Zucchini Bread Overnight Oats

I found my food soulmate. I have an obsession with zucchini bread. It had me at hello the very first time I tasted it with a warm gooey chocolate chip right in the middle of the bite. Mmmm.  

When I was perusing recipes for a client, I stumbled across the words zucchini bread and the scrolling came to an immediate stop. I had found my food soulmate – zucchini bread combined with overnight oats. It was love at first sight – or taste. Whichever. I’m obsessed!

Personally, I love to zap it in the microwave for 30 seconds to take the chill off but you could just grab and go too!
