Lemon Curd Overnight Oats

Welcome to yet another overnight oats blog post from me. Don't expect them to stop any time soon. I preach overnight oats to everyone. It's so easy to prepare enough for the week on a Sunday afternoon for an easy and nutritious grab-and-go breakfast on busy weekdays when I'm running to work. You can have a healthy breakfast in the morning. No excuse.

Anyway, you may have seen my series of posts earlier this week following the lovely Honey Cake with Lemon Curd & Lemon Meringue Buttercream I made for our Easter banquet. It was divine. I you're trying this recipe I'm going to assume you like lemon, in which case I'm telling you to go check out that cake recipe.

I whipped together some healthy Lemon Curd as a part of that cake recipe to go in between the layers.  It was delicious. And I didn't end up needing all of it for the cake. Which left me wondering about creative ways I could use the leftovers. Obviously overnight oats popped into my mind. So here it is. Lemon Curd Overnight Oats.
