Raspberry Lemon Breakfast Jar / Giveaway

Hello, hello!

Today is a busy Saturday, so I am not going to go on and on like I normally do, I’m going to cut through the chase and get right to it.   What I have for you today is a fabulous, yummy,  dessert like breakfast  and a giveaway!   Fun stuff on this Saturday morning!!! Raspberry Lemon Breakfast Jar Today’s recipe is another one of my famous breakfast jars.  I haven’t made a different breakfast jar since my first one of a year ago.  I tend to stick to the same kind, but not today!   I do have to tell you I really, really love breakfast jars!  They are filling, easy to make and of so good!  Plus you can eat it right away or seal it up and take it with you!!  I normally take it to work with me!  I have also taken them to the Farmers Market and sit in the park and eat it, while I debate on what to buy and what I am going to make.  Normally I know I am going to need more berries!!Raspberry Lemon Breakfast Jar This breakfast jar is not my normal, of course it still has good for you overnight oats but it’s also flavored with lemon pie filling and fresh raspberries.  It’s amazing!  It’s like eating a meringue pie for breakfast!!  The texture is creamy, rich and perfect for filling you up when you know you are going to have a late lunch. Raspberry Lemon Breakfast Jar For the Lemon Pie filling I used Lucky Leaf Lemon Pie filling!  This stuff is so thick and creamy and one spoonful and you think you are eating lemon custard.  I am loving the pie filling.  When my Husband saw the can of Lucky leaf Pie Filling he immediately requested that I make him a lemon meringue pie.  Maybe, well see!  Since raspberries are in season, I thought they would be a great match with lemon, but if you’re not a raspberry fan, blueberries and lemon is another amazing combination!!! Raspberry Lemon Breakfast Jar If you never had overnight oats, you should really make them.  The oats turn out thicker and creamy!  Plus I like to add a pinch of chia seeds to thicken it up more and vanilla extract to give it some more flavor.  Oh and I almost forgot I also added a pinch of stevia to it!!  To make it, all you have to do is add all the ingredients and let it sit overnight in the fridge.  Then in the morning you just layer your mason jar or bowl.  Then eat and be prepared to let your taste buds go wild.

Lucky Leaf summer reader giveaway (3)

Well my Friends, today, I’m hoping to make it to the beach.  I haven’t gone in over a year.  Crossing my fingers it’s nice.  It maybe hot at my house, but near the ocean it’s always cold.  I’ll be sure to Instagram some photos if I go.  Plus I will be bringing my Breakfast Jar Parfait with me!

Raspberry Lemon Breakfast Jar

  1. I love cherry pie! The crust and filling combination justs pops in your mouth for a sweet satisfying bite!

  2. My favorite pie (and dessert) of all time would have to be pumpkin pie. The sweet custard like pumpkin filling, on a warm crunchy crust, simply amazing.

  3. My favorite kind of pie is pineapple rhubarb. Not many people have even heard of it but my grandma has always made it and it is delicious!

  4. I am a new follower on pinterest. In fact this recipe is what brought me to your site. I pinned this and am sure I will find more to pin! Can’t wait to try this. I’m not a big fan of raspberries – the seeds bother me. I think I might try this with blueberries. Question: what type of oats do you use? Quick, regular, or steel cut? Thanks!

    • Hi Molly!!! I use regular oats for my jars. In this recipe I used Trader Joe’s Rolled Oats. I never tried it with quick oats, so I am not sure and steal cut oats won’t work well. I think I tried it a long time ago and the texture wasn’t creamy. The blueberries would be amazing in the recipe!!! :)

  5. Wow! This is a recipe I will be making! It sounds wonderful. I love many kinds of pie: lemon, peach, rhubarb, Dutch apple. But my all time favorite is gooseberry. I know it’s weird, but I’ve just always loved that flavor.

  6. My favorite pie is sour cherry – or pumpkin – or lemon meringue. heehee. I like pie.

  7. Blueberry pie is my favorite (blueberry anything, really). I followed you on Pinterest and repinned this breakfast jar!

  8. Lemon Meringue is my favorite pie.
    I follow Lucky Leaf and Peanut Butter on Pinterest and I repinned your banana split recipe :)

  9. My Mom’s blueberry pie with fresh blueberries from the garden, reminds me of summer days growing up!
