.
- Add all of the sauce ingredients to a medium sauce pan and turn the heat to medium low. Stir often as it melts together to prevent burning, about 5 minutes.
- Pour the sauce over the oats & nuts and mix well. Pour the oats into the baking sheet and spread out evenly. With your hands, add the crumb topping on top of the oats. Bake on the middle rack for 15 minutes.
- While the granola is baking, chop the peaches into bite sized peaches. After the 15 minutes is over, remove the baking sheet and sprinkle the peaches on top of everything else.
- Carefully "turn" with a spoon to gently "mix" (without breaking the crumb) the ingredients together. Bake an additional 5-10 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and make sure it cools completely before serving or storing away. Enjoy!
