These Apricot Pistachio Overnight Oats with Pistachios make an easy breakfast prepped in minutes. It’s the perfect grab and go breakfast!
Overnight oats are a fast and easy breakfast. But what goes into overnight oats? On a basic level, overnight oats include oats, some liquid (either milk, kefir, yogurt, or even water), fruit and an optional sweetener. I like to use seasonal fruit to sweeten things up and keep it interesting.Apricot Overnight Oats with Pistachios make an easy breakfast that's prepped in minutes.
Ingredients for overnight oats
For these apricot pistachio overnight oats, you only need oats, fresh apricots, chopped pistachios, and your favorite milk. Honey or another sweetener is optional – based on your flavor preferences.
How to make apricot overnight oats
Get individual jars or storage bowls with lids. Chop the apricots and pistachios and shake up your milk.
Now you’re ready to assemble the overnight oats. Because fruits like apricots, peaches, pears, and of course bananas tend to turn brown, I like to add them near the bottom of the jar to help keep them from browning too much.
Add a couple of layers of oats and apricots. Pour the milk in to just cover the oats. And how much milk you add is entirely up to you.
Remember that the oats will absorb the liquid. How much milk you add beyond that depends on your preference for more stiff oats versus looser ones.
Sprinkle the pistachios over the top to maintain more crunch. Now, is an excellent time to add a drizzle of maple syrup or honey too.
Once it’s all in the jar, seal it and store overnight in the refrigerator.
How to store overnight oats
I like to make 2-3 individual portions on a Sunday to grab and go through the week. If you are going longer than three days, you might consider adding the milk and fruit the night before so that the mixture doesn’t get too mushy.
