I like to top my oats with a spoonful of Greek yogurt along with a sprinkle of crumbled walnuts.

Breakfast doesn’t get any better than that.

  1. I’ve never been a huge fan of actual carrot cake, but if it’s oatmeal you know I’ll eat it. 😉 Those toppings wouldn’t be optional for me either!! Haha!
