They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so I’ve used unflavoured whey protein isolate to make a high protein bircher muesli to give me a good start when I’m training. Ingredients 1 apple, cored & grated (leave skin on) ½ cup milk 25g (1 scoop) unflavoured whey protein isolate (I used Protein Dynamix) 1 tablespoon sultanas 1 tablespoon chopped almonds 1 teaspoon cinnamon ½ cup (40g) rolled oats Method 1 2 Combine all ingredients together in a bowl and leave to soak overnight. Serve cold, add extra fruit or yoghurt if desired. Notes: Per serve, this recipe provides 33g protein (25 per cent energy). This recipe is high in protein. To claim as high in protein, at least 20 per cent of energy needs to come from protein.
