For the Zucchini Oatmeal:

  • 1 Large Zucchini, peeled
  • 1 cup Steel Cut Oats
  • 2 cup Plant Milk of Choice
  • 2 cup Filtered Water
  • 23 tsp Cinnamon (optional, to taste)
  • 24 tbsp Maple Syrup (optional, to taste)

For the Blueberry Chia Jam:

  • 12 oz Blueberries, Frozen or Fresh
  • 1/4 cup Chia Seeds
  • Juice of 1/2 Lemon
  • 2 tbsp Maple Syrup (optional, to taste)


  1. Peel the Zucchini and grate it over a large pot. 
  2. Add in the Steel Cut Oats, Cinnamon, Plant Milk, Water, and Sweetener, if you are using any. Stir well and bring to a boil.
  3. Let simmer for 20 minutes, stirring frequently. 
  4. In the meantime, prepare the Blueberry Chia Jam. Add 12 oz of Blueberries to a medium pot with the Lemon Juice, Chia Seeds, and optional Maple Syrup and stir over Medium Heat, until the Blueberries have thawed and the mixture has thickened. (Note: It is best to stop cooking the jam while it is still a little runnier than your liking, as the mixture will thicken as it cools).
  5. Once the Oats and Jam have finished cooking, remove from heat and serve immediately, if eating warm. Top as desired.
  6. For meal prep, let both mixtures cool completely, then layer into 4 jars or tupperware containers, adding any additional toppings, if desired.


Cinnamon may be substituted for any other spice of your liking.

Blueberries can be substituted for any other berry of your liking.

Keep in mind that both the Steel Cut Oats and the Chia Jam will thicken as they cool, so it is best to stop the simmering process a little bit before these mixtures reach your desired consistency.

* Steel Cut oats can be substituted for Quick Oats or Rolled Oats, but keep in mind that the Zucchini will not incorporate as much. Follow the instructions on your Oat container for proper cooking times and liquid ratios.
