The easiest prep-ahead breakfast, now in carrot cake form! Carrot Cake Overnight Oats are loaded with shredded carrots, walnuts, chia seeds, cinnamon, nutmeg – PLUS my not-so-secret ingredient: applesauce!


  • 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons freshly grated carrot
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk


  1. Add all ingredients to a mason jar or other container with lid and stir until well mixed.
  2. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, but preferably overnight. Store in the fridge and enjoy within 5 days.


Add more or less maple syrup depending on how sweet you like your oats. Add more almond milk if you like a thinner consistency of oats. Make additional batches of the recipe to prep breakfast for the next few days.
