With summer fruit on the way out, I wanted to put a different spin on overnight oats that’s a little more appropriate for fall. This “carrot cake” recipe combines the light sweetness of freshly grated carrots with raisins, pecans, cinnamon, ginger and a touch of pure maple syrup. It’s like eating dessert for breakfast but without the guilt.

I know everyone likes different add-ins in their carrot cake so feel free to stir in a little unsweetened coconut or whatever your favorites might be. If you’re feeling frisky you can also top it with a dollop of coconut whipped cream. It’s ultimate bliss!
