We’ve been making these Lemon Cream Steel Cut Oats for quite a few weeks now. We are obsessed with lemon and these definitely hit the spot. They aren’t too over the top of tartness, sweetness, or tanginess but the perfect combination of all three!
These oats are the perfect healthy breakfast, just pair with eggs or yogurt for some added protein. With the days starting to warm up and summer upon us, now is the perfect time to introduce some lemon into your diet. Unless you are like us and eat them year round!
