New granola recipes โ™ฅ

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.

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, calledย Foodlove. We made several dishes and I will do later posts with the whole explanation of the ingredients and how to do it ๐Ÿ™‚

Zucchini pancakes with basil and goat cheese.
Apple slices topped with hazelnut butter, granola, dark chocolate and pomegranate.
Shakshuka: a spicy dish filled with vegetables and eggs.
And ofcourse…
Aรงai bowl with granola that contains spices from spiced biscuit.


Granola bars with puffed oats. Note: you don’t have to bake these! Just put them in the freezer. Delicious!

Aรงai smoothie

Hey you!

This smoothie is so easy to make and you can drink it for breakfast or just as a little snack.

What do you need?
– 150 gr red fruit (frozen)
– a banana (not frozen)
– 40 gr oatmeal
– 1 tbsp honey
– 2 tsp rose water
– 250 mL coconut water
– as much aรงai powder as you like

Put all of this in a blender and mix! Use all kind of toppings you like ๐Ÿ˜‰ I used puffed quinoa, homemade granola and banana.



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.


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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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!



The herbs I used are from our own little kitchen garden!

Fish and meat make a great combo!

Hey you,

Last weekend I made this dish for the very first time! Quinoa with onion, peas and parmesan (makes it creamy: so nice!). I served this with shrimps and some serrano ham (sounds weird at first but it fits this dish perfectly!).

What do you need? (2pers):
– 100gr quinoa
– 1 onion
– peas (depends on how much you want in your quinoa)
– parmesan (as much as you like!)
– 5 shrimps each
– garlic, pepper, salt
– serrano ham

How to prepare?:
-put the onion in a cooking-pot with some olive oil
– add the quinoa and some water and make sure the quinoa gets enough water to become soft (add some bouillon, gives a nice flavour)
-grill the shrimps, add some pepper, salt and garlic to get a good taste
-when the quinoa is ready you add some parmesan and you stirr until you get a cheesy mixture, finish with pepper and salt
-Put everything on a plate: top the quinoa with some ham and on top of that you put the shrimps.

Serve with a good glass of wine and… attack!



Courgetti for diner

Hey you,

yesterday I made courgetti with avocado cream, chicken, pesto, rucola and some tomatoes. So good (and easy)!

You start with grilling the chicken. When it’s almost finished you put some pesto on top of it. Afterwards you add the courgetti with some olive oil on top of it. Wait until the courgetti is soft.

The avocado cream:
Make sure the avocado is ripe so you can easily make a smooth cream out of it. Just flatten it with a fork, add some salt and pepper and: ready!

Finish with some rucola and tomatoes. Ready to eat!




Feta quinoa salad

Hello there,

we had quinoa for dinner and there was waaay too much so I thought it was a good idea to use it for lunch the day after. I made a combination with some carrots, feta and some onion: really nice! It is quite good with a little bit of green salad and salmon as a side. Finish with some pepper and salt!




Avocado salad

Hey there,

this one’s very easy. All you need is some green salad, tomatoes, salmon, hummus and avocado. I like it with some omelet, but that’s your choice ๐Ÿ˜‰ put it all together in a bowl and enjoy!!



Nice cream

Hey there!

Just to have some variation when it comes to breakfast, I started to make nice cream from time to time. It’s very easy to prepare and sooo yummy!

What do you need?
– frozen red fruit
-1 banana (not frozen)
– Alpro Soya Mild&Creamy (naturel)
– Toppings as you like (I prefer granola)

You mix all the ingredients (not too much Alpro Soya, otherwise it will be like a drink and you need it to be a little bit thick). I don’t use the whole banana because I like a part of it as topping.

Make it as pretty as you like and: DONE!
