Slow Cooker Carrot Cake Oatmeal

Slow Cooker Carrot Cake Oatmeal

We have a local bakery that makes the absolute best Carrot Cake. The cake is moist and delicious and full of flavor and the cream cheese icing is out of this world. I do not get a chance to get the to bakery often, but when I do, I always get a piece of her Carrot Cake.

This is a breakfast oatmeal made with her Carrot Cake in mind. This Slow Cooker Carrot Cake Oatmeal brings the flavors of a cake into the oatmeal. And it is so good! I like to top with shredded sweetened coconut or chopped raisins for added goodness.

Though I love this made in the slow cooker, having it cooked overnight and ready in the morning. Sometimes, I like to make this on the stove. It is easy to make and is ready from start to finish in about 10 minutes.

In a medium pot, bring the water and milk to a boil. Add in the oats, salt and carrots. Reduce the heat and stir as the oatmeal simmers. Allow to simmer for 5-7 minutes. Remove from the heat and add in the pineapple, cinnamon and brown sugar. Serve in bowls topped with the shredded coconut and chopped nuts.

I look for good deals on carrots through the year and try to can as much as I can. I like having the canned carrots in the house to use in a pinch. If not, I watch the local store that has a sale on canned goods at least twice a year and try and stock up then.
