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 😦 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 😦 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/nuts for me 😛

Directions:
1. Put 1 banana, 10 baby carrots, 1/2 apple & 1/8 cup almond milk into your blender & blend well
2. Add 1/2 cup raw oats & 3/4 cup water into your cooker on the stove on medium heat
3. When the oats simmer (which won’t take long), mix it around until the water is almost all absorbed by the oats
4. Then add in your two raw eggs & slowly stir into oatmeal for 2 minutes
5. When the eggs look cooked, turn down to low heat (it should be a bit yellow-ish from the yolks)
6. Add in your carrot-banana-apple mix & 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 & 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.
