Today I Ate Carrot Cake Oatmeal.

OH. EM. GEE (as in goodness)!!!!!!

I'm an oatmeal lover.   Not that nasty stuff you get in a little brown packet (though in a pinch, it'll do).  I'm talkin' about the yumminess you get cooking oats, water (no milk for my girls, remember), and raisins on the stove top (or in the microwave on busy mornings).  The oatmeal I ate for breakfast today was sooooo delicious!!  Seriously, it's a recipe that takes everyday oatmeal up by several notches.  You can find the recipe directly under the photo (click on "source"). 


I did make some changes (of course).  No milk, obvs, so I just amped up the water amount.  I'm not a big fan of walnuts, so I used of the rest of my silvered almonds.  I opted for toasted coconut  because it's the only coconut I have on hand.  And I was a bit more heavy-handed with the brown sugar than the makers of this recipe advised.  :D  I used regular yogurt (only for myself) and it was like the frosting on the cake. 

If you like oatmeal and carrot cake, make this!  And if you have a delectible more-than-the-average-oatmeal recipe, send it to me por favor!

Oh yum! I'm so hungry.
I like oat groats. Delish, but they take forever to cook.

Sounds lush.
Have you ever tried bircher muesli?
I make a big batch and keep in in the fridge soaking in apple juice. All I have to do in the morning is spoon it out and add yoghurt and fruit compote if I have any lying around.
Even the kids eat it.
