Right now I'm trying to make the most of peaches as their season is slowly winding towards its end. Especially come September, much of the peaches you can find at the markets are ripe and juicy--in some cases, verging on overripe. Not to fear! These almost overripe jewels are perfect for this Peaches & Cream Overnight Porridge because their juices mingle with the yogurt and milk creating a decadent treat for your breakfast. The chia seeds and almond meal add an extra vitamin boost. Like my Tropical Breakfast Quinoa or my Tulsi-rose Breakfast Quinoa, this dish translates well into a breakfast mason jar meal. In fact, I often prepare this porridge by serving it up in my mason jars straight from the fridge.
What makes this dish so simple--easier even than my quinoa recipes--is that you simply stir all the ingredients together and let them sit overnight in your fridge. Then the next morning, you have a perfect jar of oats ready and waiting for you. I especially love this meal when I find myself strapped for time come Sunday and can't linger in the kitchen as I prepare my weekly breakfast and lunch.
1 cup multi-grain oats
2 tablespoons chia seeds
2 tablespoons almond meal
2 tablespoons flax seed meal
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
3 tablespoons maple syrup or honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup milk
1 cup Greek yogurt
4 peaches, chopped
Mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl, mix together all the wet ingredients until combined. Then begin to add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients slowly, until thoroughly mixed. Finally, stir in peach chunks. Divide mixture evenly between 4 mason jars and let sit overnight in fridge. Makes 4 servings. Enjoy!
