An easy overnight Bircher recipe, perfect for the warmer months.

I have a couple of go to breakfast options in the morning and this is definitely one of them especially on those days when I don’t have much time in the morning.  It only requires a small amount of preparation the night before and its good to go in the morning topped with your choice of fresh fruit.

This recipe is a great combination of plant based protein, essential fats and complex carbohydrates which are slowly digested keeping you fuller for longer.  The soaking of the ingredients also means it is much easier to digest helping to increase nutrient absorption.  Much better than a store brought cereal for breakfast which is often full of added sugar and refined carbohydrates with minimal nutrients. Adding fruit to this dish also increase the amount of fibre included in your breakfast.

I often keep the base of this recipe the same (i.e buckwheat flakes, quinoa flakes, cinnamon, vanilla extract/powder, almond milk, coconut yoghurt) and often change out the rest of the ingredients with alternative nuts, seeds and fruit.

The recipe below is for one serving but you can make a bigger batch so you have a few breakfast sorted in advance.

This breakfast will keep you feeling full and energised for the day ahead.

I hope you enjoy it!
