Peachy Keen Overnight Oats

Overnight oats- the concept sounds great, but I’ll be the first to say some of the recipes out there haven’t left me really wanting to wakeup for breakfast (normally I wake up and it’s like a beeline to the kitchen… seriously). ​



I tried to figure out what it was I didn’t like in other recipes, and then make my own… and wouldn’t ya know, I skipped to the kitchen this morning to gobble down these peachy oats.

Key word- PEACHy. I’m convinced the selection of fruit is crucial for overnight oats. I’m a huge fan of fresh sliced bananas on my stovetop oats, but not overnight. Same goes for berries- the change in the fruit texture overnight(s) just doesn’t do it for me. BUT peaches! and cinnamon! it just might make you think “let’s hurry up and go to sleep so I can wakeup and eat again”.


KISS Tip #1: Cut down on time by using canned peaches, just purchase the ones canned in water or “in its own juice” or 100% juice, then rinse in a colander.


The cinnamon. Ohhhhh the cinnamon.


KISS Tip#2: Mason jars or these little canisters make for the perfect breakfast on-the-go, however the oats can also be emptied into a bowl and microwaved for 30-45 seconds until warm.

  1. Yummy! peaches and cinnamon is one of my favorite flavor combos! I also love the idea of heating up overnight oats, the cold oatmeal thing doesn’t really do it for me, unless its super hot out.

    1. Hi Heather! Yes!! My thoughts exactly on the hot and cold. Here in Texas, we’re warming up fast, so this was actually a refreshing cool snack, but I’m also enjoying it warm for breakfast :).

  2. I’m ALWAYS looking for different takes on overnight oats. This one looks divine! Thanks for the recipe, Shannon!

    1. Hi Danielle! Thanks so much for stopping by- hope you enjoy the recipe! I was also thinking of trying it out with mango :).
