Body Balancing Bircher
May 02, 2018 at 2:14 PM
A lot of bircher recipes I come across are very high carbohydrate, low in protein and low in fat so I wanted to make something that still tastes like a yummy bircher, but is a little bit more balanced. This recipe contains slow-burning carbohydrates, a good amount of healthy fats providing you with essential fatty acids, and protein to provide you with all the nutrients your body needs to get through the morning.
*Feel free to modify the portions based on your calorie and nutrient requirements using the macro break down I have provided in the ingredients list.
2 cups oats
2 cups frozen blueberries OR 1 large apple grated
4 Scoops Whey Protein
4 tbs chia seeds (highly recommend choosing this as your fat portion - helps to add bulk to the oats!)
4 tbs coconut cream
Extra fats servings: Optional
Grain-free granola (or mixed nuts and seeds)
Nut or seed butter (e.g. Peanut butter, almond butter, tahini)
2 cups water or unsweetened almond milk
1tbs honey (optional sweetener)
Add all ingredients to a large bowl and leave overnight. Serve the next day as is OR topped with a few extra slices of banana and yoghurt.
(TIP: For very busy weeks divide this up into 4-6 breakfast containers to have "grab and go" breakfasts for the week).
