Equipment

  • Large pot
  • Measuring cups & spoons

Ingredients
 

  • 3 cups water ($0.01)
  • 80 g piloncillo ($0.15)
  • 2-3 cinnamon sticks ($0.10)
  • 3 cups plant milk ($1.28)
  • 2 tsp vanilla ($0.42)
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats ($0.22)

Instructions
 

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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!

Notes

  • If you aren't able to find piloncillo, use equal amounts of brown or coconut sugar.
  • If you don't have cinnamon sticks, you can also use powdered cinnamon. For every stick, use a ½ tsp powdered.
