Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Bring water to a boil in a heavy, large saucepan, and stir in the oats. Reduce heat to a simmer, and cook oats until they begin to thicken, about 10 minutes; mix in the apple, carrot, raisins, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and salt. Let the oats simmer until tender, about 20 more minutes.
- While the oats are simmering, melt butter in a skillet over medium-low heat, and stir in the pecans. Toast the nuts until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 5 minutes, then sprinkle with brown sugar and stir until sugar has melted and coated the pecans.
- Serve in bowls, each topped with about 2 tablespoons of the pecan mixture and a dollop of yogurt.

"This recipe was very simple. After I topped the oatmeal with the pecan mixture in our bowls, we just poured a little cold fat free evaporated milk over the top and ate it like that, instead of yogurt...." See more We loved it. For us, there were no leftovers. Between my two boys and I, we ate every little bit. It was wonderful."
"Wow - this is really good and very filling! This makes a lot so you'll definitely have enough leftover for future mornings. But, if you like carrot cake that won't be a problem! I cut back on the ging..." See moreer and added some vanilla. I used a combination of walnuts and pecans, plus since I like things a bit sweeter I used vanilla yogurt vs. plain yogurt. I may add a little crushed pineapple to the reheated oatmeal for even more of a "carrot cake" taste and to up the sweet factor. Thanks for a great recipe!"
