Today I’ve got a warm and cozy breakfast recipe for you guys. Creamy vanilla matcha oatmeal!

It’s been super rainy out here the past couple of days, so all I’ve been wanting to do is curl on my couch with a big blanket and some warming comforting foods.

I’ve been having a bit of an obsession with matcha tea lately. I’m usually a big coffee fan, but recently all I want in the mornings is a big hot cup of matcha. The love is real.

I was trying to decide what type of recipes I could create to incorporate matcha into. I thought maybe cookies, or some cheesecake bars, (like these ones, but with matcha) but I ended up deciding on an oatmeal.

Not to say I won’t create other matcha recipes in the future, and if there are any in particular you’d love to see you can let me know if the comments below!

I like to think of this creamy vanilla matcha oatmeal as if a matcha latte made a baby with a bowl of oatmeal. Probably a weird thing to think…but hey, that’s what it tastes like!

This creamy vanilla matcha oatmeal is:

  • Vegan
  • Gluten-free option (*choose gluten-free oats for this)
  • Has just the right caffeine kick from the matcha
  • Loaded with fiber to keep you full all morning

I use steel-cut oats for this recipe cooked on the stove, but you can use quick oats if you prefer and just follow the package directions to cook them. (Though I’d totally recommend trying steel-cut oats if you haven’t already, they’re my FAV!)
