Hello there breakfast loving friends and welcome to today’s barley flakes and apple porridge breakfast recipe!
This is breakfast number 3 in this week’s series of porridge/wholegrain variation breakfasts.
How did you get on with the porridge with blueberries and almonds or the spiced plum millet porridge?
I like to vary my breakfast porridges as much as possible, so that’s where this barley flakes and apple porridge comes in. It makes a nice change from oatmeal.
Barley flakes are packed with fibre, contain important vitamins and minerals, are extremely low in fat and, as with all plant products, are cholesterol free.
Packed full of protein and excellent for the digestive system, barley flakes are also a low GI food. Ideal for those concerned about their consumption of high GI cereals, to choose as an alternative, should they be advised to do so by a medical practitioner.
The apple and added sultanas are perfect to compliment and sweeten the barley flakes enough so that you shouldn’t actually need to add any sweetener.
