Prepped in under 10 minutes, these carrot cake overnight oats are the perfect make-ahead breakfast for the week! Perfectly spiced and creamy, it’s a satisfying way to start the day!


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup grated carrots (from about one large carrot)
  • 12 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons shredded coconut
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt (or a couple pinches)
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond or coconut milk


  1. Add oats, carrot, syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, raisins, walnuts, coconut, and salt to a medium mixing bowl. Add almond milk and stir until combined.
  2. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator overnight (or for at least 6 hours).
  3. Give it a quick stir in the morning and enjoy cold or warm!


  1. Overnight oats can be stored in an airtight container for up to five days in the refrigerator. The longer the oats soak, the softer they will become. I like storing overnight oats in a glass jar (like a mason jar) with a tight seal.
  2. Overnight oats can be enjoyed cold, warm, or hot. In the cooler months, I like to pop mine in the microwave for about a minute. In the summer, I enjoy them cold, straight out of the fridge!
