Carrot Cake Oatmeal


I’ve seen different versions of carrot cake oatmeal but have never tried it. I don’t know why I waited so long to have it because it’s amazing!! It tastes like you’re eating dessert for breakfast, which is always great!

Add everything all at once and cook. You can’t get much simpler than that which makes this is my ideal way of cooking in the morning. Choose between adding apple or pineapple to it. The pineapple makes it a bit sweeter, but if you don’t have any around, apples work just as well. Letting it sit after it’s done cooking is key to having a less runny oatmeal. By the way, it smells like cake baking while it’s cooking!
