Fantastischer Kaiserschmarrn, der fit hält - myBioma

Fantastic Kaiserschmarrn that keeps you fit

The weekend is approaching and we finally want a sweet classic from our grandma! What could be better than a wonderful Kaiserschmarrn? But everyone knows that grandma's Schmarren is not exactly a smart choice. That's why we've come up with a low-calorie and healthier version - with plenty of fresh fruit, vitamins and fiber. Whether for brunch or lunch, our Kaiserschmarrn will keep you energized throughout the day and help build up your intestinal flora.

How Kaiserschmarrn makes your gut happy

Our recipe will not only please your palate, but also your gut and especially your intestinal bacteria. This is because we use wholemeal spelt flour and hardly any sugar compared to conventional pancakes. In fact, we completely omit refined sugar from the dough and replace it with a little honey. We also use low-fat buttermilk, which has fewer calories than milk and is particularly high in protein.

The large amount of fruit and fiber in wholemeal flour gives your intestinal bacteria a real workout. The bacteria break down this fiber and make many nutrients available for the first time. This helps you to extract all the valuable ingredients from your meals and at the same time the bacteria utilize some of the "waste" for themselves. This is exactly what they need to colonize your intestines and feel comfortable there. (1)

It is particularly important to pay attention to the origin and cultivation method when buying fruit and vegetables. It is best to always buy regional and organic produce. You can be sure that your fruit has been sprayed or treated as little as possible, which will also be good for your gut. You are also doing something good for the environment! After all, we have plenty of fresh fruit from our own gardens.


Ingredients Kaiserschmarrn You need these colorful ingredients for our delicious Kaiserschmarrn.

For 3 people
Preparation time about 25 minutes

  • 200 g wholemeal spelt flour

  • 4 eggs

  • 300 ml low-fat buttermilk

  • Dash of water

  • 1 tbsp honey

  • A pinch of salt

  • 1 tbsp butter

  • Apples, pears, blueberries or other fresh fruit...

  • Dried fruit (raisins, cranberries, dates...)

  • Nuts (hazelnuts, pistachios...)

  • Powdered sugar for sprinkling



Now it's time to cook! First, preheat the oven to 180° C. Next, separate the eggs and mix the buttermilk, egg yolks, honey and flour in a large bowl. If the mixture is very sticky, add a dash of water.

In another bowl, beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt until stiff. Now carefully fold the beaten egg whites into the flour mixture.

Melt the butter in a large pan. Then pour in the batter and sprinkle in some fresh and dried berries. Fry the pancake over a medium heat, turning after about five minutes. The second side needs a little less time to brown nicely.

Bake the Schmarrn in the oven for approx. 10 - 12 minutes. After removing from the oven, tear into bite-sized pieces with two forks.

Now we're almost done: Finally, you can arrange the Schmarrn beautifully! Simply decorate with fresh fruit, nuts and dried fruit and serve with some yogurt or curd cheese (it has more protein!). To be honest, we simply can't do without at least a pinch of powdered sugar to sprinkle on top.
