My dears, I know it’s been a while, but today I’m pleased to share yet another Basic Recipe for a Power Breakfast with you that also fits beautifully into Phase 2 of the Sugar-Free Challenge: Zoats!

Never heard of them? “Zoats” is the name for oatmeal with shredded zucchini added just before the end of the cooking time. It’s not a new food trend by any measure, but I only recently came across it. And it’s so easy: quickly shredding some zucchini into my oatmeal was about as difficult as popping a sweet potato into the oven. :-)The comparison applies in other ways as well! Zucchini is to Zoats what sweet potato is to my Sweet Potato Brownies – that is, you really can’t taste it! Zucchini in general doesn’t have a strong flavor, and thanks to the hearty oats, nut milk, and toppings, you won’t even notice the extra serving of vegetables we’ve snuck into your breakfast. :-) (For tips on how to get more veggies into your daily diet, check out this post.) 

Here I used kumquats, blood orange segments, physalis, and chopped walnuts as toppings:Have fun experimenting and enjoy!
