Coconut Cake Oatmeal

I dreamed up this carrot cake oatmeal in the wee hours of the morning during one of Bowen’s feedings ( I was STARVING) and I couldn’t get it off my mind until I had it. This breakfast did not disappoint! 

I love having oatmeal in the morning because it keeps me satisfied for several hours, which is no small feat these days.

These are the very best oats I’ve ever had- I’ve read a lot about them on other people’s blogs and finally bought some. They really are the best! Coach’s oats are extra chewy (not mushy) and so quick to cook.

Here’s the difference (from their website) “COACH’S OATS are prepared in an entirely new way. The groats are toasted to bring the natural sugars to the surface of the oat, then cracked into small pieces. This patented Cracked n’ Toasted™ process means that Coach’s Oats are never mushy, always naturally delicious and cook in just 3 to 5 minutes on a stove top or in the microwave.”

Carrot cake oatmeal is packed with nutrition: carrots, apples, walnuts and (optional) raisins. They’ve got a great natural sweetness from the fruit but a drizzle of honey sends these oats over the top!

I make enough for several days so I’m not up every morning grating carrots, I actually had this for lunch today too 😉 These oats freeze beautifully too! And in my opinion, the best part of this yummy breakfast..coconut whipped cream topping! 

Speaking of sweet…could you just squeal at the cuteness! We are going on a trip this weekend and taking B with us, anyone having tips for flying with an infant? leave me a comment! Ill be back soon with more recipes and maybe a WIAW–anyone interested?
