I’m sure this is nothing new to y’all, but I have to admit, I got a little sick of oats for awhile..

Until my friend began making something like this every day, and intrigued me to begin doing it again. Sometimes all you need is some time off..{applicable in SO many things haha}

anyways..I haven’t been very good about getting in a lot of veggies over summer..unless I have a salad with dinner. So when I remembered how delicious this was, and that I’d be getting in some veggies secretly IN THE MORNING, I was sold.

And naturally I wanted to share with you guys.

And as if oats aren’t filling enough..these have both zucchini and raw bran added to them. Hellooo fiber and full tummy! (I LOVE adding raw bran to anything lately, especially high protein things to help digestion).

I’m talkin THIRTEEN grams of fiber in just this one serving. And 9g protein without adding any extra protein powder or anything.. #winning

Best part of it, it’s so versatile!

Make it sweet with coconut, cinnamon and sweetener..

Or make it spicy with tumeric and sriracha! Did you miss my homemade sriracha?! It’s almost gone! (Oh and I’ve been reading how good tumeric is for you so I’ve been trying to add it to things as I see fit).
