Chocolate Chip Zoats





     That time when you started grinding Zucchini in your Oatmeal .... WWWHHHAAA!? You know something good is right around the corner when it sounds that weird, I had to know more and learn for myself ... thus Chocolate Chip Zoats were born!  This recipe makes 4 decadent cups, each cup has 212 calories, 18g net carbs, 21g protein ( does not include Cool Whip garnish)

Ingredients~
1 cup Water
1 cup 30 cal/cup Almond Milk
1/2 cup Gluten Free Oats, or regular Oats if desired
1/4 teaspoon Salt
8oz shredded Zucchini
4oz shredded Apple ( I like Sweet Tango, Fuji, or Honeycrisp)
3oz shredded Carrots
2 scoops Chocolate Nutrithority Protein Powder, (nutrithority.com, use code Paige15 for discount)
1 heaping unsweetened Tablespoon Cacao Powder, or Cocoa Powder
1/4 cup ground Flax Seed
1/4 cup Swerve Granular Erythritol
1/4 cup Peanut Butter Powder
Dash Cinnamon
Dash Vanilla
40 Lily's Stevia Sweetened Dark Chocolate Chips
4 Walnut Halves, crumbled to pieces
Spray Cool Whip to garnish, if desired

     Bring Water, Almond Milk, Oats, Salt, Zucchini, Apple,and Carrots to boil and lightly boil for 15-20 minutes, stirring often.  Remove from heat and stir in Protein Powder, Cacao Powder, Flax Seed, Erythritol, PB Powder, Cinnamon and Vanilla.  Cover and refrigerate til chilled.  After chilled, scoop one cup of Oat mixture and top with 10 Chocolate Chips, 1 crumbled Walnut and a dollop of Cool Whip to garnish, if desired!  Enjoy  ;)
