Nutty Muesli

My favorite nutty Muesli recipe is from Yvonne Lemmers (her books were the first I ever purchased on the low carb lifestyle), totally fits into Paleo, Caveman, Low Carb etc. lifestyle.

I made it this week at my mom’s house, just brought all the ingredients and made a batch for her and me in 30 minutes it is literally that easy and can add such a great touch to your quark, yoghurt, fruit or ice cream.

You will need the following ingredients:

  • Assorted unsalted nuts
  • Coconut oil
  • Cinnamon or mixed (cookie) spices
  • The original recipe also adds split flaxseed (2 teaspoons) and stevia but I prefer to add these seperately as I like to use 1 teaspoon per serving.
  • You will also need a good all purpose slicer, I have a fissler multi chopper finecut and it chops through nuts like crazy. (for the dutchies you can buy it here and INTL you can find it here)

100 grams nuts, 2 teaspoon of spice, 1 tablespoon of coconut oil. This is the basic recipe, I just double, triple etc. to make the amount that matches the weight of nuts I have.

Preheat your oven to 150 degrees celsius.

Start chopping up the nuts, don’t throw everything in just a bit at a time and chop until they are a size you would like as a topping. I don’t like big chuncks so I make it quite fine in size although it is hard to get them all exactly the same size as you can see.

After chopping add the spice and stir wel so all the nuts are all nice and brown from the spice.
Melt the coconut au bain marie (I usually put the coconut oil in a sturdy glass, and let it meld in a bowl with boiled water. No need for a the stove as it melts this way in a blink).
Add the melted coconut oil to the nuts and mix it through the nuts with a spoon so all the nuts are all oiled up.

Place some  greaseproof paper on an ovensheet and evenly put the nut mixture on there.
I made a total on 500 grams and put it on one sheet.

In the oven for 15-20 minutes and it will start to smell like cookies … it is literally that easy and so yummy ! Let it cool, place in a (preferably glass) container and start adding it to anything you would like.

Banana Egg Pancakes

My favorite breakfast is known amongst my friends, I eat it quite a bit and if you follow me on instagram you know I do.

I have been asked many a time how I make them, how I get them so cute and round  and what goes into them so here’s my recipe, I didn’t invent this recipe but this is how I like them.

If you work out, there’s a variation you can make to this recipe by adding a scoop of (no flavor, unsweetend) protein powder. It makes them firm and you get you’re scoop of protein in there so win win.

Ingredients:
1 ripe banana
1 egg
1 scoop unflavored unsweetend protein powder (optional for bodybuilders)
1 full dessert spoon (really full) of cinnamon or 1 drop of Young Living Cinnamon Bark Essential oil
coconut oil
immersion blender
honey
Forest fruit; I like blue berries & strawberries

Blend the banana, add the cinnamon, add the optional protein powder, add the egg & blend again.

I was fortunate enough to find this cute pancake pan in a dutch store one day, never seen it again but if I do I will buy them all !! It is my precious, me being a little ocd and my pancakes need to me cute and this helps me with that.

I add coconut to every little circle, about a full teaspoon each.

Add the mix and let it slowly simmer, do NOT flip them over until the top is solid and they can be wiggled from their space or you will have a gooey pancake that tastes the same but just does not look pwetty. I’m all about pwetty, have you sensed that ?!

Add your honey and forest fruit, make your plate pretty with the pancakes and fruit (it makes eating it so much more fun trust me), get some herbal tea and bon apetit !
