This creamy and delicious recipe for Peach Cobbler Overnight Oats is so easy to make! Perfect for any low-glycemic diet, these healthy cups are perfect for breakfast or a snack. Since you prep them ahead of time, you’ll love this breakfast for busy mornings!
Are you looking for a healthy breakfast that tastes good too?
One that has all the flavors of your favorite fruit cobbler?
Something you can make ahead and literally grab and go?
Then have I got a recipe for you!
Peach season is in full swing around here, and I’m looking for every way possible to enjoy them.
Overnight oats is one of my favorite breakfasts, so I had to try them with some chopped peaches.
Plus some cinnamon and a sprinkle of nutmeg.
I’ve seen lots of overnight oats recipes that are loaded with carbs from the sweeteners and dairy ingredients. Some of them have almost 90 grams of carbohydrates per serving!
All those carbs will cause your blood sugar to spike and then you’ll feel a crash in your energy.
That’s why I prefer making my overnight oats with almond milk and a low-carb sweetener. Nonfat Greek yogurt adds some protein, plus a creamy texture.
Each cup of this has 12 grams of protein, 4 grams of fat, and 37 net carbs.
If you want more protein, you can add some collagen to the oats mixture, or stir a scoop into your coffee or tea.

What Makes Overnight Oats Healthier?
Did you know that soaking oats actually makes this healthy meal even better for you?
The soaking takes the place of cooking your oats, and something kind of magical happens during the soaking.
Soaking the oats overnight breaks down the starches and reduces the natural phytic acid in the oats.
Why does this matter?
The process makes it easier for your body to digest the oats and use their nutrients more efficiently!
Cold soaked oats also contain increased resistant starch, a healthy carb that has been shown to aid in weight loss and helps you feel fuller longer.
Resistant starch also helps reduce spikes in your insulin levels, making overnight oats a very healthy option if you have diabetes.
Another benefit to soaking the oats is they begin to ferment. Fermentation helps healthy bacteria form that are good for your gut and colon health.
You’ll want the oats to soak for at least 8 hours, so whip up a batch before bed and they’ll be perfect in the morning.
The texture of overnight oats is different from cooked oats, and it took me a few times of trying them to really like them, but now?
I prefer my soaked oats recipes over the cooked ones!
Do You Eat Overnight Oats Hot or Cold?
There’s no right answer here!
If you want to warm them up, go ahead and warm them up (just be sure the container you use is microwave-safe).
If you don’t like them straight from the fridge, try sitting them on the counter for 15-30 minutes to take the chill off.
Personally, I’m a grab them from the fridge and dig in kinda person.
What Ingredients Do I Need to Make Peach Cobbler Overnight Oats?
Rolled Oats: A great source of healthy carbs and fiber plus some high-quality protein for good measure. They’re also high in antioxidants. Basically, they’re a super food! Use the old-fashioned kind, not the instant or quick cook variety.
Unsweetened Almond Milk: It’s low in sugar and carbohydrates, especially compared to cow’s milk and is low on the glycemic index so it won’t spike your blood sugar.
Plain Nonfat Greek Yogurt: My favorite kind is Fage because it’s the thickest and richest yogurt I’ve ever tried! Packed with protein, it will help you to feel full longer.
Swerve Confectioners (or another powdered low carb sweetener): Plain yogurt is a little tangy by itself, so add some sweetener so it doesn’t taste like sour cream… I prefer using powdered sweetener so it dissolves better without any grittiness.
Vanilla Extract: Did you know you can make your own vanilla extract with vanilla beans? Did you know it’s rich in vanillin and even has some antioxidant benefits? Plus it tastes amazing!
Fresh Peaches: Peaches are the main attraction of this recipe. This sweet and juicy fruit contains vitamins A and C plus potassium. They also have both soluble and insoluble fiber which can help stabilize blood sugar and lower blood pressure. You can learn more about the other health benefits of this delicious fruit here.
Ground Cinnamon: Cinnamon adds delicious fresh-baked flavor while serving up a side of antioxidants and a variety of other health benefits.
The Easiest Way to Make Overnight Oats
The easiest way to make overnight oats when you’re making a recipe with more than one serving is to mix all the oats ingredients together in a big bowl.
I combine the oats, Greek yogurt, unsweetened almond milk, sweetener, vanilla, and any spices and mix them together until the mixture doesn’t have any lumps.
Then I layer the jars.
Some recipes I’ve tried have all the fruit on top.
This is great for those first few bites, and it looks pretty in the pictures, but I want fruit in every spoonful.
Place half the chopped peaches in the bottom of the airtight containers.
Now, divide the oat mixture over top.
You can measure it if you want to be precise, but I just eyeball it.
It’s easy enough to scoop a little out to even the portions out.
Now top the oats mixture with the other half of the chopped peaches.
I like to sprinkle a little extra cinnamon on top.
If you aren’t concerned with separating your fuels, you can add a little bit of granola, some chopped nuts, or your favorite seeds on top too.
How Do You Store Overnight Oats?
Overnight oats need to soak for at least 8 hours before eating to get the full benefits of soaked oats.
The easiest way to store them is with a container that has a lid.
But if you need a container that has a better seal, these jars have screw top lids but they still have a spoon attached to the side.
Or you can always use a canning jar!
Because of the dairy ingredients in this peach cobbler overnight oats recipe, you’ll need to store your individual containers in the refrigerator.
How Long Do Overnight Oats Last?
Some people say overnight oats should be eaten within three days, but I think it depends on the fruit that you use.
Some fruits don’t hold up well (I’m looking at you, bananas and raspberries), while others do just fine.
The longest I’ve had overnight oats last in my fridge is 7 days, and by the seventh day they were a little more fermented…
I recommend planning on them lasting about 5 days.
