Carrot Cake Oats Ingredients

  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp almond butter
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 2 tbsp shredded coconut
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • dash of salt
  • 1 cup dairy free milk
  • 1/2 cup grated carrot
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans

Coconut Cream Frosting Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup coconut cream
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla


  • 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 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 450*F/ 230*C.
  • 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!
