Barley as cooked cereal has become one of our favorite breakfasts. We love its nutty and chewy consistency. It is a powerhouse of nutrients, full of with fiber and protein and it is very filling. No wonder the mighty warriors of Roman Empire (Gladiators) were also called Barley men.
Cook whole barley in a rice cooker ( takes about 25 to 30 mins to cook depending on the cooker). Barley can also be cooked over the stove top. Use 2 and a half cups of water for 1 cup of barley. It usually takes about 15-20 mins for it to cook.
Once Barley is cooked add all other ingredients and enjoy.
If you would like to make it sweeter add a spoon of maple syrup or more raisins or more bananas.
