Once you have cooked the millet, this Millet Pecan Pudding is very simple to make. It is for sure tasty and so healthy without sugar so you can have it for breakfast. Also, it has no milk or eggs which makes it a great vegan dessert. What I like is that there is no sugar added. The raisins add some sweetness and then the healthy stevia does the rest making it sweet and yummy.
All the ingredients in this recipe are healthy and are tasty superfoods.
Millet Pecan Pudding Vegan Ingredients
The main ingredient is gluten-free millet which provides a host of nutrients, has a sweet nutty flavour, and is considered to be one of the most digestible and non-allergenic grains available. It is one of the few grains that is alkalizing to the body.
Adding a few raisins that are unsweetened and unsulfured adds some more sweetness to this Millet Pecan Pudding. Raisins are a healthy, tasty food when eaten in moderation. They are a good source of nutrients and add a tasty sweetness to desserts and snacks. According to Medical News Today, they have many health benefits.
Coconut oil is actually very good for us. In tropical climates like Polynesia, Sri Lanka and the Yucatan where they have a diet high in coconut oil, the people are healthier, have less heart disease, cancer, and colon problems than unsaturated fat eaters.

As I don’t use sugar for my baking I often use stevia which is the healthy option. The stevia plant is incredibly sweet and also incredibly good for you. The leaf is 30 times sweeter than sugar while extracts are 300-400 times sweeter. The best stevia will, therefore, be the one that retains some whole food value and is water-based. Liquid forms will be less processed. Go here to learn How to Get the Best Stevia Without the Bitterness.
Adding some cinnamon to this Millet Pecan Pudding gives it an extra tastiness. When we think of cinnamon we usually imagine delicious pastries or a hot drink but cinnamon is also full of health benefits. These benefits are backed by valid scientific research. It is helpful from lowering “bad” HDL cholesterol levels to lowering blood sugar levels.
