A giant healthy bowl of chocolate goodness? Yes! See instructions for variation ideas. I use gluten-free oat bran.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 -4 ounces shredded zucchini
  • 60 g oat bran
  • 2 -4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 34 cups water (or liquid of choice, dairy, soymilk, etc)
  • artificial sweetener, of choice to taste (I use Sweet Leaf Liquid Chocolate Flavor Stevia)


  1. Mix everything in a big microwave safe bowl.
  2. Microwave on high for 5 minutes or until done, stopping to stir a few times.
  3. Top with nuts, nut butters, or more chocolate!
  4. Fun variations add ins: ginger and apricots, dried or fresh cranberries or blueberries, cinnamon and bacon, fresh cherries with almonds, oranges, all of the above!
  5. NOTE: I actually use a tiny crock pot for this, letting it cook on the -warm- setting for about 5 hours, stirring occasionally.
