Servings: 3 cups


  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup zucchini shredded
  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • 5+ butterfly pea flowers


  • Bring water to a boil and add zucchini, steel cut oats, and butterfly pea flowers.
    Note: I saved a sprinkle of zucchini to stir in at the end for a brighter green color.
  • Adjust to a simmer and cook 20+ minutes (with the lid off) stirring frequently.
  • Once it has reached the desired consistency + texture remove from heat.
  • Add your favorite sweetener + toppings — I used a drizzle of maple syrup, a few squeezes of lemon juice, pumpkin seeds, shredded coconut, and blueberries!
  • Store any leftovers in the fridge. I like to eat cold oats the next day with yogurt and other toppings.
