These oats taste just like Carrot Cake, only healthier. Super quick to make and double or triple the ingredient quantities for easy breakfasts throughout the week, this is a great breakfast recipe to turn to for those busy mornings. Make the night before for a fuss free tasty breakfast the following day.
Tips for making this recipe
- Avoid using quick oats. These oats are finer in consistency which means they soak up the liquid faster and as a result speeds up the process, leading to a dried out oat mix.
- Double or triple the ingredient quantities. This way you get more tasty breakfasts for minimal effort throughout the week.
- Store the overnight oats in the fridge. You want to store your overnight oats in the fridge rather than at an ambient room temperature.
- Use a food processor. If you have one, use a food processor for speed when grating the carrot(s). Otherwise a normal grater will work just as well.
The great thing about this recipe is how adaptable it is. Whilst this one is carrot cake why not mix it up a little and add whatever flavour combination you have handy in the kitchen:
- Chocolate chips
- Dried fruit or nuts
- Raspberries, blackberries or grated apple
- Other grated vegetables like courgette
- Try using the same recipe but cooking it out on the hob top to create carrot cake porridge instead
