Healthified chocolate chip cookies

Evening babes, are you ready for another recipe inspiration post? ♥ I have found some beautiful colorful dishes that I cannot wait to try, there’s both the super healthy ones and the not in any way healthy ones – it’s all about balance right? ;) I am particularly obsessed with the cheesecake filled chocolate bundt cake and while it is not the type of cake I usually bake, then...

Green power juice with wheatgrass

Good afternoon babes! I am still going through my archives for old recipes that are yet to be translated into English and every time I think I am done, then I seem to find another one – so here we go again ;) This time it is definitely one of the healthier ones, but after the cake I posted the other day, then it is probably a good idea with some greens right? This green power juice with wheat grass is...

Homemade healthified Nutella

If there is one thing I have always LOVED to indulge in then it is Nutella!! It is sinfully delicious and you can pretty much add it to everything or just eat it straight out of the jar with a spoon..ahem not that it is something I have ever done ;) However, it is sadly not exactly the healthiest thing to eat, so I have experimented with making my own healthified version and guysss (!!!) it turned out soo good! :D...

Recipes I want to try // Hearty fall recipes

1-pot pumpkin yellow curry by Minimalist Baker – find the recipe right here! It is getting crazy cold and I am not really feeling it, so all I want to do these days is to cuddle up on the couch with lots of blankets, tea and Netflix or to cook up lots of hearty meals – I mean, I need a little extra padding in this cold right?! ;) Loosing those extra kilos I put on while I worked on my cookbook can totally...

Halloween // 8 of my favorite Halloween recipes

 Halloween inspired spicy baked and stuffed bell peppers – find the recipe right here! Evening lovelies, are you ready for things to get a little spooky? ;) I always get so excited about Halloween (even though we don’t really celebrate it here in Denmark) and I just cannot wait to cuddle up on the couch with lots of blankets, Halloween treats and The Nightmare Before Christmas on the tv. Ideally I would spend Halloween in the US like I did two...

Baking for my family – croissants and cinnamon bread with apple and dates

Sponsored. This post is made in collaboration with Danerolles.  As you guys know, I have never been that fond of baking and neither have my parents, but we have always enjoyed spending quality time together with good food and the occasional baked goods. When it came to the baked goods we would often resort to the easier solutions (especially when we were little) that saved time and dishes. One of our favorites were these Danerolles cans with fresh dough, they ensured...

Material dreams // 15 of my favorite wrap skirts

Morning lovelies, I hope your day is off to a good start? ♥ I started mine with a matcha latte and a power walk in the cold morning air, surprisingly refreshing and actually quite lovely! I am not in any way a morning person, but it feels good to start the day right with a little exercise and fresh air. As I have mentioned before I am trying to loose a little weight and since my knee is still not well, then...

Recipes I want to try // All things pumpkin

Pumpkin spice pancakes by The Simple Veganista – find the recipe right here! While I am not really a fall or winter kind of person (I’ll take spring and summer any day!), then I have actually found some surprising joy in the shift of weather this year. The leaves changing colors, cosying up under blankets with lots of tea and a good book, fluffy knitted sweaters, candles and a change of seasonal produce. I have rarely found joy in those...

Winter is coming // 6 winter coats + 20% off

It is getting colder outside and while it may not be time for winter coats just yet, then it is the perfect time to invest in a new coat. Whenever I postpone buying a new winter jacket until it is actually winter, then all the good ones are usually sold out, so this year I want to get a headstart. I have put together a little collage with 6 of my favorite coats that I would absolutely love to add to my...

Smartbake – baking made easy!

Sponsored. This post is made in collaboration with Smartbake.dk Evening lovelies! Today I want to talk about a new baking concept that has pretty much made my entire week. As I have shared many times before, I am very fond of bread, as in I would actually prefer good bread over cake or pastry, but I have also always hated baking. Not the best combo right? I am slowly starting to enjoy baking more, but it will never really be my thing. I...

Lovely little things // Family roadtrip, launch of my book, birthday gifts + more

∼ The most beautiful chocolates from our Bali trip ∼ Evening lovelies! It is time for another post in my ‘Lovely little things’ series, I hope you enjoy getting these little glimpses into my everyday life.

Creamy coconut spread with hazelnut and cacao

 One of the things you will always be able to find in my fridge is a homemade spread of some sort – either sweet or savory, often both. My newest obsession is this super easy to make coconut spread with hazelnut and cacao. It is so delicious and melts on the tongue, just yum! I love to use the coconut spread on toasted sourdough bread as pictured with strawberries and bee pollen or in my healthified desserts – the possibilities are pretty much...

