  • 3-1/4 cups Water
  • 1 large Apple peeled and finely chopped or shredded, I used Honeycrisp
  • 1 cup Brown Rice Farina
  • 1/2 tsp ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup Walnuts chopped
  • 2-1/2 tsp pure Maple Syrup * or to taste
  •   Almond Milk Coconut Milk, or regular Milk for serving


  1. Add the water and chopped apple to a pot and bring to a full boil. Boil gently for 5 to 8 minutes to soften the apple.
  2. Slowly stir in the brown rice farina, cinnamon, and walnuts, and stir consistently as the farina thickens. Continue cooking for 5 to 8 minutes, then add the maple syrup and stir to combine.
  3. Serve with almond milk, coconut milk, regular milk, and/or a dollop of yogurt on top.
Recipe Notes

*You can also sweeten the brown rice farina with brown sugar if you don’t have pure maple syrup available.
