All the flavors of a morning glory muffin--nuts, carrot, spices, dried fruit--in a creamy bowl of stovetop oatmeal!
Add all ingredients except chia seeds and almond butter to a pot over medium heat. Cook until oats and carrots are soft and liquid is nearly absorbed, about 10 to 12 minutes.
Add chia seeds, and stir for about 30 seconds. Liquid should be absorbed. If you like a thicker oatmeal, add more chia seeds. If you prefer thinner oatmeal, use less.
Remove from heat, and spoon into bowls. Stir a tablespoon of almond butter into each bowl and top as desired.
*For the carrots, I prefer to throw 6 to 8 baby carrots in the food processor and chop. If you don't have access to this option, use a grater.
