Peach Melba Overnight Oats

Peach Melba Oats 2

I ate oatmeal every day for 10 years straight in a row from the time I was in high school to a few years back.  It was my go to meal every morning, I loved it and I never tired of it.  Adding in goodies sometimes like peanut butter or fruit.  It always tasted good and comforting to me and I looked forward to it.  It got me through my workouts and races fueling me good without me feeling heavy.  I took a break from it a few years back when I was eating totally raw, swapping it for chia porridge or sprouted buckwheat, but now I am back to it again for the most part.  It is economical which is important to me since I am on a budget, it fills me up and is easy to make.  Surprisingly though, I have never until this past week tried overnight oats!

I have been drooling over recipes for them just about forever so it was about time I did. I see people making all these delicious creative combinations that would make me really exited for breakfast so I had to make some of my own.  I went simple this time and used ingredients I had on hand.  Peach Melba Oats was what resulted.  I had peaches and raspberries and I love the combination and couldn't think of anything more delicious in oatmeal at that point, so I went for it. I used steel cut oats because I like a little more texture to mine but you can feel free to use raw rolled oats if you want it raw or just regular rolled oats if you like it smoother.

I added in a touch of cinnamon and used some of my home made coconut milk, and added in some chia seeds for extra protein and healthy omega 3 oils.  What resulted was pure delicious goodness.  Probably the most tasty bowl of oatmeal I have had since I usually go pretty plain with it.  The best part was, it was all ready to go for me.  Just grab and eat, no cooking required which is important when I am in a hurry in the morning before work.  I will definitely be making more overnight oats in the future!

    I love oats too. And I always think overnight oats are a great idea, but never get around to making them at night. I'm going to give these a try.

      Awesome! If you are doing the rolled oats, I find that an hour is enough for them to soak so if you forget to do it the night before you can still have them :)!
