Gluten Free Oatmeal Cakes with Thrive Market

I had a blast sharing some of my favorite gluten free and vegan recipes with Thrive Market recently. These gluten free strawberry banana oatmeal cakes are a great easy vegan recipe to make on Sunday night and have for breakfast all week long. They also make a delicious addition to your weekend brunch, just place them in a bowl with some steamed nut milk and chopped strawberries for a complete upgrade from your average oatmeal!
