How about oatmeal? I happen to enjoy a good bowl of mush every now and then – steel-cut or regular rolled. But baked oatmeal…that’s a luxury. I’ll make it every now and then, because it’s truly wonderful, but I can’t get too addicted. Carbs and all that. Anyway, I love it when we can flavor things differently. I have a killer recipe, passed down through our family, for regular baked oatmeal. But this carrot cake oatmeal from Green Kitchen Stories is mighty fine. Give it a go.
I love all the spices and carrot = healthy, right? Carrots for breakfast?! Yay!! And it really does taste like carrot cake. It’s only missing the cream cheese frosting, and I’m sure you could whip up a batch if it’s your thing. Probably not for breakfast, though…let’s not go overboard.
The crunchy seed & nut topping glazed in maple is my favorite part. Joshua loved this stuff.
