Farro Protein Breakfast Bowls

When it comes to trying healthy, protein-packed ideas for breakfast, it can sometimes feel impossible to find a recipe that fits your needs, doesn’t break the bank, and comes together quickly. And, as much as we love a good bowl of overnight oats, it’s nice to try something new once in a while.

That’s where our farro protein breakfast bowls come in.

With the unique inclusion of pearled farro (a naturally protein-rich grain), yogurt, and roughly chopped veggies, this recipe is unlike most breakfasts you’ve eaten–and just as delicious. As an added bonus, this dish comes together in just twenty minutes and requires minimal effort. Once you’ve gotten your farro simmering, you’re free to walk away and continue getting ready for the day. Then, once you’ve drained your cooked farro, simply toss it together with the rest of your ingredients, top with pre-boiled eggs or any other topping of your choice, and start eating.

Between the powerhouse health profile of farro, nutritious veggies, impressive amounts of protein, and gut-friendly yogurt, this farro breakfast bowl gives you everything you need to start your day off right. And, with simple, low-cost ingredients, this recipe will quickly become a staple of your weekly meal prep breakfasts.
