Byggrynsgrøt | Barley Porridge

This barley porridge is a perfect way to slow down and enjoy your breakfast. We’ve been using all sorts of grains in our cooking for ages- barley is no exeption! It has a beautiful, nutty aroma with a firm bite to it. It takes a bit of time to cook, but it’s damn well worth the wait! It’s both nutritious and delicious – I love serving it warm with milk, nuts and a dollop of honey.

Byggrynsgrøt | Barley Porridge


2 dl barley groats

1 l milk

1/2 tsp salt


Milk ( I prefer full fat milk, but optional)





  1. Soak the barley groats in water over night.
  2. Rinse and add in a saucepan with milk and salt.
  3. Boil for 30 - 40 minutes, stirring now and then to avoid burning. 
  4. Serve with cold milk, nuts and honey.
