Carrot Cake and Chocolate

Posted Nov 13 2010 5:56pm

It has been a lovely Saturday so far. I have been busy catching up with school work and cleaning up my room. I returned from my trip last weekend and walked in to a room that looked like a tornado ran over it.

I ate treats for breakfast this morning. I love that I wake up and get excited for breakfast.

Chocolate Mint Truffle Tea to wake-up my body in the morning. I added almond milk to the tea afterwards, I like my chocolate tea to have a creamy texture.

Carrot Cake Oatmeal

DSC_9500a I love this flavor combo, which was inspired from Kat .

It’s like eating a combination of hot creamy oatmeal, vanilla cake, mix with tropical flavors from the mango and coconut + the chewiness of the shredded carrots.

I love the light sweetness that comes from the mango and flavored icing (dollop of strawberry yogurt).

Each bite packs a lot of flavors.

With each spoonful, you grab a different mix of toppings.

The carrots in this mix are soft and chewy and does not taste like vegetables at all to me.

Carrot Mango Oatmeal:

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup almond milk & 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrots (I used Trader Joe’s packaged shredded carrots and did a quick chop before adding to the oatmeal)
  • 1/2  cup mango, diced (I used Trader Joe’s frozen mangoes and diced them into smaller pieces)
  • Pinch of salt

Put all the above ingredients in a sauce pan, turn heat to medium and stir occasionally. The mixture will come to a boil and most of the liquid will be absorbed.  It took about 8 minutes for me because I used thick rolled oats.

When oats are done, stir in

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp brown sugar (optional, I didn’t add any)

Toppings:

  • Icing = Flavored yogurt (or plain yogurt mix with maple syrup)
  • Toasted chopped pecans
  • Unsweetened coconut

Chocolate + Carrot Cake for breakfast

You can make a big batch of the oatmeal base so you can enjoy your carrot cake for several days in a row. I just multiplied the servings x 3.
