How to make vegan oatmeal.
I have to say that I really didn’t like oatmeal as a child. It was totally disgusting in my opinion and looked like slop. Now that I’ve become totally food obsessed I’ve found a new love for oatmeal.
It could be the fact that my mom just wasn’t a great oatmeal maker. It could have been the way oatmeal was processed back in the day. All that is behind me now and oatmeal is my new go too anytime food.
Oatmeal can be extremely healthy provided we don’t dump too much extra stuff in it.
Understand that oatmeal can be over processed as well. You know those little instant packs of oatmeal that take 2 seconds to nuke in the microwave. Those are no good. I would definitely go with the rolled oats, steel cut oats (sometimes call Irish oats) or oat groats.
All these take longer to cook, but they are soooooo delicious.
Here are some benefits of eating more oatmeal:
- According to a Decision Analyst survey, in the U.S., Americans consider oatmeal to be the fourth healthiest food from a list of 70 foods and beverages.
- Supports weight loss.
- Boost energy.
- Prevents diabetes.
- Promotes gut health.
- High in fiber.
- And makes fantastic cookies. Yum! I’m all in for that.
Enough about the boring stuff. Enjoy this exciting video where I show you how to make delicious creamy VEGAN oatmeal.
1/2 cup Old Fashioned Oaks
1/2 Almond Milk or your choice of non-dairy milk
1 cup of water
As much cinnamon as you like
1 Ripe Banana
Put stove on medium high heat. Add the oats, almond milk, and water.
Peel banana and smush it in a bowl.
Be sure to watch and stir your oatmeal so it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.
Once the oatmeal begins to thicken, add bananas and cinnamon.
Continue stirring until the oatmeal reaches the consistency you desire.
Pour in your favorite bowl and top with honey or dried fruit. (Optional)
FYI, Honey is not vegan. You can any other sweeteners you would like.
