A heart warming farro breakfast bowl recipe with Cinnamon, apples, and cranberries. A perfect breakfast recipe for fall.

Warm Farro Breakfast Bowl with Cinnamon Apples

This Warm Farro Breakfast Bowl with Cinnamon Apple recipe is made with sautéing apples with cinnamon, dried cranberries, and cooked farro until warmed through. I topped my bowls off with homemade quinoa crunch flavored with maple syrup and pecans. Even though I served it warm, it could also be served cold with a little bit of almond milk. Either way, this is a great autumn breakfast bowl recipe that is not only delicious, but also healthy.

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 large apple cored and cut into small cubes
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • ¼ cup of dried cranberries
  • 1 cup cooked farro I used semi-pearled farro
  • 1 cup quinoa crunch – see note for the recipe
  • ¼ cup honey or maple syrup
  • handful of pecans as garnish
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk optional


  • Heat coconut oil in a small sauce-pan or cast-iron skillet. Add in the apple cubes, cinnamon, and lemon juice. Cook, stirring frequently, until they turn golden brown.
  • Stir in the cranberries and farro. Give it a stir to make sure that the apples are distributed evenly amongst other ingredients. Cook 4-5 minutes or until warmed all the way through.
  • Divide it amongst 4 bowls. Sprinkle each bowl with quinoa crunch and drizzle them with honey. Garnish with pecans.
  • Serve them as they are, or if preferred, with almond milk on the side.
  • To store: As long as it is kept in an airtight container, it will keep fresh up to 3 days in the fridge. When ready to eat, you can warm it up in the microwave or on stove top in a small sauce-pan.

Quinoa crunch adds a really nice crunch to this bowl. For this recipe, I swapped the slice almonds with same amount chopped pecans.
