Ripe, juicy peaches give this classic bowl of overnight oats a fun and flavorful summer makeover.
Overnight oats are a favorite here at my house. My husband goes crazy for them. Whenever I tell him overnight oats are for breakfast he squeals like a little girl with excitement.
I kid you not.
I’m not complaining. They’re one of my favorites, too.
For one thing, they’re super easy to prepare and I can prepare in bulk to get us through the week.
PLUS, the kid loves them too. Considering my child will only eat about three things these days, this makes me very very happy.
Anywho, these overnight oats have been kicked up a notch with PEACHES! You guys, I am all about the peaches right now and peaches plus oats are a pretty magical combo.
