Recipe Highlights

  • A recipe you can make and eat daily, with endless variations. Mix it up with different fruits, spices and sweeteners.

Ingredients needed

  • Oats – You will want to use rolled oats also known as old-fashioned oats. You will find that quick oats are not the best as it is too soft of a texture for overnight prep.
  • Chia Seeds – The chia seeds are going to help add fiber and leave you feeling full longer. 
  • Plant-Based Milk – Reach for any milk you would like. We typically use almond milk or soy milk. But feel free to use coconut milk, oat milk, or any other non-dairy milk. 
  • Maple Syrup – The sweetener of this easy recipe. It will sweeten the peaches and cream overnight oats in a light way. 
  • Cinnamon – A little sprinkle of cinnamon helps to add warm spices to the oats. 
  • Peaches – Fresh summer peaches are wonderful for slicing and topping your cream oatmeal. If you don’t have fresh use frozen peaches that are thawed or canned peaches. 

How to make overnight oats with peaches and chia seeds

In a small bowl, add all your ingredients except the peaches. Mix well. 

Then, place the oat mixture in a sealed container. Refrigerate overnight. 

In the morning, top the cold oats with peach slices. You can also add a drizzle of honey or maple syrup to sweeten these up.

Storage 

You will want to store your overnight oats in an airtight container and keep the oats in the fridge.  Store the oats for 2-3 days. As you store the oatmeal, it will alter the texture and flavor. So, don’t allow it to store for too long in the fridge. I eat them within 3 days for the best taste.

Keep your fruit stored separately and then place the fresh fruit on right before eating. This will help preserve the oats better. 

Recipe FAQs and Tips

  • I like to use mason jars, as they are the perfect single-serve container. You can buy a smaller-sized mason jar so you can create smaller portions. This is a great way to grab and go. 
  • If you would like you can use different sweeteners instead of pure maple syrup. Brown sugar, agave nectar, and other sweeteners can work. 
  • Feel free to mix in a little protein powder as well.
  • Ensure you allow the oat mixture to sit overnight as this will help soften the oats and absorb the flavors of this perfect make-ahead breakfast.
