this easy overnight oatmeal is loaded with carrot cake flavor and makes for the perfect portable morning meal!  prep it the night before then just grab and go on your way out the door!


  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • 1 cup milk (any kind you like best!)
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger (less if you don’t love ginger flavor because this packs a pretty good ginger punch)
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup peeled, grated carrot
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • Optional: 2-3 tablespoons shredded unsweetened coconut


  1. Combine all ingredients EXCEPT the walnuts into a bowl and stir to combine
  2. Cover bowl with plastic wrap (or store in an airtight container) and refrigerate overnight
  3. Remove from the fridge in the morning and mix in walnuts


If you’re not a big fan of cold oats, you can also pop it in the microwave in the morning to take the chill out.
