1/2 banana, sliced

1/4 cup grated zucchini

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

pinch of sea salt

1 cup of unsweetened almond milk (or water)

1/2 Tablespoon chopped walnuts

1 Tablespoon almond butter or another type of nut butter


Add oats, banana, zucchini, cinnamon and sea salt to a medium pot.

Add almond milk/water and stir to combine.

Heat over medium-high heat for 8-10 minutes or until all the liquid has been absorbed.

sure to stir the oats several times while cooking to make sure the banana slices melt into the oats and oats don’t stick to the pot.