Energizing matcha popsicles – homemade, healthy and plant-based

Okay so the weather in Denmark right now is certainly not very summery, but I am still craving ice cream and popsicles, so lets just pretend that the sun is shining ;) I have shared these bright green matcha popsicles before, but only in Danish so I thought it was time to get the recipe translated to english as well. They are by far one of my favorite popsicle recipes, I mean how pretty are these?! I love the beautiful green...

Buy in bulk and save a lot of time + money! (w. links to webshops) – updated

Good evening lovelies! I hope you have all had an amazing weekend? ❤︎ Today I want to share a post with you guys that I have been working on for quite a while, it has taken me forever to find all the products at the best prices without compromising the quality, but I am finally done and I am so excited to share it with you! I have recently started buying my favorite products online since there is not only a...

Banana pancakes with blueberries and lemon

When I have a little extra time one of my favorite things to make for breakfast are banana pancakes, they are so tasty – almost like dessert, but still healthy – and super filling! I have already posted a whole bunch of pancake recipes before (find them here!), but in my opinion you can never really have too many pancakes recipes ;) I usually like to keep my pancakes quite plain and simple (kinda boring I know) and then spice them up with lots of toppings instead,...

Spicy cheezy popcorn

 Hi lovelies! I am finally able to share another recipe with you guys! As I have mentioned before, I have so much going on right now (I am so happy and excited, but also a bit of a stressed and nervous wreck), which makes it hard to keep up with the blog, but whenever I have a little extra time, then I promise that I will do my best to update the blog. Some of you have been asking about my  January Challenge, it is still...

Homemade foodie gifts – updated version

Morning lovelies! Christmas is almost here and I am so excited! Later today my sister and I are going to our parents place for the Christmas holidays and I just cannot wait! I love spending time with my family and I have planned to watch Christmas movies in front of the fireplace, cuddle with the cats, bake lots of Christmas treats, go for long walks in the woods, to eat lots of good food and to just enjoy the company of my family and...

Recipes I want to try // Gorgeous Christmas treats

Hi Lovelies, I hope you are enjoying your weekend? I am definitely enjoying mine, I am recipe testing and baking like crazy, but in a cozy non-stressful way unlike some other weekends ;) I am working on a couple new recipes for Christmas treats, but to be honest they are not quite there yet, so instead I have found some gorgeous Christmas treats around the web that I thought you guys would love – I cannot wait to try them...

Flourless chickpea blondies with peanut butter and tahini

These yummy chickpea blondies drizzled with white chocolate is one of my new absolute favorite treats! I know it might sounds a bit strange that they are made from chickpeas, but I promise you that you cannot taste it, they just taste like the yummiest indulgent blondies – not like a healthified version at all!! I am obsessed! They have the most perfect gooey moist texture and they are so full of flavour, I seriously cannot recommend these enough! The...

Halloween treat – candy apple slices

Okay here we go lovelies, I am finally ready with another Halloween inspired recipe and this one is probably the easiest one yet! It was actually supposed to be a lot more fancy than it turned out, I had made the most delicious homemade healthified caramel, buuut it turned out to be more of a caramel sauce since it wouldn’t set properly, so this version is made with chocolate only ;) I have shared some (candy apple approved) caramel recipes...

Halloween treat // Coconut sugar caramel popcorn

Hi lovelies, I know I am taking forever with my Halloween recipes and I am so sorry about that, I think I got a little too cocky the other day sharing how I usually avoids colds and getting sick in the fall, because I am down with a bad cold and what feels like a flu on the way. This means that I might not get through all the Halloween recipes that I had planned, but I do have this yummy caramel...

Healthy Halloween treat // Bloody witch fingers

Okay here we go, I finally have another Halloween recipe ready for you guys! I am sorry it took me this long, I haven’t been feeling so well lately, I am not sick, but I just feel out of balance and extremely tired. I am thinking about finally investing in one of those daylight lamps as I am sadly one of those who suffers from SAD (in varying degrees) this time of year. Last year I feel like I dodged...

Easy muesli breakfast buns + the winner of the Bosch giveaway!

Sponsored. This post is made in collaboration with Bosch. These easy to make muesli breakfast buns are the perfect treat for my fellow bread lovers out there, they are so easy to quickly whip together as no rising, double kneading or pre-heating of the oven is necessary! Besides from the fact that they are super easy to make, they are of course also so tasty and full of flavor from the muesli + super filing as well. I love to eat...

