Ingredients

  • ½ cup whole oats
  • ½ cup unsweetened almond milk Oat milk is also a delicious option
  • 5.3 oz plain Greek yogurt
  • ½ medium-size carrot very finely grated
  • 1 tablespoon sugar-free maple syrup I use Walden Farms or 1-2 packets of stevia. You can also use real maple syrup or honey.
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon golden raisins
  • 1 tablespoon raw walnuts
  • ¼-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • dash nutmeg
  • dash ginger

Instructions

  • Stir all ingredients together and pour into a container for serving.
  • I love to use Mason jars, they are cute and are the perfect size for this recipe
  • Optional: top with a little whipped cream cheese or whipped cream, a drizzle of real maple syrup, and a few walnuts before serving.

Notes

*You can adjust the sweetness of the oats to your taste preference by adding more sugar-free or regular maple syrup. You can also use vanilla Greek yogurt instead of plain for the base.
*For protein oats without Greek yogurt, mix a scoop of your favorite protein powder with ¾ cup of milk (regular or nut milk) in a shaker with 2 teaspoon of chia seeds and add to the oats with the remaining ingredients. 
*Chia seeds are great for an extra fiber and nutrition boost. You can also add a teaspoon of chia seeds to the Greek yogurt recipe version.
