Now you can have your cake and eat it too! Imagine biting into layers of cream cheese yogurt snuggled between bites of carrot cake oats. Mmmm…each bite overwhelms the mouth with flavor and textures. Crunch from the carrots and pecans, creaminess from the oats and yogurt and a little chewiness from the raisins. Are your taste buds salivating yet?
Yes? Ok good, I’ll continue…
The cream cheese flavors pair perfectly with the hints of cinnamon and sweetness from the carrots/raisins. This is an indulgent feeling dessert without all the guilt. If you are having Easter Brunch this is a perfect way to make your morning easier. You can easily assemble the ingredients the night before, refrigerate and then assemble in the AM. The presentation is perfection and sure to impress your guests.
(And don’t tell the kiddos you gave them vegetables for breakfast! It will between us adults)
