4 Ways to Have Peaches for Breakfast
It’s time for peaches! Well, okay, August is time for a lot of things. But peaches are among my favorite. Whenever we’re at the farmers market, we buy a basket full of peaches, but then I freak out because I have to figure out ways to use them all before they go bad. (And if they do start going bad, there’s no better use for mushy peaches than Peach Thyme Syrup!) So the inspiration for this post came from that question–hey, what are we going to do with all these peaches we just bought?

Peach Overnight OatsIt’s been a while since I posted an overnight oats recipe, but that doesn’t mean I don’t still love them! This is one of my favorite breakfasts because you can’t go wrong with fresh fruit and filling oats. Stir together 1/2 cup of rolled oats, 1/2 cup of vanilla almond milk, 2 tablespoons of chopped raw almonds, 2 teaspoons of chia seeds, and 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon in a jar or resealable bowl. Dice a small peach and put that on top. In the morning, give it a good stir and add more milk if you like or honey if you want your oats sweeter.

Blueberry Peach MuffinsReplace half the blueberries in your favorite blueberry muffin recipe with diced peaches! I love this recipe from Martha Stewart when I want to go all out, but Averie Cooks has a tasty lighter vegan blueberry muffin recipe too.

Peach ToastPEACH TOAST! This is my new favorite thing–not just for breakfast, but for snacks too. I spread a piece of whole grain toast with a little almond butter (this keeps the peaches from making the toast soggy), place thinly sliced peaches on top, drizzle with half a teaspoon of honey, then sprinkle ground flax seeds and cinnamon over the top.

Peachy Green SmoothieHa ha, get it? Peachy green? Okay, never mind. Blend together a banana, 2 peaches (pits removed, of course!), 1 peeled orange, 1 cup of vanilla almond milk, and a handful of spinach. Add a little sweetener if you like. This makes 2-3 big smoothies so share them with a friend or freeze the leftovers.

So there you have it: 4 ways to have peaches for breakfast. What’s your favorite way to use peaches?

Ive already been doing 1 & 3 pretty religiously this summer as I just can’t get enough of sweet, juicy peaches. Will have to test out the other two next!

I totally did not need more reasons to LOOOOVE peaches, but now I have some! Wanna know the best part? I just bought peaches today, and you’ve saved me from panicking over how to use them! High-five to you! Oh – but now I have to stress over which recipe to try first … 😀

haha oh man I’m the same way … last week I bought WAY too many peaches. Pretty sure I used them in just about everything so that they didn’t go to waste! I’m thinking I definitely need to make some peach toast!

peaches on toast sound interesting. although, i’m more likely to try the overnight oats. i can’t believe i’ve never made overnight oats before. is that weird? i just love oats warm in my belly..

Most overnight oat recipes are eaten cold, but they can be heated in the microwave if you prefer them warm. I’ve never tried it myself, but I’d do maybe 20 seconds at a time until it’s heated through, adding more liquid if needed.

These look so yummy. I bet the cold, creamy contrast for peach overnight oats is really and peach almond butter toast sounds especially delish too.

Oooh, I’ve never had peach toast with almond butter, but it sounds like a fabulous idea. I just nabbed some peaches at the farmers’ market, so I’ll definitely be trying it!
