Chocolate Zucchini Baked Oatmeal

Chocolate and Zucchini are combined in this Chocolate Zucchini Baked Oatmeal for an easy and delicious breakfast! 

Chocolate Zucchini Baked Oatmeal

Last week I shared a recipe for Zucchini Baked Oatmeal. This week I decided to change it up slightly and add chocolate to that same basic zucchini oatmeal.

The result is another delicious baked oatmeal perfect for a summer breakfast! 

It is no secret that my family and my readers love baked oatmeal. I have shared over fifteen different baked oatmeal recipes.

Baked oatmeal is a cross between a bowl of oatmeal and a dessert. The texture is totally different than a regular bowl of oatmeal. 

Baked oatmeal has turned many oatmeal haters into people that loved oatmeal.
