Homemade Oat Cereal, yummy yum!
This cereal is made with great ingredients, so if you’ve got the time to make it, I highly recommend it! It is a much better option than most cereals you usually find at the supermarket.
Besides it’s gluten-free! For all those who are on a gluten-free, low gluten diet or that are celiacs, this cereal is great for you!
The only thing I do have to warn you about is that the process takes a little time, I won’t lie to you 😛
You’ve got to put a little bit more love into this recipe than usual. But they are so worth it. So make yourself a tea, play some good music and let’s make some yummy cereal!
Having them as a snack is also a wonderful idea! You can even melt some dark chocolate to drizzle the cereal with it and BOOM! That’s what I call perfection! Such a yummy and healthy treat!
MAJOR TIP FOR THE HOMEMADE OAT CEREAL 👀
Another thing I highly recommend taking care of in this recipe is the baking time, because they’re done very quickly and if we get distracted we can end up with some burnt Homemade Oat Cereal lol. And nobody wants to eat that right? hihi.
Hope you guys like the recipe!
Homemade Oat Cereal (Vegan)
- 2 cups oat flour (grind raw oats)
- ½ cup coconut or brown sugar
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp cinnamon powder
- 1 cup plant milk, warm (coconut, soy, almond, etc.)
- 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
- Preheat oven to 180°C.
- In a medium bowl, mix all the dry ingredients. Add plant milk and mix. Add melted coconut oil and mix again. Let sit in the fridge for 5 minutes.
- Transfer the mixture to a piping bag or plastic bag. I used a plastic bag and it worked perfect, just cut off one of the tips to make it work as a piping bag (the hole should be small).
- On a baking tray, place a silicone mat or parchment paper and form droplets/small disks with the previous mixture, leaving a little space between them. The mixture yields for about 3-4 batches, depending on the size of the silicone mat or parchment paper.
- Bake for 15 minutes. Turn the pan over half the time so that the droplets that are closer to the inner wall of the oven don't burn and the whole batch gets an even golden color (they cook super fast, pay attention to the baking time).
- Remove from the oven, let cool and store in an airtight container or bag.
Hi, great recipe! However, it’s not gluten-free. Oats have gluten.
Hello darling! I’m glad you like it! Oats can be gluten-free if they’re not processed in the same facilities as gluten-containing grains. So I guess it depends on which brand you get. But oats in its pure form are gluten-free. Here’s an article from a trusted source in case you want to check it out ♥ https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/gluten-in-oats#oats-basics
Hi, I tried your recipe yesterday and I was surprised of how fast it came together and what wholesome ingridients I used. The taste was slightly sweet and cinamonny and I really enjoyed It. The cereals were crunchy when I got them out of the oven but after they chilled completely I stored them in an airtight jar and they became rather soft. Also, when I put them in warm milk they melted down almost immediately. Is there a way to mantain these crispy and crunchy? Otherwise loved the idea and overall taste. Thanks for sharing the recipe. You gave me a great idea maybe to add some nutmeg and cloves next time or maybe some cocoa powder and chocolate bites.
Hello Georgiana! Hope you’re doing well! Oh!! That shouldn’t be happening (cereal getting soft in an airtight container), but it can be due to the weather! I would recommend to keep them in the fridge then ;)! And since they don’t have any type of chemicals/preservatives, that happens if you leave then soaking in milk for a little while. Something that could help would be to make them a little bigger!
And that’s a lovely idea! I bet they will taste amazing!!
Hope this was helpful ♥
Can you add peanut butter to this recipe? If so how much do you recomend to add?
Hello, Ria! To replace the coconut oil for peanut butter? If that’s the case you can add 2 tbsp of peanut butter instead of the coconut oil, I think that would work just fine (haven’t tried it yet tho!💕)
