Carrot Cake Oatmeal

IMG_1309Hey 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…

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!
