Millet Porridge

A simple, comforting, nutritious breakfast to wake up to while camping or at home. Easy enough to take on the road or whip up on a busy morning!


  • 1 cup millet
  • 2 cups nut/seed milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tsp cinnamon optional
  • 1-2 tbsp pure maple syrup optional
  • Fruit topping of your choice optional


  1. Begin to warm a dry small or medium saucepot over medium-high heat.
  2. Pulse ½ cup of the millet in a blender so it becomes a sandy-grain texture. Add the remaining half cup and pulse again, leaving a fair amount of whole millet seeds.
  3. Add the millet to the dry pot and toast the millet for 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently, until fragrant.
  4. Add the nut/seed milk and water, bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes, until the whole millet seeds are soft.
  5. Remove from heat and add cinnamon and pure maple syrup if you wish, and top with fresh fruit of your choice (or fruit puree - pictured is persimmon puree and coconut flakes). We love to stir in frozen wild blueberries to help it cool down faster! Enjoy!
