I have used many groats and flakes to prepare a healthy, rich breakfast. I have used traditional rolled oats, millet flakes, buckwheat flakes, unburned buckwheat groats, cuscus and quinoa.
Today I recommend using barley groats. Although I associate them with dinner and for example with beef stew and gherkins, it turns out that they taste great sweet with sour fruit preserve. I have eaten them already with cherries and blackcurrants. Both of them are excellent. I added also my favourite almond flakes, cashew nuts and slightly salty pistachios. Try for a change barley groats for breakfast. Maybe you will like it?
The inspiration for this breakfast comes from www.naszakasza.pl.
