Vegan Baked Oatmeal with Walnut Crumble! Nom nom!
Are you a fan of oatmeal or -for you my british friends- porridge?
Well well well, if your answer was a “yes”, or even if I got a “no” from you, let me tell you, you’ll be obsessed with this way of eating oats! It’s simply fantastic and so so delicious!
You’ll be able to whip everything out in some solid 15-20 minutes, then you’ll bake it and boom! If you make a big batch you’ll have breakfast and/or dessert for a couple days. Yee yee!
One of the things I love about this recipe is that you can adapt it to the ingredients you’ve got in your pantry!
E.g. If you don’t have almond butter, you can substitute it for any other kind of nut butter (peanut butter, sunflower butter, cashew butter, walnut butter, etc.). Walnuts can also be substituted for peanuts, almonds, cashews, etc. Or even if you just want to give it a funky twist, feel free to mix nuts or nut butters.
Hope you like it!
