the fit beast feasts: overnight carrot cake protein oats

i have been craving carrot cake for the last few months and this breakfast treat, here, really hits the spot for me.  the heartiness of the oats, the crunch of the almonds, and the sweetness of the raisins and carrots are amazing.  oh, there's greek yogurt, too, that gives it a zingy flavor like a cream cheese frosting!  i hope you'll give it a try!

ingredients
1/4 cup organic greek yogurt (vanilla flavored)
1/3 cup old fashioned oats, dry
3 tbsp grated carrot
1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
1/2 cup unsweetened and unflavored almond milk
5 almonds, chopped
1 tablespoon raisins
cinnamon to taste

combine all ingredients in a small bowl, cover, and refrigerate overnight.

depending on what products you use, the nutritional information may vary.  mine came out to 300 calories, 37.92 grams carbs, 26 grams protein, 8 grams of fat.

eat clean.  live lean.  live better.  live longer.
