“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 fall apart in front of my inner eyes.
Then I remember everything I have and still am learning from the likes of Dr. Joe Dispenza, Gregg Braden, all the ancient texts I have studied up until now. Things like ” see the possiblities” popped up in my mind and I started to look around at what ingredients I could use to quickly make something I could still let bake in the oven during meditation.
I had bananas. I had the “chia-egg”. I had more fruit. I had seeds, dried berries, oats.Spices. And more.
So I made this oven baked banana pancake, and do you know what – it was yummy! And superduperhealthy on top of that. So yummy that I want to have it more often. Which meant I had to write down the recipe for myself. And save it here.
I hope you will like it too!
Preparation time is around 5 minutes, cooking time 25 minutes – but those 25 minutes you can do other stuff. Or just sit ;-).
Some good old H2O, about 1/2 cup or 1 dl
2 tbspns chiaseed
1 tspn cinnamon
1/2 tspn curcuma/ turmeric powder
1/2 tspn nutmeg
1 tspn baking powder
2 dl oats
2 tspns chiaseed
2 tspns coconutflakes
2 tspns gojiberries
2 tspns sesameseeds
2 tspns hempseeds
2 tspns pumpkinseeds
2 tspns sunflowerseeds
2 tspns dark mulberries
2 tspns light mulberries
Start with making the chia-egg by stirring the 2 table spoons of chia seeds in to the 1dl or 1/2 cup of water. Let it sit for about 20 minutes, or until it has become a sort of gel.
Heat the oven to 180 degrees centigrade.
Mush the bananas with a fork in a small bowl. Add the baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and turmeric powder and mix well with the fork.
Stir all the dry ingredients (yes, there is more chia seeds in that part too) together in a bowl. Make sure they are mixed well.
Add the chia-egg to the bananamix and stir it in well.
Add all of it together. Smear it out pretty thin on baking paper in an oven baking tray or pan.
Let it bake in the middle of the oven for about 23 minutes.
Serve with fruit and/or berries.
Let me know what you think!
