My perfect saturday morning includes sleeping in, cuddling in bed with good series while eating some really good breakfast. Besides needing my breakfast to be super delicious, I am always trying my best to make it look pretty and pleasing for the eye. I enjoy putting time to make the food on my plate look good. Also taking cute pictures of the outcome, has become one of my hobbies literally. Of course, the dish can't just look good, it also has to taste well, damn good. And believe me when I say this, I have tried so many different breakfasts and brunches, searching for those perfect recipes. Recipes that are both, delicious and pretty on the plate.
With time I have found quite a few of them and I thought it would be fun to share my favourite top three. So let's dive in!
I have had such a love and hate relationship with matcha. At fist I didn't like it at all, but with time I have learned that if you use the powder right you can make tasty things out of it. I have moved from matcha latte to matcha pancakes, and seriously these are so good. Especially if you serve them witch syrup, berries and nuts.
- 4 dl all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons matcha (green tea) powder
- 4dl oat milk
- 4 tablespoons coconut oil (melted)
- 2 eggs
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- Pinch of salt
- Coconut oil for cooking
Step one: In a large bowl mix together flour, matcha powder, baking powder and salt. You can also add few teaspoons of sugar if needed. I never do that, but some people like the taste a bit more sweet.
Step two: Combine wet ingredients (oat milk, coconut oil and eggs) in other bowl. Then mix all ingredients together, whisk properly until you have nice and smooth batter.
Step three: Pour some batter to the warm pan. Use coconut oil for cooking (vegetable oil works fine too). Cook with a medium heat until the pancakes are lightly brown from both sides.
Serve with whatever you desire.
Tropical smoothie bowl
Smoothie bowls are perfect breakfast when you are looking for something healthy and fresh. And when you serve them in a pretty bowl you get to decorate them however you want, and thats the fun part. Because normal smoothies in a glass would be just too boring right?
- 1 dl strawberries
- 2 dl frozen mangoes
- 1 dl non-fat yoghurt
- Some orange juice
What to do
Step one: Blend all ingredients in a blender. Taste and add something if needed because sometimes the smoothie is either too soggy, chunky or thick. When it's supposed to be smooth and creamy. Also if you prefer the taste to be more sweet you can add some honey and blend again before serving.
Step two: Pour into a pretty bowl and decorate with anything you desire. I used passionfruit, banana, yoghurt and
Glutenfree cinnamon granola
For the record, this recipe is hands down my favourite of all. Besides the fact that I love everything that includes cinnamon this granola is such a perfect match for the autumn weather we are having right now.
For this recipe I always go with the flow. I make this granola over and over again and every time I add different amount of ingredients. So just go with your instincts with this one.
- Gluten-free oats
- Coconut flakes
- Coconut oil
What to do
Step one: preheat the oven to 170°
Step two: Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Take time to mix them well. Add something if needed.
Step three: Spread the granola on baking tray and bake for about 20 minutes. Stir after ten minutes. The granola is ready when it's crisp and lightly browned.
I always eat this with coconut yoghurt and chopped kiwi, and it's so delicious (and looks pretty in the pictures). But you can serve the granola with anything literally; on smoothie bowls, with yoghurt, oatmeal, add to to muffins or make granola bars!
