CARROT CAKE OVERNIGHT OATS

Perfect carrot cake overnight oats made the night before and left to sit overnight so it’s ready as soon as you get up!

Well, I thought it’s about time I shared my carrot cake overnight oats with you! They are so delicious, and a healthy way to have carrot cake for breakfast. I love the texture of quick oats in this, but if you prefer you can substitute rolled oats, just adjust the liquids as needed. With local carrots at the market, I can’t wait to make this for breakfast again!

And as you’ll notice in the pictures it stores so well in a pint-sized jar which is how I love to store it in the fridge and, bonus points, you don’t even need a bowl in the morning. I am all for saving dishes!
