These Lemon Cream Steel-Cut Oats can easily be made in the Instant Pot, crockpot, or on the stovetop and make the perfect healthy breakfast.


  • 2 cups steel-cut oats
  • 3/4 cups liquid egg whites
  • 1.5 cups almond milk
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp stevia extract
  • juice of 23 whole lemon(s)
  • lemon zest, if desired


  • Instant Pot: Add all ingredients to your Instant Pot and cook on manual, high pressure for 10 minutes. Allow natural release.
  • Crock Pot: Add all ingredients to your Crock Pot and cook on low for 7-8 hours.


  • The easiest way to determine your serving size is to weigh the entire batch of oats once they are finished cooking and divide by the number of servings (which is 8 if you use 2 cups of steel cut oats).
  • We find our serving size to be around 210 grams.
