Cinnamon Apple Millet Oatmeal
In this Cinnamon Apple Millet Oatmeal, the “oat” here is for oat milk and traditional oats are replaced with nutritious millet. A gluten-free grain that often gets forgotten, millet is as versatile as quinoa when it comes to cooking. In this recipe, millet is cooked with oat milk to give it a creamy texture and nutty flavor. The nutty flavor is then balanced with natural sweetness from apples and goji berries with a touch of raw honey added. Cinnamon adds spice and citrusy lemon zest gives balance to the dish which is delicious for breakfast or as a snack.
This oatmeal-style millet dish is the ideal breakfast before an early morning hike, swim or bike ride. It’s slow-releasing carbohydrates will give you plenty of energy for sustained endurance and the cinnamon acts as a natural anti-inflammatory. Millet is a good source of protein, fiber, B vitamins and iron and this recipe overall is an excellent source of vitamin C.
