I used a barn dried kind of rye, so mine are on the dark side. They can be made with more wheat than rye too – a favorite of my mother-in-law. Or you could replace the rice filling with potato mash –  a favourite with my husband. Barley porridge is also a good candidate for substitution. Or would you prefer cooked and mashed carrots mixed with into the rice filling? I sometimes buy those in the shop for an afternoon snack with my coffee. These can be bought ready-to-bake (freezer) regular size as well as cocktail size.
