I first started making oat milk when Jonas was 10 months old and I was looking for ways to incorporate more iron into his diet. We have been working hard to cut down the waste we create in our home and this oat milk recipe has been a simple and inexpensive staple on our journey. You can use an unsweetened version in sauces, modify this version to be chocolate by adding cocoa powder, or use it in any way that you would use store bought milk!
We make this recipe using either rolled oats or steel cut oats.
Please note that steel cut oats contain more iron and might be a better option if nutrition is your goal!
1 cup oats
3 cups water
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
Blend oats and water until smooth. If you have a high powered blender and like thick milk you're done! Otherwise, strain through cheesecloth before adding sweetener for a thinner milk.
