Carrot Cake Oatmeal

I am on an oatmeal kick and this one is out of this world delicious!!! I couldn't finish the whole serving because it was so filling, but I sure tried! Who knew oatmeal could be so wonderful?

The recipe came courtesy of Eat Me, Delicious.

Carrot Cake Oatmeal

1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup of grated carrot
pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp brown sugar
2 tbsp nonfat plain yogurt
1 tsp maple syrup
1 tbsp chopped pecans
1 tbsp shredded coconut

Combine the rolled oats, milk, water, carrots and salt in a saucepan. Turn heat to medium and stir occasionally until mixture comes almost to a boil and most of the liquid is absorbed, which takes about 5-7 minutes. When oats are done, stir in vanilla and brown sugar.While oats are cooking make "icing" by blending 2 tbsp plain yogurt with 1 tsp maple syrup. Toast pecans in the oven for a few minutes (optional). Pour oats into a bowl and top with coconut, pecans and icing.
