Paleo Rhubarb Pie and Porridge


15. June 2015 by swissfitchick

Ok, I have no single clue what came over me, but I have TWO recipes for you today. Aha. Who the fack am I?!

No joke, sometimes my blonde brain is so freakin’ messed up I can not remember a single thing except maybe my name, if I’m lucky. Like why and when on EARTH I downloaded this song AND put it on my ipod. Imagine my irritated look when it came up while I was cycling to the pool. I mean, I love Eminem, but yeah. Well, we all have our flaws, right?

Anyway, I digress – I DID remember to write down the recipes though and some text edits while I was creating the mess of the millenium once more in my kitchen – to the beats of Beastie Boys, with a lot of sunshine floating in and while sending pics of phallic veggies to my blog-idols in far away USA land.

Text Recipe Kitchen KitchenOk, so now on to those recipes. I have to admit, I love rhubarb time more than pumpkin time. Simply cause of the fact that A) they are easier to transport (‘easy’ as shown in the following pic) B) they are to be found everywhere and not only in selected supermarkets and C) they don’t need a full upper body workout to be ready for baking.


Bike Rhubarb PieThe rhubarb pie is a childhood memory of mine. Mom’s pies are so delicious, yet so easy to make and I always ‘helped’ her preparing them – especially by stuffing my face with raw dough. Speaking of dough – another thing I forgot – to buy premade pie pastry when I went grocery shopping on Sat. Lazy as I am there was no way I would cycle to the store again, so I made my own. It worked. Tap shoulder, Babes.


Paleo Rhubarb Pie



3 eggs

3 heaped tbsp grated flaxseed

1 heaped tbsp tigernutflour (may be subbed by almond flour)

1 heaped tbsp almond flour

2 rhubarb


1 egg

2dl unsweetened almond milk

2 tbsp grated almonds

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp honey


Preheat oven to 170°C.

Line out a sheet with baking paper.


Mix well, spread on the baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes, take out.

Cut rhubarb in small pieces and spread on the crust.


Mix all ingredients of the frosting, pour it over the rhubarb and bake for another 20 minutes.

PieHonestly guys, this is perfect to bring to the summer BBQ’s if you gotta bring the sweet thing. It’s not overly sweet, it’s seasonal, refreshing and it doesn’t contain any crab (I chose this wording instead of calling out all the -free’s – roll with it, k?). And it’s delicious, I promise!!

My second recipe is the meal prep champ – you know I love my eggy oats and basically, you can prepare them for the week. With this rhubarb porridge, you have the summer breakfast with all the nutrients you need to start the day.


Rhubarb Porridge


2 eggs, 2 eggwhites

2 rhubarb

1 dl unsweetened almond milk

20g oats

20g oatbran

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp ground vanilla


Cut the rhubarb in small pieces and cook them with a little water on low heat until almost soft.

Mix eggs, eggwhites, milk.

Mix oats, oatbran, cinnamon and vanilla.

Put wet and dry ingredients together, stir well.

Add the mixture to the cooking rhubarb and let cook on low heat for another 7 minutes.

Fill your bowl with the porridge and decorate with your favorite toppings: nutbutter, berries, syrup, nuts, dry fruit etc.

PorridgeI totally had this twice this weekend – on Saturday morning after my early morning trailrun and on Sunday after a little strength training at my friends’ gym. It has all I need –  a good load of carbs postworkout, protein, the delicious taste of the rhubarb, I can take it on the go and it keeps me satisfied for a few hours.

It’s marvelous and you should try it!

Happy Monday!

Do you like Rhubarb?

What’s your favorite way to eat it?

Do you surprise yourself with ass songs on your iPod you don’t know?

  1. Ooh I have been looking for a good rhubarb recipe but everything I have found contains masses of sugar! Will be trying out this pie for sure! 🙂

  2. Not gonna lie- I’m not the biggest fan of rhubarb. I remember it being 0 points on Weight Watchers (back in the day) and I so wanted to like it but it just wasn’t my thing…although maybe I wasn’t prepping it correctly. Both these recipes sound fabulous, Luce…so much that I think I will be adding rhubarb to my next grocery cart!!

    how did you know i had one in my fridge yet had no clue what to do with it? come make this for me, please? and bring chocolate. I’ve got the bubbly! haha

  4. YES to ass songs, unfortunately. Actually, right now I feel like my whole iPod library is ass songs since I’m basically skipping over them all. Time to look for something new, I think. And… you know what? I don’t think I’e ever had rhubarb before. And I have no idea why other than I never really knew what to do with it. Maybe it’s time to change that this year.

    • I am totally skipping all the time. It’s a joke, I NEED new music. Wanna share a playlist with me?
      I recommend to try rhubarb – it’s such a great ingredient for all kinds of stuff you love – smoothies, bars, cake, jam… get the idea 🙂

  5. Rhurbarb is like a foreign thing to me! Never have I had it before, and I have never really known wtf to do with it, other than play sword fight with it… UNTIL NOW!

  6. I’m hearing lots of Kayne in my head. Like the Momma song, the Champion song, Through the Wire, old school Kayne.. It’s the best.

    Also, holla for not one, but two recipes and of course dat ass. Damn girl. I think I need to CrossFit more. There’s a place less than a mile from my house. I looked it up for when you come visit me in Cleveland and we can talk about penises, er I mean phallic veggies.

    • Ooooh, hell YES to all the beats!! I need you to rap some shit off next time I am in the kitchen.

      And yes, the ass comes from CrossFit. You remember the craziness we did in Boulder – that. But with weight 🙂
      OMG I am getting excited. CrossFit together with you in Cleveland? That’s awesome. (especially only a mile, which means only 3 miles running for us, hahahaha)

  7. I can’t get in to rhubarb… I try. Really. I’d try your pie. Who am I kidding… I’ll eat anything in pie-form. 😉

    Your kitchen is gorgeous. I like rhubarb, but I have only ever had it paired with strawberries.

  9. This sounds amazing! Rhubarb is so good this time of year!

Who thought I would ever write again. Link in Bio. ‚'In essence, love is the consistent embodiment of care, compassion, kindness, and joy toward yourself, your partner, and each other as two interconnected and supported beings. If you encounter those feelings, you can't work around your own vulnerability.

But: there is one emotion that is stronger than fear, and that is forgiveness. For power is never simply a possession but an exercise; power is about how we understand ourselves. If we can forgive, we can let go. If we can let go, we can detach. If we can detach, we find happiness.' #blogger #heartstories #detachment #happiness