Healthy Halloween treats: Mini candy apples, toothy monster snappers & spiders on a log

It is finally here, my very first Halloween recipe post! I know I have previously shared links to other foodbloggers’ Halloween recipes, but I have never actually posted any myself, which is actually kinda strange since I am completely obsessed with Halloween and anything magical or supernatural. This year I am planning on sharing several Halloween recipes though and I have actually already made most of them (some of you might have caught some sneak peeks over on my snapchat: mokai_giraf), eek I am...

Healthy summer treat

These yummy watermelon slices are absolutely perfect if you are looking for a super easy and all healthy summer treat! Simply cut a watermelon into slices as pictured and drizzle it with raw chocolate (recipe below) + your toppings of choice.

To make the raw chocolate simply mix 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil, 1 – 1 1/2 tablespoon raw cacao powder, 1/2 tablespoon acacia honey, pure...

Banana bread with mixed seeds and berries

I had a lot of leftover super ripe bananas this weekend, so I just knew I had to bake another batch of my favorite banana bread muffins + I wanted to experiment with a new banana bread recipe as well. I actually ended up just using my favorite banana bread recipe and then I added mixed seeds and berries as well for some extra flavor and texture, so delicious! I love to serve this as a healthified dessert, but it works great for...

No-bake brownies with peanut butter and pecans

When I first started this blog I absolutely hated peanut butter, I did not understand peoples obsession with it at all and I honestly found it downright repulsing. Haha yeah a lot has definitely changed since then! It all started with me finally trying proper peanut butter, you know the kind where there is only added peanuts and a bit of salt. The other peanut butters I had tried were full of nasties and probably only had very little actual peanuts in...

Toast party

These yummy and colorful pieces of toast got so much attention when I posted a photo over on my snapchat (mokai_giraf) earlier this week that I thought I better share the details with you guys – haha I have never seen so many screenshots before!! The bread is (toasted) wholegrain rye toast and the toppings are: peanut butter and sliced strawberries // a drizzle of acacia honey, sliced banana, cinnamon and chopped dark (70% cacao) chocolate // greek yoghurt, sliced peach, passion fruit...

Healthified banana muffins with peanut butter and raspberries

And what better day to give these babies a try than on a cosy Sunday afternoon, then you will have a little something on hand tomorrow to cure those Monday blues ;) These yummy banana muffins with peanut butter and raspberries are my newest dessert addiction and if you think they look a little familiar, then it is because they are based on my recipe for healthified banana bread...

Healthy banana waffles with strawberry/rhubarb compote

Hi lovelies! I am just quickly stopping by to share the recipe for these beyond delicious (and healthy!) banana waffles with you guys. I am actually on my way out the door to have dinner with my little sister and watch the new X-Men movie, so I will keep it short ;) These yummy waffles are actually based on my favorite banana pancake recipe, but since I am bit lazy when it comes to making pancakes, then I have been...

Healthified milkshakes and ice cream without added sugar // Summer is here!

Sponsored. This post is made in collaboration with WAUW – ice cream without added sugar. So you know how I always complain about the awful Danish weather?

Raw matcha cheesecake with mint and lemon // New & updated recipe

I originally posted this cute little raw matcha cheesecake last year, but I have since re-created it a couple of times and I think this version with mint and lemon is so much better than the original one with kiwi that I just had to update the recipe and share this new version with you guys! I haven’t had the time to take new photos yet, but they will be updated asap as well. I first came up with this...

First day of spring // Frozen yogurt party

Sponsored. This post is made in collaboration with Chuck & Cherry frozen yogurt. Last week my sister and I enjoyed the first proper day of spring under the warming sun in my parents garden, it was amazing to be able to be outside without wearing a jacket and to feel the sun on my face. I chose to go all in on the summer feel and serve us a big colorful platter with beyond delicious frozen yogurts from Chuck &...

Homemade healthified easter eggs

Easter is getting closer, which to me personally (I’m not religious) means that is time to spend some quality time with my family and eat lots of good food and treats! I absolutely LOVE traditional Danish food and all the classic easter candy like chocolate eggs etc. but I also like to add in some of my healthified versions to keep me from going into a total food coma. Haha who am I kidding though, at least one major food...

