Sunday brunch

Sunday is my only free day so I usually like to sleep late and make an effort when preparing breakfast (which is usually eaten at a more lunch-like hour). This week I discovered a great new recipe blog, and the pancake recipe is from there. Today's brunch consisted of pancakes with chocolate sauce, organic berries and maple syrup. It was all a little sweet for my usual taste, but hey it's Sunday.

Banana & peanut butter pancakes (for 1)

1 very ripe banana
1 egg
a tiny amount of baking soda
1 tbsp peanut butter
a little salt

1. Put the oven on 200°C.
2. Mash the banana until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients and mix.
3. Pour the dough into 4 pancakes on a baking tray with baking paper.
4. Bake for 15-20 min or until golden brown.

Chocolate sauce

2 tbsp butter or coconut oil
2 tsp honey
2 tbsp raw cacao powder
1/2 tsp bourbon vanilla

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and that's it. Although if the butter is very hard you might want to put the bowl in some hot water for a while to soften it.

Morning Bowl

How I start my mornings nowadays:
1 grated apple
shredded coconut
chia seeds
wheat grass powder
almond milk

Obviously you can mix this up endlessly, but this variation has been a favorite for a while now.
