Top tips

  • Overnight oats are best made with old fashioned rolled oats. Quick cook oats and steel cut oats just don't get the right consistency.
  • Want more lemon flavor? Add some lemon juice along with the other ingredients!
  • Serve lemon curd overnight oats cold straight from the fridge, or warm it up in the microwave for 20-30 seconds if you prefer.


Leftover lemon curd overnight oats can be stored up to 5 days in an airtight container or mason jar in the fridge.
