Carrot Cake Oatmeal

This has been my favorite breakfast the past few days! the carrots make it filling and ah it gives your hearts a big hug in the morning that warms your insides and keeps you relaxed.

It's quick and easy. I used steel-cut oats because I find them more filling and I like the creamy texture. However, feel free to replace them with old fashion oats or any other grain that you have on hand.


Carrot Cake Oatmeal


  • 1/2 cup steel-cut oats (or 1 cup old fashion oats)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup shredded carrots - about 1 medium carrot
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp ginger powder
  • sweetener of choice /1 tbsp date molasses would go well*

*I found it unnecessary to add a sweetener, but that'll depend on your carrots and taste.


  1. Soak the steel-cut oats for 20 minutes or overnight (optional) then drain
  2. Add water then cook on low heat 
  3. Add the spices 
  4. Ad the carrots whenever you feel like it. At the beginning, if you like your carrots creamier or after you turn off the heat if you want them a little crunchy
  5. Cook until all the liquid is absorbed
  6. Taste and add your sweetener accordingly
  7. Toppings: Tahini, pepitas, pecans, and cacao nibs
