Recipe

I have been on an oatmeal kick lately since it finally started to cool down in LA. October was miserably hot and I couldn't be happier to embrace cooler weather, even if it only lasts for a few days. With cooler weather, I find myself reaching for oatmeal in the morning and am always on the look out for new recipes to keep things fresh.

Inspired by one of my breakfast favorites, zucchini bread, this simple and healthy zucchini oatmeal is a great way to sneak in some veggies with breakfast. The basic recipe pulls in the traditional flavors of zucchini bread - cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, and lots of shredded zucchini. From there, I highly encourage playing around with your favorite toppings - pecans, almond butter, shredded coconut, raisins, or even some chocolate chips.

Looking for more ways to sneak veggies into your morning oats? Try this Baked Carrot Cake Oatmeal with Cream Cheese Glaze, it's one of my all time favorites.
