If you grew up in Germany, there is a good chance you grew up with Nutella. In our house, we always stocked at least one glass of Nutella and it was a sweet & constant part of my childhood. I remember when I visited my grandmother after kindergarten, she would make me a bread roll with butter and Nutella while I was watching The Simpsons. 🙂
I am at home for the holidays and am enjoying the slow mornings and late breakfasts here at my mom’s house. One of these grey and gloomy mornings, I got up and felt like having a warm and indulgent breakfast, so I gathered a few ingredients and whipped up this gooey warm and creamy porridge.
It’s been a while since I published the last recipe for energy bites/bliss balls on this blog and I figured gingerbread flavor would be appropriate right now. These bites are packed with protein and perfect for a pre- or post-workout snack, or an afternoon bite with a cup of coffee.
If you’re still looking for a breakfast for Christmas, I have the perfect suggestion for you. These gingerbread pancakes are based on the first gingerbread pancake recipe I posted, but I topped them off with some fried cinnamon apples & pieces of gingerbread. They taste like Christmas on a plate! 🙂
When it comes to cooking, I’m lazy. If there is any way to avoid a pile of dishes to clean up after, I will choose it. So naturally, I gravitate towards one-dish meals and shortcuts like this mugcake. You can whip it up in one mug and eat it straight out of there!
I’ve never made vegan mousse au chocolat. I never wanted to try the full-fat version with avocado, so I just contented myself with dark chocolate for the occasional chocolate fix.
To prepare for the current Christmas craziness of overeating on candy, I did a sugarfree November, where I cut out all industrial sugar (meaning white sugar in chocolate, drinks, pastries and so on). This was tough for about 2 weeks as I was strongly craving my afternoon treat, but after those first weeks my body got used to it.
If you are anything like me, you could eat oats every morning without getting tired of them. I don’t even need much variation – I am just looking forward to my chocolate oats from the moment I wake up.
As soon as the leaves start falling and the air is getting crisp, I start looking forward to pumpkin soup, mulled wine & gingerbread and cuddled up mornings with warm oatmeal in bed. Good thing I have the perfect recipe for that. 🙂
Sooo….pancakes. 🙂 If you have been following me on Instagram, you have had the pleasure of enjoying my pancake spam in the past few weeks. I basically use every free morning I get to make pancakes and have tried different variations every time!
