Carrot Cake Oatmeal

A full serving of veggies to start the day? Sounds good to me! This Carrot Cake Oatmeal recipe is the perfect hearty and healthy breakfast. 

I love adding veggies into meals in an unconventional way. Cakes, cookies, bread, waffles, and oats. We all could probably add more veggies into our diet, and mixing them with all kinds of meals is a great way to do that.

Carrot Cake Oatmeal Toppings

You can add whatever your heart desires. Some of my favorite toppings are:

  • walnuts
  • pecans
  • raisins
  • toasted coconut chips or shredded coconut flakes
  • chia seeds
  • flaxseeds
  • hempseeds

Add as little or as much as you want! If you like your oats a bit sweeter, you can add a bit of honey, maple syrup, sugar, or stevia – depending on your preferences.

I usually swirl in some plain yogurt for protein and creaminess. If you enjoy carrot cake, you will go absolutely crazy for this bowl of oatmeal.

This oatmeal is loaded with nutrients and will keep you full for hours – which is perfect for any busy person on the go. It’s also a perfect warming breakfast on chilly winter days.
