10-grain oatmeal with rye

Made a hearty breakfast oatmeal for both myself and the lil' fella. This is a ten-grain oatmeal with rye flakes. I shared about the nutritional benefits of rye a few posts back, and gonna repeat them here..
Rye is a cereal grain that looks like wheat. It is generally available in its whole  or as flour or flakes that look similar to old-fashioned oats. Because it is difficult to separate the germ and bran from the endosperm of rye, rye flour usually retains a large quantity of nutrients, in contrast to refined wheat flour. Rye has a handful of benefits that cannot be compared by those made with white flour or even wholemeal flour, here are some listed by
  • Promotes weight loss
  • Prevents gallstones
  • Substantially lowers type-2 diabetes risk
  • Promotes gastrointestinal health
  • Significant cardiovascular benefits with postmenopausal women
The list actually goes on.
This is a simple recipe yet it's very filling. It would keep you full for the whole morning due to its high fiber content.
Recipe serves two
  • 3tbsp rolled oat, organic
  • 2tbsp rye flakes, organic
  • 1sachet 10-grain powder (about 3tbsp)
  • 1glass (about 250g) warm water  
  1. Dissolves 10-grain powder in 1 glass of warm water.
  2. In a small pot on a stove, heat up the 10-grain drink, stir in rolled oat and rye flakes.
  3. Simmer for about 3-5min or until oatmeal becomes thick and creamy. 


  1. Hi... Mommy Jeniffer, may I know how to made 10-grain powder? Same method as brown rice cereal? TIA. :)

    1. Hi dear Aileng, I don't make 10-grain powder myself. The 10-grain powder are readily available from organic shops or health sections in supermarkets. It consists of 10grains including brown rice, oat, black sesame, buckwheat, millet, lentils etc etc.

  2. Hi Mommy Jennifer, thanks for your swift reply. Good day. :)

  3. Hi Jennifer, is it alright to use milk instead of warm water?
