Nuts For Seed

After last week’s brownies, we need something healthy. It’s all about balance! This is probably one of my fave recipes. It’s healthy, full of omega’s and multifunctional! You can eat this for breakfast, lunch or snack. It will taste nice with jam, cheese, houmous, butter, avocado and I think basically everything. It’s very filling and a great way to add some good fats to your diet. It’s not hard to make (it’s actually super super easy!), but it does require some time though. The good thing is that, afterwards, you can easily keep it in the freezer. Make sure you slice it up first and then freeze. This way you can take out the slices you want at any time. I’m very curious what you think of it and who will make this. Definitely a must make!


Serves: 10

1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup linseed
1/4 cup chia seed
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup pecans
1/4 cup hazelnuts
1,5 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup wheatgerm
1 tsp salt
2 tbs maple syrup
3 tbs coconut oil
1,5 cup water 

-Mix all the dry ingredients.
-Mix all the wet ingredients and mix them with the dry ingredients.
-Leave it for about 15 min. and then stir again. Make sure all the liquid is soaked up.
-Grease a tin with coconut oil and put the mix in the tin. Press it down and smooth it out.
-Put it in the fridge overnight (or for at least for 3 hrs).
-Preheat the oven at 175C and put the tin in the oven for 30 min.
-Let it cool down for about 30 min and then carefully take the loaf out of the tin.
-Preheat the oven at 200C.
-Put the loaf upside down on a piece of baking paper and put it in the oven for another 10 min.
-If all the side are nice and dry (and slightly crispy) the loaf is finished.
-Let it all cool down before slicing it up (putting it in the fridge for an hour helps to make neater slices).

Easter Puddy

img_7197Yayyy! It’s almost Easter! What does that mean? Easter brunch! Almost every year at Easter I go to Holland for an Easter brunch. Mostly me and my sister make it together, but this year my boyfriend is coming with me and so we will make it together. Of course my sister will make things too and even my brother and his girlfriend are going to make something. It will be so much fun having so much food on the table we all created together. I’m really looking forward to it. Are you going to have an Easter brunch? Last year the Easter recipes were one of the first recipes I posted here. Do you remember the Stuffed Green Eggs and the Hopping Bread? I will definitely make the ‘Hopping Bread’ this year too, tradition! Me and my boyfriend will also make this ‘Easter Puddy’, some healthy pudding in lovely pastel colours. Just in case you’re looking for a nice Easter recipe, this will definitely impress people, with the lovely colours and flowers on top.
