Carrot Cake in a Bowl

What’s up doc?
In a former life, I was Bugs Bunny.

I even have a special recipe tab: My Carrot Cake Recipes.
Now, there’s one more for the list:

carrotbowl1

This is based off of the wildly-popular Banana Bread in a Bowl.

And you get a vegetable serving from this breakfast!

Carrot Cake in a Bowl
(serves 1)

  • 1 banana (I used frozen)
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • 1 cup flake cereal (I used spelt flakes) (You can use gluten-free)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 large carrot, peeled
  • dash salt
  • optional: you can also add some coconut butter or oil

Steam the carrot first, then combine all of the ingredients in a food processor, blender, or Magic Bullet. Blend until smooth. Now eat! Optional: top with walnuts, shredded carrots, cinnamon, and/or raisins.

For my next carrot-cake magic trick, in honor of Bugs Bunny, I’ll make carrot cake ice cream. After all, I like putting vegetables in my ice cream, as I proved when paying homage to another favorite cartoon character—Popeye!

Spinach Ice Cream

Question of the Day:
Growing up, who were your favorite cartoon characters?

Mine were Bugs Bunny, Popeye, and Pluto. Remember my Pluto Cupcake?

Oh, and I always rooted for Tom to eat that annoying mouse, Jerry. (Would you ever have guessed I’d later become a vegan?)

    I made this FOUR times already and it’s SO yummy! Great recipe, Katie!

    The fourth time I made this, I ran out of flake cereal (I was using Special K) so I subbed in Fiber One cereal. It came out tasty still, but I had to up the milk to 1 1/2 cups. Just a tip for anyone who wants to try with a different cereal!

I have tried a few of the oatmeal recipes, the Guinness brownies and now this….I am in love!!!! I write down the recipes I tried and liked, but my stack keeps getting bigger because I fall in love with everything I try! Thank you!! 🙂
    Oh and bugs bunny and old school cartoons were always favorites of mine 🙂
