Ingredients

  • 2 cups rolled (old fashioned) oats
  • 1 ¾ cup preferred milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • cup maple syup
  • 1 ¼ cup finely grated carrots
  • ½ cup raisins
  • 2 tbsp oil or melted butter
  • ¾ tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • tsp ground nutmeg
  • tsp salt

Greek Yogurt "Cheese" Frosting

  • ½ cup softened cream cheese
  • 3 tbsp Greek yogurt
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  • 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".

"Cheesecake" Frosting

  • 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.

Notes

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.
