Cookie Dough Oatmeal (Vegan)

Another quote from a great 90s sitcom to follow-up the Seinfeld quote from Monday:


Ross: It tastes like feet!
Joey Tribbiani: Well, I like it.
Ross: Are you kidding?
Joey Tribbiani: I mean, what’s not to like? Custard, good. Jam, good. Meat, good!
(from Friends Thanksgiving episode in 1999, Ross and Joey talking about Rachel’s meat trifle)

Oatmeal, good.
Cookie dough, good
Together?  Good.
What’s not to like?
This recipe started with my version of the Cookie Dough Dip from Peas and Thank You.

Cookie Dough Topping

(inspired by Peas and Thank You)

  • 1 c. raw cashews
  • 2 T. almond butter
  • 2 T. maple syrup
  • 2 T agave
  • 1 T. nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 t. sea salt
  • 1/2 t. vanilla extract
  • 4 T. almond milk
  • 1/4 c. dark chocolate chips
  1. Combine cashews, almond butter, maple syrup, agave, nutritional yeast, salt and vanilla in a blender or food processor and blend to combine.
  2. Add almond milk slowly, until the mixture reaches a peanut butter like consistency.
  3. Stir in chocolate chips.

This recipe would also be good with peanut butter in place of the almond butter, that is if you like peanut butter cookie dough.  Mmmmmm.

I made it one night, planning on using it for a dip.  The next morning, however, as I looked at my very plain bowl of steel cut oats, I felt inspired to go a little crazy.  Don’t tell me my life isn’t exciting.
Oatmeal, meet faux cookie dough.  They liked each other a lot.  They may have even gotten a room.
What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever used as an oatmeal topping?
