Was looking at the list of overnight oats on buzzfeed and saw there was one for carrot cake overnight oats. However I was disappointed to see it was overnight oats with 1/2 carrot cake muffin on the top. So I set about making a carrot cake overnight oats and it was delicious. I have now made two versions one with added cashews to the soaking mixture. The top one I served with flaked almonds and ready to eat apricots and second one I served with banana and coconut.
Put in a dish
1/2 cup oats
1 1/2 tsp flax seed
1/2 tsp mixed spice
1 cup soya milk
1 small carrot grated
1 tbsp sweet freedom
2 tbsp raisins
1 - 2 tbsp cashews (optional)
Mix and leave in fridge overnight
In the morning I add extra soya milk and top which toppings to suit. I have tried banana and coconut and flaked almonds and ready to eat apricots. Serve either cold or warm up in the microwave to serve.
Other options I fancy trying
adding some nuts such as walnuts, pecans, macadamia nuts, chopped hazelnuts,cashews
adding other fruit such as pineapple pieces or a chopped apple
using other milks such as almond, vanilla soya milk, hazelnut or coconut milks
Will definitely do this one again and try some of the variations. I may even have it for a dessert or snack if I half the recipe. I think walnuts would make it more carrot cake like, but as I didnt' have any I used cashews.
Another overnight oats recipe I've done since this one is a Christmas style overnight oats and there will be more to come. I plan to do a new overnight oats every week, probably to be posted on a Friday. My other overnight oats recipes.
