So waffel day was the other day, inspired of that I felt like having breakfast-waffles. No grains and gluten, no egg and no sugar. This are also totally vegan.
Thx to my grass allergy using chickpea-flour is out of the question. But I figured red lentils kind of works in the same way. Truly it does, I just have not seen it made into a flour yet. Did you know that lentils are generally low in anti-nutrients? That just mean you don’t have to soak them as long as you do with beans and peas. 8 hours should do it. It is a great source of manganese, folate, copper, iron, protein and fiber. They are low in carbs, 20 grams pr 100 grams of cooked lentils. So even on a Keto diet you can easily get away with hooking up with some delish cooked lentils.
What you need for 8 waffles
200 g of dried organic red lentils
1 cup of water
0,5 teaspoon cardamom
0,5 teaspoon ceylon cinnamon
0,3 teaspoon dried ginger
0,5 teaspoon turmeric
a pinch of black pepper
a pinch of salt
Pre-soak the lentils. I just leave them overnight, then the morning I rinse them in cold water. Then add everything to a mixer and blend. Easypeasy. Fry. Eat. Enjoy ❤
This is my new craze ❤ I use it for everything. Breakfast chia bowls, spread on bread or pancakes with berries. Yum.
If you allergic to nuts like me then this is an awesome option to all the nut butters out there. Also by soaking and drying the seeds first you get rid of all the phytonutrients that seeds, nuts and grains contain. It may take a little longer to prepare, but you get to enjoy the full spectrum of nutrients the seeds got to offer with no harm to your gut.
What you do to activate
Soak a pack of your seed of choice for 8 – 24 hours
Rinse the seeds and spread them thin on baking sheets
Dry for 5 – 8 hours on max 80 degrees
When I do this I soke and dry 3-4 types of seeds at the time so I don’t have to do it so often.
Making the butter
Blender with a s-blade
2 cups of your seed of choice
2-3 spoons of organic virgin coconutoil
Put items in blender. Blend for 2-3 min. DONE! Store in a reusable container♡ enjoy as is.
Did you know that a 2,5 cup of sunflower seeds contain about 85 % of your daily intake of vitamin E, and 70 % of your copper requirements? And that 100 grams of sesame seeds contains 97% of your needed calcium, 81 % of iron and 87% of what you need of magnesium in a day? What is not to love about that.
Next I will try to add some raw chocolate powder, a little vanilla and some stevia and see what happens 😱
Also called knekkebrød in Norwegian. Filled with nutricious seeds and other goodies.
This is a hit in our house. It’s glutenfree and I can make sure my boy gets the nutrients he needs to grow.
This recipy is made with presoked and dried seeds, but you can also just soke everything together the night before. The frying time might become a little longer then since the seeds are wet. But by soaking the seeds and grains we get the full nutrient spectrum avalibe by removing the phytic acid. For my family’s senstitive tummys that works great. Happy tummy = happy life ❤
What you need
100 gr of organic glutenfree oatmeal
1sp organic glutenfree steel cut oats
1 spoon organic applecider vinagere
Enough water to cover all the oats
This you mix together the night before. If you do not have presoked seeds then you add your seeds as well, just add more water and it’s all good.
Next morning add
1 cup pumkinseeds
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup sesame seeds
2 sp nutritional yeast
1,5 tsp organic turmeric
0,3 tsp black pepper
Here I also added a teaspoon of dried nettle and dandelion, just for a little extra minerals and detox effect. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees.
Mix it all together and spread half on a baking sheet. Then fry it on hot air for 15 min before cutting the bread into pieces. Continue to fry on normal heat for 15-20 min more.
When done you just break them up and put your favorite topping on.
So finally I am taking the step into the world of food-blogging. I was asking my self why should I blog about food, there are so many doing that already. But I realized that that is not a very empowering way to think, and with that all I do is just limit my self. My aim is to share, inspire and create. Aand It doesn’t hurt to actually write down my food creations (so my dear husband can cook for me 😉 😉 😉 ❤
So after years of tummy troubles and allergies, I have turned into quite a food nerd. Because I believe that eating healthy should be a enjoyable experience. Taste good, smell and look good, and enjoyed with good company (I am not so good with the visual, quite funny since I am a designer right?) Anyway we usually eat pancakes in the weekends, and my son loves it. I always get extra hugs and kisses then. ❤ The issue is that the amount of carbs compared to veggies often gets a little unbalanced, and as a parent you wanna try to get in as many veggies as possible. TAdaa. Lava Pancakes. My son named them. With just one beetroot I turned this meal into something a little healthier and even more festive.
What you need;
400 g oatmeal (glutenfree)
1 spoon steel cut oats (glutenfree)
1 spoon apple cider vinagre
enough water that just covers the oatmeal
I mix this together the night before. To avoid the anti-nutrition in oats, phytic acid, its important to add back the enzyme phytase to the processed oats. I use a spoon of steel cut oats (gluten free), because of my allergies. But you can also use spelt flour or rye if you can handle your gluten. Instead of vinagre you can use sourdough starter or lactic acid.
Next morning I add
1 beetroot cut into pieces
2 dl water
0,5 teaspoon cardamom
1 teaspoon Turmeric
0,3 teaspoon pepper
Coconut oil for frying
This makes approx 14 pancakes
Next morning I mix all of this together with a handheld mixer. I do not peel the beetroot first, my thought is that the more fiber the better. Then I fry the pancakes on a little more than medium heat in raffined coconut oil. I tried with ghee but that didn’t really work out.
My love for turmeric as a painkiller and a ant-inflammatory is real. I use it everywhere I can. Adding pepper helps the absorption of turmeric by 2000 %. And yes it is safe for kids too. 😉
When finished frying add your favorite topping. Mine is a mix of blueberry, raspberry, coconut cream, sunflower seeds and sesame seeds. YUM!
