Carrot Cake Oatmeal

Overnight oatmeal is a bandwagon you want to be on, my friend. It’s a flexible concept–whatever your preferred oats, your preferred milk…it’ll work. This carrot cake inspired combo knocked our socks off, but place around with your favorite fruits, nuts and spices to make it your own. It keeps well for about a week, so you can mix up a big batch, portion it off into single-serving containers, and have breakfast ready in the time it takes to warm it up all week long.

Ingredients

  • 1 large carrot, shredded
  • 3 Tbsp. unsweetened coconut, shredded or flaked
  • 1 cup rolled or instant steel cut oats
  • 1½ cup skim milk
  • 2 Tbsp. pecans, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. raisins
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ⅛ tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. ground flax
  • 1 Tbsp. maple syrup

Directions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a container. Refrigerate overnight.
  2. Heat in microwave the next morning, 1-2 minutes per serving.

Cut the Sugar, Not the Flavor
