I hadn’t tried out this wholegrain as a porridge until recently when I googled it and there were indeed recipes to be found. I usually just use rye flakes in my home made muesli recipe but now I’ll be enjoying this strawberry and rye flakes porridge alongside all my other porridge recipes too!

  1. I am loving all of these breakfast options! I don’t think I’ve yet had rye flakes. I’m sure I would like them, I love rye bread. Freshly toasted marble rye is one of my favorite things. Next to pumpernickel. And I think that the pairing with the strawberry would be perfect for the rye’s herbyness. Oh, strawberries, you make me think of warmer times…

      Thanks Susie. Oh I love pumpernickel bread too, it’s just got such a moorish taste doesn’t it?

      Ah, warmer weather…..here’s to it! (I’ll still be eating porridge though 😉 )

  2. Looks like a yummy way to start the day!

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Hi Julie, thanks for dropping by! 🙂

      Yeah, it really is a yummy way to start the day.

      I love my oatmeal / wholegrains / porridge in the morning, first thing. I find that not only are they a great kick start but they put the energy right back into you after a workout too! 😀

  3. I haven’t had rye flakes either – what an interesting take on porridge!

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Thanks Shashi, I just love showing that there’s so many ways to get your daily nutrients from such a wide variety of whole grains. 🙂

  4. I love that you used rye flakes, Neil! Different grains add such a different taste and texture to the dish, and it’s so fun to play around with that and see what you can come up with. Sometime I even combine oats with other flakes for that reason. And strawberries… gah! What I wouldn’t give for some of those right now…

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      I just so agree Amanda! 🙂

      Porridge oats / oatmeal are great but it’s when you start experimenting and trying out different grains that you can see and taste what fun food can be!

      Strawberries, you’ve just got to love those sweet little juicy temptresses haven’t you 😆

  5. rye flakes sound divine! i so wish they had a GF version.I miss my rye bread too! haha

      Hi Lindsay, thank you for your kind comments.

      There will be a gluten free porridge recipe today 🙂 and as I’ve been overwhelmed 😀 by emails requesting more gluten free breakfast recipes, that is something I will be working on.
