Single serve protein baked oats with zucchini and banana taste just like vanilla muffin but are packed with fruit + veggies! Made in a blender, have protein power instead of eggs, vegan and no added sugar. The ultimate easy breakfast treat!


  • 1/2 cup (50g) rolled oats
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup (75g) zucchini, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla protein powder*
  • 1 teaspoon peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds (optional)
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • Chocolate chips, to sprinkle


  1. Preheat oven to 350F/180C and grease a small ramekin with oil/ spray.
  2. Add rolled oats, protein powder, banana, zucchini, protein powder, baking powder, nut butter, chia seeds (if using) and milk in a high speed blender. Note: a smaller blender cup works best since the amount is so little.*
  3. Blend on high speed for about one minute until the mixture is well combined and pourable/ spoonable.
  4. Pour into ramekin and sprinkle with chocolate chips if desired.
  5. Place in the oven for 30-35 minutes (or until fully cooked).
  6. Eat plain or drizzle with nut butter on top if desired, spoon and enjoy!


Protein powder: you can use plant based or a whey protein. My personal favorite is vanilla pea protein but I also love vanilla coconut collagen peptides for this recipe. 

To make sweeter: add 1 teaspoon honey/ maple syrup or stevia.
