I stopped drinking coffee (for various reasons), but I still eat coffee cake! This vegan hazelnut-chocolate-coffee cake is low in sugar – so it doesn’t taste too sweet – and can be made gluten-free. You can also leave out the hazelnuts in case of an allergy, and play around with the amount of sugar you add.
No, I wasn’t one of those people who started baking banana bread religiously during the pandemic. I’ve always loved banana bread, but I’ve never had the perfect recipe, I always ended up trying different ones. But now I’ve finally honed in on a recipe and perfected it.
As you can probably tell from the recipes on this blog, I love colorful food and experimenting with colors. This passion was fueled even more when I received the book Unicorn Food, in which Kat Odell put together healthy and colorful recipes, including her beautiful ‘unicorn milks’.
The only thing I hate about waffles is how much work they are to make. I’m a minimalist, and also a lazy chef, so storing an extra kitchen appliance that has only one purpose and is also a pain to clean, just doesn’t really appeal to me. That’s why I usually opt for pancakes when I’m feeling extra on the weekends (instead of waffles).
After having overnight oats for breakfast every day of the week for a few years (and pancakes or oatmeal on the weekends), I’m now experimenting more with different foods for breakfast. Sweet potatoes are one of my favorites because they’re naturally lightly sweet and easy to combine with other breakfast foods, like coconut yogurt and granola.
I love having smoothie bowls for breakfast! Especially when they’re made with a high speed blender, so they are actually as smooth as their name suggests. Smoothies make it easy to sneak in all important nutrients, they are creamy, versatile and delicious. This one contains more vegetables than fruits, but you can’t even taste them!
In my opinion, nothing (apart from the smell of freshly brewed coffee) is more pleasant to wake up to than a house smelling of warm cinnamon and toasted nuts. This is exactly what you will get when you make a batch of this vegan granola.
Last week, I could only eat soft foods because I had a wisdom tooth surgery. And since I was really craving chocolate and we had a few ripe avocados, I tried out this chocolate mousse.
If you are currently (self-)quarantined at home, and don’t know what to do with yourself anymore…why not bake a cake? This vegan red wine cake is one of the easiest cakes I’ve ever made, and it turns out so good every time!
There are a few types of Christmas cookies that you can find everywhere in Germany around Christmas – the classics. Next to simple butter cookies, you have vanilla moon cookies, and these cinnamon stars.
