Oatmeal is the ultimate breakfast food: it’s healthy, filling, versatile, simple, and delicious. It’s really hard to go wrong when making a bowl of oats. Vegan oatmeal recipes are also super easy to make! All you need to do is use non-dairy milk (and non-dairy yogurt if you’re into that kind of thing), then go off! You can add fruits, nut-butters, dark chocolate, seeds, and so much more! The possibilities are endless. Because of oatmeal’s versatility, it’s really hard to get tired of eating oats for breakfast. One day you can have a rich, chocolate oatmeal and the next you could have a fruitier one. Or mix them! If you love oatmeal, then you might already know that October 29th is National Oatmeal Day! What better way to celebrate than making your own delicious bowl of vegan oatmeal?
