Zucchini Cauli Protein Paleo Oats

Hello, hello sweet friends! I’m in LA working Expo West for Mikey’s, but I thought I’d share with you one of my favorite paleo “oats” recipes made sweet with cinnamon + cauli + zucchini! I promise you, you won’t even know you’re getting in a full 2 cups of brekkie before you’ve finished your morning cup of joe 😉

It’s a super simple recipe that requires only six ingredients, and you don’t even necessarily have to chop your own veggies (but I do recommend it, because it tastes fresher!). What you can expect: good fats, yummy carbs, and lots of satiating protein. You can’t go wrong!

Skittish of having “sweet” veggies in the morning? Don’t worry, I’ve been there- aren’t veggies just supposed to be savory? With the recipe, you really won’t even notice! I triple dog dare you to give it a go hehe.

Let me know what you think by commenting below or on my Instagram post! Lots of love to you all!

Zucchini Cauli Oat-less Oats

Serves 1

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup cauliflower rice (can use from frozen)
  • 1 cup shredded yellow or green zucchini squash
  • 1 pastured organic egg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp organic vanilla bean powder or a few beans scraped from the pod
  • 2 tbsp-1/4 cup Imlak’esh Sacha Inchi powder (or your favorite protein powder)
  • Ghee/coconut oil for greasing skillet

Directions:

  1. Heat a medium skillet with ghee/coconut oil on medium
  2. Add cauliflower rice to skillet and cook for 5-6 minutes, until lightly browned (this is to ensure the cauliflower is fully cooked when consuming to avoid any upset tummies)
  3. Once cauliflower rice is cooked, transfer the rice to a bowl and add zucchini, egg, cinnamon, vanilla, and Sacha Inchi/protein powder
  4. Stir and combine well, then turn the burner on medium and reheat skillet
  5. Add zucchini/cauli mixture into the pan and let sit like an omelet at first
  6. After a few minutes, give it a stir like scrambled eggs, cooking the mixture until it looks less wet and more firm, like scrambled eggs
  7. Transfer to a bowl, top with desired toppings, and enjoy!
