Are mornings too rushed for you to prepare a wholesome breakfast from scratch and you then end up ravenous by lunch time and inhale allll the things? ⁠

By giving your body the fuel it needs in the morning, you are better able to tune in and honor your hunger and fullness cues consistently the rest of the day which will help you and your body feel good!But perhaps mornings are rush hour by you and feels to rushed to actually prepare breakfast first thing in the morning. ⁠

Enter – BAKED OATMEAL! You make it at the start of the week and viola! Breakfast is readily available for the rest of the week.⁠

This is one of my favorite breakfasts. Top with some sour cream, fruit, and maple syrup with a cup of coffee.. mmm bliss! Bonus points if kids are still sleeping and I can enjoy in total silence. ⁠

Since I LOVE carrot cake (who doesn’t?) it made sense to make a carrot cake version of baked oatmeal. I hope you love this recipe as much as I do!
