I love breakfast. It is definatly my favourite meal of the whole day. Unfortunatly it can be a little rushed during the week, which is why I take even more time for breakfast on the weekends. I am definatly more of a morning person, than an evening Person which means that I am more productive in the morning and I get more done. That also means that I need a good breakfast to fill me up, set my mood and makes me ready to rumble. I thought I would share my favourite breakfasts with you, so that you can rock school, work or every other thing in your life.
I am more of a sweet person in the morning which means I am up for some fresh berries and yoghurt, or couscous with dates or something like that, but I also have a recipe for everybody who likes it savory in the morning ( and no it is not avocado on toast, although I like that too:))
1.Oatmeal with caramelized Banana and Coconut
When I was in Munich I bought the cookbook “Eat better not less” by the lovely Nadia Damaso and OMG there are a bunch of exiting good recipes in there and every single one of them looks just incredible, but the best part of the book is definitly the breakfast section. Just those recipe are every single penny worth the book price. I made every single one of the breakfast receipes and I took the best of a few recipes and combined it to a breakfast goddess!
You will need for one bowl:
- 250 ml water
- a pinch of salt
- 4-6 tablespoons oatmeal
- 250 ml coconut rice milk
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 2-3 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
- 1 banana
- coconut oil
- shredded coconut
- coconut sugar or honey
In a saucepan bring the water, salt and oatmeal to boil and let it simmer. Add the milk slowly until you reached the wanted texture. Then add the coconut oil and the honey. In a little pan heat up a little bit of coconut oil, slice up the banana in half and put it with the sliced side down in the pan. Add a Little bit of honey or coconut sugar and sprinkle some shredded coconut on top.
Wait until the banana is caramalized and golden. Take a bowl and fill in the oatmeal, place the banana on top, and garnish with shredded coconut or some pecan nuts if you want. Enjoy the breakfast goddess with your favourite hot drink and a good Magazine.
2.Fluffy Greek Yoghurt Pancakes
A weekend breakfast without some pancakes is no weekend breakfast right?
You will need for 14 pancakes:
- 260g flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3 eggs
- 2 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 230g Greek yoghurt
- 200ml milk or almond milk
- rasberries, blueberries or other toppings
Mix together all the dry ingredients in a bowl. In a second bowl combine together the eggs, oil and yoghurt and wisk well until well combined then add the milk and mix well again.
Now combine the dry and the wet mixture. Don´t worry about any lumps in the mixture. If you want to have berries or anything else in your pancakes, now is the time to fold them in.
Heat a medium pan with some butter and pour in some mixture and spread it a little bit. Cook them for 3-4 minutes or until they are golden then flip them and cook them for a further 2-3 minutes. Repeat with the remaining batter. Serve them with some icing sugar on top and an extra blob of yoghurt and some berries.
3. Scrambled eggs and a bread with butter and wild chive
This is my go-to breakfast when I am in a rush or just don´t know what I want. It is just so delicious.
You will need for one portion:
- 2 eggs
- salt and pepper
- some milk
- 1 slice of your favourite bread
- some butter
- some chive
Mix the eggs, salt and pepper and a sprinkle of milk. Heat a pan with some butter, put in the egg mixture and stir until the egg is cooked. Place the scrambled egg on a plate. Take your slice of bread, spread some butter on and sprinkle some pieces of chive on top. Ready to serve!
