It’s a fact. I love breakfast almost as much as lunch. It’s an easy meal that allows me to make awesome things my family will love, like this peaches and cream overnight oats recipe.
The idea for this came about when I was going to make my bananas foster overnight oats and my bananas were too green. I decided to use frozen peaches, let them thaw out and follow the recipe. It was delicious!
The following week, I bought a beautiful basket of peaches from the fruit stand, and like they say, the rest is history. I’ve had a busy week traveling, and these overnight oats are going to be made once again tonight so we can enjoy a delicious breakfast tomorrow.
