It’s time to beat those carrot cake cravings at breakfast with this Protein Carrot Cake Oatmeal recipe! Diet friendly, delicious, and packed with all the right flavors.
Start this one by adding into a microwavable bowl 1/2 cup of rolled oats, 1/2 cup of unsweetened vanilla milk substitute, and 1/2 cup of water.
