These puffed millet cookies are a no bake treat coated in dark chocolate and filled with dried cranberries and toasted macadamia nuts.
Back in October right as I began eating a bit differently (hello, world of counting macros) and working with Renaissance Periodization, I started food shopping a bit differently too. Things I’d normally pick up got a second glance at the nutrition label and usually put back on the shelf thanks to their delicious fat content and things I’d normally just pass up got thrown in the cart.
Puffed millet would be one of those things. Don’t get me wrong, I like millet as a grain and have happily eaten it many times. But when it comes to things that can pass as cereal, this puffed airy, pretty much flavorless morsel wouldn’t be my first choice (that will always be reserved for Lucky Charms, the best cereal in all the land).
