This Seedy Farro Breakfast Bowl Recipe With Warmed Figs & Pears can be meal prepped ahead of time for a quick and delicious weekday breakfast or snack!


  • 1 cup farro
  • 1 cup milk of your choice (whole milk, hazelnut, almond, etc)
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1 package Blue Ribbon Orchard Choice California Figs (you can slice them in half if you buy the regular size figs or enjoy whole if you purchase the figlets)
  • 1 small pear cored and sliced thin
  • 1/2 Tbsp cinnamon
  • dash of salt
  • 4 Tbsp fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup roasted pumpkin seeds
  • seeds from 1 small pomegranate
  • 4 tsp maple syrup (+ more to taste depending on how sweet you want it)
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds


  1. Rinse the farro and place in a saucepan with 3 cups water. Bring to a oil and reduce heat to medium-low. Let simmer for 30 minutes. Drain excess wate and set aside (you can also transfer to an airtight container and place in the fridge at this point if you are making farro ahead of time).

  2. In a small saucepan, heat butter over medium heat and add in figs, pear slices, cinnamon, and a dash of salt. Saute just until the pears are soft and fragrant and the figs are warmed through. Remove from heat and add stir in orange juice. Use right away or store in an airtight container in the fridge (and just rewarm right before serving).

  3. When ready to serve, warm farro in a medium saucepan with milk (if only making one serving at a time, warm 1/4 of the farro with 1/4 cup of milk). Place farro in 4 bowls (if making a full batch). Serve with warmed figs and pears, seeds, and maple syrup.
