Dessert for breakfast might seem like a naughty way to start your day, but not when you’re talking about this Carrot Cake Overnight Oatmeal – it’s full of nutritional goodness! A satisfying breakfast packed full of chia seeds for protein & omega 3 fats, oats for fiber and slow-release carbs (hello flat belly!), apple and raisins for natural sweetness, and lots of warming spices like cinnamon, ginger and turmeric. An easy festive breakfast for Easter – or any time of the year!

 

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cup almond milk, unsweetened (or other non-dairy milk of your choice)
  • 1 cup raw rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 small carrot, shredded
  • 1 small handful raisins
  • 1 large sweet apple, sliced or cubed
  • Cinnamon & sea salt, to taste
  • Optional: ginger, turmeric & black pepper
  • Toppings: non-dairy yogurt, nuts or seeds, granola… (I used coconut yogurt, sprouted walnuts & ALL GOOD power breakfast muesli granola)

Instructions

  1. Put the rolled oats and chia seeds in two bowls or mason jars.
  2. Add cinnamon and sea salt to taste. Stir well with a spoon. If you like, you can add some grated ginger, turmeric and black pepper too.
  3. Add the shredded carrot, raisins and apple, and then pour the almond milk on top.
  4. Now you could add your other toppings, but I like to add these in the morning so they stay nice & crunchy. I used coconut yogurt, roughly chopped sprouted walnuts, and ALL GOOD power breakfast muesli granola.
