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!


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.
