Sorry for the late post and the absence last week, but this recipe will be sure to make up for it. I can assure you this baked oatmeal tastes more like carrot cake than actual carrot cake does! It’s so delicious and can easily pass for a quick, easy, and healthy dessert as well as a nutritious and delicious breakfast. For easy portioning it’s best to divide the oatmeal into 4 ramekins and the oatmeal can be kept in the fridge for up to 3 days and baked whenever, but if serving a crowd a big baking dish might be best. This thing is simply amazing! The flavors are exactly those of the classic carrot cake, but without the guilt. Shredding the carrots in either a food processor or using a cheese grater will provide the right size of carrot pieces you’re looking for so the carrot doesn’t dissolve in the oatmeal and isn’t raw or under cooked either. I highly recommend this recipe for dessert fanatics, people with a sweet tooth, or anyone looking for a new fun way to spice up their lives food wise. I hope you enjoy!

Happy and healthy eating,
