Peaches and cream overnight oats make a satisfying breakfast. Prepared in advance, they are a grab ‘n’ go breakfast everyone will love. Use fresh peaches in the summer and frozen or canned peaches in the winter.
I try my best to do breakfast preparation in advance. In the morning I want everything ready to go.
When my husband is getting ready for work…breakfast is ready.
When one kid wakes up early and is instantly begging for food…breakfast is ready.
When the baby needs to nurse and everyone else is hungry…breakfast is ready.
Since we don’t eat store-bought cereal I need other quick and easy breakfasts that are ready for the family even if I’m busy.
Peaches and cream overnight oats are the perfect solution.
Simple, simple, simple.
It only takes about five minutes to prepare overnight oats. I line up jars for however many servings I’m going to make. Then just add the ingredients to each jar and mix.
Peaches and cream overnight oats only contain five ingredients. All of them except for the peaches are pantry and refrigerator staples. So you can whip up a batch just about any time.
Give them a boost.
In addition the five base ingredients you can add collagen for protein and egg yolk for vitamins. This will make peaches and cream overnight oats a very balanced breakfast. That includes three components:
- Protein – yogurt, collagen, egg yolk
- Carbohydrates – oats, peaches, maple syrup
- Fat – whole milk yogurt or coconut yogurt
One other thing I love is that the overnight soaking makes the oats much better for you!
Get ready to host.
These overnight oats are great for the whole family on a school day morning. But that’s not all.
Peaches and cream overnight oats are fancy enough for hosting overnight guests or a brunch. Mix up a bunch of small jars of the oats and leave the peaches on top. They look so elegant. Plus you can just pull them out of the fridge in the morning and have time to visit with your guests. No cooking necessary.
Change it up.
If you aren’t a fan of peaches in your yogurt or you just don’t have any on hand you can swap another fruit. Stone fruits like plums, apricots and nectarines work very well.
Or you can use berries and cherries. They can be fresh or go right from the freezer to the oat mixture. By morning they will be thawed and ready to go!
No matter what flavor you choose overnight oats are a perfect prep ahead breakfast. You can make them for a busy weekday morning or even make a batch while you enjoy some end of summer travel. All of the ingredients are available wherever you go.
On the go.
Peaches and cream overnight oats are also great for school lunches and snacks. Just mix it up the night before. Put a lid on and pack it in the lunch box. It is ready to go when your child is ready to eat.
By using gluten free oats this breakfast is not only delicious but also gluten, egg, nut, corn, soy and rice free. If you use coconut yogurt it is also dairy free. There is a version for just about everyone!
