This healthy carrot cake oatmeal blends carrot cake flavor with superfoods, fiber, nutrients, & protein, thanks to Vital Proteins. Gluten, dairy & sugar free.
Bring the two cups of dairy free milk to a gentle boil.
Add the Gluten Free Oats, shredded carrots, chia seeds, & ground flaxseed to the boiling water. Stir well.
Turn the heat down to low. Continue to stir the mixture well, so it doesn't get clumpy. Simmer for about 4-5 minutes depending on how you like your oats cooked.
Add the vanilla extract, Vital Proteins Vanilla Collagen (optional), cinnamon, & nutmeg. I added a ton of cinnamon because I love it. Continue to stir well.
Heat coconut oil in a separate pan on low heat.
Add the remaining shredded carrots & shredded coconut. Sauté the shredded carrots & coconut on low heat. Add a dash of cinnamon if you want. Sauté the mixture for about 2 minutes or until warm.
Pour the cooked oats into a bowl. Slice a banana. Add the toasted carrots & coconut, along with the banana on top of the oats. Sprinkle a dash of cinnamon or drizzle of honey over the top!
