The secret to consuming carrot cake for breakfast guilt-free!
For my April birthday this yr, I requested a carrot cake and Publix did NOT disappoint. I lastly perceive the hype over Publix Bakery- I might eat their cake day by day.
In truth, I did eat it for three days straight till it was gone (bittersweet). After day one, I stored it within the freezer and found a chilly cake is a superior cake.
However, consuming chilly (or heat) dessert 7 days per week doesn’t assist a nutritious diet.
But one meal I do get down on day by day? Overnight oats, child!
To say I like oatmeal could be an unlimited understatement. Simply realizing I’ve a jar prepped & ready for me in my fridge motivates me to get off the bed within the morning. I prefer it candy or savory, with fruit or nuts, chilled or scorching. My previous roommate even used to make enjoyable of me as a result of cinnamon apple oatmeal was my late-night snack of selection. Weird, I do know, however the coronary heart desires what the center desires.
I made a decision to recreate my carrot cake as a wholesome, in a single day oat model full of protein and fiber and let me say- it didn’t disappoint.
It took on a thick, cake-like texture with that excellent candy:spice ratio. Delicious!
This previous weekend, I batched prepped 2 servings to eat as gasoline for Saturday’s 7 mile path hike (two phrases: flat & muddy) and Sunday’s 5 mile run. These carrot cake in a single day oats would additionally make for an incredible post-workout meal.
