Peach Pie Overnight Oats

This is a healthy filling breakfast to start your day off right!  Letting this set overnight really thickens up the oats and makes it very filling.  I used fresh peaches and that made this taste amazing!  I mixed some peeled and diced peaches into the mixture and added some extra to the top.  Super yummy!  I recently bought some chia seeds and started using them the first time.  Chia seed are loaded with fiber and protein making them a great addition to this healthy breakfast.  Hope you enjoy!

2 peaches, peeled and diced
2 Tablespoons maple syrup
1Tablespoon chia seeds
