Looking to change up your breakfast options for more than just oatmeal?
This is another deliciously healthy breakfast made with fabulous millet and pumpkin. It can be made in about 15 minutes on the stove and is easily reheated the next day.
Warm, easy, tasty and filling!
Enjoy with some cream or milk over the top!
The healthy benefits are wonderful and I’ve shared them here in my recipe for Toasted Millet Salad. The best part about it is that, just like quinoa, all you have to do is boil it! No draining is necessary. I love that, don’t you?
Not crazy about pumpkin? Substitute some applesauce or mash in some bananas instead Any other pureed or mashed fruit you like will work.
If using fruit you could eliminate the stevia as the fruit will be sweet enough. 🙂
