Everybody always asks me if it’s hard to be vegan in Japan but since I started working at HealthyTOKYO, it’s been so much easier because of the access to healthy, vegan food! Aside from the rolled oats, all of the ingredients in this recipe are available on our online store. Consider us a one stop shop for all your vegan matcha oatmeal needs!
Thanks to one of our very special HealthyTOKYO members ‘L’, I was inspired to post this recipe for vegan matcha oatmeal! Since I started here, I have got into the habit of making oatmeal for David every morning. He never used to consider adding in matcha to his oatmeal so I thought I’d introduce him to it! Originally, it was just a quick throw-together meal but now it’s a regular request on his oatmeal rotation!
This recipe by itself is already wholesome and delicious but it’s made even more amazing with the addition of Norma’s Matcha Granola! You definitely don’t want to skip this step when making this vegan matcha oatmeal for brekkie!
Yield: 1 serve
1/2 cup of rolled oats
1 cup of the plant based milk of your choice (I used Provamel Organic Oat Drink)
Apple sweetener (to taste) (I used Dolcedi’ – Natural Low-Glycemic Sweetener From Organic Apples)
1 tsp of Organic Matcha No. 2 Energy
2 tbsp of Norma’s Matcha Granola
(optional) an extra swirl of apple sweetener
- Pour the rolled oats and milk into a saucepan
- Add the apple sweetener
- Heat on low heat, stirring constantly
- Once most of the water has been absorbed or the oatmeal has reached your desired consistency, pour into a bowl
- Sprinkle the matcha powder evenly and stir it in thoroughly, (until it becomes a gorgeous, green color)
- Sprinkle on some of Norma’s Matcha Granola
- Add a final swirl of apple sweetener (if you wish)
I hope you enjoy this porridge as much as David does! (In Australia we call oatmeal, porridge). If you do try this recipe, I would love it if you tell me what you think! I am nowhere near as good a cook as Norma, but hopefully I’ll get close someday! Follow HealthyTOKYO and tag us in your photos! Hashtag #HealthyTOKYO on Instagram so I can see it!
This matcha gives you energy for the most important meal of the day!
