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:
- 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

These sound so amazing! I have never made overnight oats before but I definitely need to.
Sarah saysJune 15, 2017 at 7:42 pm
This would be an awesome weekday morning breakfast for my boyfriend. We start our day at 3:30a.m. and I never feel like cooking. He usually heads out the door with cold cereal in his belly, but lately he’s been asking for a hot breakfast. This might do the trick without making me have to get up even earlier.
Jennifer Van Huss saysJune 15, 2017 at 7:54 pm
That looks like a fabulous cookbook! I love overnight oats but have never heard of lemon poppy seed ones! I’m intrigued!

Teresa Organ saysJune 15, 2017 at 8:49 pm
My husband is the one who cooks but I’m not much of a breakfast person. These Skinny Lemon Poppy Seed Overnight Oats looks really good!!
Teresa saysJune 15, 2017 at 9:07 pm
Yummy, I have not been excited for overnight oats in awhile. I can’t wait to try this tomorrow. I even have a new zester.

Lemon poppyseed is one of my favorite flavor combos. I love that you topped the oats with blueberries for added goodness.
Theresa saysJune 15, 2017 at 10:40 pm
My favorite breakfast for the whole family would be cherry turnovers. They are quick and easy, though probably not the healthiest option. The overnight oats sound incredible. I can’t wait to try them!
candy saysJune 15, 2017 at 10:45 pm
We eat a ton of oatmeal around our house. All I need to get are the poppy seeds, I have everything else already which is nice.
Mitch saysJune 15, 2017 at 10:49 pm
What a great and healthy breakfast! And so filling. My son would love all the fruits and oats!
Jen t saysJune 15, 2017 at 11:56 pm
The presentation of these oats is so gorgeous. I love that you you used you used these flavors because it sounds really unique and must pair nice with the blueberries.
Jonna saysJune 16, 2017 at 12:08 am
I love poppyseed anything, so I’m really excited to try this! Thanks for the recipe!
valmg @ Mom Knows It All saysJune 16, 2017 at 12:44 am
I’ve never seen poppy seeds in oatmeal before, mostly only cake. This sounds like it would have an intriguing texture and flavor.
kristin saysJune 16, 2017 at 1:48 am
That sounds really good. I’ve never heard of overnight oats but they sound delicous.

Not only does this sound look, love how pretty you set it up! Yum!
monique s saysJune 16, 2017 at 8:04 am
my favorite breakfast to make in a few minutes is French toast. It is a simple version of it so just a quick dip of bread in eggs but the kids love it and ask for it.
Seattle Travel Blogger saysJune 16, 2017 at 8:06 am
My dad is always looking for ways to spruce up his oatmeal.
I will have to share this recipe with him- I am sure he would love to give it a try.
mycraftingworld saysJune 16, 2017 at 9:34 am
We like just standard oatmeal with a little cream. I would like to try this as something different. My husband has to avoid dairy so I will make it just for me.
Amanda saysJune 16, 2017 at 11:11 am
Oatmeal is such a great and healthy way to start the day, but most times I find that they aren’t flavorful enough. I would love to try your recipe because it looks like the lemon and poppy seeds would provide bright flavor!
Brianne saysJune 16, 2017 at 11:58 am
Overnight oats are my favorite! I will definitely have to make this new flavor!
Toni | Boulder Locavore saysJune 16, 2017 at 2:30 pm
This looks really good! I would love to give this a try!
uprunforlife saysJune 16, 2017 at 3:34 pm
I really need to start making some overnight oats recipes. My kids don’t like eating breakfast in the morning but as a mom, I know how important it is. I also am looking for some different ideas too. Eating healthy is important to me and I am trying to get back into the swing of things.
Oyinkan Ogunleye saysJune 16, 2017 at 3:55 pm
Soooo healthy and good for you & I love blueberries because they kill the free radicals in your body!
Natalie saysJune 16, 2017 at 4:53 pm

Annemarie LeBlanc saysJune 17, 2017 at 9:03 am
My son has prepared a mix for me to make overnight oats but I keep forgetting to pour milk in it. Arrgh. I have to do it tonight. I saw your post and it served as a good reminder. I will try your recipe too. I have to try that lemon-poppy seeds combination. Sounds delicious.
ricci saysJune 17, 2017 at 10:24 pm
Confession- I have never made overnight oats before!! However, I am obsessed with anything lemon flavored so this recipe may be what makes me make some overnight oats…finally!!
Susan P. saysJune 18, 2017 at 1:01 am
I make omelettes for the family with whatever they like to have with the eggs. Diced red peppers, diced ham or bacon, onions, and cheese are some favorites to include.
Kim Avery saysJune 18, 2017 at 4:44 pm
Our quick and easy go to is regular oatmeal with some maple syrup. I’ve always wanted to try overnight oats but have been hesitant.
Mary Songer saysJune 18, 2017 at 4:57 pm
We’ve never tried oatmeal for breakfast. We usually just have cold cereal. Oatmeal would be a healthier option. I’m going to suggest this to my husband and see if we can get a healthier start to our day.
Tina W saysJune 19, 2017 at 3:02 am
My favorite quick breakfast is smoothies. It’s so easy to spend a little time on the weekend prepping fruit for the freezer so you can just grab and dump into the blender in the morning. Easy peasy.
Our Family World saysJune 19, 2017 at 6:37 am
That sounds delicious! Oatmeal and yogurt and fruit! Yum. I have not tried adding poppy seeds in my oatmeal yet, but I think that’s an awesome idea too. I will try this too. It is going to be a nice, filling, healthy breakfast treat for me and my family.
Angela Milnes saysJune 19, 2017 at 6:49 pm
Absolutely sounds a perfect oatmeal and I want to try this too it’s really good for my breakfast

I love a delicious oatmeal! I’ll have to try this sometime. It looks and sounds delicious!
Nancy saysJune 20, 2017 at 7:37 pm
This overnight oats recipe looks easy and delicious. Another breakfast that is quick and easy to make : scrambled eggs with grapefruit halves.
Katherine saysJune 25, 2017 at 1:44 am
Do you eat the oats cold? Or can you heat them up in the next morning?
Jeffrey saysJune 25, 2017 at 8:01 pm
My family loves oatmeal. I make it on the cook top and normally add apples, pecans, raisins, cinnamon, nutmeg and pure maple syrup.
Barrie saysJune 27, 2017 at 8:53 pm
Scrambled eggs and bacon is a family favorite. Not extremely fast but not too bad either.
shannon fowler saysJune 30, 2017 at 3:14 pm
This looks really good! We all kind of do different things for breakfast. I run first thing in the morning so I usually just have an apple and some egg whites.
Marcie W. saysJune 30, 2017 at 4:46 pm
My all time favorite breakfast is my husband’s banana pancakes, but these overnight oats look beyond delicious and like an ideal way to start the day. I can not wait to give them a try!
Edna Williams saysJuly 5, 2017 at 3:03 am
I love Nutella and sliced banana on toast sprinkled with Chia seeds! Quick and healthy is the way to go for me!
