I’m back with another baked oatmeal recipe! I love carrot cake flavored recipes because of their distinct flavor, and also their sneaky ability to add vegetables to a recipe and making that recipe somehow taste even more delicious. This carrot cake baked oatmeal is my favorite version of a healthy carrot cake treat that really does taste like you are having carrot cake!

How to make it

  • To a blender, combine the oats, baking powder, almond butter, maple syrup, applesauce, shredded coconut, vanilla, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, ginger, salt, and milk. Blend those well until everything is incorporated and smooth.
  • Next, grate 1/2 cup of carrots. Note: if you don’t feel like hand grating them, you could also pulse those in a blender instead.
  • Fold in the grated carrots and the chopped pecans into the blended mixture with the rest of the ingredients. ***Do not blend the carrots and the pecans.
  • Next, make your coconut cream frosting.
  • Open a can of coconut cream (if you have refrigerated this for a few hours before, that works best, but no worries if you haven’t).
  • Measure out 1/2 cup of coconut cream. Add it to a bowl along with the maple syrup and vanilla. Whisk those well until the ingredients are combined.
  • Now it’s time to assemble the oats! Grab two oven safe bowls. Pour the carrot cake oat mixture into each bowl, only filling them to the middle.
  • Add a few tablespoons of the coconut filling to the center of each bowl. Fill the rest of the bowls with the remaining carrot cake oats.
  • Bake the oats in the oven for 20 minutes at 450F/ 230C.
  • When you remove the oats from the oven, give them some time to cool.
  • Top them with the remaining coconut cream and more pecan slices and dig in!
