Zoats is a breakfast dish that's made using oats, shredded zucchini, and a non-dairy milk of your choice. In this recipe, plain zoats are transformed into a decadent and chocolatey breakfast experience with a pudding-like texture from the added chia seeds. And because chocolate and fruit were made to be together, it's topped with an assortment of fresh fruit that can easily be adjusted to your liking.
