Move over baked oatmeal, baked fonio is here to stay! This baked fonio recipe is an easy one to adapt and make for meal prepping ahead of time. Make your weekly batch of fonio and set aside ¼ cup of cooked fonio per person to make a deliciously easy breakfast meal that can be pre-portioned and then baked in the morning while you get ready for work, school, or the gym. Adding in milk (dairy or plant-based) makes the precooked fonio deliciously creamy, and topping with a little coconut sugar before baking leaves a creme brulee color and texture on top. Add a few berries or sliced fruit and you have a full meal ready in a few minutes. Adding peanut butter, bananas, or other ingredients to the baking ramekin is also a great way to incorporate more flavor and nutrients into the dish as well.
