Recipe of the Week: Banana Nut Breakfast Farro

Adapted from BudgetBytes

We love farro at lunch and dinner, but did you know it also makes a delicious hot breakfast cereal? This recipe, inspired by an idea from one of our patients, is a tasty way to get out of an oatmeal rut. Feel free to get creative with the spices, swap ½ cup berries for the banana, or try almonds in place of the walnuts. Enjoy!

Makes 2 servings


½ cup dry farro

½ cup unsweetened almond milk (vanilla or plain)

½ tsp cinnamon

½  chopped banana

1 tbsp chopped walnuts

  1. Cook farro according to package instructions.
  2. Add milk and cinnamon to farro, and stir to combine.
  3. Divide between bowls, add ¼ chopped banana and 1/2 tbsp chopped walnuts to each bowl.
  4. Add more milk if needed to reach desired consistency.
