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!
Yup, this is basically a mini cake for one. Or baked oatmeal in a mug. Whatever you want to see it as, mugcakes are the perfect dessert or afternoon snack – easy and quick to make and super indulgent!
If you have been following me for a while, you know that this vegan baking thing is still quite the struggle for me. And adding the gluten-free criteria to it in the past few weeks certainly has not made it any easier! 🙂 Apart from these perfect vegan & gluten-free brownies, I haven’t found a lot of recipes that reliably turn out well.
