Carrot Cake Overnight Oats

February 29, 2016

Have dessert for breakfast with these secretly healthy Carrot Cake Overnight Oats!

I’ve just found my new favourite flavour of Overnight Oats: Carrot Cake. Shredded carrots combine with plump raisins, fragrant cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg, and mix together with oats and chia seeds to make Carrot Cake Overnight Oats!

Carrot Cake for breakfast?! There’s nothing better. And these oats are actually healthy – only sweetened with a tablespoon of maple syrup. 

I used to be an Overnight Oats hater until I tried this recipe!

Overnight Oats are the best thing that’s ever happened to my breakfasts. Seriously. I made overnight oats for the first time last month and was blown away by how easy and delicious they are. I love that you can throw the mason jar in your bag and bring breakfast to work. If I’ve slept in or have an early meeting, I’ll bring Overnight Oats to work and chow them at my desk.

The options are endless with this recipe – substitute craisins for the raisins. Add more or less cinnamon, as you like. Leave out the maple syrup entirely, or add a bit more if you’ve got a raging sweet tooth 😉

But whatever you do – try Carrot Cake Overnight Oats! Your tummy will thank you.

Shredded carrots, plump raisins, sweet spices combine with oatmeal and chia seeds to make Carrot Cake Overnight Oats!
