Carrot Cake Oatmeal

I was in the mood for something sweet this morning.

But at the same time I had this thought that I wanted something relatively healthy and not too heavy.

So this is how this meal was born.

Carrot Cake Oatmeal!

All the carrot cake flavors, but no heaviness or no over-sweetness.

This was a good hearty meal with a little fun twist.

First get all the “carrot cake” ingredients ready for the toppings.

Finely shredded carrots, pineapple, golden raisins, walnuts, date jam/syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.

I was initially planning to sweeten my oatmeal with brown sugar, but I decided to use dates as a sweetner.

I simply pureed dates (I used five pitted dates in 1/2-1 cup water) to make syrup.

It turned out to be a little thicker than I initially anticipated, but it was perfectly okay.

I eat oatmeal a lot during the week as a quick breakfast at work.

Just oatmeal and hot water, salt, and cinnamon.

Well, weekend oatmeal should be a bit more fun.

And this was fun.

It was so tasty.

Hearty and fresh at the same time.

Loved the date syrup/jam, as its caramel-like rich sweetness goes well with the rest of the ingredients.

Don’t forget to sprinkle a little salt, which brings out all the flavors and brighten them up.
