Hafragrautur með bláberjum

Blueberry porridge

A classic Icelandic breakfast - and without animal products: That's our blueberry porridge. It's suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

Even the Icelandic sagas tell of grouts, in Icelandic "grautur". But these written record are not very detailed. They don't tell us how "grautur" was prepared. Maybe the Norsemen used Fjallagrös, Icelandic moss, instead of oat flakes. We don't know.

Ingredients for 2 persons

100 g oat flakes
300 ml water
1/2 tsp cinnamon 

1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
4 dried dates
100 g blueberries (fresh or frozen)


Cut the dates into small pieces.

Put oat flake, chopped dates, cinnamon, vanilla, salt and 2/3 of the blueberries into a pan. Pour water over it and let everything simmer at medium heat for about 5 minutes while stirring regularly.

Serve the porridge in two bowls decarated with the remaining blueberries.
