Oatmeal (vegan style)


Thank the Lord oatmeal is a two-thumbs-up breakfast according to the Plant-Based Diet. This recipe isn't much different from my other Oatmeal recipe, but there's just a few substitutions that will be made so that it's plant-based official (AKA...substituting plant-based milk for cow's milk and holding off on the egg whites).


  • 1/3 - 1/2 cup Rolled oats
  • 1/3 - 1/2 Plant-based milk (Almond, Cashew, Coconut, Soy, etc.)
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp Maple extract (optional)
  • Cinnamon
  • Sweetener to taste (Raw honey, Maple syrup, Stevia, Mashed banana, Natural unsweetened applesauce)
  • Toppings/Mix-ins: (Pick a few!)
    • Banana (Nanners are a must for me when it comes to oatmeal)
    • Berries (Strawberries, Blueberries, Raspberries)
    • Apple, chopped
    • Nut/seed butter (Peanut, Almond, Cashew, Sunflower Seed, etc.)
    • Chopped Walnuts or Almonds
    • Chia seeds or Hemp seeds
    • Mashed berries for "jam"


  1. Follow directions for the oats according to the package, mixing in the extracts towards the end of cooking. 
  2. Add in as much cinnamon as desired. I loooooove cinnamon. I am a die hard "Cinna-woman" as they say :) 
  3. When the oats are done cooking, add in your sweetener, and have fun with the toppings! Try new things & keep life interesting because getting sick of oatmeal would be tragic. It's just too much of beautiful thing. 
  4. Send me pictures of your oatmeal creations! I want to see them!
