Peach Overnight Oats
Overnight oats provide a quick and easy on the go breakfast option with very little prep work required. The combination of protein packed oatmeal, yogurt and milk make this easy breakfast meal a healthy option when you need something quick. With peach season in full bloom, we made these delicious Peach Overnight Oats topped with almond butter granola and honey.
How to make overnight oats
Overnight oats are easy to make in a mason jar or airtight container. The basic recipe includes mixing oatmeal (not quick oats), Greek yogurt and milk. The oatmeal absorbs the liquid overnight, making them soft and ready to eat in the morning. We have a milk allergy in our family, so we typically make our overnights with almond milk. They can be made with regular milk, almond, soy, whatever milk your family prefers.
I’m adding my basic overnight oat recipe below, but I wanted to share how we made this oatmeal recipe. Instead of using plain Greek yogurt, we used vanilla and added a drizzle of honey and almond butter granola on top. The combination was perfect! With the flavored yogurt we didn’t feel like it needed brown sugar mixed in. My recommendation is to play around with the sweetener and yogurt combinations until you find what your taste buds prefer. The Trader Joe’s almond butter granola added a great crunchy texture. You can find the Almond Butter Granola HERE.
