French Toast

A versatile and delicious vegan French toast based on garbanzo bean flour. This has basically become our go-to weekend breakfast when we feel like treating ourselves. Since the toast itself is not sweet, it goes so well with both sweet and savory toppings. So enjoy with fruits, maple syrup drizzle, jams or go with your favorite plant cheese. You can also keep the leftovers (if any) in the fridge and warm up later, it will still be good.

Oatmeal Pancakes

Two of my favorite breakfast options merge into a morning bliss with this recipe that incorporates oatmeal into pancakes. And using a package of Modern Oats Vermont maple oatmeal just makes it all the more simpler, quicker and flavorful. I love that it adds pumpkin seed, sunflower seeds and chia seeds which up the protein content and introduces a much needed texture into the fluffy pancakes.

While I always promote home cooking, I am totally for wholesome, high quality products that make like in the kitchen easier. Modern oats is definitely one of them. Having their oatmeals at the ready have been a lifesaver in many occasions, on days when I had to have a rush start on my day but still needed my warming breakfast, and of course when I am on travel. Checkout their line of oatmeals here, I am sure you will find several flavor combinations that will appeal to you. The recipe below uses the Vermont maple flavor, but feel free to swap with another or put together your own ingredients. This versatile pancake will turn out great. The recipe is below:

Overnight Mocha Chia

Overnight Mocha Chia

Breakfast idea: what if I combined my morning coffee fix, dessert craving, and the need for protein, fiber, omega-3 and a ton of other nutrients into one gorgeous cup that was prepped the night before? Well, it doesn’t have to be the night before, 4 hours will do in case you want to have it for dessert in the evening too 🙂 Here is the recipe:

Chocolate Pecan Pie Granola

Dreamy Chocolate Pecan Pie Granola

The dreamy granola (vegan, gf) is updated and it is now better than ever, in more than one aspect! And it is now available on our brand new dreamy.market

The original recipe, a.k.a the Chocolate Pecan Maple Granola was really really good. No real qualms with that. But we wanted do improve the texture and clustering that is so traditional for granola, so that it can be easier enjoyed as a stand-alone snack when you need to. After a few slight flavor tweaks as well, we are now aptly calling it the “Chocolate Pecan Pie Granola”, because it is that awesome.

Marinated Tofu Feta Cheese

Marinated Tofu Feta Cheese
This is not intended to be a convincing feta imitation. It is intended to be a nutritious and delicious replacement. It will remind you of feta and it functions like feta. But it is a little different and refreshing, it nicely brings out the flavors of the herbs and the olive oil. An excellent breakfast option to be wrapped in a warm tortilla, if you will. Here is the recipe:

Peanut Butter Pancakes

Vegan Peanut Butter Pancakes

Here is a delicious pancake recipe just before the weekend. All vegan, and innocent. It hardly needs any introduction.

The thing about pancakes is that they are very easy to make and they are super versatile. You can easily swap ingredients with other comparable ones and it will work out. You don’t ever need a pancake mix.

This one uses whole wheat flour (I also made them before using gluten free buckwheat flour here). And it incorporates peanut butter! It is worth mentioning that the peanut butter I used was unsalted and unsweetened. Besides the wonderful peanut butter flavor, it adds a little protein component.
