This recipe was very simple. After I topped the oatmeal with the pecan mixture in our bowls we just poured a little cold fat free evaporated milk over the top and ate it like that instead of yogurt. We loved it. For us there were no leftovers. Between my two boys and I we ate every little bit. It was wonderful.
Wow - this is really good and very filling! This makes a lot so you'll definitely have enough leftover for future mornings. But, if you like carrot cake that won't be a problem! I cut back on the ginger and added some vanilla. I used a combination of walnuts and pecans, plus since I like things a bit sweeter I used vanilla yogurt vs. plain yogurt. I may add a little crushed pineapple to the reheated oatmeal for even more of a "carrot cake" taste and to up the sweet factor. Thanks for a great recipe!
Really good and really filling. It needs a little something I can't put my finger on, so I'll peruse the other reviews and see if someone has already found the answer. I may even need to double the carrot! Next time I'll also add a little less apple. It tastes fine, but it overpowered the carrot. I also cut the raisins. It was nice and easy to make it the night before, and reheat it for about a minute and half the next morning.I just have rolled oats instead of steel-cut, and halving the recipe and adjusting a few ingredients yielded me a nice, full breakfast. I dolloped it with nonfat Greek yogurt, and it was a nice touch. I'll certainly make this again, but try - just for fun - using instead a dollop of nonfat cream cheese! Both option sound awesome to me. I cut the ginger in half, cause even though I love ginger, it seemed like a bit much, and the ginger flavor I got was perfect! Subtle enough that it wasn't overpowering, but as a ginger-lover strong enough to give a tasty zing to the dish. Once I find what this needs, I'll update and re-rate this review accordingly. Until then, I still say this is a great addition to my breakfast rotation! UPDATE: Definitely double the carrot! Also, the tip of adding a little pineapple juice is a small change that makes a great difference! Highly suggested. I also tried topping with nonfat cream cheese that I whipped with a few drops of vanilla. That was SO good! Fat free whipped topping prepared the same way would be good too!
Steel-cut oats are great for a big batch that lasts all week. Usually I make mine plain and 'accessorize' by the bowl. A whole batch of one flavor is a big commitment! Thankfully I love carrot cake. The flavor is pretty good - with the yogurt, you really get a carrot cake essence for breakfast. This is not at all a sweet oatmeal - not like how most people enjoy a packet of instant oatmeal. I suspect many will add sugar (or sweetened yogurt?) to the final dish. And I personally will use half as much nutmeg next time - it was overpowering to me (and possibly increase the carrots). But overall a great change from the norm.
This sounded so good but unfortunately we didn't care for it. The ginger overpowered and gave it a rather pungent taste and left an aftertaste. If I were to make this again I would completely omit the ginger and maybe even reduce the amount of nutmeg. The other ingredient that overpowers are the raisins. I reduced the amount to 2 Tbsp. and still felt as if all I were eating were raisins. Had I added the full 1/2c the entire bowl would have been nothing but raisins.
Yummy!! Used my Zojirushi rice cooker and put everything in up to the pecans. Delish and easy for my family who eat breakfast at different times of the day. Family ate it all the first day, but should keep in your cooker for at least 2 days.
