Glad it’s here, but I always wish it was Wednesday instead.
At least I got to try a new breakfast this morning!
I had never tried this idea of “carrot cake oatmeal” before and I decided it was time.
I was going to follow Diana’s recipe/method, but I ended up taking hers and using what I had on hand (i.e., no raisins or dates!).
I also just cooked mine on the stove instead of using the crock pot this time.
My oatmeal base is:
- 1 cup steel cut oats
- 1 can crushed pineapple
- 2 carrots, peeled and grated
- pinch salt
- ground ginger
I cooked this mixture on the stove until the oats cooked through (about 10-15 minutes simmering).
I cooked the entire batch Sunday afternoon, let it cool, then put it in the fridge for this week.
Today, I just took out one serving, added a little water and heated it up in the microwave.
Then I stirred in more cinnamon :) and topped it with some pecans and unsweetened coconut.
Too bad I didn’t have the stuff to make some “healthy” icing!
What dessert do you like to have for breakfast?
