My 30 (or more!) days challenges

Breakfast – Day 56

I don’t make a lot of breakfast posts these days, as my breakfasts have become somewhat routine. But today I made something very special, which turned out absolutely delicious – so I definitely have to share this! These, my friends, are pumpkin and blueberry protein pancakes.

This is how I make the pancakes: I mix 3 tablespoons Greek yoghurt, 3 tablespoons coconut milk, 1 scoop vanilla-flavoured protein powder, 3 tablespoons pumpkin puree (I made it beforehand, baking a small pumpkin and blending the flesh), 1 egg, 2 tablespoons quinoa flour, 1 tablespoon coconut flour, 1/4 teaspoon baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (or a mixture of ground cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves and allspice) in the blender. Then I take a handful of blueberries, cut them into halves and mix into the batter. Finally I cook the pancakes on a pre-heated pan, buttered with coconut oil.

In the meantime I make the sauce in the blender, using 2 tablespoons coconut milk, 1 tablespoon peanut butter, 1 tablespoon cocoa powder and 1 tablespoon dulce de leche.

My pancakes are served with the sauce, some figs and pecans and a cup of unsweetened cappuccino.

Breakfast – Day 55

I am getting more and more addicted to bowl cakes, since they are so simple to make and so delicious. And of course I am trying to keep mine as healthy as possible. So, ladies and gentlemen, welcome the middle-melting chocolate protein bowl cake!

As usual, I start with buttering a bowl with coconut oil, and then mix the following in that bowl: 3 tablespoons Greek yoghurt, 3 tablespoons coconut milk, 1 egg, 1 scoop vanilla protein powder, 1 tablespoon coconut flour, 1 tablespoon quinoa flour, 1 tablespoon cocoa powder, 1/4 teaspoon baking powder. Then I sink two squares of 90% dark chocolate into the mixture and put it in the microwave. My cake takes 5-6 minutes in total (in 1-minute increments).

Then I take the cake out of the bowl. The molten chocolate has come out on the surface, and I mix it with a teaspoon of dulce de leche and spread this mixture over the surface. Some fruits and berries (namely figs, raspberries and blueberries) and a cup of cappuccino accompany my bowl cake, which turned out delicious – and quite beautiful finally!
