Zuchini Oatmeal

I love oatmeal, but it is a very dense food. Sometimes to expand the volume of my meal or decrease the density of the oats I add zucchini ( and a few other things!)

Higher carb version:
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup finely grated zucchini (yellow blends better than green)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt (my oats are unsalted)
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 scoop protein powder (optional)
1 chopped fruit (I prefer apricot or nectarine)
1/2 cup water
Splash of non dairy milk (I use unsweetened cashew milk)

Mix the whole mess up and bring to a simmer for a few minutes! That’s all!

Lower carb Version (barely noticeable difference!)

1/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup finely grated zucchini
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp stevia or Coconut sap (I use the Naked Coconut brand)
1 scoop protein powder
1 chopped fruit
1/2 cup water
Splash of non dairy milk
