Healthy Vegan Carrot Cake Baked Oats is a nourishing, easy to make and incredibly scrumptious recipe that you can make ahead of time for pre-made breakfasts or snacks. many people have been asking for oat based recipes, and i think this delicious and nutritious baked oats recipe will make you oh so happy.
this recipe is easily healthy enough for breakfast and will keep you feeling so full!
the heartiness and flavors are my favorite, but we can’t forget about the amazing texture.
as a baked oats recipe, there is definitely a yummy semi-fudgy texture.
the texture is in between cake and oatmeal! the baked oats are sturdy enough to cut into bars, and that’s what i recommend doing.
this way, you will have 9 pretty hearty slices for the week.
there’s also a homemade cashew frosting that’s made with just cashews, maple syrup, almond milk and vanilla extract.
to add more bulk to your breakfast, you can add some banana slices on the side, some vegan yogurt, nut butter or honestly, anything you want.
Healthy Vegan Carrot Cake Baked Oats will go well with anything and everything. for that little bit of extra sweetness, add a drizzle of maple syrup.
in the recipe itself, there’s 1/3 cup of maple syrup, so not that much at all. the spices, raisins and carrots bring out some sweetness too.
the spices that i used are cardamom, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg, which i all highly recommend you use.
this brings the baked oats the flavor it needs to feel oh so decadent and satisfying.
also, to really bring out the flavor, you’re going to use vanilla extract in both the baked oats and the frosting.
Healthy Vegan Carrot Cake Baked Oats will bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 33-35 minutes by the way!
here’s some other oat recipes from my blog that you’re going to love!
the baked oats and the frosting are super easy to make because you make both in a blender or food processor.
for the oats, i just added everything to a blender and blended until a smooth texture formed.
then, you fold in the walnuts, raisins and grated carrots.
also, PRO TIP that you must try- don’t grate carrots by hand. instead, add them to a food processor and grind on high until you get a grated texture.
it’s soooo much easier and saves loads of time!
