4 ingredient, sweet and creamy vanilla soaked oats!

This recipe is so easy to make, uses high quality ingredients and 100% vegan as I am using non-dairy milk.

Adding vanilla to desserts and sweet treats makes a lot of sense.

I love using vanilla paste as the vanilla taste is stronger and you can see the specks of vanilla!

The four ingredients used in this recipe are oats, non-dairy milk, vanilla and maple syrup.

If you are using sweetened non-dairy milk, I recommend skipping the maple syrup.

After mixing the ingredients,  the vanilla soaked oats are refrigerated to soak.

If you are using old-fashioned rolled oats or steel cut oats, soaking time will be a bit longer.

This is why I prefer using quick oats or old-fashioned rolled oats that I quickly process in my food processor to make the oat pieces smaller.

Oats are one of the healthiest grains and consuming oats and oatmeal have many health benefits.

They are a good source of carbs and fiber, which makes it great for a healthy digestion and also keeps us fuller longer.

Oats also contain more protein and fat than most grains!

Soaked oats make for a great breakfast, snack or even dessert.

You can boost the nutritional value by adding fresh berries, chopped nuts or even seeds like chia and hemp.



Mix Everything In a Bowl

Add all of the ingredients to a bowl or large glass jug with a pour spout.

Mix well to distribute the vanilla paste evenly.

Pour the vanilla oat mixture into jars or bowls then cover, making sure it is air-tight, and refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes or overnight.



I like to top my vanilla soaked oats with fruit, nuts or seeds.

Store in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

Hi Rachel! Though most vanilla paste’s do contain sugar, it’s a very small amount. That said, I personally don’t like it too sweet but prefer it with the maple syrup.
