Lemon Honey Overnight Oats

Clear jar of lemon honey overnight oatmeal with a spoon

Lemon and honey overnight oats are a refreshing twist on your usual oatmeal. Spend five minutes putting this together at night and have a healthy breakfast waiting for you in the morning! Also, if you think lemon and oatmeal sounds weird, well I assure you it’s not, but if that’s not enough convincing just think about how weird can be awesome. I’m kind of weird and you took a chance on me, so take a chance on the overnight oats – they will not disappoint.



1 ¾ C nut milk of your choice (don’t use dairy milk – it will curdle)
3 T honey
1 tsp lemon zest
Juice of 1 lemon
½ tsp kosher salt
2 T chia seeds
1 C rolled oats (not the quick cooking kind)


In a medium bowl, whisk together nut milk, honey, lemon zest, lemon juice, and salt until honey has dissolved.

Add chia seeds and oats and stir to combine.

Cover and refrigerate overnight.

In the morning, stir to combine and top with fruit, granola, more honey etc.


A word to the wise though – don’t use dairy milk, as dairy plus citrus is not a good look.
