Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal


Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal…need I say more? I didn’t think so. This baked oatmeal recipe will rock your world. It feels a little bit wrong but tastes a whole lotta right. It’s like eating dessert for breakfast but totally allowed because it is in fact breakfast, not dessert. It’s not like you have to let your family in on the little secret that it’s actually good for you–go ahead, let them think you went a little cuckoo. You will get total mom points but the joke will be on them. 🙂 When I have a little extra time in the morning, I like to put a piece of Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal in a bowl, heat it up, and serve it with a splash of warm milk. Seriously, it is heavenly–especially when you can enjoy it with a cup of warm coffee. It may even be worth setting your alarm a little extra early for!
