  1. Prep the Broccoli: Begin by finely chopping the broccoli, including the stems, into small pieces. Steam or microwave until tender yet still vibrant, about 3-4 minutes. Let it cool.
  2. Mix the Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooled broccoli, baking powder, 1/2 tablespoon of salt, beaten eggs, rolled oats, sesame seeds, green onions, minced garlic, 1/3 teaspoon of pepper, and mozzarella cheese. Stir in the finely chopped onion and grated zucchini for added texture and flavor. Season with the remaining salt and pepper. Mix well until all ingredients are evenly distributed.
  3. Shape the Patties: Using your hands, form the mixture into small patties. If the mixture is too sticky, you can lightly oil your hands to make shaping easier.
  4. Cook the Patties: Heat a skillet over medium heat and add a drizzle of olive oil. Once hot, place the patties in the pan and cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and crispy. Work in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan.
  5. Serve Hot: Once cooked, serve the broccoli and oat flapjacks hot. They can be enjoyed on their own or with a side of your favorite sauce or yogurt dip.

These versatile flapjacks offer a delightful twist to the usual fare, bringing together the wholesomeness of oats and the nutritious punch of broccoli, all wrapped up with the melting goodness of mozzarella cheese. Whether you’re seeking a new breakfast idea, a healthy snack, or a side dish, these flapjacks are sure to impress.
