Clean, simple, organic rye cereal

Please select a reason

In the world of cereal wheat typically reigns supreme.  That why I was intrigued when a rye and oatmeal-based cereal appeared in front of me.  Milzu organic rye and oatmeal flakes are packed with fiber, vitamin E, iron and magnesium.  When compared with wheat, rye is considered more nutritious, in fact it’s considered one of the healthiest foods in the world.  Rye is rich in insoluble fiber which promotes weight loss and helps prevent gallstones.  Rye has a low glycemic index and can have less impact on blood sugar than wheat. Oatmeal on the other hand, is rich in soluble fiber, can help control blood sugar, is rich in antioxidants and is incredibly filling which can promote weight loss in its own right.  Best of all, this cereal consists of 3 clean ingredients; organic rye, oatmeal flour and sea salt.  The flakes are crunchy and simple. I enjoy them with fresh nut milk and fruit or in the yogurt parfait recipe provided. 


¾ cup fresh or frozen organic berries of your choosing

1tbs honey

½ tsp vanilla extract

¾ cup full fat yogurt1tbsp chia seeds

¼ cup Milzu rye flakes 


1.    In a small bowl, combine yogurt, chia seeds, honey and vanilla extract and stir until well combined.

2.    In a mason jar or container, add a portion of fresh or frozen berries to the bottom and break them up using a fork. If using frozen berries, you may need to let them thaw or zap them for 10 seconds in the microwave to soften them slightly.

3.    Top crushed berries with a layer of rye flakes and follow with a layer of yogurt mixture. Repeat the berries, rye flakes and yogurt mixture twice more creating a parfait and transfer to the fridge overnight or for at least 10 minutes. This will allow the chia seeds to soften and expand and provide a better texture.

4.    In the morning, remove from the fridge and enjoy!
