For best results, we recommend using:

  2. Cook on Low for 6 to 8 hours.
  3. Stir walnuts and vanilla extract into the oatmeal to serve.
Mealthy tip:

For an additional bit of decadence, beat ½ cup coconut cream in the bowl of a stand mixer until light and fluffy; about 10 to 15 minutes. Spoon dollops of the whipped cream onto hot oatmeal.

I loved this carrot cake oatmeal. Perfect breakfast for those cool mornings. Also I tried the Mealthy tip and made whipped cream from coconut cream. So cool!

I love carrot cake so I had to try this oatmeal recipe. It was delicious and tasted really similar to actual carrot cake. I also got my kids to eat it too, which is always a win.
