New granola recipes ♥

Hey guys,

This week I made two types of granola: one with dark chocolate and a touch of coffee, the other one with almond and spiced cookie.

The first one: chocolate and coffee
What do you need?
-200gr oatmeal
– 1 little cup of coffee
– as much chocolate as you like (I use 86% cacao)
– 50gr almond flakes
– 100 gr nuts (wallnut, almond,…)
– agave syrup
– sea salt
– coconut oil

How to do it?
Melt the chocolate and the coconut oil and mix it with the oatmeal so it becomes a sticky mixture. Afterwards you add the coffee and just a little bit of agave syrup and a little bit of sea salt. Mix it up and put it in the oven for 20minutes (160 degrees) and make sure you stirr every 5minutes. In the meantime you grill the nuts and flakes (with some coconut oil). When they become a little bit brown, they’re ready. Mix these with the oven baked oatmeal. Afterwards you can melt some more of the chocolate and mix this with the granola so you have an extra layer of chocolate. Delicious!

Almond and spiced cookie granola
What do you need?
-200gr of oatmeal
-100mL agave syrup
-4 tbsp melted coconut oil
-100gr nuts
-50gr almond flakes
-spiced cookie (I use herbs of these)

How to do it?
Exactly the same as the previous one, only now you cover the oatmeal with melted coconut oil and the agave syrup. Put enough spiced cookie into it because you lose some of the flavour while baking. While the nuts and flakes are getting grilled, you can add some spiced cookie too.

Enjoy!

Healthy Breakfast Workshop

Hey you!

Yesterday I did a workshop from this girl Stefanie Baert. She creates healthy recipes and they are amazing! She has her own foodblog and website, called Foodlove. We made several dishes and I will do later posts with the whole explanation of the ingredients and how to do it 🙂

Antwerp for today

Hey guys!

Today I went for some quality time with my lovely friend Irmy in Antwerp. We had lunch at Cordoba Foodbar. This place has a really nice atmosphere! We went for toast with goat cheese and pastrami. Yummie!

After that my brother joined us for some drinks. Had the best day ♥

Cake for breakfast!

Hey you,

I made a cake containing oatmeal, banana, raspberries and lots of nuts. This is perfect for breakfast (for example with some yoghurt as a side or just the cake as itself).

What do you need?
– 400 grams of oatmeal
– 3 bananas
– 4 eggs
– 200 mL water
– 2 tsp cinnamon
– 2 tbsp honey
– 250 gr frozen berries (I prefer raspberries)
– 150 gr nuts (those you prefer)

How to do it?
– First you weigh the oatmeal and you add the bananas to this. Flatten them with a fork and make sure you have a sticky mixture.
– Add the eggs, water, honey and cinnamon.
– Last but not least: add the berries and nuts. Stirr very good and when you have a good mixture, you can put this in a cake form (! Add some coconut oil to this before you put the mixture in it, so it doesn’t get to sticky when it gets out of the oven).

Bake in the oven for like 40 minutes by 175 degrees.

Enjoy!

All I do is eat

Hey you,

I had a lovely weekend and like always, a lot of food got involved haha!

Saturday I had breakfast with my boyfriend at Julie’s House. They are very known for their cupcakes and homemade pies!

Later that day I catched up with my friends Eva and Jeroen. We went to Le Pain Quotidien. This place is very known and you have it all over the world. Because I was still full because of breakfast earlier that morning I just had a little snack.

Check it out!

Breakfast & friends

Hey there!

This morning I had breakfast with my best friend at Soep&Zoet. It’s a little, cosy hotspot in Sint-Niklaas,Belgium. You can have breakfast, brunch and lunch there. Or just simply a coffee if you’d like to.

We had some greek yoghurt with fresh fruit and granola (sugarfree), a breakfast waffle with bacon, a poached egg and some avocado and at last also a smoothie bowl with cacao and peanut butter, together with granola and fresh fruit.

Waaay too much but oooh so good!

Check it out!

Biggest sweet potato addict alive

Hey there,

for lunch I prepared a stuffed sweet potato. It’s been quite a long time that I’ve eaten sweet potato so this was needed, haha 😉

What do you need?
– 1 sweet potato
– humus
– avocado
– spring onion
– pepper, salt
– chive

How to prepare?
Very easy: just make some little holes in the potato with a fork or knive and put it in the microwave for like 10 minutes. When it’s ready you can cut it through and fill it up.
First I add the humus, after this the avocado and at last the herbs. First flatten the avocado so it’s creamy. Finish with some pepper and salt!

Enjoy
