Carrot Cake Oatmeal

A quick how-to, if you will.

Carrot Cake Morning Oats:

2-3 huge spoonfuls of overnight oats

1 raw carrot cake triangle (just shredded carrot, oats, banana)

half a banana & wheat germ

microwave the bad boy, add homemade granola, frozen blueberries, almonds & almond butter. Insanity.


this was the most incredible pear I have ever had in my entire life, I kid you not.

Goodbye Cookies:

Lovely Banana/Oat cookies for my amazing co-workers that I will miss, love those girls!
