1 cup rolled oats
2 cups plant-based milk (such as almond milk, soy milk, or oat milk)
1 ripe banana, mashed
1 tablespoon maple syrup or other sweetener (optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
Toppings of your choice (e.g., fresh fruits, nuts, seeds, coconut flakes)
In a saucepan, combine the rolled oats, plant-based milk, mashed banana, maple syrup (if using), vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt.
Place the saucepan over medium heat and bring the mixture to a gentle boil, stirring occasionally.
Reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 5 minutes, or until the oats have absorbed most of the liquid and become creamy. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.
Remove the saucepan from heat and let it sit for a minute or two to thicken further.
Transfer the oatmeal to serving bowls and add your desired toppings, such as fresh fruits, nuts, seeds, or coconut flakes.
Give it a gentle stir to combine the toppings with the oatmeal.
Serve the vegan oatmeal warm and enjoy!
