  • Baked Good
  • 2 cups millet flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder [baking powder recipes]
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 egg (or if eggs don't work for you, mix 1 Tablespoon flax meal with 1/4 cup boiling water and let sit till thick)
  • 1 cup water or liquid of choice
  • 1 onion (optional)
  • spices (optional)
How to make it:
  1. Preheat oven to 450.
  2. For a crisp crust, heat some oil in an iron skillet in the oven while it's preheating, but watch carefully for smoke. Remove from heat immediately if it does start to smoke.
  3. Remove when hot and pour mixed ingredients into pan.
  4. Bake 20 minutes.


  5. Add chopped onion or Italian seasoning.
  6. For muffins, use a muffin tin instead of an iron skillet, pouring a little oil into each cup and bake for about 10 minutes.
  7. For hush puppies, use a little less liquid to make a stiffer batter, add onion, then drop by spoonfuls into hot oil and fry on both sides. Note: I'm not sure that hush puppies will hold together with the flax meal, probably requires egg.
