It is finally peach season here in New York and I'm so so excited! I can never choose a favorite fruit, because to me all fruit is so sweet and delicious.. but I'll have to say that peaches in season are definitely in my top 5! When I went to the farmers market last weekend I got one of those huge boxes of peaches so that I could attempt canning peaches for the first time. So I got my aunt's old water bath canner, dusted it off and grabbed some big mason jars.
This morning I wanted to can the peaches because they were at the perfect ripeness. I found this recipe for canning peaches on line that looked legit.. LOL.. yes you never know but it all sounded very accurate. I sanitized the jars and lids, blanched and de-skinned the peaches, packed the peaches into the jars, and poured the syrup mixture over them. Then finally I put them in the boiling water bath and waited about 25 minutes... after cooling off a bit I heard that glorious pop that pro-canners say to listen for. So, now they are resting on the counter looking mightily delicious. Fingers crossed that it worked!
I'm definitely buying more peaches to can, but I saved a couple out of this batch to make some tasty and easy peaches and cream overnight oats!
IS IT BAD TO EAT OVERNIGHT OATS EVERY MORNING?
No! You can eat overnight oats every single morning for a healthy breakfast! Oatmeal keeps you full longer because it is high in fiber.
ARE OVERNIGHT OATS GOOD FOR WEIGHT LOSS?
Yes! Overnight oats are excellent for weight loss. Oatmeal and chia seeds are high in fiber. Greek yogurt, milk, and chia seeds are high in protein. Both of these will keep you full longer. Plus, peaches and cream overnight oatmeal is super good for your gut health, a key is weight loss!
MORE ABOUT THE HEALTHY INGREDIENTS
Rolled oats are an excellent source of fiber, protein, and other nutrients like iron, thiamin and magnesium. You may see rolled oats also called "old fashioned" oats in the store.
Chia seeds are another excellent source of fiber and plant based protein. They are a rich source of healthy fats, iron, calcium, and other essential nutrients.
Yogurt is great for your gut health because it contains live and active good bacteria. It adds some extra protein and calcium to these overnight oats. Yogurt also gives overnight oats that creamy texture.
Vanilla soy milk is my favorite plant milk to use. It is a great source of protein, calcium, and vitamin D. You can use any type of milk you prefer in these overnight oats though.
Peaches taste amazing when they are in season. If you are making these out of season, frozen is a good substitution. Frozen fruit is usually picked and frozen at the peak of its ripe season, so you will get all the flavor and nutrition from it. Peaches also add a great deal of natural sweetener, so you can make these oats without added sugar!
More frequently asked questions about peaches and cream overnight oatmeal.
Are overnight oats healthier than oatmeal?
Yes! Overnight oats typically have more healthy ingredients like chia seeds and greek yogurt, giving you more nutrients and health benefits!
Can I use frozen peaches in overnight oats?
Yes! If you don't have fresh peaches, frozen peaches are a great alternative. They will thaw out into the oatmeal overnight.
How do I make peach overnight oats with no yogurt instead?
Replace the yogurt with milk for yogurt free overnight oats!
What about sour cream overnight oats?
I have heard of sour cream oats, but I would stick with a whole milk greek yogurt. This will give you all the creaminess, plus extra protein and good bacteria for you gut.
Can I make overnight oats with heavy cream?
You can make overnight oats with anything you want! But, I would stick with milk and yogurt, which will give you way more protein and keep you full longer than heavy cream.
How do I make peaches and cream overnight oats vegan?
Simply use vegan milk and yogurt in your oats! I like vanilla soy milk and coconut milk yogurt for a great vegan alternative.
How do I make stovetop peaches and cream oatmeal instead?
Yes! Instead of putting all your ingredients into jars, add them to a pan and cook it over the stove until thickened and bubbly. Add more milk if you want it a little thinner.
My recipe will give you 4 jars of peaches and cream overnight oats.
PEACHES N CREAM OVERNIGHT OATS INGREDIENTS
- 2 cups rolled oats (½ cup per jar)
- ¼ cup chia seeds (1 tablespoon per jar)
- 1 cup plain yogurt (¼ cup per jar)
- 2 cups milk of choice (½ cup per jar)
- 4 fresh ripe peaches (1 peach per jar)
Your grocery shopping list
- 4 fresh peaches
- Milk of choice
- Plain or vanilla yogurt
- Rolled (old fashioned) oatmeal
- Chia seeds
HOW TO MAKE MY PEACHES AND CREAM OVERNIGHT OATS RECIPE
Gather 4 glass jars that have lids. I like to use mason jars. Divide the rolled oats, chia seeds, plain yogurt, and milk evenly between each jar.
In each jar you will have: ½ cup rolled oats, 1 tablespoon of chia seeds, ¼ cup yogurt, and ½ cup milk.
SUBSTITUTIONS: use flax seeds in place of chia seeds, use greek yogurt, use any other type of milk.
NOTE: flavored yogurts have a LOT of sugar. The ripe peaches and plant milk add quite a bit of sweetness, but if you want them sweeter simply add a bit of honey or maple syrup.
Whisk all the ingredients together with a fork to completely combine. Make sure to really mix it and that there are no chunks of chia seeds. Chia seeds in clumps will not gel properly and not taste very good.
Another way to mix your overnight oats together is to put the lid on top tightly and shake them up!
I like to add my fruit after I have mixed all the other ingredients together, but if you want them to be more mixed into the oats and have some little pieces of peaches, stir them in at the beginning.
Store your overnight oats in the fridge for up to 5 days! If you are not going to eat 4 jars of oats within 5 days, make a half batch. Or, if you are preparing breakfasts for the family, make a bigger batch! These are super easy to make a lot of and really simple to add in some of your other favorite ingredients.
