Baked millet with juicy fruit filling is a perfect healthy breakfast or even dessert.
We love baked millet with fruits, because it tastes heavenly and is very healthy at the same time. The main ingredient is of course millet, cooked in plantbased milk. And it is filled with cooked fruits for some amazing flavours and vitamins. You can use any kind of fruit that you like, it’s completely your choice! We usually use the fruits that we have at home at the time and we are always impressed with the amazing taste! The fruits that we tried using and can confirm that taste amazing as a filling are: strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, cherries, apricots and apple with cinnamon. Here you can see some of our versions to use as an idea and at the bottom of the page you can also find the recipe.
Fresh or frozen strawberries are a great filling, because they get an amazing flavour when cooked. We topped millet with some strawberry yoghurt, chocolate, strawberries and chopped nuts to make it even better.
Blueberries are also a great filling, they are very delicious and create the most amazing purple colour. We also added some blueberry soy yoghurt, chocolate, blueberries and blackberries on top.
3. Apple & cinnamon
A combination of apples, cinnamon and lemon juice is one of the best, especially in fall and winter days. And another bonus of this delicious filling is the nice aroma, that fills the whole house.
Another incredible filling are cherries! We just love the taste and beautiful vibrant colour.
Baked vegan millet
- 250 g millet
- 1 l plantbased milk
- a pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 30 g coconut sugar
- 30 ml agave
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds
- 1 teaspoon flax seeds
- 300 g fruit of your choice
- Put chia and flax seeds in a little bit of water and let it soak for at least 15 minutes.
- Put millet, plant-based milk, salt, vanilla extract, agave nectar and coconut sugar in a pot and bring to a boil. Then cook it on medium heat for 30 minutes.
- Add presoaked chia and flax seeds and mix it all together. (If you want, you can also make it without chia and flaxseeds and it will still stick together.)
- In a separate bowl mix fruits and a bit of coconut sugar and bring to a boil. Cook for a few minutes, until it becomes completely soft. (If you are using apples, just grate them and mix with cinnamon and lemon juice.)
- Put one half of millet mixture in a pan, cover with fruits and then cover with the rest of millet.
