1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons light melted butter
2 cups old fashioned rolled oats, gluten free if desired
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon allspice
½ teaspoon ginger
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup finely diced honeycrisp apples (from 1 medium honeycrisp apple, diced)
Optional: 1/4 cup raisins
Optional: 1/3 cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts
For the cinnamon vanilla glaze:
2 tablespoons vanilla or nonfat plain yogurt
1 tablespoon powdered sugar substitute (I used Lakanto)
1-2 teaspoons unsweetened almond milk, to thin
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
Optional: Thinly sliced apples
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 8x8 inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
*First, measure out 1 heaping cup of shredded zucchini from your medium zucchini, then place shredded zucchini in a paper towel or cheese cloth and squeeze out all of the moisture/water. This is very important!
In a medium bowl, mix together the shredded zucchini, applesauce, eggs, almond milk, maple syrup, vanilla, and melted and cooled butter or coconut oil until well combined.
Next stir in dry ingredients: oats, baking powder, cinnamon, allspice, ginger, nutmeg and salt; stir well to combine. Fold in diced apples, raisins and pecans/walnuts.
Spread out oatmeal in a prepared pan. Add thinly sliced apples on top if you’d like. Bake for 35-40 minutes until edges are slightly golden and center is set.
In a small bowl, mix together the greek yogurt, powdered sugar, milk, vanilla and cinnamon; mix to combine. Add more milk if necessary so you can drizzle on top of the oatmeal. Serves 6-8. Enjoy!
