Granola Breakfast Cups

I am a total breakfast lover and these Granola Breakfast Cups are so fun to have first thing in the morning! They are super delicious, healthy and super fun to make! I usually whip up a batch the night before so I can add yoghurt and decorate them with fresh fruit the next morning!

Ingredients

Makes 6 cups

  • 1 large banana
  • 1/4th cup agave syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 1/2 cups oats
  • coconut oil for greasing

Filling

  • Coconut yoghurt
  • Raspberries
  • Blueberries

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 180C.
  2. Place the banana in a bowl and mash until smooth.
  3. Then add the oats, agave syrup, vanilla powder and cinnamon and mix well.
  4. Grease the muffin tray with some coconut oil.
  5. Use a tablespoon to scoop in a spoonful of your granola mixture into each form then use your fingers to press the mixture down and up against the sides shaping them into the shape of the muffin tray creating a cup like figure.
  6. Once you have shaped 6 cups place them into the fridge for about 1 hour.
  7. After an hour place them into the oven for 15-20 min.
  8. Once they are slightly golden brown take them out of the oven and allow to cool.
  9. Once they have cooled down you can take your granola cups out of the muffin tray.
  10. At this point if you are making them for the next morning simply store them in an airtight box. Once you are ready to enjoy them use a tablespoon to scoop in some coconut yoghurt into each granola cup and top them off with fresh red fruit!

Healthy Honey Puffs

 

Honey Puffs is something I have always had a weakness for as a child. These days it’s still a treat but due to the amount of sugars it’s not a very healthy treat. So I decided to remake Honey Puff’s my style!

It’s a simple recipe yet so delicious.

They go great simply with milk or with some coconut yoghurt and red fruit!

 

Ingredients

 

  • 150 grams puffed brown rice
  • 4 tablespoons almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons agave syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons chia seeds
  • pinch of salt

 

Method

 

  1. Preheat your oven at 180c.
  2. Place the almond butter, agave syrup, coconut oil, vanilla powder, cinnamon and a pinch of salt in a small pan on a low heat and let the ingredients melt together.
  3. Then add the melted mixture to the puffed brown rice in a big bowl and mix well.
  4. Spread the mixture evenly on a baking tray and place in the oven for about 10 min until they are crispy.
  5. Then add the chia seeds and leave to cool. (Store them in an airtight box)

Pecan Cinnamon Granola

 

This granola is one of my all-time favourites! It’s healthy, delicious, easy to make and if you keep it in an airtight container you’ll be able to enjoy it for more than a week – in my house it doesn’t last that long! 😉

 

Ingredients

Makes one big jar of granola.

  • 300 grams oats
  • 100 grams pecans
  • 3 dates
  • 50 grams shaved almonds
  • 100 grams agave syrup
  • 60 grams liquid coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon hennep seeds
  • 3 tablespoons cinnamon

 

Method

  1. Start by turning on the oven on 180c (fan).
  2. Place the oats, shaved almonds and cinnamon inside a big bowl and mix.
  3. Break the pecans in half or smaller and mix into the bowl.
  4. Get a smaller bowl and put the coconut oil and syrup inside, mix until it forms one thick liquid.
  5. Pour the coconut oil and syrup mix into the large bowl with the other ingredients and mix well until everything sticks together.
  6. Place the mixture into a baking tray and spread it out evenly.
  7. Bake in the oven for about 15-20 min until golden brown, mix everything frequently to make sure the top doesn’t burn.
  8. In the meantime cut the dates into small pieces.
  9. When you’re granola is done take it out of the oven and mix in the chia seeds, hennep seeds and small bits of dates, then leave to cool.

 

There you have it! You’re own home-made granola which isn’t only yummy, but it’s also super healthy and will give you a great boost in the morning. Ready to start the day!

