Brown Rice and Cherry Breakfast Bake

breakfast for one work week
Author: Juli


  • 1 cup brown rice dry
  • 2 cups milk of choice - I made this with almond milk cashew milk and macadamia nut milk
  • 2 cups of cherries
  • 1 cup greek yoghurt
  • 1 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup maple syrup depending on how sweet you like your breakfast
  • 2 T cinnamon
  • a pinch of salt
  • 4 medium eggs


  • In a medium cooking pot, combine the rice and milk and bring to boil, decrease the temperature to low and let simmer until the rice is fully cooked. Stir occasionally. The rice will be pretty pappy in the end.
  • In the meantime combine the greek yoghurt, apple sauce, maple syrup, cinnamon, salt and eggs in a large mixing bowl and whisk together until everything is well combined
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking pan or casserole dish with baking parchment - I use a 10 x 8 inch brownie pan
  • Once the rice is cooked, add the rice pap to the mixing bowl and stir again until everything is well combined
  • Pour the mixture to the pan and garnish with the cherries
  • Bake in the oven for 30 - 40 minutes depending on your oven. The bake is done when everything has firmed up completely. When you carefully poke the bake it should be still soft yet not wobbly anymore
  • Cut in pieces and serve warm or cold


You can store the bake in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days
I don't like my food overly sweet so my favorite version is the one with 1/4 cup maple syrup whereas Stefan has a much bigger sweet tooth and prefers the version with 1/2 cup maple syrup
