Carrot Cake Oatmeal

Definitely my favorite oatmeal creation so far!!! These are creamy and sweet w/ just the right amount of citrus pop from the orange zest.

Because I make mine to refrigerate overnight, I add the raisins after cooking, but if you’ll be serving right away, I’d suggest adding them in Step 1.
