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 my family to eat a nutritious breakfast. We have very busy schedules and demanding late nights. That is why this recipe for Skinny Lemon Poppy Seed Overnight Oats is perfect for my family.
It is not only filling but is heart healthy and the calorie count is just 216. Now that is a recipe I can get excited about making AND eating!
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:
