Banana Pancakes

We had a little tower of banana pancakes this morning to get ready for the Midsummer festivities. And no Midsummer without strawberries, of course!

1 dl rye flakes
2 dl oat milk
3 ripe bananas
1 dl plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp oil, canola or coconut
1 tsp cinnamon
0,5 tsp salt
0,5 tsp vinegar

For serving
strawberries
mango
blueberries
walnuts
1 tsp sugar

Pour the oat milk over the rye flakes in a bowl and leave to soak in the fridge overnight, or in room temperature for at least 15 minutes.
Add all the ingredients including soaked rye to a mixer. Mix well to a smooth batter.
Toast the walnuts in a dry pan with a pinch of cinnamon and 1 tsp sugar.
Fry small pancakes in oil on medium heat until golden. Serve with fruit, berries and toasted walnuts.

Rye porridge

Let’s start this week! I haven’t had porridge for breakfast for a while, but today I wanted something filling. I really had to learn to like porridge, and oats doesn’t do it for me. But cooked with rye flakes is a whole different story. I use 1,75 dl water for 1 dl of rye flakes and cook it for 2,5-3 minutes. It needs a bit of salt and nice toppings, like these fresh strawberries and peach, oat milk and a big dollop of crunchy peanut butter.

Dessert

Strawberries and ice cream

Why make it complicated when you can keep it simple? Fresh strawberries and vegan ice cream for dessert on a Saturday night. Dream team! Plain vanilla is of course a classic, but if you can get your hands on Oatly’s “Really posh salty caramel and hazelnut” you should try it. It’s heavenly. I repeat – HEAVENLY!

Fruit For Breakfast

Today it’s absolutely pouring down here in Sweden, and summer has never felt further away. Right now I’m just dreaming myself back to our time in Australia, with sun and heat and clear skies, where a fruit platter with dark roasted peanut butter for dipping was our standard breakfast. Those were the days!
