You know how much I love adding extra veg into baked goods to #makeveggiessexy again. Carrot cake is one of my favourite soul foods so I had to try making a carrot cake porridge. A great alternative to your tradiitonal oats and a way to bump up your veg intake. You could also try baking it in the oven after cooking to crisp up the top.
