Fresh summer peaches, warm cinnamon and sweet honey are the perfect combination of flavors in these Cinnamon Honey Peach Overnight Oats!
It looks like we’re finally going to get a little break from all the 90+ degree days we’ve been having here. I usually don’t mind them, but I feel like with the exception of a few days we haven’t had a break all month. On top of that we’ve had very little rain even though the humidity has increased. When I say the humidity has increased, that means we actually have some. Colorado has a very dry climate.
On my morning runs I’ve really been noticing the humidity. In general I don’t sweat very much when I’m working out, but lately I’ve been coming home dripping. It was especially bad last Saturday, to the point where I was even starting to smell myself near the end of my long run….so gross. After downing what felt like a gallon of water, I couldn’t get into the shower fast enough to get that sticky, stinky sweat off of me. I’m pretty sure I washed a dozen small bugs off as well.
I seem to forget about all other fruit once the Colorado peaches hit the stores. I can’t help it though, they are truly that good! I’ve actually become quite the peach snob and if it’s not from Colorado it’s not worth eating. I had one from California earlier this summer, emphasis on ONE. Sorry California, you win at the berry game, but your peaches can’t compete with Colorado.
I managed to save one to use in these Cinnamon Honey Peach Overnight Oats and I’m really glad I did. There’s something about the flavor combination that tastes so good! You feel like you’re eating something that should be served for dessert, which you totally could by the way, but all the ingredients in these overnight oats are breakfast approved.
The recipe makes two jars of overnight oats, so that’s two breakfasts, snacks or desserts you don’t have to worry about making for the week. And what’s better than waking up in the morning and having your breakfast waiting for you. Enjoy!
