Healthy Lemon Pie Overnight Oats

Healthy Lemon Pie Overnight Oats

Healthy lemon pie overnight oats will brighten up your mornings! Made with a simple homemade lemon curd, they’re also perfect for meal prep.

Healthier lemon pie overnight oats are pure bliss

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.

Homemade lemon curd is easier to make than you might think

While you could go out and buy lemon curd to add to your overnight oats, I promise you making your own is super easy!

Let me prove it to you:

  • 3 simple ingredients: sugar (or honey), lemons, butter
  • 8-minutes of cook-time
  • Fridge overnight

To make these healthy lemon pie overnight oats even easier, you can chill the lemon curd 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 ;).

What you need to make healthy lemon pie overnight oats

  • Rolled oats
  • Chia seeds
  • Plain greek yogurt (the higher the fat, the creamier your oats will be)
  • Unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • Homemade lemon curd

How to adjust the texture of your overnight oats

I like my overnight oats to be nice and thick. While I love that doughy consistency, I know others may find it too thick.

If you like your oats on the thinner side there are some easy adjustments:

  • Add two or three extra tablespoons of milk either during mixing or the next day
  • Cut the amount of Greek yogurt in half, or skip it altogether – although doing so will greatly decrease the amount of protein
  • Leave out the chia seeds
