Carrot Cake Protein Oatmeal

Carrot Cake Protein OatmealThis is an oldie but goodie. I made it this time last year actually because what’s a more appropriate time of year for carrot cake?? I haven’t been eating grains since February but I tried adding oatmeal back in last week and it didn’t work out so well. So I miss my proatmeal…but maybe I’ll try again at another time. It seems I have almost figured out my issues!

Other than this breakfast being chock full of protein from whey protein powder (back in the day when I ate whey…you can of course use whatever you prefer), it’s also chock full of nutrients from carrots!

When I post old recipes sometimes it’s hard to find what I actually put in them. My Fitness Pal has 40 pages of recipes I’ve created and it does not have a search feature (they really should work on that). So I went back to look for it and I didn’t actually create a recipe for it in the app. However, I looked at the date the photos were taken, went to that day in my food diary and wa-la! Found the ingredients. Lucky me. Yes, I’m a freak.

With a pretty even carbs-protein ratio this makes a pretty good pre-workout breakfast!
