Roasted Cranberry Maple and Brown Sugar Farro Breakfast with Chopped Pecans

When the mornings get chilly I turn to warm breakfast bowls. Warm cozy breakfast in a bowl! It makes me never want to get out of my pajamas.

A quick toss in maple syrup and brown sugar then into the oven for a quick roast makes these cranberries burst with flavor. The Farro is cooked until al dente and the nutty flavor compliments the swirl of maple syrup and brown sugar. I added a dash of cinnamon for a hint of spice. In the winter I add spice to everything. It is a force of nature. I can’t help it. It just happens.  For another dimension of texture I added a sprinkle of chopped pecans for some crunch.
