PB & jelly banana pancakes

PB and jelly banana pancakes PB and jelly banana pancakes When I shared these yummy banana pancakes over on my snapchat I got a surprising amount of screenshots and messages on Instagram asking for the recipe, so I thought I would share it with you guys even though it is actually really very similar to some of my other pancake recipes. I used my favorite banana pancake recipe and then added some extra goodies like hemp seeds and cinnamon + I served it with peanut butter, raspberry chia jam, banana slices and crunchy peanuts – so yum!!

When I first made these I added the peanut butter to the batter (which is why you don’t see it in the photos), but I didn’t feel like I got much bang for the buck flavorwise, so I decided to just serve them with the peanut butter instead of adding it the batter the next I made them and it was definitely much better!

PB and jelly banana pancakes PB and jelly banana pancakes Directions:
Start by adding all the ingredients to a blender and pulse until smooth. Heat a non-stick pan (I prefer to make them on high heat) and add a little coconut oil. When the oil has melted pour a circle of the pancake batter onto the pan and cook the pancake for about a minute or two until little bubbles start forming in the batter, flip it and give it another minute. The cooking time depends on how thick you make your pancakes.

Easy everyday food // My go-to super simple breakfast

Easy everyday food // My go-to super simple breakfast Hi lovelies, I am stopping by to share another post in my “Easy everyday food” series, where I share some of my go-to easy meals that I usually find too simple to share here on the blog. It is these kinds of meals that usually ends up saving the day when I am stressed, tired and strapped for time, so I hope you might find some inspiration in them for those kind of days as well ❤︎

First I want to share my easy little morning routine. I always try to start the day with a big glass of water as well as a cup of warm water with lemon juice, lemon slices, ginger slices and a little bit of raw honey. It is the perfect way to start the day as it helps you re-hydrate, which is incredibly important for your health as your body becomes dehydrated while you sleep and dehydration has such a negative impact on your body and health. Drinking water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach also helps flush out toxins and it can furthermore help stimulate bowel movements as well promoting a regular morning toilet visit ;)

I have written much more about lemon water and it’s benefits right here!

Easy everyday food // My go-to super simple breakfast Easy everyday food // My go-to super simple breakfastI have recently become really fond of eating organic brown rice cakes topped with peanut butter, banana slices, a drizzle of raw honey and a pinch of cinnamon, it is so delicious, healthy and super easy to put together when I am in a hurry. Sometimes I have a handfuld of fresh berries or grapes as well on the side, it all depends on what I have in my fridge.

My obsession with this breakfast combo started a while back when I received a package from Urtekram with organic chia rice cakes and organic chia butter spread (as well as a whole bunch of other goodies) – I of course had to try the two products together and I have been hooked ever since! I am especially fond of their peanut butter with chia seeds, it is incredibly flavorful (some peanut butters are a bit meh flavorwise) and you already know how much I love chia seeds in everything ;)

After posting this spread on snapchat some of you have asked me for recommendations on rice cake brands, I don’t really know much about it to be honest, but I really enjoy the ones from Urtekram and Clearspring organic brown rice cakes without added salt as well, they are cheap and quite thin, which is perfect since I am all about the toppings anyways. I usually just go for the organic brands and I prefer the ones without added salt as well. I hope this helps :)

Banana pancakes with blueberries and lemon

Banana pancakes with blueberries and lemonWhen 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 I went all in with the toppings as well, I mean the toppings are really what it is all about right?! ;) I served the pancakes with a fresh blueberry creme with a hint of lemon, banana slices, fresh blueberries and chopped dark chocolate, so yum!

I have posted this recipe before, but only in Danish, so I thought it was about time that I shared it in English as well. You can still find the recipe in Danish right here!

Banana pancakes with blueberries and lemonIngredients – 2 large servings:
2 bananas, ripe w. brown dots
4 eggs
2 1/2 deciliter (about 1 cup) rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla powder
1/3 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Finely grated zest from 1/2 organic lemon
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 deciliter (about 0.4 cup) blueberries, both fresh or frozen are fine

A little coconut oil to cook the pancakes in (if needed)

Blueberry cream:
1 deciliter (0.4 cup) frozen blueberries
2 deciliter (0.8 cup) skyr naturel or greek yoghurt
½ teaspoon pure vanilla powder
4 tablespoons lemon juice
Finely grated zest from 1/2 organic lemon
Your preferred sweetener to taste – I used a mix of liquid stevia and a little bit of honey

I served the pancakes with banana slices, fresh blueberries and chopped dark 70% chocolate as well.

