Zucchini Coconut Bread “Zoats”

Zoats: Zucchini and Oats cooked together

I was very curious when first hearing about this. But my curiosity led me to make them, and boy was I ever so thankful I did! They are a delicious take on your normal bowl of oats, except for more filling, voluminous, creamy, and all around delicious!

Since I was experimenting for the very first time, I decided, what comes to my mind when I think of zucchini? Well, the only time I really eat it is when I make my zucchini coconut bread! So, that is the flavor I decided to reconstruct in this oatmeal :)

The coconut flavor mixed with the creaminess of the oats and zucchini were to die for. And it was so much more filling than regular oatmeal! Not to mention, more delicious with a flavor like this!

Zucchini is such a healthy addition to your typical oats. It is a vegetable for one thing, so it allows you to get in some greens first thing in the morning without feeling like you are eating vegetables for breakfast! There are also so many benefits that come with them:

1) 1 cup only has 36 calories  2) lowers cholesterol through high fiber and vitamin C and A   3)Anti-Inflammatory    4)High in manganese   5) lowers blood pressure

So, what are you waiting for?? If you haven’t had these before, you should most certainly make some zoats soon!
