Lemon Cranberry Overnight Oats

 

It’s a beautiful and sunny day here, which is making me hope that spring will come early. With this nice sunny weather, even though we still have snow, it made me want to eat something a bit more summery tasting. I love lemon, and I have a new love for cranberries, so I combined them into these delicious overnight oats!

I started off by making the cranberry sauce for the cranberry oats. The smell while it’s cooking is amazing! Cook the cranberries until they’re soft, or the skins split. After it was done cooking, I added some Cabernet Wine Flour to enhance the flavor! You can order some HERE. If you don’t have any, don’t worry, it still tastes amazing!

Next, it’s time to make the bases for the oatmeal. The vibrant pink the cranberry base is so pretty! I love how easy and simple overnight oats are to make. PLUS, they are full of so much flavor! After they are made, add oats and stir well. Then layer in whatever kind of container you want to use and let it sit 6 hours or overnight. I hope that you enjoy the combination as much as I do!
