This unusual chocolate zucchini oatmeal is inspired by a vegetable loaf. Created by the blog Reclaiming Yesterday, the chocolate zucchini bread porridge is one way to spruce up your morning routine. This makes an especially hearty morning meal for chilly weather days.

Due to the presence of raw cocoa, the dish has health benefits such as reduced inflammation and calmed nerves. If you want to try this chocolate zucchini oatmeal at home, you will need rolled oats, water, milk (or a milk alternative), grated zucchini, coconut sugar, raw cocoa powder (or unsweetened cocoa), cinnamon, vanilla extract and salt. The oats were also soaked overnight in an effort to improve digestibility, but it is not a necessary step in the recipe.
