My favourite Peach Melba Crumble Overnight Oats recipe is one of my favourite wholesome, easy, on the go breakfast option for the morning!
A lot of people think that working as an entrepreneur means that I have a lackadaisical schedule. As if I just get to sit around sipping fancy latte’s all morning scrolling through my colourful Instagram feed. Yeah… Not so much.
Being a TV expert and entrepreneur means I get up EARLY (like, sometimes 4 AM early) and rarely have time to sit down to a leisurely morning meal. I need to be super organized the night before or else I’m usually found running on caffeine until noon. That’s why overnight oats are my perfect morning solution and my Peach Melba Crumble Overnight Oats are my new BFFs.
Busy Friends… You Need Overnight Oats in Your Life
You know I’ve got a bunch of overnight oats recipes on my blog (like these babies), and honestly, it’s for good reason. Overnight oats are a portable, grab and go choice for hectic mornings that guarantee #OvernightSuccess. They’re also super customizable so it’s easy to add in whatever bits of fruit, nuts, seeds, or dried fruit I’ve got hanging out around the house to add lots of contrasting flavours and textures.
I always make my overnight oats with Quaker Rolled Oats which hold up nicely overnight, making them perfect for make ahead meals.
Why Peach Melba Crumble Overnight Oats?
While Overnight Oats are super versatile, these Peach Melba Crumble Overnight Oats are currently my go-to combination. They were inspired by my chat with Kortney Wilson, the Canadian co-star of Masters of Flip on HGTV. With such a busy schedule flipping homes, making music, shooting her hit TV series with her hubby, and of course, being a mom, it’s no wonder Kortney is always looking for fast breakfast solutions.
I caught up with this busy mom of three where she filled me in on how important versatile and quick morning meals like Overnight Oats is to her family. With three children, all with different palates and preferences, she likes to set out a variety of nourishing ingredients and let her kids choose their favourite toppings and add-ins. This gives the kids some autonomy and control over what they’re eating so they’re far more likely to actually eat it, but it still keeps her in control of the quality of the ingredients she uses (like Quaker oats, yogurt, nuts and fruit). The end result? Regardless of what the kids choose, they’ll be getting a wholesome meal that they actually want to eat.
As for those preferences, her oldest son is a big fan of berries and maple, her middle son loves raisins, and the youngest adores the combination of peaches and raspberries. Having lived in the South for quite some time, Kortney agreed that she adores a good Southern peach, especially with fresh raspberries. She also said she’s a huge fan of crisps, crumbles and other oat-topped pies, so my mind immediately went to these Peach Melba Crumble Overnight Oats. I think we were both pretty happy with the result.
The sweet and tangy combination of bright raspberries and juicy peaches, with a creamy Quaker oat base and a crunchy Quaker granola topping, instantly became a favourite part of breakfast in my home too.
