Carrot Cake Overnight Oats (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Carrot Cake Overnight Oats (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Who loves the overnight oats trend? I know I do! What’s not to love? Just prep a couple of mason jars with oats and flavorful toppings, and breakfast is ready to go the next morning. Following right along with the overnight oats trend is this fabulous recipe for Carrot Cake Oats—filled with carrots, walnuts, raisins, coconut, and spices. The first time I tasted Carrot Cake Oats was on a carrot farm tour in California, and I thought to myself, I just have to make this at home. You can pop your jar of Carrot Cake Oats in the microwave for a few minutes if you like it warm.

Make your overnight oats in Mason jars so you can screw on the lid and grab it and go the next morning.
