This month I’ve been seriously lacking in some creative kitchen juice, I blame the change in seasons…for my light bulb moment!
Because what is better than some autumn flavors to slowly wined down the seasons? From cinnamon to raisins, this time of year is jam packed with some of my favorite flavors & colors.
I have been toying with the idea of adding veggies to my breakfast, and as amazed as I am with those using baby marrows or eating salads first thing in the morning, I am an oats girl through and through and couldn’t see myself starting the day any differently.
Then I thought, what none breakfast food could I eat so early? ‘Cake? No no Candice don’t be silly. Yeah but carrot cake surely is more veggie than cake?’ Oh the lies we make up for ourselves. Any way in a nutshell I came to the idea of carrot cake oatmeal that used the same flavors, just mixed & mooshed till it was breakfast like.
Now I know you are thinking this must be strange however when the carrot, honey, cinnamon and nutmeg get mixed together something magical happens. It’s almost as if the flavors get candied in flavor and with the oats create one hell of a treat for breakfast!
And that’s how you make your cake AND eat it!
All my love,
