Carrot Cake Overnight Oats

This blog post is available in the following languages:


Some time ago I shared a pic of my breakfast on Instagram and got a lot of questions about those orange colored overnight oats. The recipe is super simple and very similar to some of my other overnight oat recipes, but this time with a cake like spin.
So here you have the recipe, I hope you enjoy these Carrot cake overnight oats as much as I do!



Ingredients for two portions:
2 1/2 dl rolled oats (use gluten free if needed)
3 1/2 – 4 dl milk of your choice (depends how thick oats you want, I usually use unsweetened almond milk)
1 medium sized carrot, shredded
2 tbsp maple syrup or honey, use erythritol for lower calorie version
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp shredded coconut

1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp raisins
2 tbsp crushed pecans or walnuts
1 tbsp chia seeds (add a bit more milk)



• In a medium bowl, mix all ingredients together.
• Divide oats between two (glass) jars, cover with lids and refrigerate at least 6 hours or preferably overnight.
• In the morning, give it a stir (You’ll notice that the oats soak up a lot of the liquid, so you may want to add a little more milk before serving), sprinkle with your favorite toppings, dig in and enjoy!

  • Hello Sanna,

    First of all I would like to leave you a compliment. You have a very great and beautiful blog 🙂

    I think it’s great that you want to motivate people, inspire them and share new ideas with them 🙂

    But I came to your blog because I was looking for a great recipe for Overnight Oats. With you I found it 🙂

    Thank you very much! 🙂

    But I have a question about it: Can I do the oats for 2-3 days in advance or is it better to prepare them fresh every evening?

    Maybe the topic salad in the glass is interesting for you and I can thank you with this little content tip for the great article 🙂

    Wish you all the best.

    Best regards,

    P.S.: My English isn’t the best, but I hope it’s enough 🙂

    • Hi Nadine and thank for your lovely comment! You can do overnight oats in advance, I usually do fo 4-5 days.

      Wishing you a lovely rest of the year,
