Oats are incredibly versatile. I eat oats every day in my diet, I never get sick of them because I continually make up new variations to have them. Currently I am eating this exact recipe every afternoon before hitting the gym for my weights session.
When I say recipe I mean I am eating these exact ingredients – for this particular post I am showing you the pretty side of oats and what you can do with them. At the bottom I will show you the exact same ingredients and exact same quantities but how I eat them every day.
- Raw Rolled Oats – 30g
- Zucchini grated- about 60 to 70g (small to medium sized)
- Chocolate Protein Powder half scoop (approx 15g) – the one I use is Protein Supplies Australia
- Strawberries diced – 75g
- More strawberries – 75g
- Waldenfarms Calorie free chocolate sauce (order online or get from a number of health food stores)

Pre-heat fan forced oven on bake at 200 degrees.
Place oats, grated zucchini, protein powder into a bowl. Add just enough water to cover the protein powder… about 125ml and mix well until protein powder has dissolved. Add in diced strawberries and stir through. (water amount is very dependent on the consistency you prefer at the end!)
Place bowl in microwave and cook for 1 minute – this speeds up the cooking process and helps the oats along.
Obtain a normal muffin tray, spray lightly with olive oil and spoon mixture evenly into muffin holes.
Place in oven and cook for approx 35 to 40 mins or until puddings look mostly formed. The longer you cook them the harder they will eventually go.
Remove from oven and leave cool on a bench for 10 minutes.
Remove from muffin tray individually with a spoon.
Top with more strawberries and a drizzle of Waldenfarms calorie free chocolate sauce.
Ta-DAH Amazing right! So simple, but if you are like me and you are a little time poor and don’t care what your food looks like, then here is a picture of those exact same ingredients and the exact same quantities but just cooked the whole way through in the microwave. Drum roll please *drummmmm rollllll*………
It’s sooooooo pretty right?
