Instant Oatmeal: 5 Vegan Recipes

This post is sponsored by The Quaker Oats Company, but all opinions are my own. These five vegan recipes for instant oatmeal make sure that breakfast is always exciting! There are savory and sweet recipes to satisfy any craving.

I’ve got not one… not two… but FIVE recipes for you today. Because, if you’re like me, you easily get caught in a breakfast rut. So, why not share with you five vegan oatmeal recipes? No more breakfast rut!

Is Instant Oatmeal Good For You?

Ounce per ounce, the oats used in all Quaker varieties (Instant, Quick, Old Fashioned, and Steel Cut) provide similar amounts of fiber, vitamins, and minerals! Plus, they’re all 100% whole grain. Oats serve as a nutritious blank canvas to inspire culinary creativity, and what variety you choose depends on the texture you prefer and how much time you have to cook.

(Psssst: Trying to eat more oats? Head to my recipe index and click “oats” in the ingredients section for more recipes using oats.)

How to Make Instant Oatmeal

We’re focusing on Quaker Organic Instant Oatmeal for these five vegan oatmeal recipes because most of the time, we just want to make a quick breakfast and get on with our days. Thankfully, Quaker Organic Instant Oatmeal is ready in under 2 minutes! Here are the two ways to cook it:

  1. Pour 1/2 cup hot water or non-dairy milk over the oats and let it sit for a minute.
  2. Microwave the oats with 2/3 cup water or non-dairy milk for 1-2 minutes.

I’m using the microwave method for the recipes below, but feel free to use either cooking method.

Finally, let’s get onto the recipes!
