Zucchini Baked Oatmeal

Zucchini Baked Oatmeal is the perfect way to use up that extra zucchini from the garden!

Zucchini Baked Oatmeal

Have you ever tried baked oatmeal? If you have not tried baked oatmeal you need to! It has turned many oatmeal haters into oatmeal lovers. 

Baked oatmeal is a cross between a bowl of oatmeal and a dessert. It has a totally different texture than a bowl of oatmeal. Baked oatmeal is not mushy at all. 

We love baked oatmeal all year long. Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal and Banana Baked Oatmeal are two of our year round favorites. 

Zucchini Baked Oatmeal Recipe

During the summer I love to incorporate summer produce into baked oatmeal. 

Strawberry and Cream Baked Oatmeal, Peaches and Cream Baked Oatmeal, Triple Berry Baked Oatmeal, and Raspberry Baked Oatmeal are all summer favorites at our house. 

Today I am sharing another summer favorite. Zucchini Baked Oatmeal. 

This recipe is like zucchini bread in the form of baked oatmeal. 

For this recipe I added chocolate chips for a zucchini chocolate chip baked oatmeal, but you could easily leave the chocolate out and add cinnamon to it for a classic zucchini bread flavor. 

If you have extra zucchini from your garden this is a great recipe to change up your basic breakfast.
