The idea for this came about when I was going to make my bananas foster overnight oats and my bananas were too green for that or my almond butter and banana overnight oats recipe. 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.

    Can I use something else besides whole milk? Skim maybe?

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      you can use skim milk but it won’t be “creamy” 🙂

  2. Courtney says:

    Just made this for tomorrow morning and have to say… My whole apartment smells AMAZING after sauteeing the peaches and vanilla! If it tastes anywhere near as good as it smells, I know I’m going to be in for a treat!

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      If only smell-a-vision existed. Enjoy!

  3. Laurie says:

    Okay… Dumb question here, I’m sure… But, do you eat them cold the next morning? I love the idea of this, but I can’t eat anything cold in the morning.

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      I like them cold Laurie. My husband warms his oats in the microwave for about 30 seconds. They are delicious too.

    Can you use almond milk?

    I love this overnight oat breakfast, tried bananas foster, strawberry, blueberry, apples and cinnamon. I use vanilla almond milk instead of milk and vanilla, 1 tsp of real maple syrup. Great stuff, thanks for sharing

  6. maureen says:

    Do we really need to heat the ingredients? Can I just put everything inside the jar?

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      you can, but heating the peaches breaks down the natural sugars and they are amazing. If you make it both ways, you’ll see the difference in taste. Enjoy!

  7. Tamil says:

    Hey Molly!Can you have a healthier way to make these??? Like less butetr, more eggs whites??? Idk these look super tasty and I want to be able to eat them but with all the extra stuff I don’t think I can eat it lol HELP!!!!!

  8. Adrienne says:

    Do I need to cover the jar while it’s in the refrigerator overnight? And at what point do I add the cinnamon ?

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      you don’t have to cover the jars if you don’t want to. I like to add a little pinch of cinnamon at the end and mix. it’s definitely optional.

  9. Tandra says:

    If you use frozen, how many ounces do you use?

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      Same as fresh.

  10. Nikki says:

    I tried this recipe last night and the overnight oats had a very strange taste. The peaches tasted so yummy, but the oats themselves seemed a bit off. Not trying again. Sorry!

  11. Christina says:

    I really like this recipe. Sautéing the peaches really brings out the sweetness. I used steel cut oats, and while I personally thought they were a little more al dente than I would go for, it didn’t take away from how much I like this. I used agave nectar since I didn’t have syrup. I also used a 50/50 mix of 2% milk and heavy cream the first time I made this, and half-and-half the second time. Both times it was creamy and delicious.

  12. What if I use another kind of oil for the sauteeing? Safflower is what I have right now.

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      that will be fine Erin. Enjoy!

  13. Alicia says:

    Does it have to be a mason jar? Or any container? And what would you suggest other than maple syrup I can’t stand the taste or smell of it not going to ruin peaches and cream with that (that and it’s too sweet) – would a simple syrup work I saw someone used nectar.

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      You can use any container you like, Alicia. I would suggest maybe brown sugar? oh yes, caramelized peaches.. yum!

    2. Laura Fuentes says:

      Hi Alicia, you can store your homemade syrup in any container/jar. Omit the maple syrup or use honey.
