We always need to have a few breakfast options available to make our mornings run smoothly. I mean breakfast can make or break your day so we want to make sure you are covered. Our recipes need to be easy to make, quick, healthy and of course, incredibly delicious. Today we are taking advantage of millet and its benefits to make this happen.
The delicious breakfast recipe we are about to make has so much going on. But very little effort is needed to put it together. It also tastes more like a treat than an actual breakfast but you can be sure it is still a healthy option. It's a great breakfast for when you are craving something slightly sweet.
We are making a Vanilla Breakfast Millet with Apple. You could say it is a bit like a porridge or an apple pie; maybe something in between. The millet is sweet and a bit creamy, the apple adds a bit of a crunch and the seasonings make it incredibly delicious.
If you haven't used millet before don't be afraid of it. This grain is not all that common but it is really easy to cook with. And you can easily find it at the store but since it is not something we are usually looking for, you might not even know they have it where you usually do your shopping.
Millet has a lot of good things going on. First of all this grain is gluten-free. Even though I'm not against gluten I think is important to have options for everyone. So, millet is a great addition to anyone on a gluten-free diet.
Also, millet is incredibly versatile. I've used it in both savoury and sweet recipes and it works well with both. It kinda reminds me of quinoa in the sense that its flavour will be determined mostly by what you cook it with and the seasonings you use. This opens a lot of possibilities of what you can use millet for.
Lastly, and one of the reasons I love millet so much is the incredible amount of health benefits it has. I was really surprised when I learned about all those benefits. These are just some of them:
I could keep going but I think you get the idea. Millet is just amazing. So, now that you know all that's in store when you eat millet let's get back to our recipe.
Other than millet and apples, we also have dates, turmeric powder, vanilla extract, and protein powder. To top it off and add an extra touch of flavour and another layer of nutrients, drizzle some maple syrup and throw some hemp hearts on it.
Your belly will be full of vitamins, minerals, fibre, and a good dose of protein to keep you energised and well-nourished through out the morning.
