This warm farro & baked cinnamon apple breakfast bowl is the recipe to go to for those of us who love cereal but want to avoid all the harmful health downsides to processed box cereals. (Ewww bad carbs, man!)

Plus, it’s kinda loaded with goodness for your tastebuds, natural fuel for your body and an abundance of the nutrients your body needs to function at its best.

Ever heard the saying “Everything you eat is either feeding disease or fighting it”?

This dish resonates with that.

Each ingredient (well, I suppose except for the tiny measure of maple syrup) is helping you heal, lose weight and reduce your risk of illness.

Since the “quinoa crunch” in this recipe makes for a delicious crunchy topping fit for tons of other snacks like salads or yogurts, I split up this recipe and gave the quinoa crunch it’s own mini recipe below.
