Directions

  1. First, cook the wheat berries. Place in medium pot with 4 cups of water, and bring to a boil. Once boiling, lower to a simmer and cook for about 1 hour, until wheat berries are soft and slightly chewy.
  2. When ready to make the porridge, combine your cooked wheat berries with the soy milk, apple pie spice, ginger, vanilla, and Stevia. Simmer on low until milk mixture thickens, about 20-30 minutes.
  3. While the wheat berries cook, prepare the caramelized apples. In a medium Swiss Diamond nonstick saucepan, melt the coconut oil over medium heat. Add in the apple chunks, brown sugar, and apple pie spice. Cook, stirring often until apples are soft and syrup has turned thick about 15-20 minutes.
  4. When ready to serve, spoon out some of the wheatberry mixture, top with the caramelized apples, cranberries, and pumpkin seeds. Enjoy warm!