Banana pancakes with blueberries and lemonDirections:
Simply add all the ingredients (except the blueberries) to a blender and pulse until smooth. Gently fold in the blueberries and set aside the pancake batter to thicken for 10 minutes. While you wait you can make the blueberry cream by simply adding all ingredients to a blender and pulse until smooth.

When the pancake batter is ready heat a non-stick pan – I prefer to make them on high heat – and add a little coconut oil if needed. When the pan is hot pour a circle of the pancake batter onto it, I used about 3 tablespoons per pancake. Cook the pancake for about a minute or two until it is golden brown on the underside – flip it – and give it about a minute on the other side. The cooking time depends on how thick you make your pancakes. I served the pancakes with lots of blueberry cream, banana slices and chopped dark chocolate, so good! Enjoy

Kefir superfood breakfast

Kefir superfood breakfastKefir superfood breakfastSponsored. This post is made in collaboration with Valio – taste which is offered completely lactose-free.

Morning lovelies! I am sorry about the lack of updates last week, my sister and I went on quite an impulsive trip to London to do some Christmas shopping (haha and a lot of regular shopping) and to just enjoy how pretty the city is during Christmas while eating a ton of good food! We definitely went a little overboard at lunch and dinner with 2-3 courses each time (pure bliss), but our breakfasts most days were quick and quite horrible as we just wanted to get out of the apartment and explore London without wasting too much time. As you know breakfast is my favorite meal, so I of course had to make up for the lousy vacay breakfasts as soon as we got home with some big and healthy meals.

One of my favorite meals since we got home is this beyond delicious kefir breakfast spread that I want to share with you guys todays. Kefir is a cultured dairy product that is one of the most probiotic rich products available and it has some quite amazing nutritional and health benefits that I want to go into depth with in another post asap! I have been hearing so much about kefir and its benefits this past year, but it is only just recently that I finally gave it a go myself and I cannot wait to experiment with recipes and different ways to serve it – I read that some of my favorite bloggers even make their own!

For this breakfast spread I used Valio natural kefir and kefir with raspberry flavor, both of them are lactose free, which made it even easier to make breakfast for my lactose intolerant sis and I as I didn’t have to buy separate products for her. I baked superfood breakfast buns with the natural kefir along with breakfast bowls served with raspberry kefir to drink on the side, so yum! You can find the details and recipes below ❤︎

You can find more information about Valio and their lactose-free products on their website and Facebook page.

Kefir bowls and drinks
I served the Valio kefir natural as little breakfast bowls topped with homemade granola, berries, bee pollen and freeze dried raspberry, so delicious! On the side I simply served the Valio kefir with raspberry flavor on its own like kefir is traditionally intended to be consumed, it has the perfect consistency to be served as a delicious breakfast drink, it is so yummy and I am obsessed with how light and bubbly it is!

Kefir superfood breakfast dsc_8595Kefir superfood buns – 12 buns
2 1/2 deciliter Valio kefir natural
3 deciliter water
10 grams of baker’s yeast (block)
2 1/2 teaspoon sea salt flakes
1 tablespoon honey
200 grams wholegrain spelt flour
400 grams wheat flour
30 grams chia seeds
30 grams hemp seeds
30 grams flax seeds

dsc_8576 Kefir superfood breakfast Kefir superfood breakfastDirections:
Simply add the water and baker’s yeast to a bowl (I used the bowl from my Bosch stand mixer to save on the washing) and stir until the yeast has dissolved into the water. Then add the rest of the ingredients except the flour and stir well. Start slowly adding the flour and muesli mix while mixing. I used my Bosch stand mixer to knead the dough, I cannot express how much I love not having to do this by hand!!

Add the dough to a bowl greased with olive oil, cover it and let it rest in the fridge overnight. Divide the dough into 12 buns and place them on a baking tray (or two) lined with baking paper, top them with extra seeds if you’d like and bake them for about 16 minutes at 250 c / 500 f. Make sure to keep an eye on them, the baking time varies depending on the oven. The buns are ready when they turn lightly golden and are baked throughout, I served them warm with lots of raspberry chia jam, enjoy!
