Vanilla Protein Oatless Oatmeal

I have posted this recipe before, but since I got some questions about it I’ll post it again so it will be easier to find for you.

It’s one of my favorite breakfasts and it’s easy to vary the flavor.

Vanilla Protein Oatless Oatmeal (1 portion)

  • 1 large banana
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 2-3 dl coconut milk (or any milk of your choice) 
  • 1 tablespoon flax seeds 
  • 1 egg (or about 3/4 dl egg whites)
  • 1 teaspoon psyllium husk 
  • 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder from Fitnessbutiken 
  • 1/2 zucchini, shredded 
  • (Optional: 2 tablespoons peanutbutter) 

-> Start by putting the chia seeds and 1.5 dl milk in a pot. Make sure all the chia seeds are covered. Let stand for a few minutes. Then mash the banana into the mixture and add all the other ingredients except the zucchini and protein powder. Turn on the stove on medium heat and stir frequently. When it becomes thick add the shredded zucchini and stir. (If you want to add peanutbutter into your oatmeal add it here) then take it off the stove and add the protein powder. Stir well. Pour over to a bowl and add your toppings! 

My toppings today:

  • Lots of creamy peanutbutter 
  • Large blueberries 
  • Kiwi
  • Mulberries 


This oatmeal is 100% gluten free, depending on the protein powder it can also easily be dairy free. It’s high protein, low carb and lchf.  

Chocolate Nana Ice Cream

There are so many easy, healthy and delicious ways of making “nice cream” or “nana ice cream” or whatever you’d like to call it! A healthy and fresh alternative to ice cream/sorbet made of frozen banana. Such a smart idea! Here is one recipe with chocolate flavor, if you search for “nice cream” here in my blog you will find other flavors and alternatives! 

Chocolate Nana Ice Cream (1 portion)

  • 2 frozen bananas (peeled and chopped before frozen)
  • 0.5 tablespoons  carob powder
  • 0.5 tablespoons  raw cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon coconut milk (or water)

-> Start by mixing the frozen bananas with the water/coconut milk lightly with a stick blender. Add the carob powder and cacao powder and mix until creamy and it looks like sorbet. Pour over to a bowl and add toppings! 

My toppings today:

  • Peanutbutter (it’s a must!)
  • Raspberries
  • Cacao nibs 


This nana ice cream is paleo-friendly (switch out the peanutbutter to any other but butter to make the whole portion paleo). It’s also 100% free from gluten, dairy and added sugar. It’s also vegan and lowfodmap! 

Green Pinapple Smoothie 

A successful green smoothie recipe! Maybe to start your day with for an extra nutrition and health boost? Or as a mid-day snack? Somehow I feel like green smoothies keeps me full and satisfied longer than other smoothies, someone else who agrees? 

Green Pinapple Smoothie (1 glass)

  • 1 large banana
  • 1 handful of fresh spinach
  • 2 dl fresh pineapple (probably works with frozen as well)
  • A small piece fresh ginger 
  • Juice from half a lime
  • 1 teaspoon chlorella powder from Alivefoods 
  • 2 dl coconut milk 
  • Bee pollen for topping

-> Put all the ingredients except the bee pollen in a mixer until smooth. Pour over to a glass and sprinkle over some bee pollen.


This smoothie is 100% free from gluten, dairy and added sugar. It’s also paleo-friendly. 

Coconut Buckwheat Oatmeal

As you readers probably have discovered by now I’m a big fan of almost anything with coconut flavor. Especially the combination of coconut and vanilla! So here is another amazing high protein oatmeal recipe with the same lovely combination of flavors. Enjoy!

Coconut Buckwheat Oatmeal (1 portion)

-> Start the night before (or at least 4-5 hours ahead) to drain the buckwheat through hot water. Then fill up a jar with the drained buckwheat together with 3 dl cold water and put a lid on. Put in the fridge over night (or for 4-5 hours). Then take it out from the fridge and put in a pot, bring to boil on medium heat, when it becomes creamy, add the shredded zucchini and stir well until all mixed. Take off the heat and add the protein powder, stir well. Pour over to a bowl and add your toppings!

My delicious toppings today: 


This breakfast is 100% free from gluten and added sugar. Then depending on what protein powder you use it can also be dairy free! 

     

     

    Healthy Bread Buns

    Experimented a little in the kitchen today. I bought home a lot of coconut flour recently so wanted use some of that. Coconut flour is a little more difficult to bake with compared to almond flour I believe, but I came up with a really great recipe! Not at all dry like some gluten free bread can be, full of flavor and easy to make! I’m actually not a big fan of bread at all but this one I could eat lots of! You have to try it! The original recipe comes from Nillaskitchen.com, but I changed it some and it needed up delicious! 

