It seems that every time I'm on Pinterest, or Instagram, or various foodie places, I am seeing a picture of overnight oats. Much like I was obsessed with making my version of avocado toast, I have been enamored with the idea of a luvvly overnight oats recipe of my own.
Thus, the sumptuous peach crumble overnight oats recipe was born.
Southern, healthy, hearty, and delicious, this is a breakfast that fulfilled all of my breakfast desires, which is saying a lot. Some may say I'm the breakfast queen, and by some, I mean only me because I'm obsessed with breakfast foods. But do as the breakfast queen says and try this ASAP. Your mason jars are begging to have food eaten out of them!
Peach Crumble Overnight Oats
2 cups of whole grain or rolled oats
2 cups of almond milk
2 tsps of chia seeds
2 tsps of cinnamon
2 tsps of brown sugar
1 tsp of nutmeg
Before actually making the oats, you are going to be baking some peaches-- sweet, mouth-watering peaches. First, you need to cut your peach up into slices. Top those slices with the cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar, then bake at 350 for about 10 minutes. I made probably way more slices than necessary because they're also a super simple snack to keep around. They would be great for yogurt, or a guilt free dessert!
After the peaches are baked, chop up however many you want for the cold oats. I chopped up about 1 tsp worth, but if you want it chunkier chop up more. Just make sure to leave some slices available to put on top of your cold oats.
With the ingredients ready, mix the oats, almond milk, chia seeds, chopped up baked peaches, and optional honey in a bowl. Then cover this bowl with a lid. I don't suggest only using plastic wrap, you really want there to be no air at all coming in so that the oats best absorb the milk. This will work with other types of milk, but almond milk is oftentimes the healthiest choice (and it makes this recipe vegan).
When you get up in the morning half awake until the coffee sets in, you don't have to worry about putting together a healthy breakfast for you and your family, because it's already done! Pull the oats out of the fridge and serve.
I warmed my peach crumble up in the microwave for about thirty seconds which made it just the right amount of breakfast cozy. Then I used some of my leftover peach slices to top the oatmeal with. It maybe took a total of 1 minute to put together in the morning. I ate mine on my morning commute, and it was oh so delicious and incredibly filling. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
