1 package Dr. Praeger’s Oaties, any flavor

1 package plain whole-grain or soy-free tempeh

2 tbsp olive oil or avocado oil + more for coating the pan

2 tbsp tamari (gluten-free soy sauce) or coconut aminos

1 tbsp real maple syrup + more for serving

1/2 tsp smoked paprika

¼ tsp garlic powder

¼ tsp onion powder


  1. Cook Dr. Praeger’s Oaties according to package instructions. Set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, slice the tempeh and set in a shallow dish like a tupperware. Whisk together the remaining ingredients, and pour over the tempeh . Marinate for 10 minutes, flipping the tempeh halfway through to evenly coat.
  3. Heat a non-stick or cast iron frying pan over medium heat. Transfer the tempeh to the frying pan and arrange into an even layer. Pour any remaining marinade over the tempeh. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until lightly caramelized.
  4. Serve tempeh bac’n & oaties alongside your favorite breakfast accompaniments, such as scrambled eggs, sauteed kale, fruit, or just as-is with Dr. Praeger’s Oaties.
