Oats – this healthy, gluten-free grain is a great source of vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants. Prepare the finest creamy oatmeal with this recipe and nurture yourself for the day ahead.

Somehow it seems to me that oatmeal – and oats, in general – need no introduction. This dish has become so popular for the last 10 years that it has already gotten a commercial instant version in a bag, and we’ve all heard at least once that oats are a great breakfast option, right?

To prepare delicious creamy oatmeal porridge you only need a few minutes time, and your body will be thankful to you for the next few hours. Today I am sharing a recipe and instructions on how to prepare a simple and very delicious creamy vegan oatmeal (with the irresistable taste of roasted hazelnuts).

I use large flake oats to prepare the porridge, but you can certainly use quick oats as well. However, in that the cooking time will be shorter and the texture will not be that chewy . As you will see, I do not use any sweetener in this recipe since the cinnamon and hazelnuts give them a very nice flavor (as well as the milk you will use). However, if you wish to have your porridge a bit sweeter, add 1 teaspoon of coconut sugar during cooking, or top your porridge with some liquid sweetener. Enjoy!

  • 2/3 cup (70g) large flake oats
    1 cup (240ml) water
    1/2 cup (120 ml) plantbased milk (plus more if desired **)
    1/2 tspcinnamon, a pinch of salt
    1/3 cup (30g) toasted, ground hazelnuts ***
    optional: apple, coconut cream and hemp seeds to serve


  1. Put the oatmeal, water, cinnamon and salt in a saucepan over low heat and let it simmer.
  2. When it starts bubbling, cook it over low heat with stirring, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add milk, hazelnuts and cook for another 2-3 minutes (stir them once in a while).
  4. If desired, add more milk and allow to cool (the oats will pick up more liquid and the porridge will thicken).
  5. Serve the oatmeal porridge with coconut cream, apple slices, cinnamon and hemp seeds.
*If you are gluten intolerant or allergic, be sure to use certified gluten free oatmeal
** This is a recipe for a fairly thick, chewy porridge (as pictured). If you prefer it thinner, add another 1/4-1/2 cup milk.
*** I always have toasted (whole) hazelnuts at hand, so I just grind them when need to use.
