- Place 1/2 of the grated carrots, all of the oats, the raisins, and half of the almond milk in a 12 ounce mason jar. Place the jar in the fridge overnight.
- In the morning, take your mason jar out of the fridge and place in a sauce pan over medium heat along with the remaining almond milk. Stir well and allow to come to a simmer.
- While you are waiting for the oats to simmer make the carrot cake spice by combining all the spices and stirring together with a fork until well combined. Add a teaspoon of the carrot cake spice to the pot along with 1 tsp of honey and stir well.
- Let the oats simmer for about 5-6 minutes or until nicely reduced and bubbly
- Divide into two bowls and top each bowl with half of the greek yogurt, half of the walnuts, and drizzle each bowl with the remaining honey. Enjoy!
How To Make Carrot Cake Overnight Oats
The winter has finally arrived here in Florida! No one could be more excited than I am for the cooler weather. It’s the perfect time to cuddle up with the Kindle, crochet a blanket, finally turn off the air conditioning system (perhaps more than a few days), and have delicious carrot cake overnight oats for breakfast! Since this is also the first week of January we have made a resolution to eat clean for the month so this was the perfect breakfast to get us started on the right foot. Usually overnight oats are cold but I always cook mine in the morning after they chill out overnight in the fridge. Cooking them after everything soaks all night takes about half the time as normal and gives you that wonderful hot steamy bowl of carrot cake overnight oats that you need to make that yummy greek yogurt melt and swirl right into it. This oatmeal recipe is a creamy, dreamy, comforting delight.
If that didn’t make you run to the pantry did I mention that this recipe is also super healthy! It’s completely clean cooking and an incredibly well balanced meal that will keep you full way into an appropriate lunch hour.
Another fantastic idea for these overnight oats is to make them ahead of time for the whole week on Sunday. Each jar makes enough for 2 servings so you and someone you love can both have a bowl. Romance and fiber all in one dish!
I hope you enjoy these oats as much as my husband and I did! They nourished us all week!
