This is a simple yet hearty and nourishing wheat berry breakfast bowl that uses fresh fruit, yogurt, maple syrup, and cinnamon.



Wheat Berries (Makes 4 servings)

  • 1 cup (180 g) uncooked hard red winter wheat berries
  • 3 cups (709 ml) of water

Wheat Berry Breakfast Bowl (Makes 1 Serving)

  • 1/4 cup (45 g) uncooked hard red winter wheat berries (about 3/4 cup cooked)
  • 1/2 cup (113 g) Silk plain soy yogurt (or your favorite plant-based yogurt), or to taste
  • 1/3 cup (55 g) fresh blueberries (or your favorite berries)
  • 1 banana, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup, or to taste
  • Sprinkle with ground cinnamon, to taste


To Cook Wheat Berries on the Stove

  1. Rinse the wheat berries in a colander and drain.
  2. Add wheat berries and water to a pot.  You will want a 3:1 ratio, for 1 cup of wheat berries add 3 cups of water.  Bring to a boil and then lower to a simmer and cover.  Cook for about 45-60 minutes, checking after 45 minutes.  If they’re not done, continue cooking, checking every 5-10 minutes.  When the wheat berries are done, the kernels are plump and some have begun to split.  They should be chewy, not mushy or tough.  Taste to see if they’re done.
  3. When the wheat berries are done, drain and cool.

To Prepare Breakfast Bowl

  1. Mix the maple syrup and yogurt together.
  2. Then add the cooked wheat berries, banana, blueberries, and cinnamon.
  3. Alternatively, add all of the ingredients for the breakfast bowl to a bowl and give it a good stir to combine the maple syrup and yogurt.
