  • 1/2 cup oat bran
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 cups dairy free milk of choice
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tsp Saigon cinnamon the most pronounced cinnamon blend
  • 1 large egg for a vegan option, add 1 tablespoon flax
  • 1 scoop of cinnamon or vanilla protein powder*
  • 1 T coconut flour sifted
  • Frosting
  • 2 T dairy free cream cheese
  • 1 tsp granulated sweetener of choice
  • 1- 2 T dairy free milk of choice
  • extra cinnamon for topping


  • Combine oat bran, salt and 1 cup of almond milk in a saucepan or microwave safe bowl until most of the liquid is absorbed. Whisk in the whole egg OR flaxseed very well and continue cooking for another 1-2 minutes, or until the egg is fully cooked and oats are fluffy.
  • Stir in the vanilla/cinnamon protein powder, vanilla essence and coconut flour until fully combined- Oat bran mixture should be extremely thick. Add in the extra 1/4 cup of milk and ensure it is well mixed. Once this is done, refrigerate uncovered.
  • The next morning, make the frosting by combining the dairy free cream cheese, sweetener of choice and milk of choice in a small bowl. Top the oatmeal and douse with extra cinnamon.


If you omit the protein powder, add an extra tablespoon of sweetener to taste. For the frosting, try not to use reduced fat varieties as are too thin and lack flavour- it's all about authenticity here.
