Ginger Peach Overnight Oatmeal Recipe

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!

Ginger Peach Overnight Oatmeal

How to Make Overnight Oatmeal

  • Stir together one diced peach, 1/2 cup of oatmeal, 1/2 cup of almond milk (I like to use the vanilla kind), and about a teaspoon of minced crystallized ginger in a resealable container.
  • Refrigerate overnight.
  • Stir and then eat the next morning.

If the peach was ripe enough, you shouldn’t need to add any sweetener. But if you do want a bit more sweetness, add a sprinkle of brown sugar, honey, or agave syrup.

    I know, I went out to dinner Tuesday and even had my camera and forgot to take a pic of half of it then figured why bother with the rest. Plus I didn’t want to explain to the family what I was doing and answer 50 questions! HA!

    I love that your oatmeal recipe is a no-cook version … sometimes hot oatmeal on a warm summer day just doesn’t do it. But this would be so refreshing. Bet it would be great as a summer desert, too. Thanks for sharing!

      Thank you! It was a nice visit and thankfully the weather cooperated–only a little bit of rain & not too hot either. When my family visited, it rained the whole time & we couldn’t do much!

    I don’t have any crystallized ginger in the cupboard now, but you are making me want to stock up for when peaches come in. Thanks for the link to the walnut-encrusted tempeh, I’m always looking for new ideas for tofu and tempeh and it looks great!

      My favorite local spice shop sells crystallized ginger at the register, so it always ends up being my impulse buy whenever I’m there. I’ve been putting it in everything I can think of! 🙂

    I finally got around to trying overnight oatmeal last night using this recipe, and I love it! Cold oatmeal is so much nicer when it’s hot out, plus I was trying to microwave the instant packets for my breakfast at work and that was just turning out gross.

    Thanks for turning me on to something new and fabulous (and healthy!).

      I’m so glad you liked it! I feel the same way about oatmeal now–I used to eat it hot year-round, but having it cold is perfect for summer. And adding lots of fruit makes it so much more filling than those packets!

      They’re dry – they soften overnight, so there’s no need to cook them.

    Tried the ginger peach overnight oats today. I don’t think I’ve ever had that flavor combination before, which is what drew me to it. It was surprisingly good, though I think I chopped up the ginger too finely or it was old or something… There were only about 3 bites that actually had a distinct ginger taste. Might just have to try it again. Shucks!
