Carrot & Ginger Oven-baked Oatmeal

I have for a while wanted to try to bake my oatmeal in the oven. This morning I finally tried a recipe I put together and it turned out great! Will absolutely do it more often. It resulted in a filling, healthy and tasty carrot, ginger and peanut butter oatmeal.

Carrot & Ginger Oven-baked Oatmeal (1 portion)

  • 1 dl gluten free oats
  • 1 mashed banana
  • 1 carrot, shredded
  • 1/2 zucchini, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder from Alivefoods
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger, shredded
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • some coconut oil for the baking dish

-> Start by turning the oven on 200 degrees Celsius. Mix the mashed banana with the peanut butter in a bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients. Spread some coconut oil in the baking dish before pouring over the dough. Put in the oven for 15-20 minutes. Take out and add your desired toppings. ENJOY!

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

 

Cauliflower Ginger Wraps

Experimented a little with my favorite recipe for wraps today. One of the batches I made ended up being delicious green health boost wraps. It is fun to try new things in the kitchen, especially when succeeding to enhance old recipes to the better!

Cauliflower Ginger Wraps (3 wraps) 

  • 100 g cauliflower
  • 1 dl egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon psyllium husk (fiber husk)
  • 1 small piece of fresh ginger
  • 0.5 tablespoon wheat grass powder from Mother Earth
  • coconut oil (for the tray)

-> Start by putting the oven on 200 degrees C. Mix the cauliflower into small crumbs. Whisk the egg whites hard. Add the cauliflower crumbs and the rest of the ingredients into the hard egg white carefully. Try to keep it as fluffy as possible. Put a baking paper with coconut oil on on a baking tray and spread out the dough. Make it about 1 cm thick, it will cover almost the whole tray. Put in the oven for 10-12 minutes until light brown. Each recipe makes 3 wraps in medium size, see the picture below.

Chocolate Coffee Chia-pudding

A new fantastic breakfast recipe. Quick to make, healthy, and delicious! The perfect breakfast for all you chocolate and coffee lovers out there.

Chocolate Coffee Chia-pudding (1 portion)

Toppings: 

-> Prepare the chia-pudding the evening before. Mix chia seeds, brewed coffee, milk and the cacao powder in a jar with a lid. Put in the fridge over night. Take out in the morning, squeeze out the water from the shredded zucchini and mix in the pudding. I like my breakfast warm so I pour it over to a bowl and put in the microwave for 2 minutes. Take out and add your preferred toppings! 

 This breakfast is 100% paleo! I would also say that it would work just as well as breakfast, as a snack or why not a dessert? It’s pretty delicious! 

Chaga Cinnamon Coffee

Want a easy way to boost your coffee? Something I’ve started with doing almost everyday lately is too add some chaga powder to my coffee for an extra health and energy boost. My chaga powder is from Alivefoods and HERE can you read more about this fantastic superfood!

Traditionally have chaga been used to strengthen people’s immune systems and to enhance the endurance at different activities or generally in your daily life.

Chaga Cinnamon Coffee (1 large cup)

  • 2 portions of coffee powder (of your choice, I always choose organic (EKO) coffee if possible)
  • 0.5 teaspoon chaga powder from Alivefoods
  • 0.5 teaspoon cinnamon

-> Add these ingredients in the filter where you normally usually put the coffee powder. It is okay to add it afterwards in your already brewed coffee, but this way you don’t get any powder in the cup when you drink it. I also always drink my coffee with a little milk. So if you’d like, add milk of your choice (I prefer coconut milk or soy milk).  

  

Homemade Protein Granola

I just have to share the recipe of my homemade protein granola again. I finish almost every day with this amazing food. one or two or three bowls of vanilla quark and yoghurt topped with way too much granola and berries. It’s probably my absolute favorite food to be honest. It’s also so easy to change it up in a bunch of different ways with different flavors!

Homemade Protein Granola (1 batch)

8 dl gluten-free oats

1 dl almonds (chopped if you’d like)

1 dl cashews (chopped if you’d like)

1 dl walnuts (chopped if you’d like)

1 dl sesame seeds

1 dl pumpkin seeds

2 dl sunflower seeds

0.5 dl flax seeds

1 dl coconut flakes

3 tablespoons melted coconut oil or rapeseed oil

1-2 dl raw honey (this makes it really crunchy!)

3-5 tablespoons hot water

Optional: some dried fruit (mango, dates, pineapple, apple chips, gojiberries, mulberries…) to add after it has been in the oven. I usually take mango or pineapple from Mother Earth.

Choose one for flavoring (I have tried them and they are all great): some cinnamon, vanilla protein powder (my favorite), protein powder chocolate flavor, stevia drops of any flavor (I’ve tried chocolate, vanilla, caramel and peanut-butter), protein powder peanut-butter flavor.

-> Start with mixing all the dry ingredients and then add the coconut oil, honey, and water and mix it until it’s all covered. Then I pour it on a baking paper and pour some more honey on top before I put it in the oven for about 30-40 minutes on 200 degrees Celsius. The time might vary a lot though depending on your oven so keep an eye on it and stir like every 12-15 minutes. When you take it out, let it cool down and sprinkle the dried fruit on top before adding it to your yoghurt, smoothie, oatmeal, or just eat as it is! It’s dangerously good!

  


This is my “little” granola jar 😄 bought it at IKEA last week. And I think it’s like 3-4 batches of homemade granola in it on the picture haha 

Creamy Vanilla Almond Oatmeal

I had to experiment a little with my new favorite breakfast creamy coconut vanilla oatmeal and decided to make it with a touch of almond instead of coconut. Resulted in another great large bowl of tasty oatmeal! the coconut one is still my favorite, but this one is very close to being just as good!

Creamy Vanilla Almond Oatmeal (1 portion)

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 dl egg white
  • 2 teaspoons psylliumhusk (fiberhusk)
  • 1 dl unsweetened almond milk
  • 1-1.5 tablespoons almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder from Alivefoods
  • 1/2 dl natural almonds, chopped
  • 1/2 zucchini, shredded

-> Start by melting the coconut oil on low heat in a pot. Take off the heat and add the egg + egg whites, stir! Then add the rest of the ingredients except the zucchini. Put back on the heat on medium and stir frequently until it becomes creamy. When it is creamy enough, add the shredded zucchini and stir until the texture you’d like. Take off the heat and pour over to a large bowl and add your toppings!

    Green Mango Smoothie

    Started this dark and rainy/snowy morning with a real health boost. Decided to make a green drink and it ended up really fresh and tasty! To the smoothie I also had 2 perfectly boiled eggs and a kiwi.

    Green Mango Smoothie (1 glass)

    -> Just mix everything in a blender and pour over to a high glass. I had some bee pollen I sprinkled over afterwards. Delicious! 

     This whole breakfast is paleo-friendly, free from gluten, dairy and added sugar!
