Beetroot & Cacao Pancakes

Having a pancake-obsessed boyfriend means they make for a very common breakfast item, especially now that slow breakfasts at home have become quite a regular occurrence. It also means that the classic batter has been done many times, and is now feeling kinda boring so I’ve been playing with different takes on it – the…

Sticky Sourdough Cinnamon Scrolls

These are not your traditional cinnamon scrolls but more like a cross between walnut sticky buns, where the stickiness comes from maple syrup, and cinnamon scrolls. As I am trying to do most of my pastry and bread baking using sourdough starter , I applied this with this recipe as well. The recipe is very…

Quick Oat and Quinoa Porridge

I swear there is porridge hiding underneath all the toppings, I just can’t help but get carried away when sprinkling nuts, nut butters, berries and all the other delicious crunchy stuff on top of porridge, smoothies or chia puddings. But the base, aka porridge in this case, is just as delicious as everything else, and…

Sourdough Hot Cross Buns

Easter has come and gone so this recipe is coming a bit too late, but as we are all spending a lot of the extra time we have on our hands at home, and because these are also absolutely delicious, there is nothing wrong making them pretty much any time of the year. It was…

Vegan Banana Bread

This recipe ticks many boxes for a sweet and indulgent yet quite healthy and wholesome breakfast. It is vegan but you can easily substitute some vegan ingredients for their non-vegan equivalents if you do wish so. Even though it is made mainly from ingredients considered healthy and contains very little sugar and added oil it…

Beetroot Hummus

This beetroot hummus is a bit of a spin on the classic one and a great thing to have on hand for a little healthy snack with veggie sticks, to spread on your toast (that + avocado on top is just perfect) or to add some nice bright color to your favorite bowl. And because…

Peanut Butter Slice

Vegan, refined-sugar free, gluten-free, low on carbs while packed with all the good fats and protein, these little slices are a lovely nutritious snack when you feel like a little treat. And they are incredibly filling so a great go-to on a busy day, when you don’t have time to prepare your meals as well….

Green Smoothie Bowl

A great breakfast on the go if you make it a smoothie, or a super pretty a bit more filling one if you make it as a bowl. Not too sweet either and packed with fibre, omega-3, protein, vitamins and minerals. And the color is just so pretty. It’s works great if you make it…

Coconut & Mango “Ice-Cream”

Every month or so I accidentally make a breakfast that I then like way too much and become obsessed with it for a couple of months, making little variations on it. The latest was this breakfast ice-cream/frozen smoothie bowl for which you actually need only 3 ingredients and they’re all pretty good for you. It…

Green Smoothie

This veggie smoothie is my new favorite way to start a day, so refreshing, hydrating, and an amazing way to get the proper dose of greens into the system. I used to be a bit afraid of putting too many veggies in smoothies and juices and started this one with some mango and orange juice…

Multi-Grain Porridge

I’ve posted this recipe quite a while ago but have been giving it some different spins and found this version that I like best, so here it goes, the updated one… If you ever run out of breakfast ideas and you want to include some┬ámore whole grains in your diet you may want to give…

Crunchy, Healthy Granola

One of my favorite things on the breakfast menus here in Sydney are definitely all the million different granola/fruit/yoghurt combinations, and I’m always super inspired to see all the various ingredients the chefs pair together. But it all starts with a nice granola base, and what better way to have it whenever you like than…
