Loaded with grated carrots, raisins, and cinnamon these sweet and creamy carrot cake overnight oats taste like cake for breakfast! These take 5 minutes to come together and can be meal prepped for the entire week (gluten free, can be easily made vegan).
Stir together 1 cup rolled oats, ½ cup shredded carrot, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg, ¼ cup raisins, 1 tablespoon chia seeds, ¼ cup Greek yogurt, 1 cup milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and ¼ cup honey in a medium mixing bowl with a lid.
Close the lid and refrigerate overnight or for at least 4 hours. If the oats are too thick, stir some more milk to thin them down.
Transfer the overnight oats to 2 serving bowls and top with shredded carrots and sprinkle a little ground cinnamon on top. Serve chilled or heat in a microwave and serve warm.
Nuts & seeds like toasted almonds, walnuts, pine nuts, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, etc.
Granola of your choice.
Coconut flakes, cocoa bibs, chocolate chunks.
Nut Butter like almond or peanut butter.
A dollop of whipped cream cheese is one of my fav toppings.
