Creamy, dreamy and delicious, these overnight oats make the morning so easy.  Just grab and jar and a spoon and hit the road! If you want to serve to guests, you can dress them up with a few more fresh chopped peaches, a drizzle of honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Either way, you’ll be glad you did it!

     You guys, I finally did it!!!  After months and months of yammering on about how I really want to make overnight oatmeal and how I really should make overnight oats and gee whiz if only I could get myself to make some overnight oatmeal… I finally made overnight oatmeal!

    I am not sure if this deserves a gold star and a pat on the back or a kick in the pants and a what the heck took you so long?! Maybe a little of all of it.  No matter what, I am proud of myself!

      The funny thing is overnight oats are really not a new thing to our family.  One of my favorite things to make when I was a wee little one was some porridge type recipe from a kid’s cookbook.

      MiMi swears it was a Pooh Bear book of some sort, I would say it was possibly a Care Bear book.  Apparently it must have had some sort of bears in it.  Either way, we loved the recipe and it was one I could make on my own.

    If memory serves me correctly it used berry yogurt, oatmeal, some fruit juice and possibly a bit of honey.  You mixed it all together and let it sit in the refrigerator over night.

    In the morning you had a big bowl of deliciousness waiting for you! I loved the cool creamy texture that it had.

   I also loved that the oatmeal still had just a bit of texture.  I’ve never liked my oatmeal cooked to mush.

    I prefer it a bit more al dente.  I don’t want it dry, but I do like to have a little something to chew.

    So when you combine my want for a bit of texture with my need to not have too many things to do in the morning, you would think this overnight oats stuff would be a natural fit. If only I could make myself actually do it! 😉

      After spending an entire afternoon scouring my parents’ house for the mystery possible bear related cookbook, we never did find that stinking recipe.  We even did some poking around online trying to use every keyword we could think of and we never found anything that seemed right.  So if you happen to know what book we are looking for or the recipe we loved so much, you would be a lifesaver if you would share!

    With a lack of “THE recipe” I had to forge on with something else.  I have to buy bag after bag of peaches this time of year, I just can’t help it.  But they don’t stay good too long.

    So rather than let them get soft, I use them in everything I can think of.  Of course we love them in baked oatmeal and peach breakfast cakes, but there’s not always time for those.

    So overnight oatmeal is the perfect solution.  As the peaches go out of season, you can swap them out for any fruit or toss in some frozen.  The possibilities are endless!

I need to be better about making big batches of stuff like this on the weekend so I can just grab and go during the week!
