Per 2 serves:
1/2 C rolled oats
1t flax seed (linseed)
1T sunflower seeds
1T almonds or other nuts
(or you can use LSA mix from health shop about 1-2T per serve)
1T dessicated or shredded coconut
1T Chia seeds
Dried fruit of your choice.
Combine the above in a bowl - cover with warm water add 1T of plain unsweetened yoghurt or squeeze of lemon. Leave on bench overnight. In the morning it is ready to eat as is, or you can cook it and make porridge, but if you plan to do this leave the flaxseeds out as they don't like to be heated.
Optional additions in the morning are berries, fruit, yoghurt, honey, molasses, maple syrup, cream.
Store left over bircher in the fridge ready for the next morning. I sometimes make up 3-4 mornings worth at once.
Why soak your oats: It makes them more digestable and therefore much more nutritious.
Oats are a great source of fibre, protein and mineral manganese, selenium, iron and magnesium as well as B vits making them great for the nervous system.
