The great thing about this peach overnight oats recipe is you literally only have to add the ingredients to a jar and leave it overnight - that’s all! I can’t think of anything easier.

This oat and peach-based breakfast has a similar flavor to old-fashioned peach pie, offering hints of vanilla and cinnamon. It’s gluten-free too. Have you ever made an overnight oats recipe before? If so, try this peach-based one for a change tomorrow morning. If not, well, you are in for a real treat!

Extra peaches? No problem! These peach cupcakes are always a great option you can't go wrong with. Or how about this peach cobbler for two if you're looking for something a little more romantic?

Main Ingredients

The ingredients to make peach overnight oats laid out on a table.

This wonderful peach overnight oats breakfast is a simple combination of basic ingredients. You probably already have most or all of these on hand. Here are the main ingredients in this peach overnight oats recipe.

  • Peaches: Canned peaches are ideal for this recipe since their soft texture goes nicely with the other ingredients. If you have fresh peaches to use up, those would also be great. Peeling them first is optional. Another idea would be to use nectarines or in fact any soft fruit or berries.
  • Rolled oats: Oats are a staple in many breakfast recipes, such as oatmeal and flapjacks. Here they not only add flavor but also make the dish more satisfying and help keep you full for longer. These might be labeled as rolled oats or old-fashioned oats.
  • Chia seeds: These crunchy little seeds are a powerhouse of nutrition, offering fiber, antioxidants, and important minerals. If you don’t have any, use sesame seeds instead, or simply leave them out.
  • Milk: You can use any kind of milk in this recipe; dairy, soy, almond, coconut, or rice milk. My favorite is vanilla almond milk.
  • Vanilla: Vanilla seems to go with all fruit-based recipes! It’s especially good with peaches. If you’re using vanilla almond milk though, you might prefer to leave it out. If not, treat yourself and add an extra squirt!

Instructions Overview

This is one of the easiest breakfast recipes I have ever made! Really, it takes longer to make toast than it does to prepare this.

You need to grab all your ingredients; oats, chia seeds, peaches, vanilla, salt milk, and cinnamon. Now find a mason jar or another food container that seals and add the ingredients to it. Stir well then refrigerate overnight.

That’s it! See how straightforward this recipe is? You can experiment with other kinds of fruit, milk, and flavorings afterward. Once you have made this easy breakfast recipe once you will definitely want to make it again and again. It’s a keeper!

Common Questions

Why are my overnight oats slimy?

The oats will get a little slimy because the oat starches release in liquid over time. If you really don't like this texture don't eat this more than a day after making it or try using a little less milk and see whether you prefer the texture. Don't use much less liquid though, otherwise the oats won't soften enough.

What should overnight oats look like?

Of course, this is going to depend on the recipe. These peach overnight oats should look something like the photo but of course you can tweak it and add other colorful fruits to the mix to pretty it up!

Can you use regular oats for overnight oats?

You'll see the recipe calls for rolled oats, which are also known as old-fashioned oats. So, you might be curious if you can use another kind. Regular old-fashioned oats are the best kind to use, or thick rolled oats. Avoid both steel-cut oats which are too firm and chewy to make good overnight oats and instant oats which will just disintegrate in the liquid.

How do you make good overnight oats?

I've had great results following this recipe but I'll give you an important tip. Don't forget to give the mixture a good stir before eating it. This ensures the ingredients and chewy and soft textures are evenly distributed throughout the mixture.

Why add chia seeds to overnight oats?

Chia seeds are healthy and filling, which is reason number one. But they also help thicken the mixture and give your overnight oats a creamier, pudding-like texture. Of course, it isn't compulsory to even use chia seeds in there but I nearly always add them to mine.

Can I make overnight oats ahead?

You will need to make this recipe at least 8 hours before eating it. This gives the oats and chia seeds enough time to combine with the milk and soften. It also gives the flavors time to blend.

Can I freeze this breakfast recipe?

It can be frozen for up to 3 months. If you want to make more and freeze it, keep each one in a separate container and pop it in the refrigerator the night before eating it.

How do I store it?

You can keep this pudding in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, so it’s worth investing in a set of 5 mason jars and meal-prepping for the week ahead!

What should I serve with this?

Since it’s a breakfast recipe, I’d suggest a cup of coffee and maybe a glass of orange juice. If you’re having it for brunch, what about some bacon and eggs on the side too?

Chopnotch Tips

  • The sweetness of the peach means you don’t have to sweeten this recipe. If you do want to though, just stir in some sugar, honey, or your preferred sweetener.
  • If you freeze this, leave it in the refrigerator overnight to thaw. Still a bit frozen in the middle? Give it 10 minutes on the countertop and it should be fine.
  • Experiment with different fruits (pear, nectarine, raspberries, etc.) and kinds of milk (almond milk, soy milk, whole milk, etc.) to find out which you like best.
