Carrot Baked Oats
Breakfast time can be stressful no matter your age or work schedule. It’s often too easy to skip it all together, or grab a convenience bar on the way out of the door. But fear not, I’ve got a recipe for you. I love the convenience of baked oats . In fact, I make them in advance, wrap them in cling-film, and keep them in the freezer for when I miss my alarm, or spend too much time wasting time (which happens, a lot). I even like eating these on lazy mornings, warmed with a dollop of yogurt and a drizzle of maple syrup.
