Carrot Cake Oatmeal

Oatmeal is one of my favorite choices for a healthy and delicious breakfast. Instead of carrot cake you can have oatmeal with carrots which is much healthier and no less tasty. It has everything you like about carrot cake (okay, except for the cream cheese frosting), but hey, you can survive without it. Moreover, you can mix in your favorite nuts if you like them in a cake. Use your imagination and feel good about what you eat!

Carrot Cake Oatmeal

1 cup liquid (preferably 1/2 cup water + 1/2 cup milk)
60g old-fashioned oats
1 tbsp ground flax seeds
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tbsp light brown sugar
1/2 carrot, grated
A handful of raisins
Honey or agave nectar, to serve

1) In a medium pot, bring liquid to boil. Once it starts boiling, reduce the heat to medium-low. 

2) Add oats, flax seeds, cinnamon, brown sugar, and carrot. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until most of the liquid has been absorbed. Add raisins and cook for another 2 minutes. Drizzle with honey or agave nectar and serve immediately.
