cinnamon rolls are really well, the best thing ever! so any time i can make cinnamon roll flavored anything, there’s a one hundred percent chance i’m going to. from cookies to cakes, cupcakes, oatmeal and smoothies, the options are endless. there’s nothing better than a cozy bowl of oatmeal in the morning, so this recipe is just perfect!
lots of people request food tutorials, so i did one for Vegan Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal this morning. i’ll be sure to save it to my food tutorial highlight so you can make it with me! oatmeal is pretty easy to make, but it really helps to watch someone make something.
so, what are you going to need for this recipe?
- old fashioned oats
- unsweetened dairy free milk
- creamy dairy free yogurt
- vegan butter
- coconut sugar
if you need to replace the coconut sugar, go for it! you can definitely use maple syrup or any sweetener of your choosing. additionally, you can use any dairy free yogurt, but i recommend coconut if you have some on hand or access to it. if you don’t have applesauce but have some leftover pumpkin purée, i would use that!
since oatmeal is one of my favorite breakfasts in the world, you know i have other oatmeal recipes!! check out these favorites of mine!