My favorite 1 minute treat

This beyond delicious treat is one of my new go-to’s when I get sugar cravings and want something that is super quick to make, but still healthy and nourishing. It definitely has quite a high calorie count though, which is why I consider it a treat and not a snack, but unlike many other quick treats these babies are not just empty calories, but actually has nutritionally value. To make these delicious date bites you simply take a medjool date, remove the...

My LA food guide

After spending two whole months (October and November) in Los Angeles last year I got quite familiar with a lot of amazing places to eat and as promised I finally have my post with recommendations ready for you! I have to say that there are sooo many amazing places we didn’t try (I already have such a long list for our next visit) and we tried so many meh (as in not in any way share worthy) places as well. We didn’t...

Quick and healthy tropical breakfast

Hi lovelies, I hope you are doing great and that your year is off to a great start ❤️ Personally I am struggling a bit with getting back into a proper routine, I have been eating too much unhealthy food and treats, I haven’t been working out and my sleep pattern is so messed up! I always let go and just enjoy myself during the Christmas holidays/New years, but then get back on track with my healthy lifestyle in January, it...

Healthified granola bars

Some of the most popular recipes on the blog are for treats and snacks and while I have been sharing quite a few recipes for treats and desserts lately, then I just discovered that it has been ages since I have posted a proper snack recipe, so I think it is about time I change that! I experimented with these healthified granola bars before leaving for LA and I absolutely love how they turned out – they’re so much healthier than those store bought granola...

The best (naughty) brownies with cream cheese // Enjoying life

Sponsored. This post is made in collaboration with Valio – lactose-free dairy products.  As you all know I try to eat healthy most of the time, but also believe that it is important to not be too strict and allow yourself to enjoy some of the less (or not at all) healthy treats every now and then as well. I rarely post those unhealthy treats on here, since my favourite indulgences are candy or chocolate and not homemade baked goods and such...

My go-to “snack attack” bliss balls – only 4 ingredients

These super simple bliss balls are one of my favorite go-to snacks, they are so quick and easy to make and you only need 4 ingredients, all of which are a staple in my kitchen, so I always have the ingredients to make these. I love to experiment with all kinds of superfoods and fancy ingredients, but sometimes I just want something nice and simple that I know will taste amazing and doesn’t take much time to make (plus these also...

Neapolitan ice cream smoothie

This three layered beauty is my take on a healthified and nourishing version of the neapolitan ice-cream. It might be a healthy version, but I promise you that it is still incredibly delicious and is such a great alternative to your regular ice-cream if you want to keep it healthy – haha sometimes you just need the real deal though ;) If you use frozen bananas and strawberries + only add very little milk then you get a thicker nice cream...

Easy peanut butter fudge

I know what you are thinking, yet another treat containing peanut butter?! Haha my obsession is not over yet, but I promise that the next healthified treat I post will not have any peanut butter in it whatsoever – I still have some peanut butter recipes planned for my fellow PB lovers though ;) This peanut butter fudge is beyond easy to make, I mean seriously this is probably the easiest treat I have ever made and it only takes...

Peanut butter nice cream with peanut butter granola

This peanut butter nice cream with peanut butter granola (yes my peanut butter obsession is real) is a new favorite breakfast of mine for those mornings where I want to spoil myself a little extra.

Peanut butter granola

I have recently discovered that I actually like peanut butter after years and years of avoiding it like the plague. The first time I tasted peanut butter it was one of those cheap junk versions with lots of added nasties (and probably not too many peanuts) and I just hated the flavor and texture, it felt like it was growing in my mouth. I still remember the experience and flavor all too well and so I didn’t eat it again for years....

Raw apple nachos

This messy treat is a new favorite of mine, I love the mix of the fresh crisp apples and the more indulgent and heavy chocolate and caramel sauce, such a perfect combo! The best part is that it is actually all healthy – in moderation of course – and completely raw! I know I am yet again abusing food terminology a bit with this one, but “apple nachos” is what I have seen variations of this snack called everywhere else, so...

Tips and tricks to staying healthy while living a busy life

The first post in this series of healthy lunch box ideas were one of the most popular on the blog (you can find it here!), so I thought it was about time to bring you part two as promised!

Berry’licious summer parfait

Berry season is finally here! It is my favorite time of the year and even though I live in the city without a garden I’m fortunate to have a family with a garden full of berries! I am visiting my parents at the moment and I’ve already picked insane amounts of berries – haha it feels so strange to get them for free and in almost infinite amounts when I’m used to paying a fortune for a tiny box in the supermarket!...
