Food Market Recipe: Carrot Cake Overnight Oats

Overnight oats are the perfect breakfast meal prep option! It only takes a few moments Sunday evening to prepare all of your breakfasts for the week.  This recipe is a healthy choice as it includes carrots- it's a great way to get your day off to a nutritious start.


Carrot Cake Overnight Oats

Servings: 1

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Recipe Source: Modified from


  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 6 Tbsp. milk
  • 4 Tbsp. natural yogurt
  • 1 tsp. honey (optional)
  • ½ carrot, grated
  • ⅕ cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon


  1. Add all of the ingredients except for the carrot and walnut in a clean mason jar.
  2. Stir everything together.
  3. Add the leftover walnuts and carrots.
  4. Put a lid on the mason jar and refrigerate overnight.
  5. The next morning, remove from fridge, stir, and enjoy!


Veggies for breakfast?! Yes! Add some colorful nutrition to your morning with grated carrots (see this month's recipe). Another idea - include broccoli and peppers to an egg scramble. Got leftovers? Top your toast with roasted vegetables from the night before.
