Cozy Zucchini Oatmeal
A creamy and comforting bowl of oatmeal, mixed with grated zucchini. This oatmeal tastes like zucchini bread in a bowl. Serve with chopped walnuts, raisins or other toppings of choice.
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup zucchini, lightly packed
- 2 cups plant-based milk of choice
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 2-3 large Medjool dates, pitted and chopped
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
- Pinch nutmeg (optional)
- Nut or seed butter
- Raisins or more chopped dates
- Chocolate Chips
- Butter or margarine
Add the oats, zucchini, chia seeds, milk and dates to a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir together and bring to a low boil. Reduce heat to low-medium and let simmer uncovered for 5-10 minutes or until the liquid has been absorbed and the oats are your desired consistency.
Serve with toppings of choice.
I love this oatmeal with sunflower seed butter. Almond butter would be good too.
I tried this recipe using unsweetened soy milk and almond milk with success. You can try other plant-based milks if desired.
Feel free to replace the dates with maple syrup to taste.
