LOVE LOVE LOVE this! One of the BIG changes in our house is breakfast! I am NOT buying that junky cereal! I will not! (Well maybe I will if I am ever tired of making breakfast or for a special treat!) But not right now! Our house consists of eggs, bagels (5 ingredient bread), paleo pumpkin muffins, and more. This one here is what I make Sunday night and eat throughout the week! That and my green smoothies, another post! But this here is my favorite way to eat Steel-Cut Oats...it's so delicious I don't even feel the need to add the honey! It says it's two servings, but I made this last for five days for me!
Enjoy!
