Servings: 6


  • 2 cups rolled old fashioned oats
  • ½ cup grated carrots
  • ½ cup canned crushed pineapple in juice strained
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts plus more for topping
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 Tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk or any milk of choice
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • pinch of sea salt

Maple Cream Cheese Glaze

  • ¼ cup whipped cream cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • Preheat oven to 375°F and line a 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Add all ingredients for the baked oatmeal in a large bowl and stir until combined.
    Rolled oats, grated carrots, crushed pineapple, chopped walnuts, raisins, cinnamon, vanilla, flaxseed, maple syrup and a pinch of salt in a mixing bowl. Almond milk is being poured into the bowl.
  • Pour into prepared baking dish and bake for 50-60 minutes. Check it around 45 minutes and if the top is getting too brown, cover with foil for the remaining time. The baked oatmeal will still be a little soft to the touch but should be cooked through and not jiggly in the middle.
