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, but I felt adventurous and added some extra flavors to this batch ;) I absolutely love how well the flavors from the blueberries and lemon go together + how the lemon perfectly adds a little zing to the pancakes! I couldn’t help myself, so...

Healthified buckwheat pancakes (banana-free)

Hi lovelies! A quick update here from LA, we arrived yesterday afternoon and the apartment we have rented is just the cutest! I absolutely LOVE both the decor, the building and the neighborhood. The decor is very scandinavian and a total pinterest dream (see some sneak peeks over on my snapchat ‘mokai_giraf´), the building has a rooftop pool + gym, yoga room and so much more and the neighborhood is the Art District in Downtown LA where all the best new café’s, restaurants and shops are located – we have both Café Gratitude and Amazebowls right outside our building = YAAASS!! Haha I will probably be going there everyday during our stay! Ah I am so excited to be back in LA...

Pink beet and strawberry pancakes with vanilla “cream” – new and updated recipe

Hi lovelies! I am sorry that I have been completely MIA for the past couple of days, I have simply been too exhausted to blog or pay any attention to social media. As I have mentioned earlier I bought the upstairs apartment in an absolutely gorgeous, but sadly quite neglected house a couple of months ago and by some amazing turn in events the lovely family who owned the downstairs apartment were interested in selling their part of the house, so my sister have just bought the downstairs apartment and we now own the entire house! Eeeek I am so happy and excited!! It feels insane that we own this huge house between the two of us! I know some...

Banana pancakes with berry sauce and fresh blueberries

So all of you have probably heard of the simple two-ingredient banana pancakes right? I have always wanted to give them a try, but for some reason I have just never gotten around to it. This morning I had some extra time before my lectures and decided to give the banana pancakes a try. I added a couple of extra ingredients to make them extra fluffy and filling and they turned out so good! I only very rarely make pancakes, but that’s definitely about to change, these pancakes are so fast and easy to make + they are super healthy and filling, haha pure pancake win! ;D   Recipe – 2 servings: 4 eggs 2 bananas 1 cup oats 1/4...

∼ A summery breakfast favorite ∼ 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. For me these posts are the perfect opportunity to stop and appreciate those little things in life ♥ First I want to share my current favorite breakfast (pictured above), it is the perfect way to use the last rhubarbs and berries from the garden + it is just so unbelievably delicious! I simply top greek yoghurt with homemade compote, almond butter, fresh berries, my favorite almond butter granola (recipe in my cookbook) and bee pollen, so yum! ♥ Second I really want to share this amazing new Facebook group that I have joined,...

Keep your produce fresh up to 3 times longer // Fight food waste + recipes

Sponsored. This post is made in collaboration with Bosch. Evening lovelies! As I shared with you in this post from two weeks ago I have recently upgraded my fridge to a new and much fancier model – this Bosch VitaFresh one to be specific – and since I have had it for little over a month now, then I am finally able to give you guys a an update on whether or not I can recommend it. You can read all about the fridge and its features in my post from last week + see a video tour I filmed for you guys below, but right now I want to talk about the main reason that I chose this exact model. I had a long list of requirements for...

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 making them as waffles instead ever since I bought my waffle iron. Haha waffle irons are such a gift to lazies who enjoys indulgent breakfasts ;) I love to serve these waffles both for breakfast and for dessert, I just...

Breakfast parfait with chia jam, homemade muesli and vanilla skyr

I have shared a couple of different recipes for chia jam on the blog (raw raspberry chia jam, vanilla berry chia jam + my go-to cooked chia jam) and it is definitely one of my favourite super easy recipes to make, it is so delicious and you can pretty much add it to everything! Some of you have emailed about what I like to use my chia jam for as I have only really shown it on it on toasted bread (which is definitely a favorite, haha I looove bread!!), but I actually love to use it in so many different ways. I love to top my healthified pancakes or waffles with, to add it on my skyr/greek yoghurt, I add it to my...

Christmas treats // Gingerbread waffles, candied almonds, candied apples, gingerbread cookies

Sponsored. This post is created in collaboration with Dansukker. Okay so I know I have been sharing a lot of Christmas treats lately, but personally I looove to be surrounded by as much inspiration as I can get for Christmas baking and treats, so I hope you are up for some more! I have both taken on some classics + tried to make something new that I think will be a future classic in my family – and maybe in yours too! I love to try new things as well, instead of only making all the traditional Christmas cookies and sweets. I started by making candied almonds and candy apples, which I think are quite the classics when it comes to Christmas treats – or at least...

