We’ve partnered with Planet Oat to bring you our latest contest: We’re looking for your creamiest, dreamiest dessert that holds the cream (not the dreams) and brings on the Oatmilk.
We love oat milk splashed into coffee, spooned with cereal, simmered in Bolognese...the list goes on. But what about all the ways this non-dairy nectar delights us in desserts?
Our latest recipe contest is after just that. Your best plant-based dessert recipe should not only make use of oat milk, but be made all the better for it. Think: oat-y muffins made even oat-ier, silkier mousses, fluffier frostings, and more.
And this time around, the Q&A with the winner will take the form of a video interview! Stay tuned. (Future winner: We’re very excited to share your dessert with you.)
Submissions are now open, until August 9 at 6 p.m. ET. There’s really just one hard-and-fast rule you'll need to keep in mind:
This contest is all about your best plant-based dessert starring oat milk. Recipes that don’t include oat milk need not apply.
If you have a recipe already on the site, go to that recipe page, hit "Edit Recipe" (under the photo), scroll down, hit "Submit my recipe to a contest," select the latest contest ("Your Best Plant-Based Dessert Starring Oat Milk"), and save.
If you want to add a new recipe, head to your own profile page, select "Recipes," click "Add a Recipe," upload it, hit "Submit my recipe to a contest," select the latest contest, and save.
We read every submission and test as many as possible. But that’s a lot of reading and a lot of testing. We’re counting on you to help, too. Peruse the submission pages and make (and favorite!) any recipe that catches your eye. Then, share feedback on the recipe page. We take all this feedback into account as we narrow submissions down to the top five, which will be announced in mid-August.
