Zucchini Banana Bread Oatmeal

For those of you who let breakfast slip your mind, this recipe is for you! The ease of this recipe, plus the sweet flavors that remind you of grandma’s freshly made zucchini banana bread are a guaranteed way to make breakfast unforgettable!

Like many recipes on the blog, this steel cut oatmeal recipe is customizable! We start with a base of our organic oatmeal and then add in fresh grated summer zucchini and banana. Then we added in brown sugar since it gives this recipe the most traditional zucchini banana bread flavor. However, coconut sugar or maple syrup work, too! If you are reducing your sugar intake, make this with an extra ripe banana, and you won’t even need to add any sweetener.

We finished this sweet breakfast oatmeal off with a dollop of peanut butter and crushed peanuts for crunch. However, any nut or seed butter would work as a replacement. We have even finished it off with coconut butter (kind of like an icing) and boy, oh boy, is it delicious!

You can add other fun mix-ins like mini chocolate chips, walnuts, or even blueberries! If you are into meal prepping, then this oatmeal recipe is perfect! You can batch prepare this! Add all of your ingredients to a pot on the stovetop and then follow the same process. (You might need to add a splash of water). Then, evenly divide the oatmeal among your mason jars, allow to cool and then seal up! You will have a delicious grab-n-go breakfast ready at your fingertips each morning! Pretty sweet, huh?!
