These carrot cake overnight oats are truly a breakfast treat. Not only are they packed with whole grains and fiber, but they taste just like carrot cake thanks to shredded carrots, cinnamon and allspice.
“I was looking for some new overnight oat ideas and this one is so good, will definitely become a regular recipe! I don’t like super sweet things in the morning so I actually omitted the maple syrup altogether, and found it was still enough with the vanilla and spices. Served it with a vegan vanilla coconut yoghurt and topped with walnuts and pecans 🙂” – Jay
