Hands up who loves carrot cake! How about high protein baked vegan carrot cake oats! They are honestly one of my favourite breaky options lately as they’re DELICIOUS & packed full of fibre, protein, low GI carbs & healthy fats to keep me full all morning long!
Who doesn’t want to start their day with an extra serve of veggies? My high protein, baked vegan carrot cake oats make a great option if you are new to meal prepping and want to have a go at prepping some healthy breakfast options. They’ll last about 4-5 days in the fridge. You can bring them out and re-heat them at breakfast time.

1. You can use any type of protein powder, milk or yoghurt you prefer (dairy or non dairy based). 2. The mesquite power* & lucuma powder* are optional but they give it a lovely caramel taste (plus extra nutrients!). You can purchase them from your local health food shop (I grab mine from The Source Bulk Foods). If you choose not to include them, simply remove them from the recipe (no need to replace them with anything).
