This easy overnight oatmeal is loaded with flavor from fresh peaches and crystallized ginger. And it only takes a few simple ingredients to throw it together.
My husband's parents visited us this week and we ate at a lot of restaurants. A lot. And although I kept trying to remind myself to photograph my meals, whenever my plate arrived at the table, I would inevitably forget.
So this week didn't result in many meal ideas. But it did result in this overnight oatmeal recipe! And I think this might be the easiest overnight oatmeal recipe I've made yet.
Since peaches are in season, I've made this a few times already this week. And it tastes like summer!
Oh, and this recipe is completely vegan friendly too!
How to Make Peach Overnight Oats
Overnight oatmeal is one of the easiest breakfasts we make these days. I love that I can just throw a few ingredients together in the evening and wake up to a delicious (and vegan friendly breakfast) that I can grab and go!
Here's how to make it:
Stir together one diced peach, ½ cup of oatmeal, ½ cup of almond milk (I like to use the vanilla flavored for this recipes), and about a teaspoon of minced crystallized ginger in a resealable container.
Refrigerate overnight. Stir and then eat the next morning. It's that simple!
If the peach was ripe enough, you shouldn't even need to add any sweetener. But if you do want a bit more sweetness, add a sprinkle of brown sugar, honey (which is not vegan), or agave syrup.
Tips & Variations
I like to mix one diced peach right into the oatmeal itself, and then top my oats with some extra fresh peach slices in the morning. You can opt for mixing all the peaches in, or using them all as a topping, if you prefer.
You can use any milk of your choice for this recipe. I prefer to keep mine vegan so I use almond milk - but any plant based milk will work fine. Oat milk, soy milk, and cashew milk are all good choice. And if you're not vegan, regular dairy milk works too.
For toppings, you can use fresh peaches or you can mix it up and try shredded coconut flakes or mixed nuts as well. If you have a favorite overnight oats topping, tell me in the comments!
