Creamy zucchini oats made flavourful 3 ways! Try peanut butter and jelly, chocolate and chai berry! Or try it as a regular way to eat oatmeal!
Ingredients
  • Base:
  • 1 Zucchini (optional)!
  • 1 Cup of oats (I used instant steel cut oats)
  • 1 Cup of water
  • 1 Cup of plant milk (or use all milk or all water)
  • 2 Ripe bananas
  • 3 Tbsp chia seeds
  • Maple syrup (optional)*
  • PB&J
  • ¼ frozen raspberries
  • 1 spoon of peanut butter
  • dash of cinnamon
  • Chai Berry
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp cardomon
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • ⅛ tsp (pinch of nutmeg)
  • ½ Cup berries
  • Chocolate
  • 1 Tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 Tbsp Maple syrup
  • Spoon of almond or peanut butter
  • Sprinkle of cacao nibs and coconut
  • Other optional toppings: flax, hemp seeds
Instructions
  1. If making zucchini oatmeal, use a fine grater to shred the zucchini (the thinner the better). Add to a pot and cook down for about 2 minutes.
  2. Add oats, water and plant milk and bring to a boil, then let simmer until cooked. Alternatively follow the package directions on your oatmeal.
  3. Divide oatmeal into 3 portions, or alternatively save the other 2 for later! Add toppings!
Notes
I find the bananas make it sweet enough! But my expert non-vegan tasters think otherwise. I recommend trying, and adding sweetener to taste.
