I made this with Einkorn wheatberries and unsweetened almond milk. I find the Einkorn wheatberries to have a natural sweetness, and even unsweetened almond milk to be a little sweet. That being said - adding the maple syrup actually made my version TOO sweet, although still delicious. Next time I will omit it altogether. In addition, I think using a whole vanilla bean as opposed to vanilla extract next time will kick this up a notch.

I used brown rice instead of wheatberries as I did not have any. Turned out great but I think I needed to simmer for a little longer as it was a tad thin. Will definetely make again!
This has become a family favorite in my house. My husband begs me to make it! I didn't believe my friend when she said it would be a healthy replacement to rice pudding - but it absolutely is!! Yummy!
This is so great! It tastes like grapenut pudding, but without all the eggs. I made it with soymilk and it came out great. I also used 1/2 maple syrup and 1/2 honey for the sweetener. I've made it twice now and everyone loves it! I cook the wheat berries for 30 minutes in the pressure cooker with no pre-soak, and they come out perfect.
