Carrot Cake Oatmeal

I’m on a quest to find a way to eat vegetables for breakfast. However, I’m not that interested in eating a raw piece of broccoli and I’m so bored of veggie omelets, it’s ridiculous. I’ve also been more interested in eating  oatmeal for breakfast for some reason. Maybe it’s all the Quaker oats commercials that are finally getting to me *tear*. With that being said — veggies in oatmeal — the potential for a gross concoction was definitely expected.

I tried to think of a veggie that would go well with some sweetness and thought of carrots! It’s a perfect way to eat veggies for breakfast, that’s for sure! You really don’t even taste the carrots but you know they are in there, therefore – healthy – TA DA! I also added raisins, coconut, and spices to give it some flavor. I thought about adding walnuts as well, but we didn’t have any so that was nixed, but it’s still an option for when they are available!
