1 tablespoon vegan butter

1/2 cup maple syrup

1 cup fresh blueberries


  1. *Mix rolled oats, almond milk, salt and cinnamon in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Remove from the refrigerator in the morning. On med low heat, melt vegan butter in a pan. Using a large ice cream scooper, add oats to the pan (1 scoop per patty) and flatten down with the back of the scooper.
  3. When golden brown, flip over with a spatula.
  4. Top with cinnamon, berries and maple syrup. Serve warm.
