  • 1 cup rolled oats gluten-free
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1 tsp gingerbread spice*
  • 1 tablespoon creamy cashew butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tablespoons maple syrup OR molasses to taste
  • pinch of salt


  • Add oats and water to a saucepan and place over medium heat, bringing to a low boil and cooking until almost all of the water is absorbed, stirring occasionally (about 3-5 minutes). The mixture should start to thicken up.
  • Lower heat to low and add non-dairy milk, spices, cashew butter, vanilla extract, salt and sweetener of choice.
  • Stir to combine until smooth and continue to cook and stir until all the liquid is absorbed and your desired consistency is reached (roughly another 3-5 minutes). If you prefer your oats more runny, feel free to add more non-dairy milk. If you prefer them thicker, cook for a bit longer.
  • Transfer to a bowl, garnish with toppings of choice and additional sweetener if needed.


*you can make your own gingerbread spice by adding roughly 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 tsp ginger, pinch of cloves, nutmeg and allspice (I recommend 1/8 tsp each).
