How To Make This Oatmeal Carrot Cake
The process is super easy and a great way to involve your kids in the kitchen as well – I made this with my 3-year old, he loves baking cakes, cookies and mixing the batter for pancakes. Here are the 4 steps:
- Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350F or 180C
- Step 2: Put all ingredients except the carrots into a bowl and blend until creamy with a hand blender. If you don’t have a hand blender, you can use a blender to process the batter.
- Step 3: Stir in the carrots, line a 7×7 baking pan with parchment paper and spread the batter inside.
- Step 4: Bake for 20-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clear after inserted into the cake.
Slice and enjoy!
You can definitely make some changes if you don’t have the exact same ingredients. For example, feel free to use maple syrup if you can’t use honey or coconut oil if you don’t want to use butter.
You can also make this cake completely gluten and dairy free by using gluten free oats and coconut oil instead of butter.
We like this carrot cake on its own, but if you’d like to make a super easy frosting grab some cream cheese, honey and vanilla, mix together and spread over the cake once it’s cooled off.
