Vegan Oreo Oatmeal Recipe

3-Step Oreo Oatmeal

WARNING: UNHEALTHY RECIPE AHEAD.

Let’s not kid ourselves – we all did a happy dance when we found out Oreos are accidentally vegan. Yes, they are not good for you, and they are still just a circle of processed crap. Seriously, they are bad for you. But guess what: We all have our days. Sometimes, you just need to satisfy your craving. Knowing that America’s favorite cookie is vegan makes life just a little sweeter – both figuratively and literally.

Instead of scarfing down a sleeve of Oreos (with ease, might I add), enjoy a bowl of Oreo Oatmeal. Oatmeal has its health bennies, and well, Oreos don’t… but 50/50? I’ll take it on a rainy day in my pajamas, when all I want to do is date my Netflix account and eat chocolate. I know every last one of you has felt this way at some point. No judgement zone, remember?

The Recipe

This recipe serves 2 people, or 1 if you are having a bad day.

You will need:

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup soy milk (or preferred)
  • 6-8 Oreos (or less, if you are trying to be good about this)
  • 1 tbs soy milk (or preferred)

Yep, just 3-steps, with 3 simple ingredients.

Step 1: Cook Your Oats

Easy enough. Bring soy milk to a boil, then add the oats. Turn down to a simmer, and stir occasionally. This takes about 2-5 minutes, depending on your stove. Once it looks like oatmeal, you’re in.

Step 2: Prep Your Oreos

In a small bowl or cup, add Oreos and 1 tbs of soy milk. Mash and mix until you have an Oreo-paste. WARNING: You are going to want to eat this with a spoon. Please refrain. Okay fine, just one bite.

Step 3: Mix and Marvel

Add the oatmeal to your favorite color bowl and stir in the Oreo paste. I went with my favorite lapis color, because hello, that is the symbolic color of Oreos. If you are feeling adventurous, crush another Oreo on top. Oof.

See… vegans can have fun, too. Thanks, Oreos! xx Bianca

  1. I secretly love those days, where you have an excuse (or not) to just watch your favorite tv-show back to back and enjoy all the candies and foods you usually try to stay away from :D I guess everyone has and needs those days. I like the idea to make it somewhat healthier with the oatmeal. Cool idea for my next oreo craving :D
    best, Lou

    • Oh, those days are my guilty pleasure! I just sit with my cat and chill out in front of the Walking Dead. It’s the best! I figured I would warn everyone that Oreos are NOT healthy, but hey… we do need to treat ourselves! :)

      Enjoy it! xx Bianca

      • It is a secret though and I feel silly for even saying they are GMO free. I’m not certain it’s true, but I heard on NPR a few months back that Oreos had gone GMO free around January and the only release of this information was a post on Facebook that no longer exists. I tried google searching just now and have no idea what happened to the article or post I first read/heard/saw. *Sigh* but I swear I did hear that they were GMO free! I emailed nabisco to ask. Haha…

    • They aren’t non-gmo, the high fructose corn syrup is created using gmo corn, and vanillin is created using genetically modified micro-organisms. Aslo, as a general “rule-of-thumb,” NEVER trust a product to be non-gmo if artificial flavoring is present… A large number of artificial flavors are created using GMO techniques.
