Carrot Cake Overnight Oats

Good morning people of earth. How goes life?

Springtime is in full effect here in sunny Florida. So, in the spirit of spring, I thought I would share a new overnight oats recipe with you that's based on a springtime dessert staple: carrot cake.

Enjoy!

~ Ingredients ~

1/2 c. rolled oats
1/2 c. unsweetened almond milk (or your milk of choice)
1 tsp. chia seed (optional)
1 tsp. flax seed (optional)
1/4 c. non-fat plain greek yogurt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. ginger
1/8 tsp. cloves
2 Tbsp. grated carrots
1 Tbsp. unsweetened coconut flakes
2 packets stevia

~ Directions ~

Combine all ingredients in a mason jar or other sealed container. Let set in the refrigerator overnight, or at least for a few hours before enjoying.


Oats will keep in a sealed container for several days, so you are OK to prepare the beginning of the week for your weekday breakfasts. I always prepare 5 days worth of overnight oats on Sunday afternoon so I have a quick grab-and-go breakfast for the busy weekdays.
