Oatmeal Breakfast Dairy-Free

So easy to make oatmeal dairy-free and still delicious.

Makes for a hearty breakfast that keeps the kiddos full until lunch.

Sometimes I feel guilty for being so bland.

I really do.

But nine years into food allergies, one lesson I’ve learned is to keep things simple.

That’s how I survive this intense lifestyle.

So I snapped a picture of one of the boys’ favorite breakfasts the other day.

It’s basic oatmeal with brown sugar and dairy-free butter.

And on a really good day, we add cinnamon and raisins to the mix.


We have actually matured in our oatmeal pursuits over the years.

From instant to quick to old fashioned and now onto steel cut, we absolutely love the chewiness of steel cut oats.

They take more time to cook, but they definitely keep the kids full until lunch.

Still also finding use for quick oats, though…

we make no-bake treats like energy bars and protein bars for easier breakfast options.

Interestingly enough, my youngest was actually allergic to oats as a baby.

The baby cereals gave him a raw bottom, and Aveeno with oatmeal caused a horrible reaction.

He tested allergic for sure.

But eventually he could eat oats, thank goodness.

And now it’s his favorite breakfast.

How do you like to eat your dairy-free oatmeal, we’d love to hear!
