Looking for a way to increase your vegetable intake in the day? With this Carrot Cake Oatmeal, it’s easy! To make this recipe even better for you, we mix in an egg while it is cooking (we promise you can’t tell it’s there). The egg provides protein, and makes the oatmeal creamy. You can never go wrong with oatmeal for breakfast!
