Zucchini Bread Oatmeal

142 comments

Brrr…it’s a chilly morning in our neck of the woods!

I woke up around 6am absolutely freezing, so I closed the window and pulled on the blanket that was at the end of the bed. I had another 45 minutes of cozy, warm sleep with Sketchie cuddled at my feet and Eric by my side.

The only thing that pulled me out of bed (besides Sketchie meowing and tapping my shoulder over and over) was the thought of hot oatmeal to warm me up.

Last year, I made Zucchini Bread Oatmeal and it occurred to me this morning that I hadn’t finalized the recipe and posted it on the blog. I had no idea what recipe I came up with last year, but judging from the photos, it was a bit more lengthy than what I came up with today. I’m all about the Quick and Dirty recipes lately so I tried to make it as delicious, yet simple, as I could.

The most difficult part is trying not to grate your finger off while half asleep in the morning. I recommend caffeine before taking on this challenging morning task!

I loved my original photoshoot so much, I decided to use the old pictures in today’s post!

Read: I was way too lazy for a photoshoot this morning.

IMG_8587

Keep in mind, the recipe looks a bit different the way I made it today, but I was even more pleased with the outcome this time around.

In my first photoshoot, I had a lot of fun using a bread loaf pan and spatula. I wish I had that energy today! Serves me right for staying up until 12:30am last night.

In my first attempt, I didn’t add the pat of Earth Balance on top- big mistake! It really took this bowl over the edge and I was in Heaven enjoying each buttery bite with a hint of brown sugar and crunchy pecan.

and then I burned my tongue. Of course. Will I ever learn?

If you’re feeling really crazy, why not crumble some of my Oil-Free Zucchini Walnut loaf on top?

And no, you can’t taste the zucchini at all, but it does add beautiful green flecks to the oats, not to mention extra vitamins and fibre.

I’m now warmed up and ready to tackle the work week. Let’s just not make these chilly mornings a frequent occurrence, mmm kay?

I love all your fall/chilly posts each fall. I am a Canadian, through and through, which means I actually love cold weather and the amazing changes that happen each season.. but I am living in California for a few years and the seasons are not too drastic. Your posts remind me how much I do love the Canadian weather, which sounds crazy! :)

I think I need to stop buying bowls and start buying mason jars!! This looks delicious Ange. It was chilly when I woke up too – I’d had my window open all night and woke up with goosebumps! Perhaps this is Mother Nature’s way of telling me I shouldn’t have purchased pumpkin last week? ;) (I couldn’t help it – I finally caved!!)

hmmmmm I’m just starting to warm up to zucchini (as in if zucchini and I were dogs we’d be sniffing each other, but that’s it so far) … I’ve used it as pizza topping a lot lately, and in bread, but I can’t be sure about this oatmeal you’re peddling ;) hehehe

You know, I’ve never, ever had zucchini bread! My mom never made it for our family as a child, while we lived in Southeast Asia… I wonder if it’s a North American dish? Hm, which reminds me that she never made carrot cake, either. Guess I’ve got to give your zucchini bread AND carrot cake oatmeal recipes each a try! They’re both great ways to get veggies in before lunch, hm? :) Are there any other veggie-inclusive sweet desserts out there I’ve missed out on, I wonder?! (Is pumpkin pie the only other one? //Never had that either.)

I made a zucchini bread oatmeal several months back and posted it – it’s pretty similar. I love how much they taste like the bread. I also topped mine with homemade blueberry “jam,” which was absolutely fabulous. :)

We too have that crisp fall air this morning and I absolutely LOVE it! Its still beaming sunlight though so I got a glorious morning walk/ run in. It’s making me a tad excited for class to start back up again in a week, ahh! This looks so comforting, I’m excited for all the fall recipes to start appearing all over the blog world again… pumpkin, chilli, cornbread- those are my favorite fall flavors.

