Peach overnight oats are just like having dessert for breakfast. They are naturally sweet, filling and delicious.
Peaches are in season in July and August, so I stock up and start to make everything with peaches as soon as they make an appearance. First up is peach and blueberry overnight oats, the perfect blend of summer fruits and oatmeal for a nutritious breakfast.
Make up a few jars at one time, or a large batch and breakfast is ready to go. One less thing to worry about on those busy mornings!
- It's perfect for a quick, easy healthy breakfast, filled with fiber and protein.
- It's customizable, see the recipe variations below.
Here is what you will need
- old fashioned rolled oats
- chia seeds
- almond butter
- two - eight ounce mason jars
Here is how to make it
Please note: this is a summery of recipe steps to make this recipe, see the recipe card below for detailed steps.
Cut up the peaches into bite sized pieces and set them aside. Add equal amounts of oats, water, nut butter and chia seeds to each of two jars and mix them together.
Stir in the fruit, cover the jars and place them in the refrigerator overnight.
Top the oats with sliced peaches and a handful of fresh blueberries.
The best type of oats to use for overnight oats are old fashioned rolled oats, especially if you are soaking them overnight or longer. They are the perfect texture.
You can also use quick oats if you in a hurry, they can be ready in an hour. I don't recommend letting the quick oats soak for longer than one night unless you like mushy oatmeal.
I have not tried steel cut oats to make overnight oats so I cannot recommend them.
Most recipes for overnight oats use milk or nut milk, but I prefer to use water. When water is combined and soaks the oats, it turns milky and is creamy enough. If you prefer super creamy overnight oats, you can replace the water with your favorite milk, or add a tablespoon of yogurt.
Heating Overnight Oats
Overnight oats can be eaten cold right out of the refrigerator, at room temperature or you can heat them in the microwave at 30 second increments until they are warm throughout.
Storing Overnight Oats
You can store overnight oats covered in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. The longer they sit in the fridge, they softer they will become.
Freezing overnight oats is not recommended.

I've never made overnight oats before or used chia seeds actually. I should make this recipe to cross both of those items off my culinary checklist 😉
I hope you give it a try, it's really good!

You will think I am crazy when I say that I have never tried overnight oats. I think that has to change! This looks really good. I love the fresh blueberries and peaches - those are my favorite fruits.
You are not crazy Cynthia! I like overight oats because they really aren't like hot oatmeal at all!
I do love overnight oats although I don't eat them as often as all that, somehow. Love the additions here.
Great minds think alike! I definitely need to throw in some blueberries next time!
