The kind folks at MyOatmeal.com sent me some of their products and I’m over the moon about them. This company makes your custom blend for you with over 22 billion different combinations. You get to choose what kind of oats, natural flavors, fruits, seeds, and sweetener. You even get to name your blend and they put it on the label – how cool is that? I’ve loved everything I’ve tried from them so far and plan on making another order soon.

The products I’ve tried are Carrot Cake and Cake Batter oatmeal as well as their PB Lean (peanut flour similar to PB2). I’ll review the other two products soon.
The Carrot Cake flavor is SO good. The flavor is really subtle and doesn’t taste artificial at all. Best of all, you could customize it to mix it with the vanilla frosting flavor, snickerdoodle flavor, or add raisins & walnuts. I tried to get creative and came up with a pancake recipe that tastes just like a slice of Carrot Cake – complete with the best part (the cream cheese frosting of course).
Carrot Cake Protein Pancakes
- 1/2 Cup Carrot Cake Flavor Oats *
- 4 Egg Whites
- 2 Tbs of Non-Fat Greek Yogurt
- 1 Tbs Vanilla Protein Powder (Optional)
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- Dash of Cinnamon and Nutmeg
- Sweetener to Taste (I used one NuNaturals Stevia packet as the myoatmeal.com oats are already sweetened)
- 2 Tbs Fat Free Cream Cheese
- 1/8-1/4 Cup of Sugar Free or Low Sugar Maple Syrup
- Raisins and Walnuts (Optional)
*Note – if you don’t have myoatmeal.com oats – sub Old Fashioned Oats with 1/4 Cup Grated Carrot and some extra sweetener.
In Blender or Food Processor (I used my Magic Bullet), blend everything except for the Cream Cheese, Syrup, and toppings until smooth. Cook on a griddle and flip when batter bubbles. For Cream Cheese “Frosting”, microwave syrup and cream cheese in a bowl for 30 seconds and mix. Top with raisins and walnuts if you so choose. Enjoy!
