Have Your Cake and Eat It Too

Do you like cake? Do you like cake for breakfast? Thought so!
Actually, I'm not a big cake guy... it's a texture thing. That being said, though, I LOVE carrot cake! Dense, moist, sweet and spicy; there's nothing like a cold slab of carrot cake to hit the spot. But, alas, you can't eat carrot cake for breakfast, right? Wrong!
World, meet the carrot cake sandwich!Made with spreadable cheese, carrots, and just a little bit of sugar or sweetener, this baby isn't just good, it's good for you! Make it the night before so it has time to get all cold and mushy and delicious as the perfect compliment to a strong cup of coffee ;)

- 2 slices wheat bread
- 2 wedges spreadable Light Swiss cheese, or cream cheese

- sugar/sweetener to taste
- cinnamon, ginger, allspice
- raisins
- 1 large carrot, shredded
- 1 tsp vanilla extract

Shred the carrot and mix it with the vanilla extract and half of the sugar/sweetener. Mix the cheese with the spices and the other half of the sugar/sweetener. Spread one piece of bread with the cheese and then top with raisins. Load the second slice of bread with the sweetened carrots, and then slap it all together to mak
e a sandwich. You can eat it right away or wrap it up and toss it in the fridge to let the flavors mix and all. In the morning, cut it diagonally and enjoy with a cup of good coffee. You WILL be back for more!
