Say hello to Oatmeal’s better looking sister! Fonio will quickly become one of your favorite grains as its flavor is delectable and its nutrient benefits are impressive.

Gluten Free Low Glycemic Breakfast Fonio


See below for a great oatmeal alternative breakfast recipe! Fonio is a rare, ancient grain, originating from small pockets throughout Africa. In short, it is a gluten-free grain with a low glycemic index (making it diabetic friendly), containing many amino acids. It is also a plant based source of Magnesium, Zinc, Thiamine (Vitamin B1), Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Calcium, and Phosphorous!


  • 1 cup Atacora Raw Fonio
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 Tablespoon Atacora African Honey/agave or other sweetener of choice


  • Berries & nuts however the possibilities are ENDLESS!


In a sauce pan, boil water. Once water starts to boil, turn heat down to low. While stirring, slowly add Fonio to avoid clumping. Once it is nice and creamy, transfer to a bowl. Drizzle with honey/agave and top with your favorite fruit and/or nuts!
