Cracked Millet Apple Crisp

5 from 2 reviews


  • 3 large baking apples (such as granny smith)
  • 1 cup millet
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons butter
  • cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350º
  2. Add your millet to a blender and pulse until millet is somewhat coarser than cornmeal, but you no longer see any whole pieces.
  3. Melt butter in a medium sized bowl and stir in cracked millet and brown sugar.
  4. Combine until crumbly and set aside.
  5. Peel and chop apples to desired size. I like them in 1/2 inch chunks, but if I’m in a hurry I sometimes just slice them in half inch thick slices.
  6. Add to 8×8 pan, or 4 individual ramekins and sprinkle liberally with cinnamon.
  7. Top with millet topping.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes until apples are soft and topping is beginning to brown.
  9. Let cool for ten minutes before serving.
  10. Serve with ice cream and enjoy!