    Bread Buns (6 buns)

    • 1.5 dl sunflower seeds
    • 1 dl flax seeds (I used crushed flax seeds)
    • 2 tablespoons psyllium husk (fiberhusk in Swedish)
    • 4.5 dl cold water
    • 1 dl coconut flour
    • 0.5 dl pofiber (Don’t know the English word for this)
    • 1 tablespoon baking powder
    • 0.5 teaspoon sea salt
    • Some gojiberries from Alivefoods

    -> This recipe is in two stages. Start with mixing the sunflower seeds, flax seeds, 1 tablespoon of the psyllium husk and cold water in a bowl. Let stand for 30-60 minutes. For stage two: turn the oven on 200 degrees Celsius and mix the rest of the ingredients in a separate bowl. Carefully add the dry mixture to the other one, make sure it mixes well. Form 6 buns and put on baking paper on a baking tray. Put in the oven for 25-30 minutes depending on your oven. They should look light brown and not be sticky if you cut them. Take them out from the oven and let them cool down completely before cutting them in half. ENJOY!

    Some examples I like of healthy and delicious toppings for these bread buns: 

    • Peanutbutter + sliced banana
    • Boiled eggs + herb salt
    • Mashed avocado + thin sliced turkey + herb salt
    • Fried egg + sliced avocado
    • Any nutbutter + cottage cheese
    • Coconut butter 
    • Sliced pear + roasted walnuts + honey


    This bread is 100% free from gluten, dairy and added sugar. It’s also low fodmap. 

      Black Currants Smoothie

      Started my Sunday with a new delicious smoothie filled with nutrients! Smoothies based on bananas are very nice to my stomach and a great start of the day. On the side I had two boiled eggs and a green kiwi to make my breakfast complete.

      Black Currant Smoothie (1 high glass)

      -> Just put everything in a blender and mix until smooth. Pour over to a high glass and sprinkle some bee pollen on top. Refreshing and delicious!

      Homemade Protein Tiramisu Granola

      This is my daily addiction. I LOVE my homemade granola! It started many many years ago with my mum following a recipe she found in a magazine, and if you search for “homemade granola” and click on the oldest post here in my blog I’m sure you will find it.

      Today I’m doing this granola so often (probably 3-4 batches a week, no kidding!), so I don’t really measure the ingredients anymore, I go on feeling and with what I have at home. One ingredient I have add in the latest year is protein powder, both to add more protein and to add a good flavor. That way it is easy to switch up the flavor for the granola. I usually use my vanilla protein powder from Fitnessguru. But today I tried with tiramisu flavor and it ended up really well! Taste almost like freshly baked cookies!

      I add this granola when I eat quark/yoghurt, with milk, on smoothies, on oatmeal, as toppings on ice cream or any dessert or as a snack just as it is. It is just delicious in so many ways! 

      Right now you can get 100 SEK off if you purchase products (they have both supplements and really great and cool workout clothes and equipment!) for at least 900 SEK when using the promo code “blogg-72H5B-fb”. For example I bought my favorite workout tights from ICANIWILL there and most of my protein powders and other supplements!

      Since I don’t measure the ingredients anymore, I’m guessing a little on the recipe. But if the “dough” ends up too wet, add more oats, and if its too dry add more honey and water.

      Homemade Tiramisu Protein Granola (1 batch)

      • 8 dl gluten free oats
      • 2 dl sunflower seeds
      • 1 dl pumpkin seeds
      • 1 dl coconut flakes
      • 0.5 dl sesame seeds
      • 0.5 dl flax seeds
      • 3 dl mixed nuts (I usually use a mix of walnuts, cashews, hazelnuts, almonds and brazil nuts)
      • 1-1.5 scoops protein powder tiramisu flavor from BioTech USA from Fitnessbutiken
      • 6 tablespoons raw honey (I probably use more because I love the crunches and sweetness)
      • 0.5-1 dl water
      • 0.5-1 dl rapeseed oil or coconut oil

      -> Turn the oven on 200 degrees Celsius. Put a baking paper on a baking dish and add all the dry ingredients. Then add the rapeseed oil/coconut oil, the honey and the water. Bland it on the baking dish so it gets evenly wet and well mixed. Put in the oven for 15 minutes, then stir so it doesn’t burn, but back in for 12-15 more minutes and then stir again. Here you decide if you want to put it in a little longer or if it is done. It should be light brown and not wet anymore. I usually turn the heat of and let it stay in the oven for a while. I would guess my total “cooking time” in the oven varies from 30-40 minutes.

      Take out, let it cool down and ENJOY!


      This granola is 100% gluten free and free from added sugar. Do you use a protein powder free from lactose or flavor the granola with for example vanilla powder, cinnamon or cardamom is also dairy free and paleo- friendly!
