  • ½ cup oats
  • ¾ cup unsweetened almond milk or any milk
  • 3 Tablespoons grated carrots
  • ½ - 1 Tablespoon maple syrup
  • ½ Tablespoon raisins
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract optional
  • 1 Tablespoon unsweetened flaked coconut
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped walnuts or pecans for topping


  • Place all ingredients except the nuts in a container and stir until well combined. Seal with a lid and place in the fridge overnight (or at least a couple hours).
  • Bring out of the fridge in the morning and stir. You'll notice that the oats soak up a lot of the liquid so you may want to add a little more almond milk before serving. Top oats with chopped nuts and serve.


  • Almond milk: Feel free to use any dairy or non-dairy milk of choice. 
  • Maple syrup: Honey or another natural liquid sweetener will work here as well. If you want to reduce the sugar in this recipe, feel free to use a sugar alternative like stevia or monk fruit.
  • Want to add protein? Add a scoop of protein powder or 1/4 cup Greek yogurt and reduce the milk to 1/2 cup.
