What are the Benefits of Peach Pie Overnight Oats?
Just like our make-ahead Freezer Smoothie Packs, we are obsessed with this easy and healthy make-ahead breakfast idea. Here’s why:
Make-Ahead: You can whip up several of these on the weekend and have breakfast ready to go for the week. They just take minutes to put together.close
No Cooking Involved: The oats softened in the liquid as it sits in the refrigerator, which means no cooking is needed. Doesn’t get much easier.
Super Healthy: Breakfast doesn’t get much healthier than this! The combo of fresh or frozen peaches, oats, flaxseed (here’s why to eat flax), almond milk, and pecans provide fiber, protein, antioxidants, and valuable minerals. Cinnamon also has anti-inflammatory properties. We use all-natural sweetener in our recipe, like pure maple syrup in this one.
Eat On-the-Go: Whether you have just a few minutes before you leave for the day or need to eat breakfast in the car or at your desk, this breakfast-in-a-jar fits the bill! Eat these Peach Pie Overnight Oats cold or warm.
Eat a Muffin in a Jar: This combo of hearty oats and ground flax, sweet peaches (fresh and in season are best!), real maple syrup, and a dash of cinnamon and vanilla will remind your tastebuds of one of the best pies I know–the Peach Pie! Stir in chopped pecans to provide even more variety of texture and some added protein. It’s up to you, though.
How to Make Peach Pie Overnight Oats
In just four simple steps, you can throw together your overnight oats and be ready for the week. Here’s how:
- Build the Base: In a clean 10 ounce or 12-ounce mason jar, pour in your favorite (unsweetened) milk. Add old-fashioned or rolled oats and your all-natural sweetener of choice (pure maple syrup or honey).
- Add Fruit: Whether it’s fresh or frozen peaches (like this recipe), berries, or your favorite dried fruit, this ingredient adds more sweetness, flavor, and nutrition. We do recommend adding banana slices fresh rather than ahead of time, but they can work if you don’t mind mushy bananas.
- Add Toppings: Pour in the remaining add-ins, like pecans, cinnamon, and vanilla for this version.
- Shake and Refrigerate: Seal and shake. Set in the refrigerator for up to 3-5 days.

Do I Eat Peach Pie Overnight Oats Warm or Cold?
We hear this question a lot. The best way to serve Peach Pie Overnight Oats is…whatever you like best! Eating them cold or warm works.
Serve Overnight Oats Cold: Shake the jar. Stir in a little extra milk if it’s too thick and more sweetener if you’d like. Grab a spoon and eat your oats cold. This is the perfect solution for those mornings when you’re on the run!
Serve Overnight Oats Warm: This is our preferred way to serve overnight oats. Shake the jar and then remove the lid. Warm the oats in the microwave for about 45 seconds. Stir. Add more milk or sweetener as needed. Warm up even more, if desired.
