Better Than Oatmeal

This is a recipe that someone posted on Facebook, and I decided to give it a try.  My boys and I both love this.  It’s easy to make, looks surprising like oatmeal, and obviously tastes better than oatmeal as my boys weren’t big oatmeal fans before GAPS and they absolutely love this recipe!


Better Than Oatmeal

1 ripe banana

3 organic pastured eggs

dash of sea salt

splash of vanilla

shake of organic cinnamon

ghee/butter for frying


Mash the bananas and mix all the ingredients together.  Cook in a large frying pan with melted ghee or butter like you are cooking scrambled eggs, mashing and stirring as you go.  Place in bowls to serve; top with ghee or whatever toppings you would like (nuts, fruits, extra cinnamon, etc.)

This recipe can easily be double or tripled depending on how many servings you need.  The above recipe is one serving.

  1. I wanna try this!!! I’ve been thinking about reintroducing eggs, and I think I’ve discovered why I may have had issues before: the eggs our families eat are, free range, but fed some grain, contain oats, soy, etc. And I just read how those things are transferred directly to the egg! Anyway, I’m gonna give it a go, and then maybe I can eat this!


    1. I agree, Dellie! I was reading recently how some people who are super sensitive to certain grains cannot tolerate eggs from chickens who eat those grains or even meat from cattle, etc. who ate those grains. I’m looking into ordering from an organic farmer in Wisconsin this week and will pick up my first order on Tuesday. I will let you know how it goes 🙂

  2. I made these for myself and the smell was heavenly! I loved how it tasted, too, but by the sixth or seventh bite the texture was really bothering me. I couldn’t finish them, even though they were delicious! Is there a way to make them creamier and less scrambled?


    1. Could you puree it in the blender? That would give you a creamy and fine texture versus the scrambled texture. Also, I find that if I almost continually stir the egg mixture in the pan while it is cooking I get an entirely different texture.
