Today I’ve got a warm and cozy breakfast recipe for you. Creamy Matcha Oatmeal made with oats and matcha powder.

I love adding matcha powder to recipes like Matcha Energy Balls and Matcha Pancakes because it’s packed with so many incredible health benefits. If you love drinking a matcha latte in the morning, then you’re going to love this cozy bowl of oatmeal packed with matcha flavour.

For this oatmeal, you can use culinary-grade matcha powder or ceremonial-grade matcha powder. (Ceremonial grade matcha is typically more expensive and is used to make matcha tea, but if this is what you have on hand it will work too in this oatmeal.)

Why you’ll love this recipe

  • Packed with matcha flavour. If you’re someone who loves the taste of matcha then this is the breakfast for you!
  • Vegan and gluten-free. This matcha oatmeal is vegan, and gluten-free (make sure to use gluten-free oats) and is packed with 5 grams of fibre and 7.5 grams of protein per serving.
  • Easy breakfast. If you want a quick and easy breakfast ready in under 10 minutes this is the perfect recipe for you.

Matcha Oatmeal key ingredients

  • Oats: for this recipe, you can use quick oats or rolled oats, whichever you prefer. You could also use steel-cut oats, however, just keep in mind if you do the recipe will take about 25 minutes to make.
  • Oat milk: I like to use oat milk because it makes very creamy oatmeal, but you can use any type of plant-based milk.
  • Matcha powder: if you have culinary-grade matcha on hand, that would be perfect to use in this recipe.
  • Maple syrup: to sweeten. You can use any other type of sweetener you like.
  • Vanilla extract: just a dash to flavour the oatmeal.

How to make Creamy Matcha Oatmeal

Step 1

Add the oats and matcha powder to a small pot.

Expert tips for making this recipe

  • Quick oats will cook in the least amount of time, while rolled oats may take a few minutes longer to cook.
  • If you prefer a runnier oatmeal, add some more water or oat milk as you cook the oats.
  • Top this matcha oatmeal with your favourite toppings. I like to eat this oatmeal with bananas, coconut flakes, quinoa puffs, almond butter and a sprinkle of matcha powder.
  • If you’d like to make this recipe with steel-cut oats, follow the directions of the container of oats for cooking instructions. Steel cut oats will take much longer to cook.
