Steel cut oatmeal flavored with raisins, carrots, and walnuts, then cooked up so it tastes like a slice of creamy carrot cake. Sign me up for some of that goodness!
This is the start of a tasty week filled with brunch recipes. I’m kicking things off with a recipe for carrot cake steel cut oatmeal. It’s hearty and creamy, with just a touch of sweetness. Be the cool parent and serve this up for your kids. It’s so sweet and delicious, they may think they’re eating cake instead of good-for-them oatmeal!
This is the second annual brunch week, and this year, it’s hosted by Terri from Love and Confections and Susan of The Girl In The Little Red Kitchen! Starting today, and running through May 11th, we’ll celebrate the deliciousness of brunch and prepare for Mother’s Day and the summer brunch season. We have 32 bloggers bringing you their best brunch recipes, from beverages to main dishes, to salads and desserts. There’ll be delicious recipes for everyone’s taste buds this week. Our amazing sponsors have donated some great prizes for a gigantic giveaway, too, and I think you’re gonna love the details of this one, my friend!

Thanks to our wonderful sponsors for their generosity in providing the Brunch Week contributors with free products to use for recipe development and for giveaway prizes for our readers.
I made this steel cut oatmeal with help from Bob’s Red Mill steel cut oats, California Walnuts, and Grimmway Farms carrots. All completely delicious components in this brunch treat!
STEEL CUT OATMEAL RECIPE COOKING TIPS
I adapted this recipe from one that my blogging friend Karen created. She used 1/4 cup of shredded coconut in her version, but since I’m allergic to all forms of coconut, I left it out. I went for raisins and walnuts, and an extra dash of almond milk to top mine off.
This will keep well for a few days if you cover it well and keep it in the refrigerator. I had it on day 3 with some maple syrup drizzled over the top. It made my stomach quite happy.
I hope you love this steel cut oatmeal as much as I did!
