Zoatmeal A.K.A Zoats A.K.A Zucchini Oats A.K.A Zucchini Oatmeal Recipe (Contest Prep Friendly!!) 


Since my carbs and calories are restricted preparing for my show I love to get creative with VOLUME!

Case in point: my morning oatmeal, which has turned into zoatmeal!

Because I eat essentially “unlimited” veggies in my diet this is a great way to add volume and keep me happy!


1/2 cup oatmeal (dry measure)

100 g grated zucchini

Optional: flavor extracts, cinnamon, 0 calorie sweetener, cocoa powder, 0 calorie syrups, Walden Farms products

To Make: 

  1. Add zucchini and oatmeal to a microwave safe bowl, stir, and cover with water
  2. Microwave for 4-5 minutes or until you’re happy with the consistency of the “zoatmeal”
  3. Add in your favorite flavorings- currently my go to is vanilla extract, butter extract, Splenda, cinnamon, & salt (the vanilla and butter extract combo gives the “cake batter” taste and I love the salty & sweet combination!)


Mix it up by adding in different flavor extracts, syrups, low calorie condiments, protein powder, etc!

Protein Powder: Splash with cold water or almond milk, mix in protein (this keeps it from going lumpy!)

Walden Farms Spreads: Have you ever added the raspberry/strawberry spread to oats? So good!

0 Calorie Syrups: The 0 calorie DaVinci coffee syrups come in so many flavors and are the perfect add in

Cocoa Powder: I love chocolate everything, add sweetener and vanilla extract to get a true chocolate taste


100 g of zucchini yields only 16 calories (.2 f, 1.2 p, 3.3 c), along with the oatmeal which has 150 calories (3 f, 5 p, 27 c) for a total of only 166 calories, barely adding any calories to your regular oatmeal, but adding LOTS of volume

I know it sounds weird, but seriously, don’t knock it til you try it, I’m obsessed and will never go back!

  • Was just about to have second breakfast of oats and protein powder when I saw this. So I made this instead. I like it. I think I’ll tweak it a bit to my personal liking but really enjoy the mix of the oars and zucchini.

    • So happy to hear you enjoyed it girl! I would love to know what tweaks you made, any recommendations? 🙂

  • Life changer!! Zuchinni has always been a staple food of mine but it wasn’t until this week that I tried them in my oats!

    I keep my bowl simple, 130 gram of oats, 100 gram zuchinni, water, a bit of vanilla flavored protein powder and cinnamon. Very tasty!

    Oh and I don’t add the zuchinni until the last microwave minute so it stays a bit chrunchier!

  • Looks delish!!! Trying it tomorrow!! I’d try grated carrots and almond extract, cinnamon and nutmeg for carrot cake oats on a higher carb day.. Maybe add 4 chopped walnuts too?
