Stephen & Elise Compston, RD, LDs
rolled (old fashioned) oats
finely grated carrots
oil or melted butter
Greek Yogurt "Cheese" Frosting
softened cream cheese
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together oats, milk, eggs, maple syrup, vanilla, chia seeds, oil, baking powder, and seasonings until well combined.
Stir in carrots and raisins, making sure carrots are evenly distributed.
Pour mixture into a greased 8x8 baking pan and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until top is lightly golden and oats are "set".
To a mixing bowl, combine frosting ingredients and whisk well. To make extra smooth, a hand or stand mixer works well. Place frosting in the fridge to "firm up" while oats bake.
Note: frosting will firm up as it chills. If preparing a day ahead, remove from fridge 15 minutes before using or warm in the microwave in 10 second intervals, until desired consistency is reached.
