Homemade Granola

Originally posted on foodbycamilla:
? On busy mornings I usually have yogurt with granola and fresh berries. Homemade granola can be  a healthy and delicious treat. Most of the store- made granola is usually high in sugar and contains unhealthy oils.The advantage of making your own granola is that you know exactly what’s in it and you can add you favourite ingredients. This granola is made with oats, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, flaxseeds and your favourite nuts and fruits. The granola is naturally sweetened with coconut flakes and  honey or maple syrup.  I usually make a large batch granola this to last throughout the week . This recipe yield a large batch of granola ( about 6 cups). Serve with yogurt  or nut milk and fresh fruit or berries. ? ?

Banana Cream Pie Overnight Oats

Originally posted on 28 and Counting…:
I am currently doing a sugar detox, so I can’t indulge in my usual oatmeal for breakfast. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t! Overnight oats are simple to make, healthy, filling, and delicious. What more could you ask for in your breakfast companion on a busy weekday morning? Have you ever tried to make overnight oats? What is your favourite recipe? Banana Cream Pie Overnight Oats There are so many varieties of overnight oats that you can make and I am always creating new recipes. I think a good starting point is banana cream pie in a jar! Ingredients 1 cup of oats (I recommend using these awesome measuring tools) 2/3 cup of vanilla soy milk (you can also use almond milk or regular milk) 1/3 cup of vanilla yogurt (if you don’t like yogurt, add an extra 1/3 cup of milk) 1 ripe banana 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract 2 tablespoons of unsweetened shredded coconut 1 tablespoon of chia seeds 6 walnuts (I put mine in the food…

Sunday Brunch: Brioche french toast with huckleberry compote and Grand Marnier creme

The Brioche French Toast at Sam’s Chowder House in Palo Alto. By Tarryl Jackson The huckleberry compote and the Grand Marnier creme were what drew me in to the brioche french toast at Sam’s Chowder House. I typically stay away from french toast (having too much egg makes me nauseated), but the Sunday brunch entrée at the Palo Alto restaurant was too tempting to pass up. The Home Fries at Sam’s Chowder House in Palo Alto. Luckily, the egg did not dominate the taste of the french toast, which was thick, pillowy soft on the inside, and nicely toasted on the outside. The compote was sweet with a little tartness, and this berry sauce soaked into the toast, making it that much more moist. The Grand Marnier added a subtle citrusy taste to the light and smooth cream. If you’re a fan of french toast, make sure this entrée is on your list. The Sunday brunch menu at Sam’s Chowder House is not extensive, but there are some intriguing items,…

My Obsession Monday: Coconut Bake

Originally posted on One Heart 2 Give:
Warning: I’m about to brag a little about my husband. 😉 My man is pretty hot and he’s been working his butt off weight training all summer. He definitely motivates me to keep going. Gains, yo! Because he’s working on building muscle, he eats a lot of protein and because he loves me, he gets up most mornings and makes us breakfast. I am sooooo lucky! However, there are days when he wants to sleep in or I have extra bananas I need to use so I have an easy breakfast alternative to our usual eggs and bacon (at least for me – he’s allergic to coconut – yes, his life is a little bit darker because of it). Drumroll please. *drumroll* Coconut Flour Breakfast Bake! Photo credit: Evan at thewannabechef.net I found this recipe on Pinterest, of course. It is super easy to make, very quick, nutritious (low carb, gluten free, AND dairy free), and tastes a little like banana cake. FOR BREAKFAST! Seriously, it takes about 5 minutes…

Making Scones

Originally posted on auberginereverie:
So the latest baking escapade in our house has been scones, I love a good scone they’re the perfect little Sunday treat. They feel indulgent and rich but aren’t too heavy that you have to feel that guilty. These babies are easy and quick to make but when they’re fresh out of the oven with some jam they aways hit the spot. We mixed this recipe up a little bit, I try not to consume much dairy, so instead of buttermilk, we made our own buttermilk from almond milk which was super easy and it cut down the dairy content a lot. These still aren’t vegan as we did use butter, we wanted to make our own vegan butter but we couldn’t get our hands on the ingredients that day. That is something were going to do soon though, and if you wanted to make these vegan you could easily swap out the butter for your own choice of vegan butters. We doubled the recipe as we wanted to share some…

Healthy 5-Minute Breakfast

Originally posted on Crafty Coin I am not a morning person. If I don’t have my 8 hours of sleep, good luck trying to get me out of bed. But as much as I like my ZzZzs, I don’t always get as many as I like. Those are the days where I especially need an easy and quick breakfast. If I haven’t made my Overnight Oats the night before, then I turn to my other trusty favorite: Greek yogurt with berries and two hard-boiled eggs. Now, there is a tiny bit of prep that goes into this meal. Read more…
