Blueberry lemon zest overnight oats is the perfect on-the-go breakfast recipe: filling, delicious, and ready for you when you wake up! ~Blueberries, oats, Greek yogurt, honey, lemon zest~
Can I just say… holy blueberry and lemon. What is this beautifully delicious combination that you and I both need more of in our lives?? Just think of the last time you had something blueberry and lemon flavored (hopefully not never). Okay, now remember how awesome that experience was. We’re taking all of that awesome and putting it into a healthy, high protein breakfast recipe that cooks itself overnight in the fridge. Oh, P.S. It’s incredibly tasty. Wait, what?
Don’t get me wrong, I love love LOVE to cook, but I’m all about finding delicious recipes that are ready for me when I wake up or when I get home from work. Basically that boils down to either slow cooker recipes or recipes that ‘cook’ themselves in the fridge, like overnight oats. I first became a fan of overnight oats a few summers ago when it was super hot out, and I wanted some cooler breakfast options that wouldn’t wake up my roommates at the time (fact: blenders are loud). It was also the summer of my first-ever internship (and a 30-minute bicycle commute to work), so anyone who gave me morning time saving tips had me all like BLESS YOUR SOUL. Lo and behold, one day as I perused Pinterest, I spotted this shiny new idea called overnight oats.
