Strawberry oat crumb bars

Strawberry oat crumble bars

The sun is finally showing itself after months of absence and I get into spring modus right away. All I wanna do is be outside, enjoy the warmth and light – and eat fresh berries. Maybe that’s why I got seduced to buy fresh strawberries at the supermarket today and – of course got disappointed because they are waaay out… Read more →

Honey lemon ginger cookies

Honey lemon ginger cookies

Honey, lemon and ginger is a great combo for when you’re feeling a bit under the weather. Honey to sooth. Lemon to refresh. And ginger to fight off the cold and give that extra zing you need. Since we’re still in the middle of winter – outside the snow refuses to melt – I think we can use that nice combo.… Read more →

kruidnootjes

Kruidnootjes (Dutch holiday spice cookies)

Ok, I don’t know how to translate this into English the right way. But I guess you can call them ‘spice nuts’. Little spice cookies, shaped like little nuts. They are traditionally eaten during the 5 december holiday of Saint-Nicholas. The particularly distinct custom associated with kruidnoten is throwing them in handfuls through the room so children can look for them.… Read more →

maca chia power bar

Maca and chia power bar

Here we’re going to dive a little bit into the superfood madness. Because yes, maca and chia seeds are considered superfood by most. I tried most of the superfoods out there – like wheatgrass, goji berries, bee pollen, hemp seed and spriulina – with varied results. Actually I’m not such a big fan of superfoods, at least not the ones they… Read more →

Matcha bites

Matcha bites (sugarfree)

These dreamy matcha bites have three layers of goodness. A crunchy base, creamy matcha filling and matcha chocolate on top. It can be made raw and vegan, but I prefer the sunflower seeds, oats and shredded coconut toasted. And by using honey the chocolate on top will be a nice bright green. Of course you can make them raw and vegan… Read more →

Coconut macaroons

Vegan coconut macaroons

Crunchy outside and soft in the middle. Full on coconut flavor – with hints of lime and vanilla. That’s what these lovely macaroons are.  They smell so good fresh from the oven! I had to make a second batch for the photo’s because the first batch was finished before I knew it. They were that good. Oh, and they’re vegan and… Read more →

Lime and coconut cookies

Lime and coconut cookies

I just got back from a trip to Portugal. We cruised around the country for a week – had lots of good food, even tried some of their famous pastries. Call me crazy but I missed baking myself. So back home now – and even though today is a hot day (temperature is 28 degrees celsius) – I still want to… Read more →

Pomegranate granolabars

Pomegranate granola bars

  Don’t know what to do with all that fresh pomegranate in your fruit basket?? They are so versatile! Put the seeds in your salad or squeeze them like oranges for some fresh juice. They are also great with dark chocolate for a homemade chocolate bar. Or eat them just like that – they’ll keep for a long time. Pomegranate seeds are… Read more →

Vegan cashew butter cookies with blueberries

Cashew butter cookies with blueberries

I should enclose a warning with these cookies. They are super delicious, but also super filling. When they’re freshly baked, cooled down just enough to have a bite, you’ll immediately want another one and one more. That’s how tasty they are. But with the cashew butter and stuff, also very filling. You might end up feeling like I do right… Read more →
