This is my favorite breakfast grain by far. Breakfast barley is easy, hearty, filling, full of fiber & flavor, and not to mention stick to your ribs delicious! Feel free to get creative with the add in's if you're not feeling the apricots, pecans, & cranberries. :) Enjoy!
Makes 4ish servings.
1 1/2 cup apple juice (or cider)
