Guys, I have a new favorite breakfast: Carrot cake overnight oats with chia seeds, walnuts and coconut flakes. I make overnight oats at least two or three times a week and I love this new version! Like all the recipes I post on Vegan Heaven, of course it is completely vegan. Plus it is gluten free, incredibly easy to make and super healthy! If you haven’t tried overnight oats yet, you really should give them a try!
It’s so nice to wake up and have a delicious and healthy breakfast waiting for you in the fridge…
Overnight oats are just oats that are soaked overnight in milk. I usually use rolled oats, chia seeds, almond milk, a banana and cinnamon puree and in the morning I season with some berries. So good and easy! And it literally only takes 1 minute to make the night before.
I’m actually not a morning person. Unfortunately I’m not one of those people who wake up in the morning feeling super relaxed, happy and full of energy. No, I guess I rather belong to the grumpy morning people. Haha! I’m always half asleep when I prepare breakfast. I still vividly remember the one time I dropped part of my blender lid into the mixing bowl and only realized it when I heard this horrible sound. Well, I guess I don’t have to tell you this story didn’t end too well. At least not for the lid…
So overnight oats are the perfect breakfast for me! Incredibly easy, packed with protein and fiber, and super versatile! I guess it’s fair to say that they are the Easiest breakfast ever! I also like to add a little cocoa powder every once in a while or even peanut or almond butter. It actually tastes like breakfast pudding like this.
I usually add a tablespoon or two of chia seeds because keep hunger at bay all morning. More, they contain an incredible amount of nutrients without having a lot of calories. They are also loaded with antioxidants. If you want to know more about the health benefits of chia seeds, check this out interesting article.
The recipe for this overnight carrot cake is super simple. Just combine oatmeal, Chia seedsAND grated carrots in a bowl, add some almond milk, vanilla and cinnamon and leave it in the fridge overnight. If desired, it can also be sweetened with agave or maple syrup. In the morning, complete it with chopped walnuts, coconut flakes, and if you want with more grated carrot. You can eat it cold or warm it up a bit. I like mine heated. You can find the full recipe with the exact amounts in the recipe card below the post.
I hope you enjoy these vegan overnight carrot cakes as much as I do. Let me know if you try them. As always, love to hear from you guys.
I hope you have had a great week! We will talk soon. Sin – xx
