  • Makes: 1 serving
  • Serving Size: 3/4 cup oats and 1 hard-boiled egg
  • Preparation Time: 5 minutes
  • Cooking Time: 5 minutes


1/2 cup finely shredded unpeeled zucchini
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 Tbsp. zero-calorie sweetener (such as Truvia)
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1/8 tsp. almond extract
1/16 tsp. sea salt
1/2 Tbsp. stevia-sweetened chocolate chips
1 1/2 Tbsp. dry-roasted almonds, roughly chopped
1 hard-boiled egg


  1. Place the shredded zucchini in a lint-free towel, and wring as much liquid from it as possible.
  2. Transfer the zucchini to a small soup pot. Add the oats and the almond milk. Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring the mixture frequently with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon, until the liquid has evaporated.
  3. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the cocoa powder, zero-calorie sweetener, vanilla extract, almond extract, and salt until well combined. Stir in the chocolate chips; don’t overmix.
  4. Transfer the “zoats” to a serving bowl and top with the almonds. Serve with a hard-boiled egg and enjoy immediately.

Protein Power

For oats that don't include protein powder, serve with a hard-boiled egg for a balanced breakfast.
