Easter morning can be a bit hectic, so beginning the day with a healthy breakfast you can prep the night before will kick things off on the right foot! We suggest making a big batch, spooning the oats in little jars, and adding a festive twist by tying colorful ribbon around the jars. These overnight oats will feel like a treat and prove that even carrots can taste delicious in oatmeal!

1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey
1 cup rolled oats

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch of sea salt
1 small carrot, finely shredded
1-2 tablespoons chopped walnuts, plus extra for topping
1-2 tablespoons shredded coconut, plus extra for topping
Handful of raisins, optional
Stir all ingredients together very well.
Divide between jars and cover.
