IMG_8438I’ve been called “The Oatmeal Girl” lately for my creations with rolled and steel cut oats. Sometimes I throw them in a crock pot, others I make right then and there. Overnight oats are simple too because you can just put them in a jar in the refrigerator and they’re ready the next day. Energy balls are another staple of mine and I recently made a carrot cake energy ball. This got me thinking that carrot cake oatmeal would be just as amazing! So I put the ingredients together and dove in to a breakfast that is sure to keep you energized throughout the day. Even the Olympians are eating oatmeal for breakfast! Eat like a champ and try this for breakfast.
