Vegan Peaches & "Cream" Homemade Oatmeal

October 21, 2017

 

It's a Friday night and I was debating being a cool kid and going to my most favorite dance club. But as soon as the clouds came rolling in, I lost ALL motivation. So, currently I'm soaking in a hot bath, sipping on a rose soda and chopping on Oreos. Pretty amazing night, actually. 

 

Don't judge me.

 

I'm pretty confident, I'll be in bed by 10. Correction, 9pm.  I have hosted several nights this past week and was over served last night. Good time to catch up on some R&R! 

But I have been craving Oreos like a fat kid in a candy store. Which, is totally bizarre since I have never-ever bought a package myself. Eaten them? Most obviously. But purchased them myself? Nope. Just a really weird couple weeks with cravings and everything. And they're vegan. What!!? I'm mulling over an Oreo recipe. To be continued...

 

But I have totally been on a vegan kick. I feel like I need to apologize to you all, for some reason 🙄

I'm not getting rid of all dairy, but it's probably a wise idea to cut it a little out of my diet. Next move is sugar, because that really is the ultimate sin. Such a terrible ingredient, but motherfucker is effing tasty. Plus, candy. I LOVE candy. It's my top 7 favorites. And what's in candy? SUGAR! Lots and lots of sugar! Ugh. 

 

But this little baby doesn't have any processed sugar. I will admit I was heavy handed on the additional "drizzle" of maple syrup. Because the good stuff, sure as hell tastes just as delicious as candy. 

Anyway. Back to my vegan kick. So, I whipped up this oatmeal a couple weeks ago and was terribly impressed with it. Keep in mind I was on my weird non-diet (diet) and dirt may have been just as tasty as anything I put in my mouth. But! Seriously, this is good. Plus, waaaay healthier than that instant Peaches & Cream oatmeal we all used to eat in the 90s. Tell me I wasn't alone! I really enjoyed the Strawberries & Cream and the Peaches & Cream. Probably because it was loaded with sugar! Noms. So, check it out. Let me know what you think.
