This overnight oatmeal recipe is super thick, creamy, and full of fresh peach flavor. You just need 10 minutes to make this delicious breakfast!
I’m soaking up every last bit of summer while I can, including my favorite summer produce. Fresh peaches are so amazing this time of year! These overnight oats are basically peach pie in a jar.
The best part of this overnight oatmeal recipe is you can have it all year round! The peach puree is made from frozen peaches, and you could easily sub the fresh peach for defrosted frozen ones. Frozen produce is actually super nutrient-rich! Fruits and vegetables are frozen at peak ripeness, and the freezing process preserves those vitamins and minerals.
Steps to make peaches and cream overnight oatmeal
First, you’ll combine the dry ingredients + fresh peach in a glass container or Tupperware.
Next, add wet ingredients and stir well to combine. Cover, and place this in the fridge overnight.
While the overnight oatmeal sets in the fridge, make some peach puree in your blender. You can store this in a separate container in the fridge.
In the morning, portion out the overnight oats into 3 bowls or containers. Top with peach puree + chopped fresh peach and shredded coconut, if desired.
Why you should start making overnight oatmeal
Overnight oats have become one of my absolute favorite breakfasts! As a Registered Dietitian, they check off all the boxes when it comes to healthy eating.
Nutritious and filling. Overnight oats are packed with nutrients, including fiber. The fiber from the oatmeal + chia seeds is incredibly filling, because fiber swells in our stomach and slows down digestion. Each serving of this recipe has over 6 grams of fiber, which is 25% of the daily recommendation for women!
Easy and foolproof to make. Overnight oats hardly need a recipe, because they are so easy to prepare. Just mix oats, chia seeds, your favorite milk, and other sweeteners/fruits/flavorings, and pop it in the fridge! Once you have the proper dry to wet ingredient ratio down, the possibilities are endless.
Totally customizable. Overnight oatmeal is incredibly easy to customize based on what flavors you love. My personal favorite flavors include cinnamon, peanut butter, chocolate, or fresh berries. Make a simple base, and add different flavorings for each day of the week to keep it interesting!
Perfect for busy schedules. I am a big supporter of eating a healthy breakfast to start your day. If you’re super busy, you might not have time to sit down for a meal before work. Overnight oats are perfect to grab and go in the morning, so you can eat it on the train or at your desk!