I was just searching for this on your recipe page the other day! I ended up making a version of your zucchini bread with raisins and walnuts – totally addictive! Thanks for posting this as well, will definitely be trying it out :)

The feeling of fall, the chill in the air (and in the house)…I am NOT READY for it! Trust me, I am 100% a summer girl and being in Coastal! San Diego…i swear it was never above 75F for me this summer. I turned on my a/c one time, for an hour. All summer. Not that “hot” Southern Cal everyone thinks of. More like moderate and lovely, but not hot. But I don’t want fall either!

Maybe if I had a bowl of those great zuke oats of yours I’d be happier about it :)

Reply

66 Rebecca August 22, 2011

Oooh YUM! Perfect way to curb my mom’s zucchini buying mania (our fridge is STUFFED!) and my own craving for warm oats that comes like clockwork toward the end of August. I make your carrot cake oats all the time and looove how they taste plus the added veggies at breakfast. :)

Like others have said, I’m so glad I stumbled upon your website (I think I got here from a comment you made on SnackGirl.com). Anyway, this recipe really caught my eye when I read it yesterday, and I had some zucchini in the fridge, so guess what I had for breakfast this morning? Oh, yes, and it was delicious! I used steel cut oats and it worked just fine. And I felt so good to have had a vegetable for breakfast!
I’ve had fun looking around on your site, and there are many more of your recipes that I want to try. I’m not vegan or even vegetarian, but there are so many of your recipes that I can’t wait to make with what I have on hand – I hope it works!

I made this for breakfast this morning and it was amazing. I love how much flavor it has, and of course it’s great that you can sneak in all those veggies :)

Best Oatmeal recipe ever. My teenager girl discovered your site and she’s made this recipe numerous times. Great Site… LOVE this recipe.. Taste too good to be healthy… I’m gonna give your Carrot oatmeal a try next time.

I don’t have any brown sugar on hand? Would liquid sweetener work instead?

Hey Danielle, Since liquid sugar is a wet ingredient, I’m not sure as it would change the ratio of wet to dry ingredients. I would sub with another dry sugar to be sure (thats not to say it wont work I just dont know how it would turn out!)

This is soooooo good! I had it for breakfast today and i already prepared everything for tomorrow ;) But i took ground almonds and mixed them with sugar + earth balance and formed “cookie dough balls”. Can’t wait! :))
Love your blog.

I love this recipe thank you so much! It has become a regular breakfast item until the zucchinis die. My kids don’t even notice how good it is for them. Sometimes if I feel like an overachiever I add some apples cooked down with cinnamon. It’s amazing any way I serve it.

This was pretty good. One thing- I can’t remember if it was this recipe or the carrot cake oatmeal or the sweet potato breakfast casserole (we made all three recipes within like a week of each other, so they all kinda blur together…) But one or two of them had way too much liquid and not enough oats, fyi. but the flavor was good!

Do you think this could work as a baked oatmeal? Would the proportions change at all?

Hi Angela! I discovered your blog about a year ago, but this zucchini bread oatmeal recipe popped up today when I was searching for a way to use up my zucchini. I had to leave a comment because it was so delicious!! Thank you for the inspiration! :) (I also noticed that your original post was almost exactly 4 years ago, and today’s a chilly day here, too!)

Hello!

I am wondering if this recipe could be done in a slow cooker over night? I know it only takes about 10 minutes to prep but I bet most mornings that 10 minutes at the stove will feel like an eternity. :) I am trying to move away from microwaved instant oats and this seems like a super tasty way to make that shift.

Hi Jenefer, I haven’t tried this out myself, but I tend to avoid cooking oatmeal in the slow cooker because I find the clean up is a hassle (often defeating any time that I saved). That said, I’m sure there’s a way to make it work! It would be trial and error though. Please let me know if you try anything out. You could use other oatmeal slow cooker recipes online as a guide.

Hi!! Do I squeeze the moisture out of the zucchini before adding to the oatmeal or leave it as is? Thanks :)
