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!!! 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!! 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. 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!!! 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.

The night before making in a small container, add oatmeal, milk, 2 tablespoons greek yogurt, chia seeds, vanilla extract and stevia. Mix well, cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours or longer.
The next day in a jar or bowl, layer, by adding ¼ cup greek yogurt, then 2 tablespoons of Lemon Pie Filling and top with a ¼ cup raspberries. Add your oatmeal. Top oatmeal with remaining yogurt, 1 tablespoon of lemon pie filling and top with remaining raspberries.

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!
Sorry I didn’t post this weeks weekly recap, I thought doing a giveaway would be more fun!!! Stay tuned tomorrow for another fun jar recipe.
