Oat milk soap #2 (or) This shouldn't be so hard...

I thought this post needed alternative titles, a la The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show . I made a second batch of oat milk soap, this time bypassing the scents and colors.  As you can see from the pictures, it still has a funny texture.  Not bad, but not completely smooth, either.  I used oat milk for more than half my liquid this time, adding it at trace and it didn't have the curdled texture at pour.  But it's still puzzling to me.  I've been soaping with milk longer than any other liquid, and oat milk isn't even true milk, but a blend of oats and water.  This shouldn't be complicated!  I'm wondering if the high olive oil amount contributed to the texture?  I will find out, because this oat milk thing hasn't seen the last of me!  The feel of the soap is totally worth it.  And just maybe, someday, I'll master this stuff.  Or weird textures will become my trademark.
