IMG_5684

I’ve been reading on a couple of blogs about a carrot cake oatmeal. I thought it sounded delicious, since carrot cake is one of my favorite cakes (my best recipe is here). I didn’t have everything that I needed for the recipes that I had seen online, so I made my own version (and of course all the ingredients are substitute-able for whatever you have at home…). I added chia seeds as well, in order to amp up the protein! Enjoy!

Recipe (1 large bowl) / Recept (1 stor portion) 

1 small carrot or 4 mini carrots / 1 liten morot eller 4 mini morötter

0.4 cups of rolled oats / 1 dl havregryn 

0.8 cups of water / 2 dl vatten 

0.5 tsp cardamom / 0.5 tsk kardemumma

0.5 tsp cinnamon / 0.5 tsk kanel 

0.5 tsp of ginger (fresh or dried) / 0.5 tsk ingefära (färsk eller torkad)

1 tbsp of chia seeds / 1 msk chia frön 

1 tbsp greek yogurt / 1 msk grekisk yoghurt 

a drizzle of honey / lite honung 

1. Grate the carrots. / Riv morötterna.

2. In a pot, add carrots, oats, water and spices together. / I en kastrull, blanda morötter, havregryn och kryddor.

3. Bring to boil and add in the chia seeds. / Koka upp och blanda i chia frön.

4. Let simmer on low heat until the water is gone, stir occasionally. / Låt koka på svag värme och rör då och då.

5. Take of the heat and top with yogurt and honey. / Ta av från värmen och toppa med grekisk yoghurt och honung.

6. Enjoy!
