I haven’t posted a recipe for a while and thought as today (3rd February) is “Carrot Cake Day” that it would be the appropriate time to post my carrot cake baked oats recipe. I tried a couple of different versions of this and have come up with what is my favourite.
I do love baked oats. They feel a little like eating cake for breakfast (or an evening warm treat). However, no matter what way I make normal porridge -on milk or water, topped with fruit, nuts, honey cinnamon or whatever, I just cant get a taste for it. So baked oats it is!
I first discovered baked oats when doing Slimming World and had to chop and change the recipes they gave to suit me. What I am showing you here is not syn free like the ones SW would give you but I have a major dislike of artificial sweeteners and muller lights, I simply can’t eat them because of the taste, never mind what you read about how bad they are for you. I think this is quite a healthy recipe as it is and tastes a little naughty!
If you try out any of my recipes I would love for you to let me know what you think in the comments or on my Facebook page www.facebook.com/MissLeelaSassafras.
