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?
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
