Ingredients

For the Baked Oatmeal

For the Cream Cheese Drizzle

  • 2 ounces vegan cream cheese
  • ¼ cup confectioners sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons non-dairy milk

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease a 9×9” baking dish. 
  • In a large bowl, whisk the eggs (or flax eggs), almond butter, milk and vanilla extract until smooth. Add the oats, cinnamon, ginger, salt, and coconut sugar then stir to combine.
  • To the bowl, add the shredded carrot, chopped nuts and raisins. Stir everything together then pour into the greased baking dish, using the back of the spoon to smooth out the top. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until firm and golden brown.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the frosting: In a medium size bowl, using a mixer to beat the cream cheese until smooth. Beat in the powdered sugar then add 2 tablespoons of milk. The texture should be thin enough to pour. If it's still to thick, add another tablespoon of milk to thin. Set aside.
  • When ready to serve, drizzle the cream cheese icing over top of the oatmeal. Serve warm (or cold) and enjoy! Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
