These carrot cake baked oats are perfect on their own or with some toppings. Feel free to add some whipped cream to the top along with a dash of cinnamon. We love using dairy-free coconut whipped cream, TruWhip, and CocoWhip because they have better quality ingredients. We especially love Cocowhip because it has a light coconut flavor, is organic, non-GMO, and vegan. Additionally, feel free to top these oats with some 0-fat Greek yogurt, walnuts, or your favorite toppings. For an extra treat, spread some of our cream cheese carrot cake frosting on these baked oats!

How Long Does It Take To Cook Baked Oats?

Bake these baked oats in the oven at 350 degrees F for 27-30 minutes. You will know that your baked oats are done when they have risen and a toothpick comes out clean from the center of the oats. Make sure the center of your baked oats is cooked and isn’t soggy.

What Blender To Use For Carrot Cake Baked Oats?

Blender Baked Oats

I have been obsessed with my Blendtec Blender for years – I think it is magic! I seriously use it every day. It’s perfect for this carrot cake baked oats recipe. It is such an amazing blender the motor is very strong and will literally blend anything. A regular blender over time does not have the power to last.

Ingredient Substitutions For Carrot Cake Baked Oats

How To Grate The Carrots

We used one medium-sized carrot in this recipe, which is about 1/3 cup of finely grated carrots. Make sure to clean, peel, and carefully grate one carrot. If your carrots are very finely grated you can mix them into the batter once all of the other ingredients are combined as opposed to blending them in. However, if your carrots are not very finely grated, just blend them with the rest of the ingredients. This is important because you want the carrots to be fine enough to cook. You don’t want raw carrots in your baked oats.

Which Milk To Use

This baked oats recipe works with your milk of choice. We like to use unsweetened vanilla almond milk, regular unsweetened almond milk, or unsweetened oat milk in this recipe.

Which Oats To Use For Baked Oats

Baked oats can be made with old-fashioned oats, rolled oats, or quick oats. Also, feel free to use oat flour if you have it on hand. If not, you will blend the rolled oats to make oat flour. Keep in mind that steel-cut oats do not work well in this recipe as they do not blend into a fine enough consistency. We like using quick oats because they have produced the fluffiest baked oats.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 CUP freshly grated carrots, about one medium-sized carrot

  • 1/2 CUP rolled oats or quick oats

  • 1/2 TSP baking powder

  • pinch of nutmeg

  • pinch of salt

  • 1/2 TSP cinnamon

  • 1 TBSP and 2 TSP sugar or sweetener of choice

  • 1/4 CUP unsweetened applesauce

  • 1/2 TSP vanilla extract

  • 1/4 CUP of unsweetened vanilla almond milk

  • 1 egg

Directions

  • Clean, peel, and carefully grate one medium-sized carrot. This is about 1/3 CUP of grated carrots.

  • Add the baking powder, nutmeg, salt, cinnamon, and sugar or sweetener of choice to the blender and blend.
  • Add the unsweetened applesauce, vanilla extract, freshly grated carrots, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, and egg to the blender and blend until everything is combined. Make sure the carrots are blended so they cook. Or, mix your carrots in at the end as long as they are extra finely grated so they will cook. If the carrots are not grated finely enough they will not cook in the oven which is why you can blend them with the rest of the ingredients.
  • Lightly grease an oven-safe six-ounce ramekin with coconut oil or your oil of choice. Pour the baked oats batter into the ramekin.
