I had a zucchini that needed to be used and wanted to use it in a creative way. I decided why not add it to my oatmeal in the morning. I had seen this done several times before and have always wanted to give this a try, especially because I love adding veggies to my breakfast in subtle ways. I love the pop of green color the zucchini gives to the oatmeal and it tastes more sweet than savory!
This recipe was adapted from here:
- 1/3 cup GF rolled oats
- 1/3 cup – 1/2 cup almond milk (depending on how thick you like it)
- 1/4 cup zucchini, grated
- 1 tbsp ground flax seeds
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- dash of sea salt
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/2 tbsp raisins
- 1/2 tbsp pecans
- 1 tsp shredded coconut
- Combine all ingredients except raisins, pecans, and coconut, and stir together.
- Place in the fridge overnight.
- In the morning, Top the oats with raisins, pecans, and coconut and enjoy!
