Not all puddings are equal. Take this one for example, technically a cake, eaten at breakfast, no refined sugar, no dairy and nutrition in every spoonful. Breakfast doesn’t get better than this.
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
1 cup coconut milk
1 cup water
1 cup rolled oats
2 cups peeled and grated carrots
2 bananas, mashed
4 Tbsp raisins or dried goji berries
2 Tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla spice or vanilla essence
1⁄2 tsp ground ginger
1⁄2 tsp ground nutmeg
1⁄2 tsp ground cloves
1⁄2 cup coconut cream
Maple syrup (to taste)
In a small pot over a medium heat, bring the milk and water to a simmer. Add the oats and bring to a slow boil, then reduce the heat and allow to simmer for 3 minutes.
Add the grated carrots, bananas and raisins or berries, as well as the maple syrup, vanilla essence and spices. Cook for another 3–5 minutes. Pour in the coconut cream and stir well, allowing to simmer for approximately 5 minutes until the liquid is absorbed and a thick consistency is reached.
Add the toppings and decorate as desired. Enjoy the ‘cake‘ warm.
