Carrot Cake Overnight Oats

Saw this recipe from Shuangy’s Kitchen Sink on her instagram, and knew I had to try it out. I’m not a huge cake fan, but love the flavors of carrot cake, so I enjoyed this overnight oats even more than real carrot cake! 

Here’s Shuangy’s recipe (my edits are in red):

Carrot Cake Overnight Oats

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup cashew milk (I used regular milk, but you could sub any milk alternative)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (optional –you could definitely use less than this, it’s very sweet with only 1 tbsp. Going to try 1 tsp next time)
  • 2 tbsp grated carrots
  • 1 tsp pumpkin spice and a pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds and/or ground flax seeds
  • 1 handful of raisins
  • your favorite toppings some ideas: (handful of chopped walnuts or almond butter, grated carrots, hemp seeds, cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice )

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Mix milk, vanilla, maple syrup, pumpkin pie spice and salt together. Add oats, seeds, grated carrots and raisins. Add your favorite toppings (I used a handful of chopped walnuts)
  2. Let sit at least four hours or over night. Heat it up or eat it cold in the morning (I ate it cold and it was delicious)!
