Hazelnut millet porridge with dates

millet porridge


Millet has been trending in Polish blogosphere for a while. Apparently it’s one of the healthiest grains (although technically it’s a seed). But I struggle with changing my habits. For an everyday breakfast I usually have muesli with milk or yogurt. But when I get myself organized I often have porridge. So millet porridge was on my list for a year or so and one day finally while waiting for a torrential rain I got myself into making a big bowl of it.

I must say that millet porridge with hazelnut milk and dates is just brilliant, it actually tastes more like a dessert than breakfast so maybe perfect for days when you really want to treat yourself with something nice. I see more millet porridge in my future.
