Carrot Cake Oats

Carrot Cake Oatmeal

  • 3 cups steel cut oats
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 4 cups water
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons nutmeg
  • 3 tablespoons cinnamon 


  • 2 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 Cup vanilla yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup


  1. Put all oatmeal ingredients into a greased the crockpot**. Cook on low 6-8 hours or overnight. (Overnight you get a little toasty crust around the edges, my favorite part!)
  2. Before serving, mix the topping ingredients.
  3. Serve the warm oats with a dollop of the cream cheese yogurt topping and maybe an extra drizzle of maple syrup. 

**I use a small 3qt crockpot for this recipe. If you're using a larger crockpot and therefore increasing the cooking surface area, the cooking times will be much quicker. For an 8qt crockpot, cooking time will be 2-3 hours on low.
