Three Amazing Vegan Oatmeal Recipes.

For the longest time I avoided oatmeal in any form. I saw it as a bland breakfast soup with some oats floating around in it. This is mainly because the times I had tried it the oatmeal came from a microwave and was made with a copious amount of water. Clearly, I wasn’t a fan.

I’m so glad I gave it another chance two years ago; I’m now in love with the stuff. On a cold winter morning I wake up craving a warm bowl of oatmeal. I’ve found a way of making it that exactly suits my tastes (lots of flavour, very little liquid) and I’ve had fun trying out different flavour combinations. Today I’m sharing with you my top three favourite oatmeal recipes. They’re all pretty simple, and very customisable.

Baked apple and cinnamon oatmeal with brown sugar.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 1/2 cup dairy-free milk (I use Alpro’s almond and coconut milk blend)
  • 1 apple
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 – 2 tbsp cinnamon (depending on your preference)
  • Recommend toppings: chopped nuts and extra cinnamon.

How to make it:

  • You need two pans for this recipe: a regular non-stick cooking pan and a non-stick frying pan.
  • Add your dairy-free milk to your cooking pan. Heat the milk on medium heat.
  • In your frying pan, add your chopped apple, cinnamon and a splash of dairy-free milk. Cook on low heat and stir occasionally.
  • Once your milk is near boiling, add the oats and brown sugar. Give them a stir and let them sit for a few minutes. Keep stirring your oatmeal occasionally to avoid it sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  • Once your oatmeal is at it’s desired consistency take it off the heat and scoop it in a bowl.
  • Take your apples of the heat once they have brown and are starting to turn soft. Add them to the top of your oatmeal.
  • Lastly, add any desired toppings.
