Lemon Curd Overnight Oats

Lemon Curd Overnight Oats

Brighten up your mornings with these lemon curd overnight oats!

With as hot as this summer has been, I’ve been craving light, bright flavors in all my meals – including overnight oats. Instead of my usual peanut butter oats, I’ve been whipping up these peach crisp and strawberries and cream varieties. But then I made a lighter version of lemon curd and what happened next was pure breakfast bliss.

While you could go out and buy lemon curd to add to your overnight oats, I promise you making your own is super easy and quick! All you need is sugar, lemons, butter, and 8 minutes of stove-time. Let the lemon curd chill in the fridge overnight along with your oats. Then in the morning simply put a dollop of lemon curd on your oats and dig in! To make these a little more special, you can layer the oats with lemon curd and some fresh berries – talk about an impressive breakfast for guests ;).

Lemon curd over overnight oats

Speaking of visitors, this past weekend kicked off our guest-filled end of summer. My cousin came out to see our new place, and while we enjoyed showing her our comfy home, we spent most of the time dining out, enjoying fancy cocktails, and hiking. It’s been so nice to finally have a second bedroom for guests to stay in, as I love being able to just hang out in the morning, drinking coffee, and catching up. Next up is Bry’s stepbrother and we are so excited to show him how fun living in Denver itself has become. 

So here’s a toast to a flavorful and bright start to August!
