Like many other people in the world, I’ve been stuck in the house and indulging way too much lately. This Dairy Free Oatmeal Bowl is a delicious treat for breakfast (or anytime, really), and it tastes like an indulgent treat while remaining pretty healthy. If you’d like you can double, triple, or quadruple the oats and refrigerate for use later throughout the week.
