Vegan Oats for Breakfast Recipes

Oats are healthy. We should all eat more oats. This is my contribution by providing you with amazing vegan breakfast recipes containing oats (such as overnight oats and granola!).

Vegan Oats for Breakfast Recipes

I love, love, love having oats for breakfast, which is pretty convenient because they are healthy too!

Oats are rich in carbs and fiber (so super nutritious), but also high in manganese, phosphorus, magnesium, and iron. They also help reduce LDL cholesterol levels.

A tip on how to help your body absorb more iron:

  • Don’t have coffee with your oats. You can drink coffee half an hour before or after your breakfast, but drinking coffee directly with oats will reduce the absorption of iron.
  • Instead, have your oats with a glass of orange juice! Vitamin C helps absorb more iron.

I either make Overnight Oats or Granola, both can be made in advance, which is ideal for a person who can’t be bothered with preparing too much in the morning (me). I use fine rolled oats for all my recipes.

Overnight Oats

For a basic version, add rolled oats and plant-based milk into a jar and mix. Let it soak overnight. You can add fruits, nut butters, maple syrup on top.

I needed a easy, fast sugar free dessert to bring for myself to a party. I'm going to bring the chocolate over night oats with banana and almond butter. This way when others are eating sugary, oily, unhealthy cake, I will have something yummy, too! Thank you!

Great recipes. My husband and I recently tried oatmilk and absolutely loved it. Would love a oat milk recipe that is creamy not slimy and of course we can make it at home. Any ideas?
