An easy, portable, make-ahead breakfast recipe, your family will love these thick and creamy Peaches and Cream Overnight Refrigerator Oats.
My 2 year old is on a huge oatmeal kick and has been waking up requesting “eat-meal” almost every morning lately! It’s going to be a sad day when he realizes the correct way to pronounce it so in the meantime I’m going to happily oblige with his daily eat-meal requests.
Since we’re still kicking it around 90 degrees here in Michigan, I’ve been loving overnight refrigerator oats. It is nothing more than the combination of oats, yogurt and milk with any seasonal fruits and your favorite spices. In celebration of peach season, I decided to make a peaches and cream version of overnight oats scented with vanilla and nutmeg.
Juicy, ripe locally grown peaches are folded into the oats and served on top along with chopped walnuts for added texture, protein and healthy fats. Since it can be prepped up to 4 days ahead of time, breakfast is on the table faster than you can say “eat-meal.”
Your spoon is waiting.
Place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Store in an air-tight container and refrigerate overnight.
Serve with diced peaches and chopped walnuts if you wish.
