A smooth, creamy and delicious oatmeal which has the taste and texture of actual vanilla cake batter! This healthy vanilla cake batter oatmeal can be enjoyed hot or cold and is suitable for those following a vegan, gluten-free, dairy free and sugar free lifestyle!
Combine oats, salt and 1 cup of milk in a saucepan or microwave safe bowl until most of the liquid is absorbed. Whisk in the whole egg very well (or flax egg) and continue cooking for another 1-2 minutes, until oats are extremely fluffy.
Stir in the vanilla protein powder, sweetener of choice, vanilla extract and coconut flour until fully combined- Oatmeal 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, stir the oatmeal very well and top with nut butter/sprinkles etc. Reheat if desired.
* If protein powder is sweetened, omit. The protein powder is optional- If you omit, decrease the dairy free milk by 1/4 cup. Ensure you use the whole egg over egg whites (if not using flax egg) as it provides the cake batter like texture. If you don't have coconut flour, add a tablespoon of flaxmeal, oat flour or almond flour.
