Peachy overnight oats make a great breakfast meal prep option. They give the perfect amount of sweetness and are a great option to grab on the go.
Overnight oats have been popular for a while now and with good reason. They are easy to make the night before and keep in the refrigerator overnight for breakfast the next morning. You can also make several jars of overnight oats to have for the week since they make a great meal prep for breakfast.
Not only are overnight oats a great healthy meal option, they are also simple to make. Overnight oats typically consist of raw oats and milk. Also adding yogurt gives the oats a creamy pudding-like consistency. A rule of thumb is you will want double the amount of liquid as oats, and yogurt counts as liquid as well as the milk. The oats absorb in the liquid overnight so you don’t have to cook them before putting the overnight oats together.

How to make Peachy Overnight Oats
To make the over night oats, place oats, chia seeds, almond milk, Greek yogurt, and half brown sugar in a bowl. Mix everything together well. Add the oatmeal mix into mason jar, or any container you’d like. Screw lid onto mason jar, or tightly cover other container. Place in the fridge overnight. In the morning, remove the jar of oatmeal from the fridge and place sliced peaches on top, and sprinkle with remaining brown sugar.
My preference is to use almond milk, but any nut milk will work. I also like to use Greek yogurt, vanilla or plain works. I put peaches and brown sugar on my overnight oats to mimic a peach cobbler taste. However, there are an endless variety of toppings that you can use on your overnight oatmeal.
How long will overnight oats last in the refrigerator?
Overnight oats can be stored in an airtight container for up to five days in the refrigerator. The longer they sit in the fridge, the softer the oats will become.
