Carrot Cake Oats

Carrot Cake Oats | Glitter & Grace Blog #oatmeal #carrotcake The minute I came across this creation from one of my favorite bloggers, I knew I had to try it. I’m always looking for creative ways to sneak more fruits and veggies into my meals, but carrots in oatmeal was something that never crossed my mind! I love the sweet and spicy combination of a great carrot cake. These flavors are perfectly replicated in this steamy and filling bowl of oats. This discovery is definitely making my mornings just a little sweeter!

Notes

  • I love this dish topped with a spoonful of peanut butter. Add a splash of maple syrup, too, if you like your oats a little sweeter.
