High Protein Carrot Cake Flavour Overnight Oats 0 0 5 0

I love carrot cake, and I love oats. So when I was looking for inspiration for an overnight oats recipe I looked out some of my favourite carrot cake recipes so I could ensure the flavours were as authentic as possible. Therefore this recipe is full of rich spices and plenty of cinnamon (if you follow me on twitter @protein_chef you’ll be aware of my love of cinnamon). It also contains grated carrot just as any good carrot cake should have, which also doubles as a great way to add extra volume without masses of extra calories (win!). I added vanilla whey protein to sweeten and add extra protein but you could easily omit this and simply use a natural sweetener or maple syrup if you don’t have any. So less chat, more instructions. Here’s what you need and how to make your carrot cake overnight oats!…

  • Prep: 35 mins
  • Cook: 15 mins
  • 35 mins

    15 mins

    50 mins


100g oats

65g grated carrot

350 ml almond milk or water

50g liquid egg whites (I use Two Chicks liquid egg whites which you can buy here)

1/2 tsp mixed spice

1/2 tsp cinnamon

30g vanilla flavour whey protein (I used Smart Protein Optimum Whey)

30g raisins


1In a pan gently simmer the grated carrot with the almond milk (or water) for 5 minutes.

2Then add the spices, egg whites and oats and stir well. Cook for a further 2 minutes and remove from the heat.

3Stir in the whey protein and raisins and leave to cool.

4Once the mixture comes to room temperature transfer to a jar or tupperwear and put it in the fridge. As the name suggests its best to leave it overnight to thicken up, but it’s still great after a few hours chilling.

5Note – You can easily add more or less oats, carrot, egg whites or protein powder to suit your macros.

6Note No.2 – It’s also fantastic hot, simply don’t cool just eat straight away!
