Tis the season for all things zucchini!
Maybe your garden is overflowing like crazy? Or perhaps you’re like me and can’t resist buying a wee bit too much at the store? Either way … allow me to introduce you to a delightful little breakfast – this zucchini bread steel cut oatmeal!
Packed with 1 ½ cups of zucchini, this oatmeal definitely is filled with plenty of the green stuff.
And, of course, is quite reminiscent of classic zucchini bread. Filled with rich vanilla, warm cinnamon and a bit of bakery flavored goodness from some almond extract, it’s cozy, delicious and like a giant breakfast hug.
And, um, no. You cannot taste the zucchini. <— Just like in the bread!
It’s creamy, it’s dreamy, it’s healthy … and it has that awesome sort of chewy texture that makes steel cut oats so darn fantastic in the first place.
Not to mention that it reheats beauuuutifully. Make a big ol’ batch on the weekend (or whenever you have time!) and it’s ready to go throughout the week.
Oh breakfast, I sure do love you. With some warm coffee please and thank you!
Psst. Loving the idea of cake for breakfast? Then you should also check out this zucchini bread smoothie and this roasted strawberries and cream steel cut oatmeal. Both are SO good and have that sort of dessert for breakfast feel!
