Recipe Ingredients for Carrot Cake Oatmeal

2 cups cooked steel cut oats
1 large carrot, julienned (we like the texture of thicker juliennes, but a fine shred would work, too)
1/2 cup water, plus more as needed
1/4 cup raisins
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 pinch cloves
1/4 cup Cream Cheese Whipped
2 tablespoons maple syrup

Recipe Directions for Carrot Cake Oatmeal

  1. In a medium saucepan, heat cup water to boiling. Add julienned carrots, turn down heat to medium-low, and cook carrots until soft, about 10 minutes.

  2. Stir cooked oats and raisins into carrots until oats have been heated through. Add vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves. Cook an additional five minutes, adding more water if the oats get too thick. Remove from heat. (We stirred in cup ground flaxseeds and 2 tablespoons chia seeds for a health boost.)

  3. In a small bowl, stir cream cheese until smooth (we used a fork). Stir in maple syrup.

  4. Serve oats in bowls, top each with about 2 tablespoons of cream cheese and garnish with fresh pineapple, toasted walnuts, more raisins and ground cinnamon. Add agave, honey or maple syrup for sweetness.
