This healthy peach crisp overnight oat recipe is exactly what your summer mornings have been missing!

By now you know I’m obsessed with overnight oats. They’re just so creamy and convenient.

This recipe is a special one as I only make it in July and August when peaches are nice and ripe here in Colorado.

Unlike many other oat recipes, this healthy peach crisp overnight oat recipe has a great balance of textures: creamy from the overnight oat base, juicy from the fresh peaches, and a bit of crunch from the granola on top.

If you’re looking to change up your family’s breakfast routine, make a batch of these healthy peach overnight oats! You won’t be disappointed!

Ingredients Used to Make Peach Overnight Oats

  • Old fashioned rolled oats: For the best texture, I recommend using old fashioned, rather than quick-cooking, oats. My go-to brand is Bob’s Red Mill as they use organic, certified gluten-free oats. For a chewier texture, try their Extra-Thick Rolled Oats
  • Chia seeds: Chia seeds are important to help thicken overnight oats. They also add a good boost of essential minerals and omega-3’s as well. I like buying mine in bulk online.
  • Cinnamon: Just a pinch of good-quality cinnamon is key for that peach crisp flavor.
  • Peaches: Use in-season, ripe yellow peaches.
  • Oat milk: Any unsweetened milk alternative will work. However, coconut milk will change the flavor slightly. You can also use whole cow’s milk instead. 
  • Greek yogurt: For protein and extra creaminess, I like to add unsweetened whole milk Greek yogurt. However, you can leave it out if preferred. 
  • Vanilla extract: Just a splash gives these oats that dessert flavor.
  • Maple syrup (optional) For a little sweetness, add a dash of maple syrup. You can also leave it out. 
  • Granola: Make sure to pick a low-sugar, lower-calorie granola that’s either vanilla or cinnamon flavored. My go-to is Bear Naked’s Vanilla Almond Granola

How to Make Peach Crisp Overnight Oats

When making this healthy overnight oat recipe, you have two options for how to make it, depending on whether you want to layer your ingredients or not.

The easy way (a.k.a. Not layered):

  1. Make your overnight base in each mason jar and top with the peach mixture. Option to either leave the peaches on top or stir them into your oats. Fridge overnight.
  2. In the morning, add the granola and dig in!

The prettier, but more involved, way:

  1. Mix the overnight oat base ingredients in a jar or small container. In another container, mix the peaches, maple syrup, and cinnamon. Store everything in the fridge overnight.
  2. In the morning, transfer half of the overnight oat mixture into a parfait glass. Add half of the diced peaches and granola. Add the remaining overnight oat mixture and then top with the remaining peaches and granola. Enjoy!

Can you eat these overnight oats hot?

Yes, you can heat up overnight oats. However, I recommend leaving out the yogurt if you do. You can always stir the yogurt in after microwaving your oats. 

Frequently asked questions for making healthy overnight oats

How do you make these peach overnight oats vegan?

To make this peach overnight oat recipe vegan, simply use a plant-based yogurt in place of the Greek yogurt. I like oat milk-based yogurts best flavor-wise, but any will work. Just choose one that’s free of added sugar. 

Can you make these oats sweeter?

Yes, to add extra sweetness simply add a drizzle of maple syrup. You could also use a vanilla Greek yogurt in place of the plain Greek yogurt. 

How do you make overnight oats less thick?

To make overnight oats less thick, you can replace the greek yogurt with more oat milk or leave out the chia seeds.

Can you leave out the granola? 

Yes! Just note that you’ll lose the crunch-factor as well. If you’re having trouble finding a low-sugar, lower-calorie granola, you can either make your own or use a crunchy puffed cereal instead. 

How long do overnight oats last in the fridge?

Overnight oats will keep for up to 5 days in the fridge. However, the chia seed flavor will get stronger and the granola will soften the longer they’re in the fridge. For this reason, I like to make just two to three days of oats at a time. 

Can you use frozen peaches? 

Thawed frozen peaches will work, but the flavor won’t be quite as good. I don’t recommend canned as they’re often too soft. However, in a pinch you can use canned peaches. Just make sure to buy ones packed in their own juices rather than syrup.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 ripe peach cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 tsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 -1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp almond or vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons low sugar granola I used a vanilla-flavored one, but a cinnamon flavor would work great too!
  • Option to add nut butter or protein powder for extra fat and/or protein can add as topping or stir into oat base

Instructions

  • Place ½ cup oats, 1 tablespoon chia seeds, ¼ cup Greek yogurt, and ½ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk into each mason jar. Stir well (I find a butter knife works best for stirring in mason jars). Set aside.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine bite-sized peach pieces, maple syrup, cinnamon, and almond or vanilla extract (I prefer almond but both taste good in this).
  • Place half of peach mixture on top of oat mixture in mason jars. Cover and let sit overnight.
