When I was a kid, my absolute favorite breakfast was the instant Peaches and Cream oatmeal from the packets. You in that same boat? Truly, I loved all of the “‘n creams” and fruit-infused instant oatmeal, but the peaches was my all-time favorite.

When I put on my big girl britches in my mid-twenties and began making everything from scratch, I replaced the instant packs with what you see here – peaches and cream overnight oats with a little chia seed infusion to make it ultra thick, creamy, and infused with nutrients.

Full disclosure: it is very rare that I eat oatmeal these days. I absolutely LOVE oatmeal, but I find my body functions better on a primarily grain-free diet.

When I do eat oatmeal, I relish it with all my heart and soul, as I find it to be very comforting. I think it is important to give this extra information because one of the questions we food bloggers get asked frequently is whether we eat all the food we make.

In my case, I’d say I eat roughly 80 – 90% of what I make (I’m the queen of leftovers and dinner-for-breakfast) and the remaining 10 – 20% goes to friends, family, or my live-in garbage disposal. I do my best to never allow food to go to waste and I do taste test every recipe I make (whether it’s for a client or my blog).

In order to ensure I feel good about the authenticity behind this blog, I will be continually disclosing this type of information. It’s important to me that you and I have a transparent, trusting relationship, regardless of the fact that our connection is internet-based.

Okay, now that we got that out of the way and we’re sitting in the trust tree, THIS OATMEAL! It’s crazy tasty (yup, I did eat a small portion of it…again, how could I not??). Creamy, sweet but not overly sweet, and so incredible with those juicy hunks of peaches.

If you’re a busy bee, you can absolutely portion this oatmeal out into individual jars (after it has sat overnight) and take it with you as a grab-and-go breakfast.

The oatmeal keeps for a surprisingly long time – up to 7 days! If you want to be sure your peaches continue to taste fresh and funky, you can mix them in just before eating the oatmeal as opposed to mixing them in from the beginning.

Recipe Adaptations:

  • You can make this recipe your own by changing up the type of milk you use and the type of sweetener. I typically make my recipes on the less-sweet end, so if you find you prefer a sweeter oatmeal, feel free to add more pure maple syrup.
  • Add some protein powder and/or some almond butter to get a higher protein count.
  • This recipe can also be seen as a base recipe for all your other “and creams.” For instance, go with blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, apricots or banana (or any other in-season fruit) to change it up!
