It’s not a secret that I am a breakfast lover. I can’t start the day without eating something first, before that I can’t leave the house. Even now that I am in quarantine, I start my days the same way I did before. I wake up, have breakfast and coffee in bed before starting my workday around 8 am. Now that I don’t have to drive to the office, I have even more time for breakfast and tried some new recipes in the past weeks.
In the following, I am sharing all (well, most of) the breakfasts I’ve had the past weeks, including the recipes and some more options. All recipes serve up to two people.
Homemade Peanut Butter Granola
I am not the biggest granola fan; I usually only eat it as a topping. But I found a recipe for homemade granola I liked a lot. It’s super easy and quick to make and tastes so good when eating it with oat milk and lots of fresh fruit.
You only need:
(or any other kind of nut)
– Chia Seeds
– Honey or agave syrup
– Peanut Butter
– Coconut Oil
Watch the video to see how to make the peanut butter granola.
Porridge for Breakfast
I have porridge at least three times a week; it’s my go-to breakfast. It’s easy to make, and I love that it keeps me full for quite some time. I usually work with the basic ingredients and add a lot of toppings for different flavors. In the video, you can see how I make it. The ingredients you need for the basic porridge recipe are:
– 80g oats
– 100ml water
– 100ml milk (I used oat milk)
– 1/2 ripe banana
– chia seeds
For the toppings, you can use whatever you have at home. I like to eat my porridge with a lot of fresh fruits; strawberries are my favorites, as well as roasted coconut flakes and peanut butter. You could also top it with granola, nuts, and seeds, apple sauce, or different nut butter.
You can also change the base a little bit. You can make it apple porridge by adding a grated apple or make it chocolate porridge by adding chocolate powder. The options are endless; another reason why I like oatmeal so much.
Smoothie Bowl for a fresh start into the day
My second favorite breakfast is smoothie bowls. When we were in Bali, I had one every single day. I love all the fresh and fruity options and can’t get enough of them. In Germany, we have less fresh and exotic fruit, but still, I have two different smoothie bowls I like to eat. I am showing you how to make one of them in the video and used the following ingredients for it:
– frozen bananas
– frozen blueberries
– frozen raspberries
– peanut butter
– chia seeds
– some water
I usually top my smoothie bowls with granola, cocoa nibs, nuts, roasted coconut flakes, and some more fruit.
Another smoothie bowl I like is the mix of frozen mango, frozen banana, avocado, and peanut butter. Add some chia seeds, nut milk, and cinnamon and mix everything. For the toppings, you can use whatever you feel like eating.
Healthy Banana Bread Recipe
Guys, I don’t know if I ever told you, but I am addicted to Banana Bread! Even before quarantine and before it became trending on Instagram, I made banana bread at least twice a month! I first discovered it when I was in Australia in 2015, and since then, I have been addicted. I already tried a lot of different recipes (and haven’t found THE perfect vegan one yet). The one I want to share with you is the vegan one I like best.
– 250g flour
– 4 tbso chia seed + 12 tbsp water
– 200 g apple sauce
– 3 ripe bananas
– 4 tsp baking powder
I like my banana bread best when it’s toasted and topped with either peanut butter and some coconut flakes or apple sauce. I also tried adding fruits to my banana bread, and that’s a game-changer, guys! Use the recipe I just shared and add some frozen or fresh blueberries and raspberries – you’ll love it!
Vegan Pancakes Recipe
Who doesn’t love pancakes for breakfast? When I was younger, I tried to make pancakes for breakfast every Sunday. Unfortunately, I don’t take the time anymore, but I enjoy eating them now and then. I used to eat banana pancakes very often (made of eggs and bananas), but as I am trying to eat 90% vegan, I had to find another recipe, and this one is my absolute favorite:
All you need is love and the following ingredients:
– 100 g flour
– 100 ml milk (oat, almond…)
– 1 ripe banana
– 1 tsp baking powder
– 2-3 tsp apple sauce (unsweetened)
– a handful blueberries (fresh or frozen)
– cinnamon For the toppings, you can either use coconut yogurt, peanut butter, apple sauce, fresh fruit, nuts, or coconut flakes. Just add whatever you like best and feel like eating! There is no limit to the toppings.
That’s it. These are my favorite breakfast recipes. What do you guys usually eat for breakfast? Let me know in the comments. Also, leave me your feedback when you tried one of the recipes. I would love to know how you like them. xx
