Zoats Recipe

This Zucchini Bread Oatmeal Offers Almost 24 Grams of Protein

Zoats? Sounds like a new slang word all the young kids are saying, but it's not. It's breakfast. And it's good. So, so good. It's a basic idea, really, just oatmeal combined with fresh zucchini. Wait — hear me out. It sounds gross, but come on. You can't tell me it sounded delicious when you first heard to throw kale in your smoothie. And now you can't live without your green smoothies, right? And pretty soon, you won't be able to live without this oatmeal.

This is a very simple recipe, so doll it up as much as you like. Some zoats recipes call for egg whites, but this one is made with flaxmeal, protein powder, and nuts to give you the protein punch you need and expect from the first meal of the day — almost 24 grams!

Plus, the zucchini adds fiber to your bowl, and this meal offers almost 12 grams, which is more than one-third your daily recommended amount. This breakfast is also low in sugar, under 15 grams. This is the kind of filling breakfast that'll keep you satisfied all the way until lunchtime. So grab a zucchini from your garden or the nearest farmers market and get this zoats recipe in your belly!
