    Thanks for this recipe! It will be on the menu this week. I have been wondering about goats milk and goat cheese along with vegan cheeses to get away from dairy as much as possible. If they have cottage and cheddar cheese, they must have yogurt. Also thinking of trying hemp hearts instead of oatmeal?

    We hope you enjoy the recipe! Goat’s milk/cheese contains a great does of healthy fats and is usually easier for individuals to digest that cow’s milk/cheeses. We have a great alternative to oatmeal. See the link below for one of our favorite porridge recipes. You can add hemp hearts or chia seeds to this as well.
