Last night when I’d been to a birthday party I heard someone say “it’s still so cold and it’s already November” (cold meaning like 15-20° at night) and I thought to myself how weird this sounds as for me it’s normal that November is cold, I associate November with cold weather and not with summer. For me as a big autumn and winter person it’s actually so hard to live in a country where it’s summer during the European winter months, I don’t think it’s something I will ever get used to. Getting reminded everywhere on social media how dark,… Read More »Pumpkin Soup – a piece of autumn.
Happy Sunday! <3 The perfect day for some baking, right? As I’m not that big of a baking fan I usually don’t bake a lot and if I do I often try to be done with it as quickly as possible. However, this time I’d really been in the mood for baking so the other day when I was all alone at home I went into the kitchen at 10pm, turned on some nice music and started making banana bread as I had a bunch of super ripe bananas in the fridge and hadn’t made banana bread in quite a… Read More »Banana Bread with Nuts & Chocolate – extra fluffy.
This Sunday I felt like having some cinnamon apple pancakes. So far I never added cinnamon to my pancakes but somehow I came up with this idea today. As it’s getting colder here in Australia now I just crave all the foods I’d normally have in German autumn and winter. It’s still so strange for me to live in a country where the seasons are working the other way round. For 5 pancakes you will need: 1 apple handful of walnuts 5 tbsp of whole grain flour 150ml plantbased milk maple syrup cinnamon For the dough cut up the apple… Read More »Cinnamon Apple Pancakes
It’s the weekend – time for a yummie chocolatey treat! <3 I usually don’t really create recipes like this one but I thought I’d just give it a go. I know that in general the basic ingredient for raw brownies is dates.. or well, at least I think so. Correct me if I’m wrong. So I played it safe and didn’t go crazy with this recipe. I never use complicated recipes myself as I’m way too lazy for those, so why would I make something complicated myself anyway? You will need.. Brownies 300g dates 200g grounded almonds 3 tbsp cacao… Read More »Raw Almond Chocolate Brownies

Okay, to be honest.. I don’t even like Halloween. However, I truly believe pumpkin smoothie bowls make a perfect Halloween breakfast. I mean, what else would you wanna eat on Halloween other than pumpkin? See? And since I’ve been obsessed with my pumpkin smoothie bowls this whole month of October, I thought I might as well share how I make it with you.

Anyway, here’s how to make it: You will need: 2-3… Read More »Halloween Breakfast – Pumpkin Smoothie Bowl

This is a post for all my fellow chocolate lovers out there.. A while ago I started replacing my morning coffee or tea with hot chocolate on some days. So I thought I’d share my recipe with you as it’s so easy and delicious. Most people immediately think of the unhealthy chocolate flavoured powder for milk drinks when they hear „hot chocolate“. This is not what I mean when I say hot chocolate, I’m talking about the „real deal“ made with cacao powder or even cacao beans which you ground yourself first. This kind of hot chocolate is actually pretty… Read More »Hot Chocolate – Vegan & Healthy
