Baked Zoats

I absolutely adore oats; they’re so healthy, easy and versatile. Recently I’ve been experimenting with different ways to prepare them, so I thought I’d share a recipe with you that I really love – baked zoats!

Adding courgette (zucchini) to your oats is a great way to include some green veg into your diet. I know it sounds weird but trust me on this one! 

60g oats
½ courgette
1 scoop protein powder

Preheat your oven to 180c
Get your oats in a small ovenproof dish
Grate the courgette as finely as possible (or thicker if you like the added crunch) and add the courgette to the oats
Mix the protein powder in a shaker with around 200-300ml of water then pour into the oats. You don’t want the mixture to be too liquidy. Of course if you don’t use protein powder you can just add water or milk
Pop into the oven for around 15-20 minutes - this forms quite a cakey mixture, so if you want something a little runnier just reduce the cooking time
Top with whatever you like – a personal favourite of mine is fresh strawberries and cacao nibs

I love to stir through an egg white before cooking for added protein
I also love to add maca or baobab for an extra boost
