Last week at the farmer's market I picked up some Carrot Cake Jam from The Granola Tree. The ingredients are simple and natural - carrots, pineapple, apple, sugar, lemon, pectin, pecans, and spices. All fresh, nothing weird or unpronounceable, which is what I look for when buying jam at the farmer's market.
Yesterday I decided to stir some into my morning oats to make a quick and easy carrot cake oatmeal. Oh my. It was amazing. Just like carrot cake! And oh so easy. I hardly need to include a recipe, but it will look more professional if I do. (ha ha)
Carrot Cake Jam Oatmeal
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (I use Almond Breeze)
splash of vanilla extract (optional)
2 tbsp. carrot cake jam
1/4 cup raisins
2. Microwave on high power for 2 minutes. Stir and microwave for another 30 seconds.
3. Add jam and raisins. Stir well and cover for 3 minutes before eating.
Makes 1 serving.
