Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal Muffins

Anyone else already putting plans in place for Easter? Do you have family visiting? Or do you go visit family? I've got a million things to do these next few weeks, so I'm already starting to plan what I'll be contributing to the Easter feast! Carrot cake is always a classic this time of year, and turning it into a delicious (but healthy) breakfast just seems like a win-win! Is it too early to send off my Instacart order...? 😂
