I'm always on the lookout for a new vegan oatmeal recipe, and this one certainly does not disappoint.
This simple breakfast idea is great if you're looking for an easy way to spice up your morning meals. It's really easy to make and uses just a few simple plant-based ingredients.
This is also a yummy breakfast for kids that they will love! The beautiful pink color makes things fun and exciting.
This article discusses the nutritional benefits of oats, which makes this a healthy breakfast recipe.
Oatmeal: I personally love using classic rolled oats when I make oatmeal, but there are tons of great choices when it comes to oatmeal selection.
From rolled oats to steel cut, or quick oats, there are so many options to choose from. Here is a great resource talking all about the different varieties of oats and each of their benefits.
Oat Milk: I use half water and half plant-based milk when cooking my oats to make things extra creamy and delicious.
Raspberries: Again with the half and half trend, I like using half fresh raspberries and half frozen in this recipe. Using frozen raspberries to stir into the oats gives a more intense pop of pink color. Then I use the fresh berries to garnish and top at the end.
Optional Ingredients: Fresh fruit (especially berries), granola, coconut flakes, or a drizzle of maple syrup.
- Cook your oatmeal on the stovetop using half water and half almond milk. If you like your oats with a thicker or thinner consistency, adjust liquids accordingly.
- In the last couple minutes of cooking your oats stir in your raspberries, maple syrup, and stir well, you will get a beautiful pink color! I noticed that when I used frozen raspberries, the pink was more vibrant.
- Transfer oats to a bowl and add your toppings.
Substitutions and Additions
You can use any type of oatmeal you have on hand, see link above for some options!
If you don't have oat milk you can substitute any type of plant-based milk such as almond milk, soy milk, etc. You can also omit the plant milk and just use water if you prefer.
If you want your oats to be a little sweeter you can add maple syrup, agave nectar, or organic cane sugar.
Last but not least, I love garnishing my oats with fresh fruit and granola.
