Happy St. Patty’s Day!
I may not be Irish, but I like to be festive for the holidays. Especially when it involves incorporating the color green.
Now as a vegan, I am not a lover of the corned beef tradition. Cabbage meh, not so much. But Irish Soda Bread, oh man I could go for a good hunk of that right now. Unfortunately, the traditional Irish soda bread contains buttermilk and eggs.
For breakfast today, I decided to make my own version in the form of oatmeal. For those of you who do not know me well, I am the oatmeal queen. I am always experimenting in the kitchen in the morning creating a delicious bowl of oatmeal.
Or in this case, a baked oat-cake.
