Carrot Cake Oatmeal

Happy Easter!! 

Easter's the best. Spring's just around the corner, and a three day weekend? Yes, please! This year, I've just finished finals and am off to be in nature with my family- and recharge.

Instead of easter cookies, I've been making this carrot cake oatmeal. Takes a quarter of the time, but tastes so good, and you can feel good about having it for breakfast! Win/win/win. 


1 cup rolled oats
2 ½ cups water
1 cup finely grated carrots
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
½ tsp vanilla
¼ tsp ginger
¼ tsp cardamom
pinch of salt
optional- 1 tbsp honey


Add all ingredients to pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer until all the water is absorbed. Top with almond butter, sliced bananas and sprinkle of cinnamon.
