This bircher recipe is a ROOTED favourite - one I come back to every single week without fail! If I were a food, I would be this dish. Naturally grounding with warm spices and natural sweetness - my take on the already existing bircher - adds some simple ingredients to take it up a notch on the health scale. Cinnamon is used to stabilise blood sugar levels and stop cravings throughout the day, turmeric the healing elixir has many properties and chia seeds offer a boost of healthy omegas. 

You can make a bigger batch as it will last 3 days in the fridge. 

Serves 1

-       50g oats

-       1 tablespoon chia seeds

-       1 tablespoon almond butter

-       1 tablespoon maple syrup

-       ½ teaspoon turmeric powder

-       ½ teaspoon ginger

-       1 teaspoon cinnamon

-       200ml almond milk

For the garnish - you can use anything here but we have used:

-       1 tablespoon of mixed sunflower and pumpkin seeds

-       ½ teaspoon poppy seeds

-       1 teaspoon goji berries

-       a pinch of linseeds

-       coconut shavings

-       fruit – berries are best

Mix the ingredients together and soak overnight. You can add a little more almond milk if needed to loosen it up. Try with coconut milk for something slightly more decandent and denser in texture.

Garnish, serve and enjoy.
