Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal Cups

What’s your preferred sort of cake? Mine happens to be carrot cake. Discussing which, have you attempted my solid carrot cake formula yet?!

All things considered, I was unable to quit contemplating how I could change carrot cake into a sound adaptation you could appreciate for breakfast. In the wake of making my almond spread apple cereal cups, nutty spread banana oats cups and pumpkin oats cups, I figured it is amusing to evaluate a carrot cake prepared oats adaptation.

What’s more, OH MY FREAKING ZAC EFRON. These carrot cake oats cups are my new most loved breakfast! They’re generous, splendidly spiced with cinnamon, incorporate a lot of carrots, fruit purée and maple syrup for pleasantness, and nuts, raisins and destroyed coconut for surface and genuine carrot cake enhance.
