Low Gi Recipe Logo



  • 1 cup rolled rye flakes
  • cup cold water
  • 7 tbsp 100% apple juice
  • 1 egg white
  • ½ apple cored and coarsely shredded (eat the rest of the apple while the cereal is cooking)
  • 2 tbsp hazelnuts toasted, skinned and coarsely chopped
  • 2 tbsp low fat plain skyr (or Cheater’s Skyr) or low-fat Greek Yoghurt


  • Bring the rye flakes, water, and apple juice to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
  • Cook over medium-low heat, stirring often, for 5-7 minutes, or until the rye flakes are tender.
  • Turn off the heat, stir in the egg white, and set aside for one minute.
  • Serve topped with the grated apple, hazelnuts, and skyr.


  • To toast and skin hazelnuts, preheat the oven to 180°C/ 350°F. Spread the nuts on a baking sheet and bake, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes, until the skins split. Transfer the nuts to a kitchen towel and let cool for 10 minutes. Use the towel to rub the skins off the nuts. Don’t worry if some skin remains. Let cool before chopping.
