How To Make Peach Overnights Oats
Here’s how to make tasty overnight oats using fresh or canned peaches.
All you need to make this simple healthy breakfast for two are:
- Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats or quick oats if you don’t like the coarse texture of old-fashioned oats.
- Chia Seeds – We used white chia seeds, but they are exactly the same as black chia seeds. Use what you have at home.
- Milk of Choice – I use coconut milk because I like the flavor it adds to peaches. However, any option works, like soy milk for a natural boost of proteins or almond milk.
- Yogurt – You can use soy yogurt or coconut yogurt, feel free to pick your favorite.
- Fresh Peaches – I don’t peel peaches but wash their skin with cold tap water very well. You can peel the peaches if you like.
- Maple Syrup or any sweetener you like. You can also use a granulated sweetener like brown sugar, coconut sugar, or sugar-free erythritol.
- Vanilla Extract
Like any overnight oats recipe, start by picking a shallow bowl.
Most recipes call for mason jars, and they work. But after years of making overnight oats, I learned that shallow bowls are much easier.
The chia seeds won’t form lumps, and the ingredients are easier to stir together.
First, add the dry ingredients: oats, chia seeds, and cinnamon. Stir to combine evenly.
Add the liquid ingredients: milk, yogurt, vanilla extract, and maple syrup, and stir again.
Finally, fold in the chopped peaches and stir to combine.
Close the bowl with a lid and pop it in the refrigerator overnight. You must refrigerate overnight oats for at least 3 hours and up to 24 hours.
This peach overnight oat recipe serves two breakfasts and it’s delicious topped with some of the below ingredients:
- A drizzle of almond butter or peanut butter
- More fresh peaches
- More maple syrup
- A pinch of cinnamon
- Shredded coconut

- Seeds like hemp seeds or sunflower seeds
This recipe can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 or 4 days.
You can store it in the bowl you used to prepare the overnight oats or divide the recipe into smaller mason jars for ready-to-eat portions.
There are plenty of options to adapt this recipe to your allergies. Pick one or more from the below suggestions:
- Gluten-Free – Pick a gluten-free certified oat brands.
- Nut-Free – Choose nut-free milk like hemp milk, coconut milk, or soy milk.
- Sugar-Free – Any natural sugar-free sweetener, like allulose, erythritol, or sugar-free maple-flavored syrup, works. For stevia, use only a few drops, as this sweetener is extremely powerful.
- Chia Seed-Free – You can replace the chia seed with the same amount of ground flax seeds or leave them out and increase the oats by two tablespoons.
- Yogurt-Free – Replace the yogurt by more dairy-free milk.
