Do you like millet? Or perhaps it’s better to ask you have you tried it? I don’t know if it’s a ubiquitous product in your country, but you should definitely give it a try!

In fact, that was the very first time I tried a creamy, slightly sweetened breakfast version of millet – usually I make savory. To make this Maple Millet Porridge inspired me one awesome food blogger. You’are right – I am talking about myself (Yes that awesome food blogger is a very humble person too).

One day I was making one dish where the key ingredient was a millet stuffing. That stuffing turned out to be so delicious that I hardly managed not to eat it all! I questioned myself why the hell I had never had a bowl of creamy millet porridge for my breakfast? I had wasted so much time!

That’s why the next day I was making this scrumptious porridge for my Saturday breakfast. And I am warning you I won’t stop. I will be eating it for a few weekends in a row (Right now, while writing this post I am dreaming of it). So you should unsubscribe this blog cause I am going to be a Millet Monster. Are you scared? You should be, seriously.

As any other kind of grains, millet is a versatile one. There are lots of options to jazz it up. This time I opted for some maple syrup, cinnamon, and bananas (If I had any nuts at that moment, be sure I would have added them as well. You cannot go wrong with nuts). As for liquid, you can use simple water or regular milk. Personally, I discovered that condensed milk works greatly with millet introducing a very velvety rich texture and great flavor.

  1. So I can’t say that I’ve ever had millet in porridge form, but I am totally willing to try it…and soon. I seriously love the cinnamon + maple combination, so this one is calling my name. And I really love warm breakfasts in the winter, so I’m adding this one to the shortlist!
