    Super Easy & Healthy Vegan Turmeric “Golden Milk” Oatmeal BakeTurmeric "Golden Milk" Oatmeal Bake

    It is safe to say that the turmeric trend is here to stay another here my friends.

    Why is everyone crazy about turmeric you may ask? Not going to lie, I questioned it when I started hearing more and more about this superfood trend last year. Then after doing some research, asking a few of my RD friends and testing it for myself, I started to believe the hype.

    It is a natural anti-inflammatory spice. In fact it is so anti-inflammatory, it matches the effectiveness of some anti-inflammatory drugs. So crazy, right? Turmeric is also a great source of antioxidants, lowers risk of heart disease, help prevent cancer and so on. You can definitely do a ton more research on why turmeric is good for you, but those are a few of my personal reasons of why I use it.

    I have made Golden Milk a handful of times (nut milk mixed with turmeric, honey, etc.) as well as Golden Milk Pancakes. When I’m not looking for something on the sweeter side, I also roast veggies with garlic, turmeric and avocado oil. Such a deliciously easy way to sneak more of the spice in. Just be careful as it stains EVERYTHING. My hands, tupperware, etc all have had turmeric stains (oops).

    This Turmeric “Golden Milk” Oatmeal Bake is my latest favorite turmeric recipe. It is such a wholesome and delicious breakfast and it is made with minimal ingredients. Doesn’t hurt that it is also plant-based and gluten free-friendly too.

    Did I mention how easy it is? Just throw all the ingredients into a bowl, mix it up then bake it in the oven. It is another perfect dish to prep on Sunday’s to have for the breakfast for the week. If you prefer it warm, it is easy to heat up in the morning or just eat it cold.

    I also pair mine with yogurt, some nut butter and seeds. You babes are going to love it! This is my first oatmeal bake in quite some time. If you want to have a good laugh, check out the photos of these two oatmeal bakes from way back when. The recipes are delicious but I should update those photos soon 🙂

    The bright yellow of this is so pretty, and I did not know that Turmeric is as anti-inflammatory as some drugs! That is incredible!

    Made this in about 5 minutes this morning. Was more of a cinnamon color than yellow. It is absolutely delicious. Love the hint of ginger and nut butter every bite has. Great recipe !

    I’ve been making this recipe regularly for the last 2 years (the header on my printed copy says 4 April 17!). Lately it’s every other week. I use 3/4 cup of coconut milk and the rest full cream milk, then drizzle coconut milk over it before I eat it – warmed up, it tastes almost like a self-saucing pudding. I use natural peanut butter as the nut butter. It’s the most filling and delicious breakfast in my rotation. My pre-schooler loves it too 🙂
