Pumpkin, Brown Sugar, and Fig Oatmeal

I’ve been doing this thing for a week or two now where I don’t buy bananas so I can’t make Cardamom Fudge Oatmeal (my favorite). It’s amazing how that forces me to make different recipes, like this one.

This recipe might stick out to you compared to my usual repertoire because of the brown sugar. I think this is my first one with brown sugar, ever. Typically, when I want a brown sugar flavor, I just use a drop of molasses. However, I recently bought brown sugar to make (a veganized version of) Allison’s Chocolate Chip Cookies con mi novio. Since I have it, I’ve been playing around with it in my oatmeal. Continue reading

Persimmon, Cardamom, and Pistachio Oatmeal [Guest Post]

Hi there! If we haven’t met yet, my name is Kelsey, aka @amindfulvegan on Instagram. When Lauren said she was going to take a little bit of time off, I offered to help keep the oatmeal content coming with a guest post. I can’t say this is as exciting as Christine’s oatmeal packet pancakes, but it’s still pretty tasty.

This recipe features one of my favorite fruits: persimmons. Their season is painfully short, but persimmons are so delicious. They pair well with a lot of flavors: you can get fancy with matcha oatcakes with maple persimmon compote or keep it super simple with persimmon cinnamon-raisin oats (both Lauren’s recipes, of course).

Oatmeal Packet Pancakes [Guest Post]

In case you missed it, I am taking a mini-break to get my life together. Major love to Christina (and Kelsey) for volunteering to share some recipes with everyone this week. 

❤️ 💛 💙 💜

Hello again!  For those of you who don’t ‘know’ me (at least virtually), my name is Christina and I was the Oatmeal Enthusiast in May and December 2015.  Lauren’s blog has brought me so much joy and inspiration that when I saw she would be taking a break, I wanted to pay it forward with guest recipes.

Like many of you, my first experience with oatmeal was with the Quaker Instant Oatmeal packets.  After I started making my own oatmeal, I gradually – but not entirely – stopped buying those packets.  Whenever I see a new and interesting flavor, I can’t help but buy a box.   Continue reading

Double Sunflower Seed Granola [Nut Free!]

“Wow.” “Wait, you made this yourself?” “I’ve never had granola that tasted this good.”

double-sunflower-seed-granola-by-the-oatmealartist-veganThese were a few of the comments I received after sharing this new granola recipe with my boyfriend and his roommates. To be fair, it seemed this was their first experience with any homemade granola, so of course they would find it mind-blowingly good (I remember my first experience with homemade granola. Mmmmm).

I’ve made peanut butter granola before, but I’ve never made it with sunbutter. Indeed, I have rarely made anything with sunbutter!

Guess how many nut butters I have in my cupboard and fridge. Guess. Got a number in your head? Continue reading
