Simple Vegan Banana Bread

October 20, 2015

Simple Vegan Banana Bread

I like my banana’s unripe. As in almost green, and still a little on the firm side. Actually, you just have two types of people:
1. Those who like their banana’s with brown spots, love the mushiness and the overly present banana smell and flavor.
2. And on the other hand, people who like their banana’s on the green-yellow side of the spectrum, still a bit firm and without an overly banana taste –> Meee! 🙋

PB & Jelly Oatmeal

October 4, 2015

PB & Jelly Oatmeal

PB & J is of course a classic sandwich variation, and I assume that there are plenty of people that have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich as breakfast – okay, perhaps not that many here in the Netherlands as the combination is not as popular as in the US, but you get the idea.

The point is that white bread, processed peanut butter and store-bought jam is really not that good for you, unfortunately. Now, of course it would be easy to simply replace those ingredients, but that is also just a bit boring, so I created this PB & Jelly Oatmeal variety!!

Avocado Boats with Eggs and Creamy Pesto

Avocado Boats with Eggs and Creamy Pesto

Do you remember that Creamy Pesto with Walnuts and Spinach?

Yes, that extremely delicious, full-of-goodness one 😍

Well, I made a little something special to go with it! Because we all know that the possibilities with pesto are basically endless, but sometimes you just need a little extra convincing to actually make a condiment recipe – I think Lindsay from Pinch of Yum expresses it perfectly here. So, that is why I created these Avocado Boats with Eggs and Creamy Pesto – okay partly, but we’ll get back to that!

Back to the important things in life… Breakfast! Aren’t these avo boats gorgeous?! I can imagine they would be a total show stopper at a family brunch or a luxurious breakfast.

Two Ingredient Raspberry Jam

September 8, 2015

Two Ingredient Raspberry Jam

To be honest, I’ve never liked chia pudding.

To be really honest, I absolutely and totally hate them.

That weird, slimy texture, and those tiny crunchy balls… Nope, those puddings are not meant for me. Maybe I’ve just never made it the right way, or maybe it’s just that my tastebuds are weird, but I guess I’ll just have to live with it haha.

However, after all my downright horrible chia pudding experiments, I was still left with a whole bag of chia seeds. Of course they can be used as an egg replacer, in smoothies and to thicken things in general, but with my 500 gram (yes, 500 gram chia seeds – I don’t know what I was thinking when I ordered them at iHerb) I really needed some other purposes for them to finish them before the expiration date.

Apple Muffins with Walnuts, Cinnamon and Zante Currants

Apple Muffins with Walnuts, Cinnamon and Zante Currants

I know these muffins are actually more like an autumn recipe, but since apples are practically available year round nowadays, I will share it anyway, because they are DELICIOUS! These muffins are great to make a big batch of, as they will keep for about a week in the fridge without the topping – although I bet they won’t last that long haha.

Apple Pie Oatmeal

June 10, 2015

Apple Pie OatmealThis breakfast is definitely one of my favorite breakfasts EVER. I’ve been making this for quite some time now, but I didn’t photograph it earlier for the blog, as – lets just be honest about it – it is so so so difficult to make oatmeal look tasty! Sometimes I even have to remind myself that what I’m going to have for breakfast is actually really delicious and healthy and good for you… So, I never even tried to photograph it, until this weekend! So hereby I present to you: the best oatmeal you’re ever going to have, without all the nasty stuff and added sugars and the like.

Cherry Garcia Muffins

May 20, 2015

Cherry Garcia MuffinsThese muffins… These are so delicious, I can’t even explain. Did you ever had the Ben & Jerry’s flavor Cherry Garcia? Personally, I’ve always loved the combination of cherries and chocolate, and for this muffin I was inspired by the classic Ben & Jerry’s flavor. Now, I know these may not look like the prettiest muffins, but men, these are really really good! And if you feel a little fancy, you can just drizzle them with some dark chocolate, like I did with some of them.

Savory Egg Muffins

April 29, 2015

Savory Egg Muffins
Normally I’m not really a big fan of eggs, mainly because I’m not very keen on the chicken industry, but for organic eggs I gladly make an exception. These egg muffins are perfect for a Sunday brunch or as a quick on-the-go breakfast, when made up front. You can warm these up in the microwave, but cold they are just as good!

Orange Banana Pancakes

Orange Banana Pancakes
I am so happy! It has finally become spring here in the Netherlands, and with temperatures of 15 to 20 degrees Celcius you can even call that warm haha. So in line with the weather, I had to make something that was spring-like, and since it is Sunday, and I wanted to have a nice breakfast, I made pancakes! Loving the #pancakesunday trend.
