Below are the ingredients you'll need to make peach pie overnight oats. For the most part, the recipe consists of our usual overnight oats suspects, plus some extra ingredients to create those peach pie vibes.
- Whole rolled oats - Rolled oats work best in this recipe, for the ratios I've tested and recommend. Save your quick oats or steel cut oats for another recipe!
- Chia seeds - Make these oats thick and creamy, plus added omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and protein. If you're interested, read more on chia seed health benefits.
- Salt - Enhances the overall flavor and balances sweetness.
- Cinnamon - A classic peach pie flavor and tastes delicious with peaches.
- Milk - Any milk will work, so pick your favorite. I recommend a few types of milk in my protein overnight oats recipe, so if you're going for protein-packed, check that out!
- Greek yogurt - Makes the overnight oats thick, creamy, and high in protein.
- Maple syrup - Or your favorite natural sweetener to add a little sweetness to the overnight oats.
- Peaches - Fresh, juicy peaches are best here. You'll know your peach is ready to use when it's fragrant and gives slightly when you push gently into the flesh with your thumb.
- Nuts - optional for topping! I love the added crunch of almonds, pecans, walnuts, or pistachios.
How to Make Peach Overnight Oats
If you've been around the site at all, you know we have the overnight oats formula down to a science. We'll take our usual creamy, pillowy overnight oats base that we use for all of my overnight oats recipes, spike it with cinnamon, vanilla, and maple syrup. Then, we top it with juicy fresh peaches! Here's the breakdown of steps:
Combine oats, chia seeds, salt, and cinnamon in a mason jar or bowl, and stir together.
Add milk, maple syrup, Greek yogurt, and vanilla extract to the jar.
Stir, or cover the jar tightly and shake to combine all the ingredients together.
Place a cover on the jar (or container of choice), and store in the fridge overnight, or for at least three hours.
After the oats have had their time to soak, take them out of the fridge.
Top with diced fresh peaches and nuts (almonds, pecans, walnuts, etc.), and enjoy!
If you know how to make the recipe fit a certain diet, let the reader know here. Don't fake it - only provide guidance on topics you have actual experience with.
- Vegan - Use plant-based yogurt and milk to make vegan overnight oats. Also, make sure you don't use honey has a sweetener, as the oats will no longer be vegan.
- Sweetener - If you don't have maple syrup on hand, try honey, agave, or another unrefined sweetener (such as coconut sugar).
We LOVE overnight oats and have several variations on Roots and Radishes! Here are our faves:
- Cherry lime - Sweet summer cherries, lime juice, and lime zest make a delicious combo. The base flavor is reminiscent of key lime pie!
- Blueberry lemon zest - Plump blueberries, lemon juice, lemon zest, and vanilla.
- Protein - Two ways to make protein overnight oats (plant-based and dairy-based). Make these into any flavor combo and know you're getting a protein-packed breakfast!
- Kiwi Coconut - Our usual base overnight oats recipe with the addition of coconut and kiwi.
- You could also double down on oats and top with some granola for a little something crunchy-sweet.
To make peach pie overnight oats, you can use any container you have on hand. I love using wide mouth mason jars or glass storage containers with a cover.
Store overnight oats in an airtight container in the fridge for up to five days. I recommend storing your peaches and nuts separately, and adding to the peach pie overnight oats just before you enjoy them.
Peach Pie Overnight Oats FAQ
I almost always add fruit after my overnight oats have soaked. Otherwise, the fruit tends to get soggy and browned while sitting in the fridge. Some fruits do okay adding before, such as berries or whole cherries. That said, you still get the freshest plump and juicy fruit when you add after overnight oats (right before eating). I highly recommend adding peaches right before you eat your oats!
By nature, overnight oats will have a yogurt-like texture (i.e. they won't be dry if done right). But, they are not meant to be runny or soggy! The key is making sure you have the right ratio of liquids to oats and chia seeds, and that you let the overnight oats soak long enough for the liquid to absorb. My recipe uses a tested and true ratio/method that always yields thick and creamy overnight oats!
Nope! I make thick, creamy overnight oats in with at least three hours in the fridge all the time. They do get slightly thicker with more time, but three hours is a good minimum for overnight oats to be ready to eat.
Add the peaches and nuts just before you're ready to enjoy these oats for the freshest texture.Print
