Peach Poppy Seed Overnight Oatmeal

I know. . . I’ve been pumping out a lot of “fancy” recipes lately. Everything involves blenders or fancy equipment or annoying cooking techniques or expensive ingredients.

But this one’s simple. Super simple.

The beauty behind a recipe like this is that you can top it with anything. Sure, I kept it basic for the photoshoot, but a humble peach + poppy seed base allows for a multitude of unique toppings. So often I resort to my banana base, but here is another base that is equally adaptive.

Pistachio butter? Do it! Sliced banana? You know I approve that. Kiwifruit? Pomegranate? Sliced mango? Yes to all.

I topped mine with figs, almond butter, and freshly toasted almonds. Simple, simple, simple. But so delicious.

Finally . . . this is awkward, but I could use your help. If you feel inclined, I really need help financing my grad school. Here’s how you can help me…

Prep Time: 10 minutes

What you'll need:

  • 1 yellow peach, quartered and stone removed (peeling optional)

How to make it:

  1. Combine peach, milk, extract, and chia seeds in a blender or food processor. Let sit for 5-10 minutes to let the chia seeds soften.

    Oooh, I love poppy seeds! I don’t know what it is about those little seeds, but add them to a simple oatmeal recipe, and it seems so much more fancy and decadent! The little crunch they provide is also a pleasant change from the normally smooth and creamy texture of oatmeal. My favorite way to enjoy them is in your Lemon Poppy Seed Baked Oatmeal, yum!
