Carrot Cake Overnight Oatmeal


I know dessert for breakfast might seem like a naughty way to start your day but I promise you, this creamy Carrot Cake Overnight Oatmeal is packed full of goodness! It has everything I want in a satisfying breakfast: 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 if you ask me!

Carrot Cake Overnight Oatmeal

SERVES: 2 people

EQUIPMENT: 2 bowls or small mason jars (to take your oatmeal with you on the go)


1 ½ cup almond milk, unsweetened (or other non-dairy milk of your choice)
1 cup 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)


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.

Dear Julie, thank you so much for this recipe. I cannot wait to try it, so I'll set it up tonight for tomorrow morning :-)

I love to start my day with oats...usually I combine dry rolled oats with a sliced frozen banana, frozen blueberries, ground chia or flax seeds, toasted walnuts (or roasted hazelnuts), sunflower seeds, dried currants, soy milk, grape or pomegranate juice, and cinnamon all in one bowl, and microwave it for about 3 min. This is, more or less, following a recipe by fantastic Dr. Joel Fuhrman.
