I am on such a baked oatmeal kick and I cannot stop trying different flavors and sharing them with you- Salted Caramel Baked Oatmeal, Pina Colada Baked Oatmeal and Summer Fruit Baked Oatmeal. They are so easy to make, are healthy and taste awesome. Carrot cake is one of my favorite kinds of cake in the world and the idea of a healthy carrot cake style dish sounds amazing to me.

I decided to test out these carrot cake baked oatmeal cups and they turned out amazing. Since they are for breakfast, I did not want an unhealthy frosting on them so I made a healthier option with light cream cheese and vanilla Greek yogurt. I was very happy with the results.

We packed these for a trip and kept the "frosting" separate and just topped it with the frosting right before we ate them. I would definitely make them again and really enjoyed this healthy but satisfying breakfast. These would also be great for a snack.

    These got even tastier the next day. I had topped the oatmeal cups with the cream cheese frosting and put them into the fridge for breakfast the next day. I loved them cold out of the fridge because it was moist and dense like carrot cake. I topped mine with a bit of extra syrup for sweetness.
