carrot cake overnight oats with macaWake up on the right side of bed to this maca-infused recipe for vegan overnight oats

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and sugar-laden cereals just don’t cut it. You need wholesome healthy food to start your day off right. Vegan overnights oats are the perfect fit for a healthy breakfast. Loaded with fiber, complex carbohydrates and protein, oatmeal is a great breakfast to fuel you and keep you full until lunch.

Making oatmeal is a no-brainer when you use the overnight oats method. You prep it the night before, let it soak in the fridge overnight, and dig in the next morning.

This overnight oats recipe is carrot cake inspired, with shredded carrot, coconut flakes, cinnamon, raisins and a hint of sweetness from pure maple syrup (you can also go sugar-free and use stevia instead).

Infused with maca powder for mood balance and a boost of antioxidants, this recipe will help to energize the start of your day whether you’re a morning person or not.