Another day in breakfast Paradise at Kynd Community

 

Another day in paradise, another tropical breakfast in Bali! My favourite part of the day is waking up to a good cup of coffee and a delicious breakfast right here in the tropics. One spot that I love going to and you can’t miss out on is a cafe named Kynd Community.

Kynd Community is a plant-based cafe hidden away in the busy streets of Seminyak. This cafe really shows that plant-based food doesn’t have to be boring at all. Their menu is full of vibrance and their dishes explode with flavours and veggie goodness.

The cafe has a tropical and laid-back vibe. People come strolling in for take-away coffees and a cheeky vegan chocolate chip banana muffin as they walk away with a smile. All kinds of delicious vegan desserts are laid out at the counter and you cant help but stare at them as you walk past. The smell of freshly grounded coffee hangs in the air and laughter fills the room. Its a lovely space to hang out and enjoy some Bali vibes.

 

 

What to get

As you might know I am the biggest coffee freak and thats why I am happy to say that the coffee they serve here is delicious! They make their milks fresh every morning and you can choose between soya, coconut and roasted almond & date milk, my favourite here is the soya.

 

 

Their menu is so vibrant and there are so many delicious options. As everything is plant-based I would say that everything on the menu is as delicious as the other. However, I love getting the ‘Greener Grass’ juice (50k Idr/ 2.50 pounds) for some refreshing green goodness. This juice is extremely fresh and I definitely recommend you to get it on a hot day. Even though it’s a green juice it does also have a sweet taste to it and as there is some ginger in there as well its creates a perfect flavour balance.

Then of course a must have and also one of my favourites is the ‘Green and Grind’ smoothie bowl (69k Idr/ 3.60 pounds). This green goodness consists of banana, mango, spinach, flax, maca, spirulina, coconut water and is topped with home-made granola and tropical fruit. Its absolutely delicious, super refreshing and extremely healthy. Even though this might be a green bowl it does not taste overly green and still has some sweetness to it. What I find different from this bowl compared to others is that when you have finished the toppings you don’t just have the rest of the smoothie to spoon out. Instead at Kynd Community puts the granola on the bottom so with every spoonful you have some crunchy granola.

Tip:

When ordering your smoothie bowl ask if they can write a personalised message for you as a topping on your bowl. Its a little bit of fun that will look great on your Insta 😉

 

 

Have you fallen in love with the home-made granola, their cookies or even their cutlery then no worries! You can purchase them inside and take home some Bali vibes! I definitely recommend to take home some chocolate chip cookie vibes!

 

 

Where to go

They are open everyday from 6am – 5pm and their address is Jl. Petitenget No.12X, Kerobokan Kelod, Kuta Utara, Bali.

 

 

This is the ultimate spot for a delicious breakfast, brunch or lunch with friends – you will even convince that one non-vegan friend that vegan food can be vibrant and delicious! Enjoy!

St Tropez – breakfast with sailors

So there I sat, surrounded by croissants and bread. In the middle of a busy terrace while overlooking the countless sailing boats parked in the harbour. Each one of them branded with a huge sticker and flag saying Rolex. When I turn away from the boats I notice that I am surrounded by guys dressed in white, white sailing costumes.

I understand why all the sailors tend to have breakfast here! I ordered yoghurt with granola which wasn’t only beautiful but also really delicious! Really fresh and crunchy which is perfect for a warm morning! I do have to say, the espresso wasn’t very good. They make it way too watery and bitter. However, others had ordered the cappuccino and did say that they were really good! So when you decide to try out this place order a cappuccino, not an espresso. – But definitely go for the yoghurt and granola!!

Ever year The Rolex Cup is organised in St Tropez, which is a great event! It lasts for a week and is an amazing experience! The boats are all parked in the harbour of St-Tropez which gives an amazing view. When looking over the water you see countless sailing boats just flying over the water.

Anywhere you walk and look over the sea the view is amazing. Especially when the sun goes down and the boats are still on the water. The lights of the towns light up. The mountains become foggy and the sun reflects the light of the sunset. Its crazy.
