Muffins!

Banana, Date and Walnut Muffins, yum! I made these muffins yesterday for breakfast and filled up the freezer for the week to come. Yet, these are also great next to your coffee, as an office snack, before or after training, anytime actually. I have chosen to go all plantbased, but that does not mean you have to. If you go for the not plant based version just remove the plantbased milk and chia-eggs from the ingredient list below and use 3 eggs. My choice to go entirely plant based is health, animal welfare and environmentally related, all in equal portions. If you would like more information on any of this, don’t hesitate to drop me a message through email! Anyway, let’s bake some muffins! Ingredients: 2 cups of almond flour 2 tsp baking soda Pinch of sea salt 1 tbspn cinnamon 1 cup of dates, pitted and chopped 3 ripe bananas 3 chia-eggs ( 3 tbspns chiaseed +7,5 tbspns water ) 1 dl plant based milk of your choice. I used soymilk yesterday. Tomorrow might …

Vegan oven pancakes

“Just trust the process”. “Be open to everything”. Yes, this morning was one of those mornings that those two expressions made me look wider than what was in front of me and to my eyes in that moment wasn’t working. I was about to make these totally yummy almond butter bars for breakfast. I had about 30 minutes and a busy day ahead. Getting the recipe out, starting with adding the chia seeds to the water for the “chia eggs”, then switching on the oven while I was sipping my freshly made matcha oat milk latte I could hardly wait to taste these yummy bars after meditation. You see, that was the plan – let the almond butter bars bake in the oven as I was in my morning meditation. The third ingredient on the list was apple puree. And when I make these bars I always make my own homemade, sugarfree apple puree the night before. Not last night I didn’t. Crap! What am I going to do now? The whole morning starts to …

Summer breakfast

This summery morning I made one of my favourite breakfasts. OK, I confess, I make this one in winter as well, but this time of the year it just seems to taste better. Like the sunshine enhances all about this Strawberry Soup… It is fast and easy to make,  tastes yum and leaves you really happy from the inside. All you need is; 200 – 225 grams of strawberries 2 dl of coconut milk 2 teaspoons manuka honey some fresh mint   You just toss the strawberries, coconut milk and manuka honey in the mixer and mix it all together. Pour it in a soup bowl. Add some fresh mint to garnish. Enjoy! You can of course supplement the strawberries for any other berries you´d like. Go ahead and be as creative as you wish! <3    

Chocolate breakfast muffins

I made these muffins Saturday – orginially from a recipe from a Dutch Paleo magazine –  , posting pics on Instagram as I was baking along. Many of you have contacted me via DM on Instagram, Facebook Messenger, What´s App and more for the recipe the past few days, so instead of typing it out a zillion of times I thought I´d share it here ;-). You need; 250 gr almond butter 2 eggs (for a vegan version, soak 30 gr of chiaseed in 3 dl of water for 15 minutes and use the whole “gunk” instead of eggs) 3 tbspns raw cacao powder 1 tspn vanilla powder 3 ripe bananas 1,5 tspn baking powder 100 gr of 90 – 100 % dark chocolate, chopped up   How to; Heat the oven to 200 degrees centigrade. Add all the ingredients, aside from the dark choclate, and mix them in your kitchen machine or hand held mixer. Stir in the chopped up chocolate. Set the muffin liners (you can make your own from parchment paper as …

Kale and spinach soup

Oh so yummy easy as soup

Short post again ;-). It will take you just about 1 minute longer to cook this soup than the time it takes you to read this recipe post –  that´s how short they both are ;-). Ingredients; 150 gr kale 100 gr spinach 500 ml vegetable stock half a lemon 2 cm approx fresh ginger root 1 onion coconut oil pepper Sautée the onion and the garlic in the coconut oil in a pot on medium heat. Add the kale and spinach and allow them to sautée along for a little while. Stir in the stock, the ginger and the lemon juice. Use a mixer to get the soup in  smoother state, spice with the pepper and serve! Enjoy!
