HOW TO MAKE A PERFECT BREAKFAST MEAL WITH FONIO (OATMEAL ALTERNATIVE BREAKFAST RECIPE)


Fonio (Oatmeal) Breakfast

Fonio is a rare, ancient grain that is highly nutritious originating from small pockets throughout Africa. Similar to quinoa it is a good source of protein, so if you wanted added protein to your oatmeal without protein powder, fonio grain is the way.


In short, fonio grain is a gluten-free grain with a low glycemic index (making it diabetic friendly), containing many amino acids. It is also a plant based source of Magnesium, Zinc, Thiamine (Vitamin B1), Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Calcium, and Phosphorus!


See below for a great oatmeal alternative breakfast recipe made with gluten-free fonio grain.


Ingredients:

6 cups water.

1 Tablespoon African Honey/other sweetener of choice

Toppings:

Berries and/or nuts of your choice.


Directions:

In a saucepan, boil water. Once water starts to boil, turn heat down to low. While stirring, slowly add Fonio to avoid clumping. Once it is nice and creamy, transfer to a bowl. Drizzle with honey and top with your favorite fruit and/or nuts.


Breakfast is ready! Let’s munch in!
