Creamy Millet Breakfast Porridge w/ Cashew Butter

Tired of oatmeal for breakfast? Here’s a nice warm porridgy breakfast change for you. I was surprised at how decadent and delicious this was. It will probably become a regular on my breakfast rotation. The millet has a nice texture and the mashed banana and warm cashew butter make for a perfectly sweet and creamy combo. A perfect application for a batch of chia jam! Other fruit would work beautifully too.
