Servings 5 Servings

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 Tbs gelatin
  • 2 c water divided
  • 2 tbs -1/2 c raw honey or similar liquid sweetener optional
  • 1 15 oz can pumpkin puree not pumpkin pie filling
  • 1 13.5 oz can coconut milk
  • 1/3 c +1/4 c coconut flour
  • sea salt season to taste
  • Seasonings/additions: ghee fresh or dried, fresh or dried, parsley, chives etc, chives, parsley, Italian seasoning, etc., turmeric, black pepper, white pepper, dried onion, garlic , minced ginger , nutritional yeast, fresh herbs , dried herbs , collagen, cinnamon cloves, stevia or other granulated sweetener, minced bacon or proscuito

Instructions

  1. Pour 1 c water in a saucepan and whisk in the gelatin. Allow to bloom for about 5 minutes, then gently heat the gelatin water mixture until all gelatin has dissolved. It is important to make sure the gelatin doesn't boil. I would recommend using a whisk to stir the gelatin while heating, and remove from heat when it starts to froth from whisking.

  2. Stir in 2 Tbs of the honey. If you want the grits to be sweeter, then add up to 1/2 cup. Gently heat to dissolve if needed and immediately remove from the heat.

  3. Whisk in the pumpkin puree, coconut milk, 1 c water, coconut flour, sea salt and any other spices or seasonings you desire (see the next step).

Season with minced bacon, minced prosciutto, herbs, turmeric, onion, and garlic to make a savory dish. Use nutritional yeast to make a cheesy version. Add ghee for a buttery twist if you can tolerate it or if it is part of the reintroduction phase on AIP. Add more honey and season with cinnamon and cloves for a sweeter breakfast version. Collagen is always a great addition for a gut healing nutrient boost. For a sweet and salty variation make the grits sweet with honey and stir in minced bacon or minced proscuito or ham, and nutritional yeast (optional).

  1. Let sit for 10 minutes to thicken before serving.
  2. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Take note that the porridge will gel and become a little gelatin like. Just give them a stir or heat up in the microwave or stove top to remedy this. I even like to stir in more water to make it more runny.

Recipe Notes

Some seasonings/additions are not AIP compliant like ghee and stevia.
