Healthy Zucchini Bread Steel Cut Oatmeal
This Zucchini Bread Steel Cut Oatmeal is the yummiest way to get veggies in for breakfast. The recipe is easy, vegan, gluten-free, and can be made in a large batch for meal prep!
Grate zucchini using a cheese grater. If you don't have a cheese grater, you can also shred the zucchini with a julienne peeler or in a food processor.
Once zucchini is grated, place steel cut oats, chia seeds, and ground cinnamon into a large saucepan. Give these dry ingredients a stir to combine.
Then, pour nut milk and vanilla extract over the steel cut oats. Bring oats to a boil, stirring in grated zucchini. Reduce heat and continue to cook, stirring frequently, until all the liquid has been absorbed, about 15-20 minutes.
*Cooking times may vary depending on the type of steel cut oats you use. I personally love these quick-cooking steel cut oats from Bob's Red Mill since they cook really fast! If you're using regular steel cut oats, it will take about 15-20 minutes for the liquid to absorb.
*Leftovers will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for at least 4 days. Reheat on the stovetop or in the microwave. Tip: keep any toppings separate, and only add them at time of serving.
*The base recipe has no added sweeteners. Use chocolate chips or a drizzle of maple syrup to add sweetness!
