I am wondering why oat milk is never mentioned as a option in recipes. I always see soy, almond, cashew or rice.
Is there a reason for this?

This recipe is a very satisfying breakfast for my sweet tooth. I omit the maple syrup and the spinach (since I have salads every day anyway), and top it with coconut, kiwi, pepitas and toasted oats (from FOK’s Southern-Style Banana Pudding Parfaits recipe).
