Breakfast

Vanilla Crepes with Cinnamon Butter!

Svenska här

I went to IKEA yesterday and bought a really cool lamp that opens and closes!  I came home late and was to tired to write about my food that day.

And also, I forgot to buy eggs, that is not a good thing during an eggfast 🙂 I had 2 raw eggs and 3 boiled ones in the fridge.

For dinner I just deviled 2 of the boiled eggs and that made a fullfilling dinner. Can’t remember what else I ate yesterday except for my usual lunch omelette.

Today I used the  2 raw eggs to make today’s lunch omelette. I wanted to bring the last cooked egg to work as “emergency food” wich left me with no eggs for breakfast.

So I made bullet tea, 1 + 1/4 cup of hot tea mixed with 2 tblsp cocnut oil, mixed with a hand mixer.

For dinner I made vanilla crepes with cinnamonbutter, sooo good! And they looked just like regular crepes! The only thing was that they broke a bit when flipping but I can live with that.

This is definitively a new weekend breakfast dish even after eggfast!

I was inspired by this recipie but changed the spice and made a smaller batch. This is my version:

Vanilla crepes with cinnamonbutter, 1 serving

Crepes

  • 3 eggs
  •  5 ½ oz (or 0,75 dl) philadelphia cheese
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla powder
  • butter or ghee for frying

Cinnamon butter

  • 1 heaped tsp cinnamon
  • barely 1 tsp sweetener, I use birch xylitol
  • 2 tblsp softened butter

Whisk eggs, cheese and vanilla powder until totally combined. I used my mixer. Let the batter rest for 5 minutes.

Mix cinnamon and sweetener. Then blend the cinnamon mixture with the softened butter, but save a little of the cinnamon mixture to sprinkle ontop of the crepes.

Let a dollop of butter or ghee melt in a frying pan on high heat. Pour a fairly thin layer of batter in pan. Fry until batter is set ontop, flip and fry a bit longer. Place on a plate and continue the same way until all batter is used.

I got 2 large crepes and a baby but I thin my first one was too thick.

Spread your cinnamonbutt er on the creps and roll them. Sprinkle with reserved cinnamon mixture. Done!

 

Roasted Nut Butter with Seeds!

Svenska här

I use nut butter every day for my breakfast egg chai and I used to make plain hazelnut butter. But then I read somewhere that you can mix nuts and seeds and toast them lightly before making the nut butter. It made a huge difference, so, so tasty!

Hot coconut egg cocoa!

Svenska här

So, after making these pancakes I had some cocnut water (the water left in the can after taking out the coconut cream in a can of coconut milk), and it got me thinking.

Could I transform my egg chai into a tropical version of hot cocoa?

The answer is YES! I made a large cup filled with hot, smooth, thick, luscious, tropical hot cocoa with a thick frooth that kept me full and satisfied from breakfast to lunch!

Nut butter

Svenska här

Do you know how easy it is to make your own nut butter? It’s a piece of cake! Pour some nuts into your food processor. Hit the power switch. Wait. Wait some more, And more. Done!

There are two difficulties to this process. 1: To have the power to beliveve the nuts will actually turn into butter. 2: Have the patience to wait for as long as it takes.

Egg chai

Svenska här

This is one of those things you need to try before you discard. When I first heard of this I found the idea of eggs in tea horrid. But I tried and now this is one of y favourite breakfasts.

You make egg chai in less than 2 minutes and drink it even faster so it’s perfect for a busy morning, and you won’t be hungry before lunch.

Really good seed crackers

Svenska här

 

Since I started eating low carb I allways keep a jar of these seed crackers in my pantry. They are glutenfree and low carb but most of all they are totally delicious. They work equally well with some butter and cheese as paired with fancy cheeses on an after dinner cheese tray.
