Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal with Lemony Cashew Cream

#VirtualEasterParty – Happy Days!

Being a long standing lover of all things carrot cake – I decided to recreated the classic spicy warming carrot cake flavours in baked oatmeal and the rich warming spices and carrot combined perfectly to create a gorgeously gooey warming breakfast. Not only is this delicious and delivers yummy carrot cakiness it’s also super healthy and high in protein from the flax, sunflower  seeds, coconut, ground almonds and walnuts.
I made two standard size ramekins of oatmeal with this amount of mix but it’s so rich and filling you could device into four smaller portions and serve with some fruit as well as the lemony cashew cream.
In fact the cashew cream is so amazing I’m definitely making a bigger portion next time to top my oats or smoothies.
Caramelising the nuts could not be easier simply heat a little coconut sugar and maple in a small pan and stir to combine until coated and stickily sweet. Again brilliant for adding to your breakfast for extra crunch.

This would pretty much be my perfect lazy Easter I’ve created this recipe to join in a very exciting  #virtualEasterParty along side some talented bloggers. The creators of this party are the amazing Laura from A Sunshine Mission and Haley Davies from Brewing Happiness  – thanks for the invite ladies! You can find their delicious and healthy Easter recipes and all the contributors recipes at the bottom of my post! They look so delicious and I cant wait to try them!
