If you’re like me and realized that years of toast has done you no favors in the health department you’ve probably been looking around for a healthy breakfast alternative. We move pretty slowly in the mornings and as much as I love the idea of a cooked breakfast I know that most mornings its just not going to happen. Having a healthy breakfast alternative that is pre-prepared, delicious and kid friendly is my ultimate morning goal.
Bircher has become a regular hit in our house. I love the creamy texture and the versatility of customizing your own version to suit your family’s tastebuds. I renamed it Breakfast Pudding so that my son likens it to a treat. But really, its a healthy breakfast that fills him up and gives him all the energy he needs to start his day.
This recipe from Kunara – the amazing healthy food emporium on the Sunshine Coast in Australia – is an excellent place to start your Bircher addiction.
