How to Make Overnight Oats the EASY Way!

I’m such a creature of habit. I tend to start my day early with a workout, usually around 6/6:15, and then shower, get dressed, ect. If I’m taking my kid to school, I’m usually getting home around 9, which means I haven’t ate for a solid 14-15 hours. So, I’m HUNGRY!!

But here’s the thing, I want something with protein, something that’s nutritious, and something that will keep me full well into lunchtime. These easy overnight oats will always do the trick. Especially during the summer when it’s hot, this cold, creamy, filling breakfast is the perfect way to start my day.

Here’s how to make overnight oats – the EASY Way!

Ingredients for Peach Overnight Oats

Here’s a quick check list of the things you’ll need to make overnight oats:

  • Oats – Old Fashioned, NOT instant
  • Greek Yogurt – I prefer plain, full-fat Greek yogurt. Fage is my preferred brand.
  • Milk – I’ve been doing plain, unsweetened almond milk, but any milk you prefer will do the trick.
  • Chia Seeds
  • Honey or Granular Sweetener – I’ve actually been using Lankanto Monkfruit sweetener.
  • Vanilla extract or Almond extract
  • Salt – just a pinch or grind of your salt grinder
  • Fresh or frozen peaches, diced (feel free to leave the skin on to make it easier, the skin is nutritious!)
  • Chopped Walnuts – these are optional, but add a great crunch.

How do you make overnight oats?

In a mason jar or other resealable container, stir together the wet ingredients first; milk, yogurt, honey, and vanilla. Next, add the oats, chia seeds and salt. Stir together well. Lastly, stir in the chopped peaches or other preferred fruits.

Wait until just before eating in the morning to add walnuts or any other nuts.

How do you make overnight oats taste better?

Adding fresh fruits is a great way to add in flavor; peaches, cherries, blueberries and bananas are all great options. Make sure you are also including a sweetener. Honey, maple syrup or a granular sweetener are recommended. Lastly, before serving add some nuts, like walnuts, almonds or pecans for some crunch.

What peaches should I use for these peach overnight oats?

If peaches are in season (June – September) I would highly recommend using fresh, ripe peaches. If they are not in season, head over to the frozen foods section at the grocery store and get a bag of frozen peaches. You can chop up the frozen peaches and add them right into the oats – no need to thaw.

You can use canned peaches if you are in a bind, but be sure to read the labels – if they are packed in syrup, they are typically loaded with refined sugar, which isn’t good for you.

How long do you refrigerate overnight oats?

A minimum of 4 hours. Mix them up before you go to bed and refrigerate overnight. When you wake up in the morning they will be ready to eat.

How long will overnight oats keep in the refrigerator?

On average, overnight oats will keep well up to 5 days. This makes them a great meal-prep option for when you are looking to make your breakfasts ahead on the weekend for the upcoming week. If you’re looking to have breakfasts made in advance for yourself (highly recommend!) check out my Breakfast Meal Prep post!

Once you wake up in the morning, your healthy breakfast will be waiting. 

Add some extra peach slices and chopped walnuts for some crunch to the top of your oats.

Do you eat overnight oats warm or cold?

Traditionally, overnight oats are ate cold, however, if you would prefer to warm them up, you can certainly do that. To warm, place in a microwave-safe bowl, add a little extra milk, stir and then heat on 30-45 second increments until warm.

What toppings would be good with Peach Overnight Oats?

Peach overnight oats are great with additional peach slices and nuts like walnuts, pecans or almonds. Some other options are pecan, cashew or almond butter, granola clusters or an additional dollop of yogurt.
