Creamy Lemon and Herb Overnight Oats

Creamy Lemon and Herb Overnight Oats

These invigorating Lemon and Herb Overnight Oats will definitely perk up your mornings.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Not because it provides us with energy and essential nutrients we need, but because of Breakfast Club! It’s an event that I look forward to the most each month. I’m not going to go into too much detail just yet, but I will say it’s the best way to stay connected to the ones you love but maybe don’t get to see too often. The date of the next Breakfast Club has been set and it’s at our house so keep an eye out in early September when I post about it, I will introduce you to the conception, club members and recipe ideas.

Breakfast club makes me look for interesting and new recipes. I know overnight oats are not new or different however these are divine, the addition of aromatic herbs transforms the creamy lemon oats into a decadent breakfast.
