Banana Nut Breakfast Farro

Banana Nut Breakfast Farro

The good thing about grains is that you have unlimited options from oatmeal, quinoa, farro, bucwkeat, you name! Last week I decided it was time to innovate and try something different. I had try farro before but never for breakfast or in a sweet dish so I decided to give it a try.

Farro is low in gluten and higher in protein than most grains. It has a nutty flavor and a little thicker consistency than oatmeal.

You can also make this recipe with oatmeal but I suggest you try it with farro as well it wont disappoint you.

Yields: 2 bowls

Ingredients:

1 cup Farro

1 tbsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. vanilla extract

Almond Milk

1 Ripe banana

1 handful of walnuts

honey to taste

 

Directions:

  1. Bring water and a pinch of salt to a boil. Whisk in grains. Return to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Simmer, stirring often, for 20 to 20 minutes.
  2. Add the cinnamon and continue to simmer for another 10 minutes approximately.
  3. Top with milk, banana, walnuts, and honey.
