Wraps are great and so incredibly versatile. Whilst examining the contents of my fridge for something palatable, I often resort to wraps. For breakfast, a wrap works fantastically with a banana and some peanut butter and linseeds in it. And I love a wrap with greens, smoked salmon and avocado for lunch or a light dinner.
This is another sister inspired cake. My sister is a really good baker and cook. She mostly makes scrumptious dishes, preferably Italian ones served with plenty of wine but she lately has been on a discovery of healthier alternatives too. So, when she told me about a cheesecake that can be served as a nutritious breakfast, there was no doubt that I had to have a stab at it too.
With the weather being so good over the past few months, it seemed like a an excellent time to try out a refreshing breakfast that everyone can enjoy. And since my kiddie still didn’t get over his obsession with frozen things, ice cream bites seemed like a good idea.
On my word. This is just the most amazing breakfast. It is like having a warm, comforting and delicious pie for breakfast that your granny made. My grandparents actually owned a bakery and whenever we got to sleep over, my sisters and me (the only grandchildren) got spoiled with pies, whipped cream and chocolates for breakfast. This berry crumble reminds of having breakfast at my grandparents, bringing back beautiful memories of the joys and carefree days of childhood.
Granola is a great staple to have in the kitchen. It can be made in advance and makes for a very nutritious breakfast with some natural yogurt or almond/rice milk. Or, for a quick snack, it is perfect to serve with a couple of slices of apple.
On our last trip to the Netherlands, most breakfast places had an acai bowl on their menu, next to the very Dutch cheese sandwiches and “uitsmijters”. As I am not a great drinkable breakfast (smoothie) convert, the acai bowl intrigued me.
I love nut butter. For variety, to spread on loafs or rice cakes, to dip veggies in or to use in recipes. You can make nut butters in endless variations so it never gets boring.
