Recipe type: Breakfast, Snack
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 ½ cup milk (any milk works; I used almond milk)
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon oil (any oil works; I used organic canola oil)
  • 1 ½ cup oats
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ cup raisins
  • 1 cup finely grated carrot (loosely packed)
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 375 F.
  2. Mix the wet ingredients in a big bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients, one by one.
  3. Pour the batter in a 8x11 inch glass dish.
  4. Bake for 40 minutes until the oatmeal becomes lightly brown on the surface. Turn the oven off and keep the oatmeal in the oven for 10 more minutes.
  5. Remove the dish from the oven.
  6. Enjoy warm or cold. If you want to make hearts allow the oatmeal to cool off. Then use a heart-shaped cutter to make the shapes.
  7. Enjoy!
  8. Leftovers keep well in the fridge for up to 3 days.
