Chocolate + granola = perfect breakfast

Good morning guys! Today I will share with you a super good granola recipe that I made earlier this week. I love sprinkle granola over my oatmeal or as a topping for my smoothie bowls. This granola is healthy, gluten free, plant based, nutritious and delicious!

Recipe for the granola:

  • 2 dl quinoa flakes
  • 2 dl buckwheat flakes
  • 3 dl oats
  • 2 dl pumpkin seeds
  • 1 dl sesame seeds
  • 1 dl flax seeds
  • 2 dl sunflower seeds
  • 1 dl pecan nuts
  • 2 dl almonds
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt or pink salt
  • 1 1/2 dl water
  • 1/2 dl honey (or maple syrup for vegan option)

Direction:

  1. Mix all the seeds and nuts in a big bowl.
  2. mix the water and the honey and pour it in with the rest. Stir until everything is a little wet.
  3. I used a little bit of coconut oil over  a baking tray and spread the mixture over it.
  4. Put it in the oven at 160 °C. Depending on how roasted you want your granola, but I had it in the oven for 45 minutes. Remember to stir around a little every 15 minutes.
  5. Let it cool down and keep it in a air tight container.

Be happy, be bright, be you

Good morning people! Here is a little breakfast idea, something that I love to make. And the great thing is that you make it the night before, so that it’s ready when you wake up. The main ingredients is chia seeds. I’m sure many of you are familiar with chia seeds, but did you know they have been an important food for the Mayas and Aztecs ages ago? Today chia seeds is known as a fantastic superfood! They are rich in fiber, protein, healthy fats, calcium and magnesium just to mention some of the nutrients in these small black seeds.

Because of their ability to absorb liquid, they can be used to make a “gel” or “pudding” if you like. Below is share a delicious chia breakfast pudding that will fill you with energy to kick start your day!

Recipe:

  • 3 tbs chia seeds
  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • 2 tbs diary free vanilla yogurt
  • Stevia, honey or any sweetener if you want it a little sweet
  • granola and banana for topping

Direction:

  1. Just add the chia seeds in a glass and add the almond milk, yogurt and sweetener. Stir and put it in the refrigerator over night.
  2. Before serving it, top it with some granola, fruits or berries. I used homemade granola (recipe coming soon) and banana.
  3. Enjoy

Flowers, I love you!

I love flowers, all kind of flowers! They bring color and a positive energy to the atmosphere around. Buy yourself some flowers you like and put them somewhere you can get the most out of them! You deserve it!

 


Don’t wait for someone to bring you flowers. Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul.

Give yourself some extra love!

20190302_140959

It doesn’t need to be a special day to give your self some extra love! Any day of the week is a good day. Today I will do 3 things to pamper myself a little extra, just because I deserve it. Join me, you deserve it too!

1. Wash your face and put on a sheet mask. I love sheet masks! If it’s a a good one, you will notice a different on your skin.

2. Eat or drink something healthy today. It could be a giant salad for lunch, a green juice or a superfood smoothie (or anything else that you want, as long as it includes greens)!

3. Meditate. Lay down on the floor, close your eyes and just breath in and out slowly for at least 5 minutes. If you find it hard, look for a guided meditation on Youtube, its plenty of them!

Hope this will boost your mood a little extra!

Healthy sweet potato muffins

20190327_142434

Hi guys! I have a delicious recipe to share with you today. These sweet potato muffins are delicious, healthy, gluten free, plant based and full of nutrients! They are not a dessert type of muffins, they are more the muffins you can enjoy for breakfast, grab with you as a snack during the day with a cup of coffee or just when you want a little bit of sweet. They are fluffy and crunchy!

For 10 big muffins you will need:

2 cups whipped sweet potatoes (prep these before so they have time to get chilled/cold)

2 ripe medium to large bananas

1 1/2 tsp vanilla powder (using raw organic vanilla)

1 tbs almond butter

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 tbs cinnamon

1/2 tsp cardamom

1/2 powdered ginger

pinch of nutmeg

1 tsp salt

1 2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk

1/3 cup coconut syrup

1 1/2 cup gluten free oats

1 cup  Buckwheat flour

1/2 cup finely ground flax seeds

3/4 cup quinoa flakes

shopped pecan nuts and almonds of topping

Direction:

1. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees Celsius.

2. Whisk the bananas smooth and then add the sweet potatoes. I used a kitchen machine.

3. Whisk in the almond butter.

4. Combine the almond milk and the coconut syrup and add it in with the rest (the banana and sweet potato mix).

5. Combine all the dry ingredients (flours, baking powder/soda and seasonings)

6. Slowly stir in the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients

7. Fill your muffins cup about 2/3 full and  sprinkle over some chopped pecan nuts and almonds. Place them into your preheated oven for about 30 min. Depends on your oven, but you might want to turn the pan after 15 minutes.

 

I hope you like them if you try! They are filled with good ingredients. What I call a “guilt-free” treat ❤
