Hey there– It’s Saturday. So go on. Take 5 minutes longer getting your morning oatmeal ready. This is a hot, comfy bowl of breakfast that tastes just a little bit like an early dessert. And you’re getting your veggies first thing in the morning! I think you’ll like it…
CARROT CAKE OATMEAL
1/3 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup grated carrot
a couple shakes of salt
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (optional*)
1 tab. maple syrup or brown sugar
2/3 cup water
1 tab. currants (or raisins)
2 tab. pecans, chopped
a dollop of yogurt
Combine the oats, grated carrot, salt, cinnamon, maple syrup and water in a bowl. Put on a top and microwave it all up for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes (or simmer it on the stove top for about 5).
Then drop on the currants, pecans and a splash of yogurt. Breakfast!
