I wouldn't say that this tastes like carrot cake, but I will say that it tastes GREAT! I made half a recipe, and it cooked much faster than 6 hours, so you may want to start checking on it early. Next time, I probably will double the raisins and even use golden raisins for a little more eye-appealing presentation (the dark raisins sort of look like kidney or black beans in the oatmeal). I'll most likely add more pineapple, as that flavor was crazy good in this. IMO the spices are spot on. I served this with a dollop of honey greek yogurt and a sprinkle of chopped walnuts. I portioned out what I made today into freezer containers, so this should make for a healthy/nutritional/fast breakfast reheated in the microwave. Thanks DebbiKat for a recipe that makes the slow cooker a star (and, honestly, I'm not a slow cooker fan).



5 stars. Delicious and healthy. I halved the recipe though and added more cinnamon and raisins. Great for before school healthy breakfasts.



Perfect!! I used regular applesauce and zero sugar.
