Carrot cake porridge

Pudding & Cake Serves 2 10 min
Enjoy the flavours of carrot cake in a wholesome, warming bowl of porridge. This is a great way to get a portion of veg in at breakfast, and also to use up that leftover rogue carrot in the fridge. It can be enjoyed as overnight oats too – just mix all the ingredients together, leave them to sit in the fridge overnight, and enjoy cold in the morning.
