Carrot Cake Overnight Oats Recipe

10 ingredients · 8 hours · 1 serving

The flavors of carrot cake are mutually beneficial when they are combined together. Sweet and crunchy carrots, oats, chia seeds, cinnamon, ground ginger, unsweetened almond milk, maple syrup, unsweetened coconut yogurt, and walnuts. I have previously taken a riff from my favorite springtime dessert and turned Carrot Cake into healthy overnight oats. Though most fans of overnight oats prefer to eat them chilled, you can absolutely warm up these carrot cake overnight oats. Just heat them in the microwave for 30–60 seconds, stirring frequently, or directly in a small saucepan on the stove until heated and you can even add cacao nibs to your liking.

Ingredients:

  • 41 grams Oats (rolled)
  • 1/4 Carrot (medium, grated)
  • 12 grams Chia Seeds
  • 650 milligrams Cinnamon
  • 225 milligrams Ground Ginger
  • 150 milliliters Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 20 grams Maple Syrup
  • 14 grams Unsweetened Coconut Yogurt
  • 8 grams Walnuts (roughly chopped)
  • Sprinkle of Cacao Nibs

Directions:

  1. Add the oats, grated carrot, chia seeds, cinnamon, ground ginger, almond milk and maple syrup to a mixing bowl. Mix well. Cover and place in the fridge overnight, or for at least 8 hours.
  2. Remove the oats from the fridge and divide them into jars. Top with yogurt, walnuts and cacao nibs. Enjoy!
