Lemon poppyseed is one of my favorite combos so I figured it was about time to put it in an overnight oat flavor to share with you! This one may be a new favorite over here! It’s perfect this time of year too because it’s refreshing and it’s just enough of lemony flavor. These Lemon Poppyseed Overnight Oats come together in less than 10 minutes and are perfect for meal prep!
It’s easy to get sick of the same breakfast! That’s why I like to switch it up with different sweet and savory options like these Lemon Poppyseed Overnight Oats. Spring weather means all the light, lemony flavors and this is just one way to add it in. If you love lemon or lemon poppyseed then you’ll love these overnight oats!
One reason why I love overnight oats is how versatile they are! There are so many ways to make them and all different flavors to switch it up each week. If you haven’t already tried them, the Carrot Cake Overnight Oats are another spring time overnight oat favorite. They are great to keep in the fridge for an easy breakfast during the week too. Overnight oats can be prepped at the beginning of the week and then easily grab and go in the mornings.

How long are overnights oats good in the fridge for?
Overnight oats are best after 3-4 days of making them! Be sure to only add the toppings when you’re ready to enjoy them. If you’re storing them for a few days, it’s best they are in a sealed container.
Can I heat up my overnight oats?
Yes. If you don’t like your overnight oats cold, they can be heated up too. I recommend adding more almond milk when you go to heat them since they are already thick after sitting in the fridge overnight.
Can I make these dairy free?
Yes. If you want to make these dairy free, you can leave out the yogurt. I love adding in yogurt to overnight oats to make it extra creamy but it can be omitted to make these dairy free.