Brunch time (w. my favorite healthy recipes) // Togetherness

Sponsored. This post is made in collaboration with Valio – lactose-free dairy products Is there anything better than enjoying good food in good company? It is certainly one of my absolute favourite things to do and I especially love cooking and sharing meals with my friends and family. One of the best ways to enjoy food and each others company are in my opinion over brunch, it’s perfect because it usually consist of a lot of different foods and drinks, so you know that there will be something for everyone and it’s so nice to be able to taste so many different things while spending time with your loved ones. Having so many different small dishes also means that you can sit there and...

Quick breakfast ideas for early mornings

I have gotten quite a few requests for some quick breakfast ideas for those mornings where there isn’t quite time for pancakes or fancy smoothie bowls, so I thought I would share my go-to breakfasts for when I am in a hurry. In the pictures you see my favorite breakfast for time-strapped early mornings, I might have prettied it up for the pictures, but this breakfast bowl of skyr really is as simple as can be and you can always just use whatever toppings you have available. Skyr is an icelandic dairy product that is low in fat and high in protein, but it can be a bit hard to find outside scandinavia, so it can easily be subbed for quark, greek yoghurt or...

Friday Favorites // Berry lovin’

Strawberry/rhubarb compote – recipe here! Hello lovelies, it is time for another `Friday Favorites´ where I share some of my favorite recipes from the blog and this time it will be all about berries! As you might have noticed I am a little berry obsessed and I rarely have breakfast that does not involve those gorgeous little antioxidant bombs. I know many of you are just as berry crazy as I am, so I hope you like the recipes I have put together for you – you can find the links underneath the pictures, enjoy! I hope you will all have a wonderful, berrylicious weekend! ;) Berry smoothie bowl – recipe here! Frozen yoghurt berry bars – recipe here! Pancakes with raspberry fluff and...

Pancake breakfast pizzas

Okay, I might as well just start by saying that no, these do not have much to do with actual pizzas – they are more like a healthy, fruity breakfast version of pizzas, kinda. Haha as you probably have noticed by now I am absolutely awful at abusing food terms, but I just can’t help it – pancake pizzas sounds much better than pancakes topped with a whole bunch of stuff, right?! :D Anyways, I love to eat my pancakes like this since it allows me to just pile on the toppings (in my world there is no such thing at too many toppings!) and I think they look super cute as well, which is always a big plus in my book. I hope you like...

Superfood Sunday // Blueberries

Hello lovelies, as I announced last week `Superfood Sunday´ is back and so it is time for yet another post on one of my favorite superfoods – this week it will be all about blueberries! If the term superfood is new to you I would recommend reading my first post in the series, which focuses on superfoods in general – find it right here. Also make sure to check out my previous posts on chia seeds and maca. Banana pancakes with berry sauce and fresh blueberries Now, this weeks superfood does not need much of an introduction since blueberries definitely are one of the more well-known superfoods, but this does not make it any less amazing though – blueberries are by many nutritionists considered to be...

Berry vanilla chia jam

I cannot recommend this chia jam recipe enough, it only takes 5 minutes to make (needs a couple hours in the fridge though), it is super healthy and it is so tasty and versatile – I love to add it to pretty much everything! You can use whatever berries you like and have available, this time I made it with homegrown black currants, red currants and blueberries from my parents garden and it turned out so good – sweet and with a subtle taste of vanilla, but still a little sour as well. Ingredients: 150 g. berries – I used a mix of red and black currants and blueberries 1 dl water 3 tbsp. chia seeds (buy it right here or here, affiliate links) 1...

Strawberry-rhubarb compote

Hello lovelies, I hope you’re doing well and enjoying the beautiful spring weather? I have exams at the moment so I’m basically supposed to be studying 24/7 – haha and I say supposed to because I am indeed a procrastinator extraordinaire! I’m visiting my parents at the moment and this morning I went out into their garden with a cup of tea to enjoy the sun a little before going in to study. While I was out there these pretty little rhubarbs caught my eye and I just couldn’t help myself I had to pick some and go search for inspiration on how to use them – haha like I said; procrastinator extraordinaire! I ended up making a really simple...

The best kind of mornings

My little sister came to stay with me for a couple of days in the beginning of last week, so on tuesday I decided to skip class, sleep in and make a nice breakfast for us to eat under snuggly blankets while watching our favorite TV shows. I made chocolate pancakes, strawberry/banana/vanilla smoothies and a fruit platter. I love lazy mornings like that < 3 Pancakes: I used the same pancake recipe that I already posted here (click) and then just added some chopped dark chocolate to the pancake batter. Chocolate sauce: My sister was getting a bit impatient (haha, sorry Laui) so instead of making my own I just melted some store bought dark chocolate,  but let me share a recipe...
