Overnight Oat Obsession

I used to only eat smoothies for breakfast – okay well that’s not totally true, I used to eat a bagel every day but that was before I became more health conscious. After finding overnight oats, I became a bit obsessed. While I still love my  Peanut Butter & Chocolate and Strawberries and Cream overnight oats, when the weather is warmer (or when I wish the weather was warmer), I like to have a more sun-shiny breakfast.

Sunny Lemon Overnight Oats

What’s sunnier than lemons? Lemons are refreshing and have a bold flavor so I figure it could give people a nice kick in the pants in the morning to get their day started.

These lemon overnight oats are still as filling as my other overnight oats but they seem lighter because of the citrus. They’re perfect for a warm day right out of the fridge to keep you nice and cool.

Lemon Overnight Oat Nutrition Info

The recipe for these lemon overnight oats is very simple. I didn’t want to use too much sugar so I only added a bit of maple syrup to even out the tartness of the lemon.

Chia seeds add fiber and omega-3 fatty acids as well as magnesium and calcium.  Rolled oats are a good source of carbs, protein, dietary fiber, and iron.

  1. These look so good Mary Ellen, they are one of my favs! I usually add protein powder to mine but really it’s all about that fresh light lemon flavor that just screams summer and is like eating lemon pie for breakfast! Thank you again for hosting and also including one of my recipes in your round up this week. I’m thinking Lemon Overnight Oats is going to be breakfast at the soccer field tomorrow morning.
    Hope you have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks Sarah! I hope you like them! That’s a great idea to add protein powder to your overnight oats. I’ll have to try a version like that soon!

      So glad you’ve been linking up with us for Healthy Vegan Fridays!

  2. Yum yum! I never was a lemon fan until I hit my 30s, now I love it. And this looks like a no-fuss way to enjoy it! So summery, too. Plus no cooking when it’s hot out. Huge fan. 🙂

    How’s biochemistry going, by the way? I’m starting a massive review of all things nutritional biochemistry and medical nutrition therapy for my dietetic internship in August, so I’m feeling your pain, lol. 😉

    1. Thanks Lee! Not cooking is such a plus in the summer. 🙂

      I’m done nutritional biochem (for now)! I finished my last test this past weekend. I get a semester off and start up again this winter. Oh wow, that must be a huge undertaking! I hope everything goes well. I don’t envy you!

  3. I feel like if people don’t like lemon, they might be broken haha ;p just kidding!
    “I figure it could give people a nice kick in the pants in the morning.” YES! Perfect. I totally fall back on my chocolate almond butter overnight oats, I really need to switch it up. This sounds great! And more simple than my regular one.
    It’s really gorgeous!
    ps. thanks for sharing at Healthy Vegan Fridays – I’m pinning & sharing!
