How to Make My Healthy Peaches & Cream Overnight Oats Recipe

Step 1: Toast the Oats

A

My first hack for adding flavor is to toast the oats first. This step is optional but really enhances the earthy flavor of the oats and makes them slightly crispier while reducing the mushy texture after they’ve been soaked. You can toast several cups of oats at a time, although this recipe only uses one cup.

Melt one tablespoon of butter for every cup of oats you will toast. Stir in the oats and add 1/4 teaspoon for every cup of oats. Mix well and then spread on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

Bake at 350°F for 12-14 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.

Step 2: Fill the Jar

Add the chia seeds, maple syrup, vanilla, apple cider vinegar, cinnamon, and salt to a jar or container with an air-tight lid. Gently stir with a spoon. Add your milk of choice and the toasted oats. Gently stir with a spoon until well combined. Secure the lid and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Step 5: Assemble your Oats

You can combine the oats, honey, almond caramel sauce, and sliced peaches however you like. You can layer them for a beautiful presentation or mix them all together. 

This is my favorite order for a beautiful presentation: oats, finely-diced peaches, honey greek yogurt, almond butter caramel sauce, and larger sliced peaches.

Peach Overnight Oats Recipe Notes

Oats Variations: You have the option to toast the oats for added texture and flavor. Toasted oats lend a nuttier taste and a slight crunch to the overnight oats.

Sweeteners: This recipe uses natural sweeteners like maple syrup and honey, making it a healthier choice. Adjust the sweetness to your preference by adding more or less of these sweeteners.

Storage Time: Overnight oats are best when left in the fridge overnight or for at least 3 hours. This allows the oats to absorb the liquid and become creamy and flavorful.

Almond Butter Caramel Sauce: This sauce adds a delightful richness to the oats. Feel free to make extra and use it for other dishes like drizzling over ice cream or pancakes.

Storage: Overnight oats can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
