20180130_110344-01

Today I want to show you a recipe for chocolate chip cookies. I tried the recipe yesterday and they tasted amazing and were so soft on the inside. The recipe is with cardamom, which makes them taste really special. I made them to surprise a friend, who finally had her last exam this January! (For everyone who still has some exams to do this semester: Good luck!!)

What you need

(recipe for 16 cookies)

  • 225 g spelt flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom
  • 150 g brown sugar
  • 100 g (vegan) butter
  • 100 g (plant-based) milk
  • 25 g chocolate chips (I just cut cooking chocolate into pieces)

The recipe
  1. Turn the oven on 175°C and prepare a sheet with bakery paper. Mix the flour with the baking powder, the salt, cinnamon and the cardamom.
  2. In a second bowl, mix the butter, sugar and milk together.
  3. Now put the dry mix in the second bowl and stir it all together. Then, add the chocolate chunks.
  4. Now you can use two spoons and form little balls from the dough. Put them on the bakery sheet.
  5. Bake the cookies for about 12 minutes and you are good to go!

I hope you like them, enjoy!

Vegan Nut-free chocolate Spread

20180110_121406

Today, I have created a recipe for a chocolate spread that is not only vegan and much more healthy than other spreads, but also nut-free! When I tasted it, I just knew that I had to share the recipe with you guys – so here we go.

You will need…

(1 portion)

1 tbsp coconut oil

2 tbsp unsweetened cacao powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tbsp agave syrup

1/2 tbsp rice drink

The recipe

Super quick & easy: Just mix all of the ingredients together! If you want it a bit sweeter, add some agave syrup. If the consistency is still too thick, add a little bit more of the rice drink.

It tastes amazing with…

1 kornspitz

1 tbsp coconut oil

1 banana (cut into pieces)

I cut the kornspitz into slices (I seriously missed kornspitz so much during my stay in Canada) and „toasted“ it in a pan with the coconut oil. In the end, I added the banana pieces.

When you are done, just spread the chocolate cream on the bread slices. And you’re done. Quick, easy & so delicious if you are craving a sweet breakfast or brunch. It’s quite healthy & also nut-free, in case you are allergic or just don’t like nuts!

Enjoy!

Winter morning granola

20180102_212517

I try to jazz up my morning granola with different fruit whenever I can. Today, I tried a new mix again, and I love it! It’s made with tangerine, banana and dried dates – lots of seasonal fruits. The combination is delicious and so flavourful, you just need to try it!

Here’s what I used…

100 ml oat drink

1 tangerine

1 banana

2 medjool dates (dried)

30 g spelt granola

The recipe

1. Cut all of the fruit into small pieces & put them into a bowl.

2. Add the granola.

3. Heat up the oat drink in a pot.  When it starts to get hot, pour it into the bowl. You can also enjoy it cold, I just prefer my breakfast to be warm!

And now, enjoy! Super quick & so so yummy!!

Healthy Vegan French Toast Recipe

20171224_093403-01

Today, I will show you one of my favourite breakfast recipes: my healthy version of french toast. It is super simple, fills you up and contains healthy ingredients. Nevertheless, it is still very sweet and delicious – perfect, for a morning after the Christmas holidays!

What you will need…

1 multigrain bread roll (or 2-3 slices of multigrain bread)

100 ml coconut milk

2 ml stevia

1 tsp coconut oil

1 banana (ripe ones are sweeter and taste better for this recipe)

1 tsp agave syrup

cinnamon

The recipe

1. Cut the bread roll into slices. Pour the coconut milk into a bowl and add some stevia if you want to sweeten it up a bit. Then dip the bread slices into the coconut milk, so they soak it up.

2. Put the coconut oil into a pan and heat it up (medium to high heat). Then roast the bread slices in the pan until they are a little brown on both sides.

3. Cut the banana into small pieces.

4. Finally, put the bread slices on a plate and top them with the banana pieces, agave syrup and cinnamon for a sweet taste.

And now you can enjoy your breakfast!
