9 Grain Porridge – 9 Korn Brei

My mom was totally into healthy food, which didn’t make us kids always happy. An exemption was this delicious breakfast porridge and even my kids would never guess, that something so good could also come with healthy benefits.

Grain Porridge

There isn’t really “the recipe” for this grain porridge and it doesn’t matter whether you use 9 or 7 or 3 grains.

I will tell you, how I like my Grain Porridge and you can alter it the way you like it:

  • I use yogurt or quark, add a mashed banana, some honey and rasp some apple.
  • Also I like to add almond butter and some walnuts.
  • The finished porridge can be eaten cold or warm. I prefer mine warm.



You need to plan ahead for this breakfast because the grains must soak in water over night.


The Grains:

I use “nine grain cracked cereal” and I order it in a big tin at amazon for about $10 – lasts for a long time and I can even use it for baking bread.
