I guess oatmeal doesn’t sound too appealing? At least that’s what I thought until I started to experimenting and making lots of different oatmeals. I kind of related it to when we went skiing during winter break. Then we just made a simple oatmeal with raspberry jam on top. It wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t anything special. You got warm, full and could ski until lunch. And since then I’ve never thought of it as anything exciting. But as said, then I started experimenting and trying to incorporate all my favorite flavors to my oatmeals. And they can be everything but blad and unexciting! This carrot cake oatmeal has all the flavors of a carrot cake! You have all the warming spices, grated carrots and a lovely coconut cream melting on top, topped with walnuts!

Also, it’s the best way of eating you daily does of vegetables without even noticing it!
