Creamy Vanilla Porridge with Caramelized Apple and Hazelnuts

There is simply no better breakfast in winter than porridge. It’s just so comforting and satisfying, especially with caramelized apple and hazelnuts. On a normal week day, I would have porridge just with some cinnamon and a banana, but on weekends it can be a bit more fancy, like this recipe. Which is still super…

Vegan Chocolate Cake

We are already half way through February at that’s my first post in 2018. Shame on me! I’m currently on holiday in California and finding some spare time to catch up on posts for the blog. If you are already following me on Instagram then you might recognize some of the next recipes, if you…

Cappuccino-Crêpes

I’m a coffee fan and there is nothing better than a big cup of coffee on a weekend in bed. I was planning to bake some crêpes last week and was preparing an espresso at the same time so I thought I experiment a bit and add one espresso into the batter and it worked…

Pumpkin Donuts

I’m basically living on pumpkins in autumn and can’t get enough from pumpkin soup, baked pumpkin….and pumpkin donuts! They have such a unique and delicious taste, you will love them! Unfortunately, you can’t buy pumpkin puree in Germany but its easy to make your own. Just bake pumpkin in the oven until tender and puree…

Chia Chocolate Parfait

Give me chocolate for breakfast and I’m happy for the rest of the day. Sometimes, life is that easy! What I like about the combination of chia pudding and a chocolate banana smoothie are the different textures, I’m not the biggest fan of chia pudding on its own but mixed with a smoothie I’m really…

Plum Parfait with Cinnamon Granola

For me, autumn has arrived as soon as I can find plums in the supermarket. I never pay plums enough attention although they are so versatile. I made this recipe for breakfast but I think it is perfect as a dessert too. You can use any granola you like, I used homemade granola with lots…

Roadtrip in Scotland

Scotland was always on our to do list especially with my boyfriend being half Scottish. Nevertheless it was never our first choice when it came to a summer holiday but this year we had a wedding up in Newcastle and finally decided to go further north and do our long-planned Scotland trip. We just had…

Vegan Dark Chocolate Banana Waffles

Sundays are for slow mornings, coffee and waffles. Although I am really sad summer turned so quickly to autumn and the last week was cold, rainy and grey there are certainly a few good things about autumn too! Soups, cosy Netflix nights and figs of course! Figs and chocolate is a match made in heaven…

Blue Buckwheat Banana Bowl

This is a variation of my raw buckwheat porridge I posted on Instagram a couple of weeks ago. As you might know I love colors and there is nothing better than a colorful breakfast which is an instant mood lifter for me! The blue in those bowls is created by butterfly pea powder. This is…

8VENTURE

I’m very excited to talk about my cooperation with 8VENTURE today! When they contacted me a couple of weeks ago I was first a bit sceptical and thought ‘oh it’s ONE of these powders again’ but after browsing their website I was convinced that their idea and product is unique and I was looking forward…

Easy vegan chocolate pancakes

Long time no see pancakes! Since I’m having a new waffle iron, I hardly make any pancakes because they just take longer and you have to wash up a pan afterwards. The more happy I was when I finally decided to make some! Really liked this easy recipe for vegan chocolate pancakes, and topped with…

Chia Banana Donuts with Blueberry Icing

I’m having a dinner party this evening and next to some savory dishes, I prepared lots of cakes and desserts too. In this recipe, I combined two of my favorite donuts recipes, the chia banana donuts as the ‘base’ and as an icing my favorite blueberry frosting with homemade blueberry juice. So here we are:…
