Carrot Cake Overnight Oats

Are you craving cake but it's breakfast time? Are you lacking energy to cook/prepare nutritious foods in the morning? Well... if none, one, or both of those are true... this is probably the snack for you. I don't care if you don't like cake (I'm looking at you momma sido), this is incredibly delicious, quick to make, isn't ACTUALLY cake, it's super healthy, and packed full of proteins. Plus... you can literally roll out of bed, grab a spoon, and dig in which is a really big benefit in my book since I NEVER want to cook breakfast and will usually grab whatever is easiest (yes potato chips have happened often).⠀
So... without further ado... CARROT CAKE OVERNIGHT OATS:⠀
INGREDIENTS:⠀
1/2 cu grated carrots⠀
1/2 banana, ripe, mashed⠀
2 tbsp shredded coconut⠀
1 1/2 cup rolled oats ⠀
1/2 tsp vanilla extract⠀
1/2 tsp- 1 tsp cinnamon⠀
1 tbsp ground flax seeds (remember, SUPER good for constipation)⠀
2 tbsp. maple syrup⠀
1 tbsp chopped almonds⠀
2/3 unsweetened almond milk/milk of your choice.⠀

HOW TO:⠀
1. In a jar combine all the ingredients⠀
2. Give it a good stir⠀
3. Seal the jar and pop it in the fridge⠀
4. In the morning, add almond butter, yogurt, nuts, or coconut flakes for an extra energy boost.⠀

You can store this in the fridge for up to FOUR days!⠀
