Millet Skillet “Corn Bread”

gluten free corn bread, millet bread, healthy corn bread, homemade whole grain bread

There’s nothing quite like sitting down on a crisp day with a bowl full of freshly made soup or homemade chili. A few weekends ago we all gathered at my brothers house where he served a fresh chicken-vegetables soup with homemade stock. I, of course, could not resist bringing along my “millet skillet” to go with the soup.

Millet, like many whole grains, is often forgotten in our Western culture. However, there are so many delicious grains besides wheat that can be enjoyed. For those who have gluten and/or corn allergies, corn bread may be a friend of the past. I decided to create this corn-bread-alternative that can still be enjoyed with your favorite soup or as a snack. Millet, to me, has a similar texture and taste to corn bread so it was the perfect substitute.

This recipe is simple to make and great for special occasions. You can purchase millet flour at the health food store or buy whole millet and grind it yourself in a blender.
