Directions

1Add the carrot and water to a small saucepan; bring to a boil over medium heat, then boil 3 minutes (uncovered), stirring occasionally.

2Stir in the oats, raisins, coconut, 1 tablespoon walnuts, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger, and sea salt. Cook until the oats absorb the liquid, about 1 minute, stirring constantly. Turn off the heat and stir in the honey and vanilla.

3Transfer to an individual-sized serving bowl, and top with the heavy cream and the remaining 1 tablespoon walnuts.

To Make This Recipe Vegan: Use maple syrup instead of honey and coconut milk instead of heavy cream.

Gluten-Free: Remember, if keeping this dish gluten-free is a concern, be sure to buy oats that are certified gluten-free!
