Peanut Butter & Oat Carrot Cake Breakfast Pudding with Candied Oats

Print This Recipe Print This Recipe

This recipe is one of six recipes developed by noted food bloggers for the Peanut Butter & Co. and Bob’s Red Mill Nuts About Oats Recipe Contest. The recipes were created using Peanut Butter & Co. peanut butter and Bob’s Red Mill® Extra Thick Rolled Oats. The contest was a part of our 2012 yearlong initiative “Build a Better Breakfast with Peanut Butter.”

The great thing about breakfast is that both savory and sweet inspiration work well. Carrot cake inspired this dish, but even so, it’s full of healthy things and only subtly sweetened; really I based it on carrot cake just so I could get an extra veggie in at breakfast.

For this recipe I made coconut milk by blending shredded unsweetened coconut with water. I left the coconut bits in the milk (to give the pudding more texture)

Procedure

1. Put the coconut and water into a blender; put the lid on but take out the small plastic insert (so steam can escape), put a towel on top, and process for 2 minutes while holding the lid down. Transfer 3 tablespoons of coconut milk to a medium bowl, then transfer 2 cups to a medium saucepan, leaving the rest (about 2 cups) in the blender.

2. To the bowl with the 3 tablespoons coconut milk, whisk in 1/4 cup peanut butter, 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla bean paste; set aside.

Transfer the oat mixture to the saucepan that you put the 2 cups of coconut milk into, and stir in the carrot; bring to a boil over medium heat and then cook until thickened, about 2 minutes more, stirring constantly. Stir in the remaining 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste and pour the pudding into 6 individual serving dishes; top pudding evenly with the peanut butter coconut topping.

    Oats are grown in temperate regions. They have a lower summer heat requirement and greater tolerance of rain than other cereals, such as wheat, rye or barley, so are particularly important in areas with cool, wet summers, such as Northwest Europe; they are even being grown in Iceland to help prolong the growing season.”^..-
