You won’t believe how many carrot cake pictures I’ve ogled at last night. Thoughts of rich, fluffy cream cheese frosting swirled in my head non-stop.

I even listed ingredients so I could buy them today and make a big dense, moist, delicious Carrot Cake later.

I thought about how I could eat a big slice and mutter a shameless excuse of eating my serving of vegetable for the day just because it has carrots in it.

I reminded myself that I’m trying to eat healthy and that I needed to shed a few lot of pounds. I gathered up everything that I have of  that mysterious thing called willpower….. But the call of cinnamon, nutmeg and carrots is too hard to resist.

So I got an idea…. inspired by this vivid imagination of the scent of cinnamon and nutmeg wafting through my kitchen.

Ah, carrot cake in the form of my morning oats — Carrot Cake Oatmeal!

It’s healthy and yet, it satisfies my craving for cake. Indulgent. It’s dessert and breakfast in one.

My only disappointment in making this recipe is that I wasn’t able to make cream cheese frosting. I forgot I was out of cream cheese and my sari-sari store neighbor doesn’t sell one.

Oh well, there’s always tomorrow….
