What Are Overnight Oats?

Overnight oats are a quick prep, no-bake, easy breakfast or snack that is made by soaking oats in milk (dairy or nondairy) and yogurt overnight. 

The result is creamy, healthy, delicious oats that will keep you full all morning.

What to Love About Overnight Oats 

Other than being a healthy, hearty, and delicious, ready to go breakfast, these overnight oats also are:

  • Creamy
  • Naturally sweet
  • Healthy
  • Satisfying

With 14 grams of protein, it’s a delicious make-ahead breakfast or snack you’ll love!

Are Peaches Healthy?

Rutgers University says that “fresh peaches are a moderate source of antioxidants and vitamin C which is required for the building of connective tissue inside the human body. Consumption of foods that are rich in vitamin C helps a person develop resistance against infections and helps to eliminate harmful free radicals that cause certain cancers.”

As far as nutrients go, one raw peach has 50 calories, 2 grams of fiber. It provides 6% of your daily vitamin A and 15% of vitamin C. Plus, contains daily values of vitamins E and K, niacin, folate, iron, choline, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, manganese, zinc and copper.

Pretty healthy, right?! And… they’re utterly delicious!

Peach Overnight Oats Ingredients

Specific ingredient measurements are in the recipe card at the bottom of this post, but here is an overview of what you will need:

  • Fresh peach
  • Nonfat plain or Greek yogurt (I like to use Greek yogurt for the added protein)
  • Rolled oats
  • Milk (dairy or non-dairy)
  • Honey for sweetness, but you can also use maple syrup if you prefer
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Chia seeds (optional but healthy and incredibly rich in nutrients. An ancient seed packed with fiber, protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and various micronutrients.)

How to Make Peach Overnight Oats

Overnight Oats are one of the easiest, healthy breakfasts you can make. Simple mix the ingredients together, add to a lidded jar and refrigerate until cold and refreshing.

Stir the mixture to fully immerse the oats in milk. Cover and chill overnight to let the oats soften and become creamy.

  1. Whisk together yogurt, milk, honey, cinnamon, peaches, and chia seeds if using. Then stir in oats.
  2. Divide into 2 lidded containers and refrigerate overnight.

Serving Peach Overnight Oats

Top with additional chopped peaches if desired, or drizzle a bit more honey on top for those who like it a bit sweeter. (Um… that might be me!)

Peach Overnight Oats Questions

Can you eat overnight oats hot?

You can eat oats anyway you like them. To heat, uncover, and microwave for 45-60 seconds. If the jar is filled to the top, you might want to transfer the mixture to a larger container or heat in a saucepan over medium heat until warmed through. 

How long can you store overnight oats in the refrigerator?

Overnight oats can be stored in an airtight container for up to five days in the refrigerator.

Can you use quick cook oats for overnight oats?

You can use either raw old-fashioned rolled oats or quick oats to make overnight oats. The texture with quick oats is a bit softer.

Do you have to add chia seeds?

Absolutely not! But chia seeds do contain good amounts of fiber and omega-3 fatty acids. They also provide high quality protein, as well as essential minerals and antioxidants, making it a healthy addition to overnight oats.

Can I substitute plain yogurt for Greek yogurt?

The best Greek yogurt substitution is plain yogurt. It does have a loose texture and will make the overnights oats a bit creamier.
