Long time, no oatmeal recipe!


I swear it’s been forever since we posted an oatmeal recipe, so this is long due. In fact, This Recipe was posted in early July! Anyways, it’s not like i haven’t eaten oatmeal since then, i eat it every. single. day. My add in of choice is usually pumpkin, but i decided to change it up since sweet potato are gaining popularity this time of year because of thanksgiving. Im not complaining though, sweet potatoes give oatmeal an incredible creaminess and sweetness that pumpkin doesn’t.


Sweet Potato casserole is my favorite thanksgiving dish, as Bethany already mentioned Here. So this oatmeal is pretty much a breakfast version of sweet potato casserole with the addition of tart dried cranberries, crunchy pecans, and a sweet drizzle of pure maple syrup that is healthy enough for a delicious and satisfying breakfast.


This delicious oatmeal contains no refined sugar, is vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free and an incredible dessert for breakfast!
