Carrot Cake Oats

As much as I love overnight oats, chia pudding, or even just a big bowl of fresh fruit to start my day, my favourite breakfast will always be a big bowl of oats! It’s delicious, filling, and so comforting.  I love just plain oats topped with berries, banana or some nuts, but I thought I’d mix it up and see if I could add some vegetables into my morning.  Voilà, carrot cake oats were born…and who doesn’t like carrot cake?!
