There are so many ways to make oatmeal. But if you are a carrot cake lover like myself this easy recipe will help you get in a Fabulously healthy breakfast that tastes like dessert; but without all the added fat and calories.
Here’s what you will need:
- Quick Oats (I prefer Oat Revolution Steel Cut Classic Oats)
- Chopped Pecans
- Non-Fat Vanilla Greek Yogurt
- Carrot Slices
- Vanilla Extract
I have my own food stash at work so I don’t have to lug all this stuff around with me every day. It’s so simple and takes only 5 minutes.
Step 1. Pull a packet of the oatmeal out of the box, carefully open it and put contents into a microwave safe bowl
Step 2. Use the pouch that the oatmeal was packaged in to measure the correct amount of water and add to bowl.
Step 3. Add 1/4 cup of carrots plus vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg to taste
Step 4. Microwave on High for 2 Minutes
Step 5. Add 1 Tbsp of raisins, 5 pecan halves and 1 tsp of honey to hot cereal
Step 6. Add 2 Tbsp of non-fat Greek Vanilla Yogurt to the top
Mix all ingredients together and enjoy.
