Orange Turmeric Tahini Overnight Oatmeal

It happened. I finally caved and put turmeric in my oatmeal.

I resisted creating turmeric recipes for a while because of my own bias against anything labeled a superfood. I don’t like it when people treat single ingredients as the ultimate fix for health. I loved turmeric, but I didn’t want to hop on the turmeric-hawking recipe train. Because I’m stubborn. 🙂

But ultimately, I didn’t want that to stop me from creating a delicious recipe (with a beautiful golden yellow hue). So turmeric it is. (more…)


Kabocha-Pomegranate Steel Cut Oatmeal with Pecans and Tahini

In the past year, I have reserved steel cut oats for savory recipes (it’s like a risotto!), but here I went all sweet. I’m pretty darn pleased with the result, too.

Earlier this year, I asked what ingredients I should use more of this autumn, and Melissa (@berries_n_green) suggested kabocha squash. (more…)


Sesame-Date Oatmeal Bites

Oatmeal bites! I have missed you. It’s been too long.

These little snacks are perfect for tahini lovers! The no-bake beauties pack a big smack of tahini flavor, only slightly tempered by the sweetness of the dates and maple syrup. Shout out to all my fellow bitter-loving tahini readers!!

Salted Tahini Fudge Oatmeal

#tahinitahinitahini

There is something I love about that bitter spread. I think it’s best use is in salad, which is what makes me go through my jars so quickly, but I also love it on oatmeal from time to time. Everything that made me cringe the first time I had it is why I love it now. I don’t think you can understand that sentence unless you’re a tahini convert yourself.

Tahini Banana Overnight Oatmeal

Isn’t this the best mess you’ve ever seen? Don’t you want to just lick it all up??

When I dumped this recipe into this bowl and saw it was going to overflow, I just kind of shrugged and let it happen. Then I dumped tahini all over it and let that overflow, too. It’s cascades of tahini delight.

Topping: Cinnamon-Tahini Icing [Guest Post]

Hi fellow oatmeal lovers!

My name is Kasia (@cathyhope9 on Instagram), and I’m honored to be sharing my second recipe on The Oatmeal Artist’s blog (first one was Cherry Chili Brownie Baked Oatmeal).

I love Lauren’s weekly themes. They save me from daily dilemma: what oatmeal am I going to have for breakfast?! When one of themes was cinnamon I knew I had to make:

  1. apple pie oatmeal,
  2. cinnamon roll oatmeal.

I’ve had apple pie thousands times before but… the problem was cinnamon roll. They are not popular in Poland where I am from, and I have never tried one. I couldn’t copy the flavor I didn’t know. So I searched for the recipe for the stove-top Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal, and TheVegan8 recipe was what I was looking for! (more…)


Molasses Tahini Oatmeal

Molasses and tahini create a simple, classic Turkish treat known as Tahin Pekmez. It can be eaten by the spoonful–like a dessert soup, if you will–or used as a dip with breads. The real deal is made using grape molasses, but that’s not particularly something that can be found on a whim in the States, so good ol’ regular molasses will do.

The great part about combining molasses with tahini is that it mellows tahini’s bitterness without completely obliterating it. Molasses has such a strong flavor with just a hint of sweetness, which complements tahini beautifully. If you think you don’t like tahini, I think this could potentially change your mind! (But alas, I say that about all my tahini recipes. 😇)

Apple Tahini Green Smoothie

*clears throat* Here is a perfect recipe for those days when you just don’t want to turn on the oven.

I promise that’s the last cliche of this post!

I have wanted to make this apple-tahini recipe for a long time, but as a baked oatmeal. I have been hoarding a couple tablespoons of tahini for a month just to make this, but every time I have the opportunity, I think about summonsing the hellfires of my oven, and I quickly change my mind. I never used to understand when people posted no-bake recipes and referred to “not wanting to turn on your oven,” but I get it now.

I was lucky enough to grow up with air conditioning. It wasn’t quite “central air,” but it was a good enough system that my entire house was consistently too cold by my preferences (tragic, I know). Thus, I was more than happy to turn on the oven and bake cookies on a 90-degree day in July, or to stand over a sweat-inducing pot of oats on a humid August morning. (more…)


Raspberry and Chocolate Tahini Oatmeal

Behold . . .

Raspberry and Chocolate Tahini Oatmeal #OatmealArtist #Vegan

The very first time I used tahini in oatmeal, I made this Raspberry Oatmeal with Tahini and Dark Chocolate Chunks. You’ll notice from that post that I didn’t love the tahini. I believe the word I used to describe it was “fine.” (more…)


Mango Tahini Oatmeal

Mango. 💛

I adore mango, especially when I can find a way to temper the sweetness a bit. What calms sweetness better than a swirl of tahini?
