Carrot Cake Overnight Oats

Super easy to make, and makes use of the 10lbs of oatmeal i bought last year at Costco. While I may not have seen what the future held with Covid-19 coming our way, I love oatmeal in general and it's coming in handy now.
Prep time: 5 MCook time: Total time: 5 M


  • 1/2 cup uncooked regular oatmeal, each jar
  • 2 tsp chia seeds, for each jar
  • 1 carrot shredded, divided into 2 jars
  • 1 date per jar, diced
  • 1 tbsp shredded coconut per jar
  • milk to fill your jar (I used coconut milk which is perfect for this)
  • Additional add-ins per taste
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp pecans
  • Chopped dried pineapple - or fresh
  • Your add in mileage will vary depending on what you have on hand.


How to cook Carrot Cake Overnight Oats

  1. Layer the top ingredients in a jar, big enough for expansion.  These are called working jars, and I believe I got them through Sur Le Table, or Crate and Barrel, I forget which.
  2. Stir to combine, add your desired add-ins.  Fill to the top with milk of your choice and put the lid on - refrigerate overnight.

I actually had no idea my husband would like this - he asked that we have it again and the dry ingredients are sitting out as I type this, so I can make it again.  There are all sorts of variations of overnight oatmeal, and this carrot cake version is one we will make often.
