What are carrot cake overnight oats?
These overnight oats basically taste like eating a slice of carrot cake! With shredded carrots, sweet raisins, and plenty of cinnamon and allspice, we love the way the flavors mimic those of carrot cake. The addition of hemp hearts add to the richness in flavor, and chia seeds give the oats a nice, pudding-y texture (plus tons of health benefits!)
