Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup finely shredded zucchini
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 cup frozen tart cherries defrosted and quartered
  • 1/2 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/16 teaspoon sea salt

US Customary - Metric

Instructions

  1. Place the zucchini in a lint free towel, and wring the towel to remove as much moisture as possible

  2. Transfer the drained zucchini to a small saucepan. Mix in the oats. Pour the almond milk into the pan. Cook the mixture over the medium heat, using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon stir the mixture frequently, until the moisture has evaporated. About 4-7 minutes

  3. Remove the pan from the heat. Stir in the cherries, cocoa powder, Truvía®, vanilla extract, almond extract, and salt until well combined. Add the chocolate chips and stir them until evenly distributed - don't completely melt them

  4. Enjoy immediately!
