Cake for Breakfast? You can with this carrot cake oatmeal!

I can remember thinking when I was a kid how amazing it would to be an adult and get to eat whatever I wanted whenever I wanted. Cake for breakfast was one of the few treats I can remember REALLY loving.

“I’m going to eat cake for breakfast everyday!” is something I am sure I uttered on more than one ocassion.

Of course when I became an adult I realized that was not really sustainable nor was it something that I really wanted to do. After a few breakfast cakes , I knew the game was up. But, the breakfast quest was still one I had to fight.

Instead of eating an actual cake for breakfast why not try this breakfast idea instead? It takes all the components of carrot cake, minus the sugar and flour to make a yummy bowl of carrot cake oats.

This recipe can be made vegan by switching out the milk for your favorite non-dairy variety. You can also make the oatmeal in advance and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamon powder
  • pinch of clove powder
  • For Toppings:
  • Banana, peanut butter, raisins, and almonds

Instructions

Notes

If you have nut allergies you could substitute for a different non-nut butter like sunflower butter. Use shredded coconut instead of almonds for topping or leave it off completely.
