As I was making them I kept wondering if I could make a Carrot Cake Oatmeal Recipe in the crock pot! Because as you all know I love making anything I can in the crock pot!
My level of excitement to finally get to share this recipe is just a tad bit over the top! For some reason, this was a slow cooker recipe that has been in my head for years and I just never sat down and made it happen. Do you have recipes like that? Ones you want to make but you keep putting off?
I also really want to learn to make croissants and macarons! Both of these have been goal recipes for years. Maybe I will add them to my 50 before 50 list or 41 before 41 list depending on what I do. I can’t believe I am 40 and completed my 40 before 40 list! WOW! What a whirlwind of a year getting it done.
Are you drooling yet? LOL! Just kidding..sort of.
Here you go! Here is the recipe you need to make for breakfast or lunch or any time of the day honestly!
