Happy Monday! I am back in Lexington after an amazing week at Zap Fitness! I am going to recap my time there on Wednesday, but for now, I am hoping to take the relaxation and calm I felt into this week….lets see how long it lasts 🙂
I am afraid this recipe may be reaching some of you too late if peaches are already out of season. I am sure many of you have already moved on to everything pumpkin, but luckily for the Kentucky-ians (or anyone in the South), peaches are still around, and are so juicy right now. Make the most of them while they still last!
A few years ago I posted my recipe for Corner Bakery Cafe Overnight Oats, and this is still a very similar recipe, but with a few changes, and the nutrition taken up a level. I still love the original from Corner Bakery Cafe, and actually had it when I was in Chicago for the wedding, but this is the best I can do when I am at home.
If peaches are out of season for you, you can substitute any fruit and nut combination you like into here. You could swap out 1/4 cup of the milk, and add in pumpkin instead. Or you could cut up a pear into small pieces and add that in there instead. This recipe is really flexible, and the best part is, you can make this ahead of time, and eat it all week….even for dinner as a Silk #MeatlessMondayNight!
Yes, I did say for dinner! I have done that a few times, and I LOVE having breakfast for dinner, especially when I am feeling lazy. I have told you before that I do not really drink cows milk anymore, but I definitely love almond and soy milk (as well as many of the other milks Silk has come up with). This way I can get the calcium I need, and make delicious recipes like this, without pumping my body full of hormones from the regular dairy milk.
So join Confessions of a Mother Runner, Silk, and I to put meat and dairy aside for your Monday Night meals this season, and check out the silk website….if you love Football. And if you don’t, well, you should be eating Meatless anyway 🙂
Peach and Almond Overnight Oats
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
3 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup steel cut oats
2 cups Silk Almond milk (or any other dairy free milk)
1/2 cup vanilla protein powder
1 cup Greek Yogurt (or Silk’s new Dairy Free Yogurt)
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/4 cup almonds, cut into small pieces
2 peaches, cut into small chunks
Mix the milk and oats together in a large bowl with a lid. Place in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
Stir in the greek yogurt, protein powder and chia seeds. Stir well.
Add the almonds and peaches, stir, and return to the fridge for when you are ready.

How often do you have breakfast for dinner? Do you drink alternative milk sources?
Breakfast for dinner is always a good idea when you can get away with it! I use coconut milk the most with almond being second.
We had a peach festival at our Farmer’s Market a few weeks back and it was amazing!!! Unfortunately, I don’t have any of them left but they definitely still have them in the store. I need to try overnight oats this fall and this sounds like the perfect recipe! Thanks Tina 🙂
Love this and I really like Corner Bakery! It’s fairly new here and I haven’t tried their breakfasts but totally saw the overnight oats version on their menu and keep meaning to get there for it.
This looks really good Tina. I’ve been really enjoying fresh peaches from NJ lately. Nothing really beats the taste of peaches! Thanks for sharing, I always enjoy your recipes since they are so simple!
I just recently got on the overnight oats train. I love the convenience. And you can’t go wrong with brinner aka breakfast for dinner!
I definitely love peaches and I could eat breakfast all day long, so this is great!
Tina, adding peaches is brilliant. I love peaches and I have no idea why I never thought to put them in my oatmeal. Pinning for menu planning.
You do love Corner Bakery! You got their oats when we met before the Chicago Marathon!
This looks so, so good, Tina! Yes, peaches are still very much in right now, and I’m very happy to continue using them. Love how easy and nutritious this breakfast is!
I really want to like oatmeal more! I do love breakfast for dinner. This looks yummy and I do love peaches too. Happy Meatless Monday
Oh yum! We actually do have some peaches that we can still pick locally–they seem to be a little late in the season this year, but that’s fine by me!
Zapp fitness sounds fun! I’m going to tag you with @Suzelyfe you too are all about the peaches this week and are talking me into getting some more this week at the farmer’s market. And overnights oats are always a hit!
Never too late for peaches! This looks delish, love the combo with the almonds!!!
Yum!! This looks so good!!!
I use almond milk if I am going to use milk, but I don’t drink it too much anymore except in smoothies and recipes. This looks great! I need to get some peaches before they go out of season.
I’ve actually been to a Corner Bakery Cafe – the last time I went to the States. I feel quite chuffed I know what you’re talking about hehe.
Yum! Wishing I would have made overnight oats last night! I am a huge Brinner, breakfast for dinner, fan so maybe overnight oats will have to be on the menu because I’m tired and have a long day ahead of me.
I definitely had oatmeal for dinner recently… I wasn’t feeling well and just wanted comfort food but didn’t have any soup!
This sounds delicious, Tina! Thanks for sharing this recipe! Since I live in Arkansas, we definitely still have some peaches hanging around; I like to freeze them, as well, so I could do this one anytime. Hope you have a great Monday!
I do love me some overnight oats! I’ve never had them with peaches, but that does sound delicious! I bet I could still find a good one here in NY. 🙂
i love overnight oats and last night I packed mine with blueberries and almond…and guess what it is still sitting on my counter top 🙁 love the idea of peaches with my oats.
I still have yet to make overnight oats. This does look good though, and I much prefer peaches to pumpkins (is that blasphemy in the fall?). I do love breakfast for dinner though I usually go savory when I do it. And I definitely love Silk. Thanks for hosting the linkup!
I have been on an overnight oats kick for a few weeks now; this looks like a great way to switch it up!
Who’s going to argue with oatmeal & adding peaches is always a good idea!
I love eating overnight oats for my pre-workout fuel/afternoon snack 🙂 I’m loving this yummy recipe, peaches are still abundant here in the south, I’ve gotta remember to pick a few more up!
I love having breakfast for dinner too! It feels like you’re being a bit naughty but actually it can be full of all the right foods and it’s usually far quicker to get ready. Winner, winner 😉
Breakfast for dinner is almost a weekly staple in our house. Some variety of oats or eggs and potatoes always makes for a great meatless meal! We still have some fresh peaches in Washington, so this recipe is just in time!
You can NEVER go wrong with breakfast for dinner, especially when it is a hearty and warm bowl of oatmeal! I have actually still been eating peaches this week and they are juicy, even all the way up north out to sea on Nantucket. I’m going to enjoy them as long as possible! 🙂
I’m slightly jealous that you guys still have peaches down there! I love fall and I’m kind of psyched that things are starting to cool down around here, but peaches are one of my favourite fruits and I feel like we don’t get them for long enough up here!
Such a healthy and tasty oats, I would love to try soon.
Ive gotten so out of the OVERNIGHT habit with summer and lazy mornings. I need to get back into the habit.
We have tons of peaches here!! This sound so delicious and so easy. I’ll have to make it and give to my kids for breakfast one morning. Thanks for sharing!
