HEALTHY PANCAKES FOR BREAKFAST? yes please!

11 Jun

Half the reason you enjoy pancakes is because of the spread and so, we can’t fully call it a pancake if it does’t come with either CHOCOLATE, or BUTTER, or SOMETHING SWEET.

and so, that’s exactly what we can STILL have and not feel bad about it.

 

PANCAKE:

1 egg

1 tablespoon milk

–> whisk the egg and milk together and put in a skillet on low-medium heat.

OPTIONAL: you can add a mashed banana to it, I didn’t and instead sprinkled a handful of raisins, it really didn’t need the bananas to sweeten it more, they were perfect!

SPREAD:

peanutbutter

Guys, this is actually delicious, and will not deprive you from anything, so, hope you enjoy it 🙂

It’s also a perfect excuse to have more eggs, especially for kids who love the idea of pancakes and hate the idea of eggs. Great cheeky way to trick them 😉

healthy non-bake chocolate cookie!

11 Dec

i love cookies. 

cookies are the only reason i hate being healthy. 

especially chocolate-chip cookies. with some tea. in the winter. wearing a warm jumper. 

i have this belief that everything can be transformed to be healthy. with a little tweaking and changing up the ingredients. it might not be exactly the same, but for me, i enjoy it just as much. 

and now, cookies have been added to that healthy category too

and what’s even better is that they are non-bake!! 

i had them for breakfast and made them the night before, left them in the fridge overnight and they were absolutely delicious! 

 

1/2 cup oatmeal

5 tablespoons milk 

1/2 teaspoon hot chocolate powder

1 tablespoon peanut butter 

 

heat the milk and mix it with the chocolate powder as if making hot chocolate. 

mix the oatmeal and the peanutbutter. flatten out on a plate, and put in the fridge. Image

Different ideas to have your weetabix!

17 Oct

once i’v eaten the same thing more than three times in the same week, i can’t have it again even if it was my favorite food in the world. Food is all about new ideas, (usually, the weirder the better) it’s an art. so, it leads me to do some awesome experimentation. i haven’t come up with anything completely inedible and hopefully it will stay that way.

I absolutely adore weetabix, and usually have it with milk, especially when i don’t have enough time to make anything else for breakfast. its quick, easy, nutrition and delicious. but, eventually i got bored so here’s what i had instead.

WEETABIX WITH YOGURT, POMEGRANATE AND APPLE.

2 tablespoons yogurt

1 weetabix

1/2 apple sliced in cubes.

1/2 cup pomegranate seeds.

i think its a perfect breakfast idea as you get your protein, carbohydrates and fruit 😀

 

WEETABIX WITH PEANUT BUTTER – JAM. PEANUT BUTTER – BANANA

if you’re a sucker for peanut butter like me then you can try these bad boys.

cut the weetabix in half (it actually works if you do it slowly without getting all crumbly, shocking!!)

spread peanut butter on each side.

and then spread jam or some bananas on top.

simple as that.

RESIST IT!!

12 Oct

Having a mum who loves to bake is the best and worst thing that could have happened to me. I love baking with her, from brownies to cupcakes to anything really. She really loves following what she calls ‘proper recipes’ to get the perfect results, and i must say she makes delicious desert. But, here’s why it’s also the worst thing, when you have red velvet cupcakes sitting in front of you for a week and then Banoffee pie sitting in the fridge waiting for you to scoff it down and then victoria sponge cupcakes the week after. that’s when it gets a bit out of hand and i really had to work on my self control this past month. I actually did not try any of them and instead made my own recipes to satisfy my craving.

Oats, Peanut butter and Raisins are my absolute favorite healthy substitutes. i can literally mix them randomly and come up with a new recipe that i fall in love with every week.

here’s what i made last night instead of revising for my physics exam.

(sorry but i got tired after 7 chapters, i needed something to energize me)

1 cup of quaker oats (processed into powder)

1 tablespoon of peanut butter (or a bit more if you like)

1 egg

chocolate chips*

milk/almond milk

*you can use raisins instead of the chocolate chips, but i used dark chocolate. it’d been so long since i’d tasted chocolate i actually forgot how good it was. it was my ‘treat of the week’ 

just mix everything together, put in a non-stick pan (you can use an ice-cream scooper to get the same size for each cookie)

and place in oven (190 Celsius) for around 20 minutes.

And they’re ready! 😀
