Air fried carrot cake baked oats:

When your breakfast taste like carrot cake, you know you are doing something right! These air fried carrot cake baked oats are a must try! Because they are super simple to prepare and make for a great meal prep option for your busy mornings.

Ingredients you will need:

  1. Flaxseed meal
  2. Hemp seeds
  3. Almond mylk (substitute any type of Dairy free mylk you like)
  4. Gluten free oats
  5. Shredded carrots
  6. Raisins
  7. Candied pecans (substitute any nut/seed you prefer)
  8. Ground ginger
  9. Cinnamon
  10. Nutmeg
  11. Salt
  12. Baking powder
  13. Maple syrup
  14. Raw coconut butter

How to prepare batter:

Preparing the batter is simple. Add all the ingredients, except the raisins and chopped candied pecans to a bowl, and mix. And then fold in the raisins, chopped candied pecans, mix, and add to a greased ramekin.

Cooking in air fryer:

Add ramekin to air fryer and cook on 390°F for 10 minutes, or until the top is golden brown. But keep an eye on it, so the top doesn’t burn, all air fryers vary in cook time. And once done let rest for 5-10 minutes. And drizzle with melted raw coconut butter on top.

Baking in oven:

And if you don’t have an air fryer, these can be baked in the oven, on 350°F for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

Can I meal prep ahead of time?

Yes! These air fried baked oats are perfecting for meal prepping in advance. But if you are using the raw gluten free oats, that I used in this recipe, please don’t leave the batter raw. I would suggest baking the day you meal prep them. And keep stored in the refrigerator covered and reheat in the morning. Because since the oats are raw, it will cause the batter to turn into a sharp, bitter flavor, and you won’t be happy about it. But if you are using regular oats or any other type of oats that are not raw, you can leave the batter raw, and bake in the morning you plan on eating.
