During the winter, I am always looking for a warm and nutritious breakfast. Warm to keep me warm during cold days, and nutritious to make sure to keep you from getting sick. That’s also why I always try to eat 2 pieces a day and at least 200 grams of vegetables a day. Do you have trouble getting to those 200 grams every now and then?
No stress, I have something for you! I am a big fan of Carrot Cake. If that’s on the menu, I’ll be there anyway. That’s why I thought: you can easily make this with oats, as a Carrot Cake Oats breakfast!
Because, I think we all would like a lovely, tasty, healthy, warm and nutritious breakfast, right?
Carrots are naturally high in Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Potassium. Perfect for easy access to your portion and vegetables and to get those vitamins. Because of the delicious gingerbread spices and raisins, you don’t even realize you’re eating vegetables. Perfect, if you ask me ;-).
