Lemon White Chocolate Oatmeal

Is it spring? I thought it was, but then I went to Philadelphia with my spring coat and basically froze to death. As soon as I returned to my apartment in New York, I switched back to my heavy winter coat. Ugh!

To fool myself into thinking it is, in fact, spring, I returned to my beloved lemon-flavored oats. Every spring, I just can’t get enough lemon in my oatmeal!  This time, I combined it with white chocolate chips. The tang of the lemon and the sweet white chocolate are definitely a winning combination!

Another fun way to make this oatmeal would be with a blob of Peanut Butter & Co.’s White Chocolate Wonderful. It’s definitely not my favorite (tastes like Butterfingers or something), but I know a lot of people who love it, so…

How’s the weather in your neck of the woods? I hope for your sake that you’re having a better spring season than I am! ๐Ÿ™‚

Lemon White Chocolate Oatmeal

by The Oatmeal Artist
Prep Time: 2 min
Cook Time: 5 min
Ingredients (serves 1)
  • 3/4 cup milk of choice, or water
  • 1/4 cup quick cook steel-cut oats (I use Country Choice Organic)
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice (the juice of one lemon) or 1 tsp lemon extract
  • pinch of salt
  • handful of white chocolate chips (I use the King David brand)
  1. Bring milk (I use 1/2 c almond milk and 1/4 c water) to a boil, add oats, and reduce heat to medium. (If you’d like to add a teaspoon of flax or chia seeds, do so now.)
  2. Mash banana thoroughly and stir into oatmeal.
  3. Once more of the liquid has absorbed, add lemon juice, lemon extract, and salt. Stir.
  4. When you’re pleased with the consistency of the oatmeal, transfer to a bowl. Add a splash of your milk of choice, white chocolate chips, and any other additional toppings (pomegranate seeds, shredded coconut, nuts, etc.).

    This oatmeal was fantastic! I was a little skeptical because I do not like when the lemon flavor is over abundant, but the white chocolate really counteracts the lemon and gave a nice flavor combination!
