What You'll Need
  • 3 cups water
  • 80 grams piloncillo
  • 2-3 cinnamon sticks
  • 3 cups plant milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  1. To a large pot, add the water, piloncillo, and cinnamon sticks. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 5 minutes to dissolve the piloncillo.
  2. Next, add in the plant milk, vanilla, and oats. Cover and bring to a low boil again, then lower the heat to simmer for 15 minutes, stirring frequently. If you prefer your oatmeal a little thicker, cook for an additional 5 minutes with the lid off.
  3. Divide between bowls and serve with plant milk, sweetener of choice, a sprinkle of cinnamon, sliced bananas, dried fruit, or whatever else you can think of. Enjoy!
