Overnight Crock Pot Carrot Cake Oatmeal

Overnight Crock Pot Carrot Cake OatmealOne of my favorite things about the beginning of the year is how full of hope the new year is. It’s a great time to think about the upcoming year, to set goals, and to start fresh with things.Overnight Crock Pot Carrot Cake OatmealOne of my goals for the last couple of years has been to increase my family’s fruit and veggie intake. There have been two things that I’ve done that have worked well for us. Overnight Crock Pot Carrot Cake OatmealFirst, we snack on fruit and veggies more often now. So many items in the produce department make perfect snacks – baby carrots, apples, bananas, oranges, etc. When we go to our local Fry’s Store, they have a little free produce stand for the kids that is stocked with mandarin oranges, apples, and bananas. My kids always grab something and snack on that while we shop. Overnight Crock Pot Carrot Cake OatmealSecond, I add extra fruits and vegetables to our meals when I can. Meals like this Overnight Crock Pot Carrot Cake Oatmeal are the perfect place to add a little extra produce to the meal. Overnight Crock Pot Carrot Cake OatmealThis oatmeal is rich and creamy thanks to the combination of the Silk Almond Milk and Silk Coconut Milk. It’s also full of good-for-you ingredients like oats, carrots, and raisins.

Best of all, it tastes delicious! The oatmeal has the spices and flavors of a slice of carrot cake, but it comes in a much healthier form. So, this oatmeal is a perfect way to keep those new year goals.

    How many servings does this make with only one cup of oatmeal added? Thinking one or two? Can’t wait to try it but have a family of four.

      Actually, you should get more like 6-8 servings. =) The steel cut oats absorb the liquid and really expand while they’re cooking. I have a family of 5, and this easily feeds us. Hope that helps!

    Do you add the raisins to the crockpot or are they a topping?

      I added them in (and updated the recipe to reflect that). I like that they soften while they’re in the crock pot. If you wanted to, you could certainly just add them at the end as a topping instead.
