Carrot Cake Oatmeal

Yesterday I said I would be making carrot cake oatmeal, so here it is! I wanted to make sure it wouldn’t be too sweet/bland & I was successful! This is a pretty similar recipe to my zucchini oats but with several changed ingredients. I love using bananas as a sweetener in my recipes so that didn’t change!

I’m staying home to rest today, so no church. Also, I’m missing my last resistance circuit & LISS for the week ๐Ÿ˜ฆ This mean I’ll be repeating week 8 when I get back on BBG workouts. I’m trying not to be too hard on myself & allow rest! I was planning on doing the circuit at home but I don’t want to get a dry socket from my blood clot bursting ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I’ll probably doing some simple ab exercises at home though!

Prep Time: 1 minute
Cook Time: 4 minutes
Serving Size: 1

Ingredients:
10 baby carrots
1 banana
1/2 apple, peeled and cored
1/8 cup almond milk

1/3 cup raw oats
3/4 cup water
2 whole eggs (omit yolks if desired)
1 scoop protein powder of choice
1/2 tsp coconut sugar
Sprinkle of cinnamon
Sprinkle of vanilla extract
Desired oatmeal toppings (fruit, seeds, nuts)

I added 1/2 a banana on top, cacao nibs, sliced almonds & pumpkin seeds. The last 3 which I can’t eat right now…but I put it on to make it look nicer! My dad ended up scooping off the top of my oatmeal & eating all the seeds/nutsย for me ๐Ÿ˜›

Directions:
1. Put 1 banana, 10 baby carrots, 1/2 apple & 1/8 cup almond milk into your blender & blend well
2.ย Add 1/2 cup raw oats & 3/4 cup water into your cooker on the stove on medium heat
3. Whenย the oats simmer (which wonโ€™t take long), mix it around untilย the water is almost all absorbed by the oats
4. Then add in your twoย raw eggs & slowly stir into oatmeal for 2 minutes
5. When the eggs look cooked, turn downย to low heat (it should be a bit yellow-ish from the yolks)
6. Add in your carrot-banana-apple mixย & continue to stir slowly for 1 minute
7. Add in your 1 scoop protein powder, 1/2 tsp coconut sugar, cinnamon & vanilla extract
8. Continue to stir for 30 seconds until it’s all mixed.

Now, pour it into a bowl &ย top it with your favorite fruits or toppings! I always add bananas on top of my oatmeal because it’s necessary to me haha! I love bananas.
