Good morning, oatmeal lovers! Today marks my first day back home in NYC (it’s great to be back!), and I have been so appreciative of everyone who has helped me keep the blog active with fantastic recipes while I’ve been traveling. This recipe comes to us from Taigen, the Oatmeal Enthusiast from July. The moment I saw it, I knew I wanted to see the recipe for myself and to share it with my readers. Luckily for all of us, she said yes!
Hi guys! I am so happy to be back! And thank you to Lauren for asking me to share one of my zoat recipes with you – I hope you all like it!

One morning I woke up craving coffee and a bit of a ‘kick’ to start the day. It then occurred to me that I could put coffee in my daily oats and just eat it instead. So that’s exactly what I did.
This has been one of my favourite coffee-oat creations to date. The use of vanilla protein powder gives it a sweetened edge that I love.
