What you need to make Animal-Based Oatless ‘Oatmeal’

Ingredients:

Equipment:

Substitutions

Pasteurized milk will work in place of raw milk.

I have tried this recipe without the zucchini and it works and tastes great. If you don’t have zucchini or don’t want to use zucchini, using just one banana for the ‘oats’ will work fine, but the result will be a bit more sticky and thick. I recommend using the zucchini if you like more of a watery oatmeal. Stick with the banana only (no zucchini) if you like your oatmeal a bit thicker…your lips just may get a bit sticky from the gelatin.


How to make Animal-Based Oatless ‘Oatmeal’

Prepare the ‘oats.’

Skin your zucchini. Take your vegetable grater, and using the finest setting, shred the skinned zucchini down to the seeds (but don’t shred the actual seeds). Place the shredded zucchini in a small bowl.

Add your ripe banana to the bowl with the shredded zucchini and mash until a paste forms. Small chunks of banana are okay (I prefer it this way, actually).

I recommend using the zucchini if you like more of a watery oatmeal. Stick with the banana only (no zucchini) if you like your oatmeal a bit thicker…your lips just may get a bit sticky from the gelatin.

Make the ‘oatmeal’ base.

In your 8″ cast iron pan (or cooking pan), heat the raw milk (ASHLEY20 for 20% off) and ghee over low heat. Whisk continuously, about 1-2 minutes. The raw milk should not boil. A little steam is okay.

Add in the cinnamon and sea salt (ASHLEYR for 15% off) and mix until incorporated.

Add in 1 tbsp of the beef gelatin VERY SLOWLY (think how slow you would sprinkle salt over a dish…and do it slower), stirring continuously. This should take about a minute or so.

Once the gelatin is poured in, stir the mixture for 1-2 more minutes allowing it to thicken.

Add in the ‘oats.’

Add the banana-zucchini mixture and the vanilla extract to the ‘oatmeal’ base and stir to incorporate (about 1-2 minutes).

Then add 1 more tbsp of beef gelatin, mixing VERY SLOWLY and continuously stirring as you did before (about 1-2 minutes)

Remove the finished ‘oatmeal’ from heat, pour into a bowl, and serve immediately. Add toppings of choice, like honey, maple syrup, berries, shredded coconut, raisins, or other fruit. This dish is best served fresh. Enjoy!

      Sure! The farmer who we purchase our raw milk from told us that as long as raw milk doesn’t boil, it should retain all of its nutrients.
