Is Gruetze a healthy breakfast

It tastes sooooo much better than it sounds: oat groats are the new breakfast for those who like to have a bite.

I'll just say that now.

Granted, porridge doesn't sound nice. But grits is just the term for coarsely (or finely) ground cereal grains. When choosing a name, you could have simply chosen something more charming. There was probably no artistically valuable and fruitful brainstorming in a creatively inspiring environment. But it is what it is.

So there is OAT GRIT here today. Prepared similarly to a porridge. Very fine oat flakes are typical of classic porridge. Here, the bits of Zwicky's oatmeal are a bit coarser and therefore remain - and that's what I think is great - firm to the bite. So this porridge is a great change from the common porridge and tastes great with the recipe below! And all of this without adding sugar or syrup or whatever sweetener you are into.

Oats are also low in gluten and fill you up for a long time - thanks to fiber and a lot of protein. So an ideal basis to start the day powerfullyas they say it in the advertising industry.

In addition to milk and fruit, I used these three main characters from the Zwicky Swiss peeling mill: flax seeds, a mix of roasted sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds and real oat groats. You can order the trio directly and conveniently online in the shop.

And from today until April 5, 2021 Every online order (no matter which product) comes with a free oatmeal.

I think the oatmeal has been forgotten a bit with all the cool Insta porridges and breakfast bowls. And maybe the name is to blame for that (Seriously: GRÜTZE? Who does that ?!)

But I think that oat groats should definitely find their way back into our kitchens. With flags, timpani, trumpets and fanfares. And balloons and confetti. For me, the grits not only got a permanent place in the kitchen, but also in my heart. To spray a little pathos here.

In short: I ABSOLUTELY recommend trying this recipe down there. It's super fine!

But first of all ... a culinary bonus track

I always waited eagerly for him. Back when it was still common to listen to CDs. My bonus track here: The new Frutifort Birchermüesli. Available in the shop as a 2.5 kg pack. That should be enough for a few days. Otherwise there is also the Frutifort 750g pack.

And because there is no need for further explanations regarding the preparation of a muesli (muesli in bowl, milk on top), I have another preparation idea here:

1 // Put muesli in a container. 2 // Spread the yogurt over it (I took a vegan coconut yogurt here). 3 // And topped with a homemade applesauce that has been lovingly cooked.

You can do it the night before and keep it in the fridge.
