Carrot Cake baked porridge

No one really knows where the carrot cake came from, but it’s got carrot in so it must be healthy right? This carrot cake baked porridge is so good and the cashew frosting on top adds the perfect amount of sweetness. If you don’t have time to make the cashew frosting then add some peanut butter and you are good to go.

The texture of baked porridge is significantly different to normal porridge you would cook on the hob or in the microwave. The texture is fluffy and much more cake like which we absolutely love as it makes you feel like you are eating cake for breakfast and who doesn’t want cake for breakfast?

Let us know if you decide to bake this porridge as we would love to know! If you take any photos then be sure to tag us in them on Twitter and Instagram, you can find us at @threebrits.

GirlBOSS- Niomi Smart


We were browsing Eventbrite like we regularly do looking for interesting events to attend. If you don’t know what Eventbrite is it is a website where you can be the host of an event or purchase tickets for events (its great and we are so addicted it even featured in our September favourites). You use the search engine to type in the sort of events you want to attend and some are even free. When we came across the GirlBoss event with Niomi Smart we knew we had to attend.

We have been following Niomi across all her social media platforms for quite some time but if you don’t know who Niomi is she is a lifestyle Blogger and YouTuber. The tickets were just over £5 and the event was being held at the Hoxton in Shoreditch, a venue we had not been to before.

The event was due to start at 6:30PM and when we arrived (10 minutes late) everyone was already seated. We walked into the kitchen area to grab a drink and Niomi advised us on what drink we should choose. They had wine on offer but we opted for a delicious Sibberi water which was naturally flavoured with maple. We thought it was great that Niomi was there welcoming the guests as they arrived and it turns out she is even lovelier in real life.

Niomi is an incredibly genuine and inspiring girl and her attitude to life is truly infectious. We left the event feeling more motivated than ever. It’s all down to hard work, being consistent and being as authentic as possible in everything we post.

We will definitely be keeping an eye out for more GirlBoss events in the future and we think you should as well.
