Vegan Peaches n' Cream Oatmeal

Easy and creamy, peach filled yumminess! And, it's vegan!

Servings: 4

Ingredients:

  • 2 fresh peaches (peeled and diced)
  • 2 cups rolled oats (I used Bob's Red Mill Organic Extra Thick Rolled Oats, which required 4 cups of water and a pinch of salt for cooking 4 servings)
  • 1/2 cup prepared cashew cream (Click this link for my EASY, 2 ingredient recipe)
  • 3 tablespoons coconut sugar (or your sweetener of choice)

How-to:

  1. Cook the oatmeal according to package directions for 4 servings. (My package said 2 cups oatmeal with 4 cups water, boil with a pinch of salt for 10 minutes or until creamy).
  2. When the oatmeal is finished cooking, remove from heat.
  3. Mix in the cashew cream, peaches and sugar. Stir well.
  4. Serve and enjoy!

Tips and Tricks:

  • Save some of the diced peaches and place on top of the oatmeal with a little extra cashew cream prior to serving.
  • Add a little maple syrup for a touch more sweetness.
  • You could use frozen peaches if you can't find fresh. Just thaw and dice approximately 10 slices.
  • Use the extra cashew cream in your coffee or over fresh fruit.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Anytime Oats With a Protein Punch

One of my go-to creamy, dreamy and sweet breakfast or dessert treats! The recipe is super simple, ready in 20 minutes and delicious any time of the day.

Serves: 1

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Gluten-Free Old Fashioned Quick Cooking Oats (I used Bob's Red Mill brand)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon chocolate protein powder (I used Tera's Whey brand, Dark Chocolate flavor, use a plant-based protein powder to make this recipe vegan.)
  • 1/2 cup vegan yogurt (I used So Delicious Coconut Yogurt Alternative)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1-2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips (add more or less as you prefer)

How-to:

  1. Mix all ingredients in a glass jar or bowl.
  2. Let sit in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes. (The amount of time you let them sit depends on how soft you want the oats).
  3. Eat and enjoy!

Notes: You can allow this recipe to sit overnight. Doing so will make it a thicker consistency. Eat as is if you like a thicker consistency or add a bit more milk to make it thinner.
