Kimberley's 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. 

Recipe: 

Serves 4-6  

Carbohydrates:

2 cups oats 

2 cups frozen blueberries OR 1 large apple grated 

Protein: 

4 Scoops Whey Protein 

Healthy Fats: 

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 

Shredded coconut 

Grain-free granola (or mixed nuts and seeds) 

Nut or seed butter (e.g. Peanut butter, almond butter, tahini) 

Other: 

2 cups water or unsweetened almond milk 

1tbs honey (optional sweetener) 

Cinnamon 

 

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). 


ENJOY!
