What an incredible hot bowl of cereal and healthy too. With the bananas, apples, raisins, sour cherries and spices transforms this grain into an incredible flavorful breakfast meal. The grain, millet (which I am in love with) is chewy in texture with a light nutty flavor & sweetness to it. I like it even better than quinoa. I look forward to trying other recipes with this grain.

Try it out sometime and see what you think.
