All opinions are 100% mine. I am thankful to Victoria Dwek and Shani Taub, C.D.C., C.N., who wrote the cookbook, “Secrets of Skinny Cooking.” This is where I discovered this mouth-watering recipe for the Skinny Lemon Poppy Seed Overnight Oats!
When I was a kid we ate Oatmeal every morning for breakfast. The whole family would sit around our massive table and spoon it UP. Back then, it was a necessary staple. Now I am older and have my own children sitting around the table. Now it is an affordable and healthy breakfast option for my family.
Nowadays, it can be tough to get a good meal into teenage tummies. My kids have very busy schedules, demanding late nights or early weekend schedules. That is why this recipe for Skinny Lemon Poppy Seed Overnight Oats are perfect for my family. It is not only filling but is heart healthy and the calorie count is just 216.
And, it is so easy to make! Because our mornings can busy and chaotic, we don’t have time for cooking oatmeal from scratch. We knew we had to do something different. Skinny Lemon Poppy Seed Overnight Oats for breakfast was the answer! Serve them to dad this Father’s Day, capped off with these Superhero Mason Jar Lid Coasters.
Everyone knows that oatmeal needs a little something to add flavor, and for us we love using fresh fruit and yogurt! To make this Skinny Lemon Poppy Seed Overnight Oats, you need just a few ingredients. For each individual serving, you need:
- One container of light Vanilla Greek Yogurt
- 1/4 cup fast cooking or old fashioned oats
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- 1 1/2 teaspoons poppy seeds, divided
- 1/2 cup blueberries
In an 8 ounce mason jar or container, combine yogurt, juice, oats, 1 teaspoon of lemon zest and poppy seeds (awesome for development of red blood cells!) Close container and leave overnight in the fridge. In the morning, top with blueberries and remaining lemon zest and enjoy! You can also add granola, nuts or other toppings. Just wait until the morning so they stay nice and crunchy!
