Nut Butter & Jam Fonio Porridge

Prep Time
Cook Time

by Amethyst Ganaway

This fonio porridge bowl is jam-packed (pun intended!) with flavor thanks to sour cherry and ginger jam. A swirl of your favorite nut butter adds some satiating fat and flavor, and if you like, a bit of crunch. We recommend topping with cherries, coconut flakes, dark chocolate, and granola to round out this nourishing bowl.


For Porridge:
  • 1   tablespoon neutral flavored oil or butter
  • ½   cup uncooked Yolélé fonio
  • 1 ½   cups oat, almond or other milk of your choice
  • tablespoons jam (we like Trade Street Jam Sour Cherry Ginger Jam)
  • tablespoons nut butter (we like GroundUp Chunky Almond, Cashew + Coconut Nut Butter)
  • 1/4   cup frozen or fresh dark cherries, pits removed
  • teaspoons coconut flakes
  • ounces dark chocolate
  • tablespoons granola


  • 01 .  

    In a saucepan with a lid, toast the fonio on medium heat for about 2 minutes with oil or butter.

  • 02 .  

    Turn heat to high, add the milk of your choice, and bring to up to a boil. Stir fonio, cover, and turn the heat to low for 1-2 minutes.

  • 03 .  

    Turn off the heat and let sit covered for five minutes, until thick and fonio grain is tender. If you like a more liquid porridge, stir in an extra half cup of milk after the five-minute rest.

    Add Trade Street Sour Cherry Ginger Jam, GroundUp Chunky Almond, Cashew, + Coconut Nut Butter, and various toppings to your liking and enjoy!
