After stirring the casserole half way through the cooking time, sprinkle the top with 2/3 cup chopped walnuts. The nuts will toast as the casserole finishes cooking, and adds a teriffic crunch. Walnuts are a great source of Omega 3 fatty acids, while millet provides calcium, B vitamins and fiber. Millet is also a prebiotic. It feeds the good bacteria in the digestive system. Very healthy and delicious!

I really wanted to like millet, but I can't. The texture is just awful. This recipe may be ok substituted with another grain.

So tasty, easy to make, and easy to adapt! My sons are allergic to soy and cow's milk, as well as coconut, so I had to tweak this--but it was super easy. I just used some goat's milk as a portion of the hot water amount (I think I had about 1/2 to 3/4 cups left in the carton that I used). Then instead of coconut I put in the same amount of dried blueberries. They rehydrated nicely while baking and gave a lovely fruity flavor to the cereal! The nice thing is that the dates (and the blueberries) give this all the sweetness it needs, so there's no need to add all sorts of sugar. I'll be making this again, and I'll probably experiment with other kinds of dried fruits as well.

I have a similar recipe that I make -- only I use rum extract instead of vanilla and add a touch of nutmeg. If you have leftovers, you can add more milk/soymilk and reheat on the stove, mashing with a potato masher to loosen clumps. To really make it easy and rich, you can use eggnog (reg. or soy) when you make it or reheat it! Very good.

Millet is such a healthy grain that I enjoyed finding a recipe in which to use it. I loved this recipe. I used about 3/4 c raisins instead of dates because I had raisins on hand. Took some to my neighbor and she loved it too. I love that it has no added sugar, fats, or salt. And I enjoy the one dish preparation that took only 5 minutes. I'd eat this for breakfast, a meal or a dessert!

make sure you soak your millet overnight!

Good. I didn't have soy milk powder, so I used 1 c vanilla soy milk and 2 c soy water. (I halved the recipe.) I liked that it didn't have any added sugar, other than the fact that my dates were sugar-coated and I used sweetened coconut. It was sweet enought to eat as it without adding sugar or syrup.

This recipe is great for the health-conscious. It is easy and tastes great. Use dates, figs, raisins, whatever you like.
