Spiced Carrot cake oatmeal

Spiced Carrot cake oatmeal

Carrot cake oatmeal is one of my favourite breakfasts to make because it combines a healthy breakfast with a dessert. If you love carrot cake, you’re going to really enjoy this recipe! It contains all of the spice and everything nice. 🙂

The grated carrot in these oats help to bulk up your bowl, add extra nutrients and also make this into a legit carrot cake batter-like mix.

These oats are super simple to make. All you need is 6 ingredients and 10 minutes.

You can eat these hot or cold. For a cosy autumn-y breakfast I’d go with a hot steaming bowl of this oatmeal. To eat the oats like a summery dessert, try them cold as overnight oats, maybe with some vanilla greek yoghurt. DE-lish!

  • bowl
  • microwave/saucepan

  • grater


  • 40 g oats
  • 20 g whole chia seeds (optional – adds extra fibre and bulk)
  • 1 small grated carrot

  • 1 tsp maple syrup for topping


  • Combine all ingredients in a saucepan on medium heat
  • Stir frequently until the oats and chia seeds swell and cook
  • Add more liquid if you prefer a thinner consistency. I like mine quite thick and batter-like

  • If you want these cold, combine all ingredients (no need to cook), store in the fridge for a couple of hours and enjoy as overnight oats or as a healthy dessert
