I’ve been craving baked items like cake and sweets. This Carrot Cake Oatmeal hit the spot. It was really like eating a piece of carrot cake for breakfast. As for my boys it was a split vote on who liked it. But strangely it was my picky eater who ate his all up!

This is a very thick oatmeal if you like your oatmeal a little more mushy and a little runnier just add more milk before cooking.
