What’s In This Oat Milk Mac and Cheese Recipe?

Be sure to visit the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  • Oat Milk: which you can make yourself with some water and old fashioned oats, or use store-bought. If you don’t want to make oat milk yourself, unsweetened oat milk has the perfect texture for this mac!
  • Macaroni Noodles
  • Olive Oil
  • Mustard Powder: for a wonderful sharp flavor, I like this mustard powder best!
  • Salt: We like to use pink Himalayan sea salt.
  • Black Pepper: like salt, I only use really good pepper corns, I like tellicherry pepper corns because they have a fresh spicy taste when they are ground.  There are a lot of varieties but I like tellicherry peppercorns best.
  • Cheddar or Melty Cheese: You can use cheddar, shredded cheese blends, or even creamy Velveeta for this recipe, or another melty cheese alternative.  You can use a plant-based cheese for a vegan substitute as well.
  • Parmesan Cheese: for a bright and sharp finish on this mac!  I love adding this parmesan cheese to my mac and cheese recipes to give it that little extra kick of flavor.

Dietary Modifications

  • To make this recipe gluten free, Make sure the oats you are using are certified gluten free. While oats are naturally gluten free, there can be cross-contamination during processing, so always make sure your oats have the Certified GF stamp on the packaging if you must avoid wheat.
