These peach overnight oats taste like peach pie! Loaded with fresh, juicy peaches and warm spices, this combo is packed with flavor and nutrition.

It’s overnight oats season! I love all oatmeal seasons but overnight oats have a special place in my heart. My mouth is watering just thinking about these peach pie overnight oats.

I only buy peaches in the summer (usually July or August) because I know they just won’t be any good any other season (at least in Richmond). Is there anything better than a fresh, ripe, juicy peach? No, no there isn’t.

Ingredients Needed for Peach Pie Overnight Oats

  • old fashioned rolled oats – rolled oats are the best for overnight oats. Instant/quick oats and steel cut oats don’t work.
  • milk – I like using unsweetened vanilla almond milk, but any type of milk will work.
  • maple syrup – pure maple syrup is the perfect natural sweetener to use because it’s liquid so it blends in nicely with the oat mixture and I personally love the flavor. Honey or another natural liquid sweetener will work here.
  • chia seeds – these little seeds add a bit of fiber, protein and omega-3 fatty acids and they help absorb some of the liquid which gives the oats a thicker consistency
  • vanilla extract – this isn’t must-have, but adds a nice boost of flavor.
  • ground cinnamon and ground ginger – adds a touch of spice!
  • fresh peaches – you can’t have peach pie without fresh peaches!

How Long Do Overnight Oats Need to Soak?

Given the name, you’d assume overnight oats need to soak overnight, but you can actually make them in 2-4 hours if you’re in a rush. While it does take some time for the oats to absorb the liquid, they don’t necessarily have to be soaked overnight.

I recommend at least 8 hours for true overnight oats, but there have been mornings where I decide I want overnight oats for breakfast even though I didn’t prep them the night before. When this happens I’ll make them the morning of and let the oats soak for just 2-4 hours. With this quick soak, they’re not as soft as overnight oats that have soaked longer and they’re a bit more liquidy, but they’re still delicious.

Can You Eat Overnight Oats Hot?

Short answer, yes! You can definitely warm up overnight oats, but the whole point of overnight oats is to eat them cold like muesli. Even if you think cold oats sound strange, I recommend giving it shot before you write them off. Of course, if you simply can’t do the cold oats you can always heat them up. Just pop the overnights oats in your microwave, cooking in 30 second increments until the oats are warm throughout and enjoy.

How Long Do Overnight Oats Last?

When stored in an airtight container in the fridge overnight oats should last for up to 5 days. They will soften more the longer they sit so I find they’re best on days 1-3, but they’re still safe to eat on days 4 and 5. With this said, overnight oats are great for meal prep. Feel free to make a whole batch for the week on Sunday. I like prepping them in wide mouth 16 oz mason jars.

    This was AMAZING! Thank you so much for your recipe! I used nectarines because I didn’t have peaches but I can’t wait to try the peaches. Is it really only 23 cal though? 😮

    1. Oops, it should be 230 calories, not 23. 🙂 Sorry about that, just updated the post. Thanks for catching that, Hillary.

  2. Peaches are easily found fresh during the Summer season. Is it possible to use frozen fruit in these during the remainder of the year?

  3. 5 stars
    First overnight oats I’ve ever made, and what a game changer. I used frozen peaches as that is what I had on hand, and omitted the chia seeds as I did not have any. If greek yogurt is added to this, would it act as a thickener?

    1. So glad you loved this recipe, Sharon! The Greek yogurt does add a little more thickness and creaminess to the oats.

  4. 5 stars
    This recipe got me hooked on overnight oats. It is SO good. I can’t wait until peaches are back in season so I can make it again!

  5. 5 stars
    We can’t get peaches in the Philippines, so I used mangoes. So good! The husband loved it too.

  6. Made this prior to seeing this recipe. The addition of cinnamon, ginger and pecans take it up to an 11!

    1. Woo!! So glad you both have been enjoying these overnight oats! Thanks for the review, Julia! I really appreciate it 🙂

    1. Oh no! So sorry to hear that the pop ups made it difficult for you to view the recipe. Were you not able to x out of the ads? And were you trying to view the recipe on your phone or computer?

    I’m here to confirm that this DOES taste like peach pie! SO Good! I wasn’t sure about the ginger, but added it anyway. The recipe as written is divine. I added some toasted pecans on top the next morning. Who said you can’t have pie for breakfast?!

    1. YUM! I am so glad you gave this recipe a try and are loving it, Jennifer. Such a healthy treat for breakfast. Thank you for sharing your review & star rating, it means so much to me!
