Spoon in a jar of peaches and cream overnight oats

If you love peaches, these overnight oats are an absolute must-try! Ripe summer peaches are swirled into creamy rolled oats and a handful of other wholesome ingredients including coconut yogurt, chia seeds, and almond butter.

We love overnight oats because they require very little hands-on prep time (just 5 minutes) and the refrigerator does the rest of the work! Plus, this version is naturally sweetened and packed with plant-based protein and fiber. Swoon! This summery recipe is absolutely delicious and versatile (sub any other stone fruit). Let us show you how it’s done!

Health Benefits of Oats

We love oats around here! Not only can they make milk, granola bars, cookies, and muffins — they also come with some pretty neat health benefits, too.

Oats are a whole grain, making them rich in fiber. They’re also packed with antioxidants, magnesium, zinc, iron, selenium, and more. Research even suggests they may help support healthy cholesterol levels and have anti-cancer properties (learn more here).

How to Make Peach Overnight Oats

For those days when turning on the stovetop or Instant Pot to make your bowl of oats isn’t in the cards, overnight oats are the solution!

Making these peach overnight oats is super simple. Start by mixing together dairy-free milk with vanilla and salt for flavor, maple syrup for sweetness, nut butter for a protein-boost, and chia seeds to add thickness.

Pouring rolled oats into a jar

Then add the rolled oats and peaches, mashing the peaches a little so they release all that peachy goodness into the liquid! Top it off with swirls of coconut yogurt for MEGA peaches and cream vibes, and place it in the refrigerator to let the magic happen.

When it comes out 6+ hours later, the oats will be tender, the mixture will be thickened, and you’ll have delicious overnight oats ready to enjoy!

They’re the perfect make-ahead breakfast or snack, especially during summer (the peak of peach season)! Make them extra special by topping with more peaches, almonds, coconut sugar, or our Simple Grain-Free Granola.

Does it keep? 2-3 Days

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup plain unsweetened dairy-free milk (almond, cashew, or boxed coconut)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp almond or cashew butter
  • 1-1 ½ Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 dash sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (gluten-free certified as needed)
  • 1/4 cup diced peaches (ripe and juicy // thaw if frozen)
  • 2 Tbsp coconut yogurt (we used plain Culina // any thick yogurt will do)

FOR SERVING optional

Instructions

  • To a jar (wide-mouth is best) or small bowl with a lid, add dairy-free milk, vanilla, nut butter, maple syrup, salt, and chia seeds. Stir to combine. Leaving some bigger blobs of nut butter will add a nice textural component.
  • Add oats and diced peaches. Stir well, slightly mashing the peaches. Dollop the coconut yogurt on top and swirl into the oats. Leave some big clumps — again, they’re delicious the next day! Secure with a lid and place in the fridge for at least 6 hours or overnight.
  • The next day, add your preferred toppings (we like more peaches, granola, chopped almonds, coconut sugar, and/or freeze-dried peaches). Enjoy!
  • OPTIONAL: If you prefer warm oats, you can heat your oats in the microwave for 45-60 seconds (just ensure there's enough room at the top of your jar to allow for expansion and prevent overflow, and that it’s a microwave-safe container), or transfer oats to a saucepan and heat over medium heat until warmed through. Add more liquid as needed if oats get too thick/dry.
  • Overnight oats will keep in the refrigerator for 2-3 days, though best within the first 12-24 hours. Not freezer friendly.

    I don’t have yogurt in the house (waahh), but really want to try this. Is the yogurt absolutely essential (and I should just get myself over to the grocery store) or will oat milk do it?

    • Support @ Minimalist Baker says

      Hi Julia, it will still be tasty without the yogurt, but won’t taste like the “cream” element of peaches and cream! Hope that helps!

  2. Dana C. says

    Super good! I used some peaches that weren’t great by themselves, yet were delicious in the overnight oats. I also used oat milk, peanut butter, and Greek yogurt. I hope there are some more overnight oat recipes coming! :-)

    • Support @ Minimalist Baker says

      Amazing! We’re so glad you enjoyed them. There sure are more coming soon =) Stay tuned!

  3. Elham Watson says

    This is so good! I only had ripple milk on hand (pea protein based) and used forager plain yogurt, soooo delicious. Thanks!

  4. Susan says

    hi. This is SO delicious! I made mine with soy milk and without the yogurt and it was amazing! Very satisfying. Another great easy recipe! Thank you.

  5. Nina says

    Delicious! Made this with blueberries, regular plain yogurt, and left out the nut butter. It was fabulous and I loved the sweetness from the maple syrup! Will definitely make again with other fruits on hand and probably add a little flax seeds too.

    • Support @ Minimalist Baker says

      Woohoo! Love to hear this, isn’t versatility the best? Thanks so much for the lovely review and for sharing your modifications, Nina!

  6. Peggy says

    Made a bunch of these last night and just had one for breakfast. I used peaches and nectarines that were starting to turn and skipped the yogurt because I didn’t have any – still so delicious! Topped with some chopped pecans. Definitely going to make these again!

  7. Pat says

    Well again I did not have all the ingredients so I improvised. I did not have peaches (thought I did) so I used what I had which was sliced strawberries. I also out of almond butter so instead I used chocolate tahini (which is amazing by the way.) I believed I was out of chia seeds so I used a tablespoon of hemp hearts. Then I found the chia seeds so I added them. I’m excited to taste this recipe in the morning! Thank you.

      Hi Lucy! We haven’t tried this with quick cooking steel cut oats, but we are pretty sure it would work. Let us know how it goes if you give it a try!
