This vegan oatmeal is a wonderful healthy and refined sugar free breakfast that’s full of caramel flavors! It’s fast and easy to make and such a hit!
Another week, another oatmeal? Sure, why not! After all, the flavor possibilities of oatmeal are endless! I find oatmeal on its own quite plain. It also depends a bit on how you prepare it. Some people make it with water and some with (and kind of) milk. I make it with water and milk (almond milk in my case) which is perfect for me. But adding flavor to it and – in the best case – lots of texture definitely elevates it to a whole new level! So this is oatmeal recipe no. 7 (yes, I checked) and it’s a good one!
I’m guessing, since you clicked on this recipe, that you’re a salted caramel lover? If not (yet?), then I seriously hope you’re ready to become one! Salted caramel is one of my guilty pleasures. Caramel on its own is already in-cre-di-ble but add salt and it’s like WOAH! Salted caramel ice cream is my no. 3 of my all-time favorite ice cream flavors (pistacchio being no. 1 and dark chocolate no. 2). So adding salted caramel sauce to anything and everything has become my favorite thing to do since I first made my Salted Coconut Caramel Sauce. Have you tried it yet? Please do!! It’s so so good!
So naturally I love the salted caramel sauce on oatmeal as well! And in oatmeal too! It’s sort of a mix in and add on top situation. I also added carob powder and coconut sugar to the oatmeal while cooking it to add even more caramel flavors. The oatmeal has a lovely light caramel flavor but it’s not like in your face caramel either. That would be a bit much for me for breakfast!
I love offsetting the sweetness of the caramel sauce a bit with the tartness of the raspberries. They work beautifully with the caramel flavors too. And aren’t they so pretty? I just love raspberries! I might have added more afterwards when I ate it all up. Strawberries would work very well too, I’m sure.
And hemp seeds! Because hemp seeds on oatmeal is the BEST. They’re super nutritious and they taste amazing. If you haven’t had them yet, they’re sort of nutty and go really well with oatmeal or smoothie bowls. I love sprinkling them on top of my breakfast and so does the rest of my family.
Will you make this oatmeal soon? Or how about my Vegan “Snickers” Oatmeal?
Vegan Salted Caramel Oatmeal
This vegan oatmeal is a wonderful healthy and refined sugar free breakfast that's full of caramel flavors! It's fast and easy to make and such a hit!
Mix your quick cooking oats with 1 cup of boiling water and the pinch of salt. Set aside for 5 minutes.
When the 5 minutes have passed, add almond milk, carob powder and coconut sugar to the oats and cook for 5 minutes on medium heat until creamy. Stir every now and then to make sure they don't stick to the bottom of the pot. Take off the heat and mix in 1 tsp of salted caramel sauce.
Pour the oatmeal into a bowl and top with coconut milk, more salted caramel sauce and fresh raspberries. Enjoy!
