Are savory oats good for you?
They can be, meaning that hot cereals, like oatmeal, go from healthy to unhealthy, depending on what you put in them. For example, if you put lots of fats in it – think olive oil, tahini, and avocado – then there’s the possibility that it’s a bit too fatty for one sitting.
This isn’t to say that you can have some good, healthy fats. You can and should.

Vegan Savory Oatmeal FAQ
Oatmeal isn’t just good for vegans. It’s good for everyone. It contains many nutrients, including vitamin B1, copper, phosphorus, and manganese, according to WebMD. It also has only 95 calories per serving and comes with 5 grams of protein.
Many of us grew up eating oatmeal with just a bit of brown sugar, butter, and milk. Fortunately, there are now vegan versions of the butter and milk, which taste so good in your morning oatmeal that you won’t miss the fruit. It’s also possible to make a simple savory oatmeal by adding some white pepper, garlic, and a pinch of salt to go along with the vegan butter and milk.
Speaking of savory oatmeal… If you don’t want fruit or are out, you can make your morning oats savory instead by adding ingredients like nutritional yeast, garlic, onions, spinach leaves, cherry tomatoes, black beans, and other ingredients. Top with a bit or avocado or vegan yogurt for a tasty alternative to fruit-topped oatmeal.
