Cozy Carrot Cake Oatmeal


Ingredients

  • makes 2, 10 minutes prep time.
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup light coconut milk, canned
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 cup finely grated carrots (about 2 medium)
  • 4 Medjool dates
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger, ground
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • Suggested toppings
  • Sunflower seed butter or almond butter
  • Raisins
  • Dried mulberries
  • Shredded coconut
  • Chopped walnuts
  • Coconut whipped cream

Instructions

  1. Add oats, milk, grated carrots, vanilla, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg in a small saucepan. Chop the dates finely (I just mashed them with my fingers) and add them to the other ingredients.
  2. Bring to a boil, then let simmer over medium heat for 5 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed. Stir the oats a few times while cooking to avoid sticking to the pan.
  3. Add desired toppings and enjoy!
  4. Notes
  5. You can use maple syrup to taste instead of dates if preferred.
  6. Make sure to shred the carrots very finely! Don’t use a large cheese grater for this one.
