Lemon Bar and Coconut Overnight Oats

Lemon Bar and Coconut Overnight Oats. Oats, Lifeway Kefir, siggi’s coconut skyr, chia seeds, lemon juice, lemon zest and coconut come together in a fiber and protein rich breakfast (or dessert!) that’s tangy, slightly sweet and perfect for spring. Oh. And let’s not forget the topping of more coconut skyr, lemon curd and a sprinkle of coconut.

Lemon Bar and Coconut Overnight Oats via JennySheaRawn.comI don’t know about you, but we are anxiously awaiting spring and sunny days around these parts. You see, it’s been dreary, raining/sleeting/snowing, chilly and just plain miserable the past few weeks. And that’s just the weather. In the past month, our little guy has gone through two boughts of ear infections, one respiratary virus (RSV), one stomach virus and, most recently, the flu. The poor little thing. And his daddy and pregnant mommy have also been lucky enough to catch the stomach virus, sinus infections and just all around nasty colds. This is the worst winter (sickness wise) that I can remember.

Lucca is at the age where everything goes in his mouth, and he’s in daycare where they swap germs on the regular, which is why we’ve seen a new “illness” basically on a weekly basis. We are very lucky though, that we have an otherwise healthy little boy – and, thus far, thank goodness, I’ve had a healthy pregnancy. So, if this is the worst we have to deal with, we can manage.

Lemon Bar and Coconut Overnight Oats via JennySheaRawn.comSooooo, back to these sunny oats. After having the stomach bug last weekend and not eating much at all except Pepperidge Farm goldfish (Lucca has us hooked) and bananas, all I was craving was citrus and mango – lots of mango. I was eating frozen mango by the bowlful because it was juicy, sweet, refreshing and cheery.  And citrus, especially lemon, anything and everything sounded good. So, these tart and sweet Lemon Bar and Coconut Overnight Oats were born. And, they are even tastier than they look. And packed with immune supporting Vitamin C.

Lemon Bar and Coconut Overnight Oats via JennySheaRawn.comThese Lemon Bar and Coconut Overnight Oats reminds me of a good old fashioned lemon bar. Except these oats are far better for you, more filling and more satisfying. If you’re looking for a fresh and bright spin on your current breakfast, give these oats a try.

Lemon Bar and Coconut Overnight Oats via JennySheaRawn.comHere’s to spring, warmer temps, fresh air and sunny days. And to wiping away those winter germs.

    I’m so sorry your household has been filled with germs, and you’ve all been sick! I’m finally getting over a nasty cold, and before that, I feel like I’ve been sick a lot more than usual this winter. My son had RSV and pneumonia when he was 1 1/2-so scary when your little one gets so sick! Here’s to sunnier days ahead for you and your family.! These oats look AMAZING-I can’t wait to make them, sick, or not 🙂

      @EA, awww thanks so much! We are finally on the mend … it’s been a tough month. So scary when the little ones are so sick; it’s the worst. Cheers to sunnier days and thanks for the sweet words.

    Just shared the GORGEOUS recipe – on the ReDux FB page – and now I’m making for breakfast. I have all the ingredients. I won’t let set overnight – but I’m sure it’ll still be delish! I need an immunity boost.

    • Jenny Rawn April 17, 2017, 11:18 am

      @Serena, thanks so much!! We have been LOVING this recipe. LMK if you like it. It’s definitely better after being left overnight – the lemon flavor is stronger – but is still good if eaten right away. Uhoh – hope you’re not getting sick – if so, feel better soon!

    What is siggi’s coconut? This sounds amazing.

    • Jenny Rawn November 14, 2017, 3:34 pm

      @Kirsten – it’s an Icelandic yogurt – you can find it in your dairy section! If they don’t carry it, request it from the store manager.

    • Jenny Rawn November 20, 2017, 3:08 pm

      @Kirsten, it’s icelandic yogurt – you can find it in the yogurt section of your supermarket.

  • Mary November 15, 2017, 8:39 pm

    What is kefir

    • Jenny Rawn November 20, 2017, 3:07 pm

      @Mary, kefir is a fermented milk drink – tastes much like yogurt but thinner. Tart and slightly bubbly. You can find it in the dairy section of your supermarket.
