Millet Breakfast

Just a brief reminder how amazing millet is and how my lovefest with this little birdseed grain continues to blossom.
It contains protein, calcium, iron, magnesium, vitamin B6 and other nutrients that are way better than plain old cheerios and milk.

There are 1,001 ways to prepare millet but here's a simple breakfast recipe I tried on my baby this morning.

1/4 cup millet
2/3 cup water
Almond Milk
Touch of Agave
Steamed Apple

1. Peel and cut the apple into small chunks, steam.
2. Cook the millet, stirring occasionally so it gets more of a mushy consistency. I kept adding water and let it cook longer because I know my baby likes it soft.
3. When its cooked, add the almond milk, agave and cinnamon to your liking.
4. Add steamed apples and cook for a few more minutes.

You can always add more water to cook, more milk, more whatever.
You know your baby best!

Makes 3-4 Servings. 
I don't know how well it freezes, but I froze a few portions to test.
