Cauliflower Carrot Cake Oats

These oats are the best thing that’s happened to me in 2020. Seriously, they fill up my tummy even on my lowest of low carb days in my competition prep.

I love them so much I have quite a few variations of cauli oats (blueberry, lemon blueberry, apple pie, etc)

These carrot cake cauli oats are my FAVORITE of all variations, but I rotate through all the flavors to avoid flavor fatigue!

If you’re confused about any steps, I posted a youtube video showing how I make this exact version. (Skip to 2:10 for JUST the oats if you don’t want to watch the rest!)

Final note before the recipe: please don’t forget to add sweetener or spices.

If you don’t add either it will be bland & tasteless.

I can usually find these Better Oats 100 calorie packets in stores, but lately I’ve been buying them in bulk from Amazon because quarantine life…

I also have an Oat recipe without any cauliflower for those of you who are still skeptical.

And for the love of (I don’t know where I was going with this sentence) BUT STOP ADDING PROTEIN POWDER TO YOUR OATS.

I mean, you can if you want, but protein powder dissolves in the oats… OR you could choose to just add more egg whites to make it creamier & bigger (egg whites = more volume!)

The only reason I can see that anyone would add protein powder is for flavor… & spices like cinnamon, pumpkin pie spices, & then things like vanilla extract, caramel extract, & cake batter extract can mimic all the same flavors for 0 extra calories.

Skinny Syrups are also how I sweeten my oats & add flavor!

If you make these oats, I LOVE seeing pictures and videos of recreations on instagram! Tag me @emyogi_fit <3
