Healthy Blueberry Breakfast Muffins / Zdravi doručak – mafini od borovnice

Guys, these muffins are pretty healthy and don’t taste like crap! I think I’m onto something here.

Blueberries are by far my favorite fruit to add to baked goods. They’re super healthy and don’t end up tart when baked, so you really need only a little bit of sugar to keep the batter tasty. Having these muffins first thing in the morning is like having a cake for breakfast, minus the guilt for stuffing your face with sweets.

Also, if you don’t have oat flour on hand, don’t panic. Just pulse rolled oats in a food processor until finely ground. And don’t worry about chunkier pieces in the flour either, it’s all gonna turn out fine.

Dragi ljudi, ovi mafini su poprilično zdravi, a nemaju okus po kartonu! Mislim da sam na tragu nečega.

Borovnice su mi definitivno najdraže voće za ubaciti u kolače. Zdrave su, a ne zakisele se kada se ispeku, tako da vam treba samo mrvica šećera da smjesa i dalje ostane ukusna. Kada pojedete ovaj mafin odma ujutro osjećati ćete se kao da se za doručak častite sa kolačima, ali bez one krivnje što ste se prejeli tone šećera.

Također, ako nemate zobenog brašna ne očajavajte. Samo propulsirajte zobene pahuljice u multipraktiku u fini prah. I ne brinite ako unutra ostane i krupnijih komadića, sve će se to fino ispeći.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 12 mafina / 2,03 kn po mafinu / 24,32 kn za sve)

Za mafine:

2 jaja (3,00 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

1 šalica kiselog mlijeka (4,00 kn)

2 žlice maslaca, rastopljene (2,00 kn)

4 žlice smeđeg šećera (1,00 kn)

1 šalica zobenog brašna (1,25 kn)

1 šalica integralnog pšeničnog brašna (0,75 kn)

1 žličica praška za pecivo (0,10 kn)

½ žličice sode bikarbone (0,01 kn)

4 žlice mljevenih sjemenki lana (1,00 kn)

1 šalica smrznutih borovnica (10,00 kn)

Dodatno:

Maslac za namastiti kalupe za mafine (1,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C. Ako koristite plehnate kalupe za mafine, malo ih namastite maslacem, ali preskočite ovaj korak za silikonske kalupe. Stavite na stranu. U zdjeli razmutite jaja sa soli, vanilijom i kiselim mlijekom. Umutite unutra rastopljeni maslac i smeđi šećer. Ubacite oba brašna, prašak za pecivo, sodu bikarbonu i lan, pa promiješajte tek toliko da se sve sjedini. Na kraju nježno umiješajte smrznute borovnice i raspodijelite smjesu po pripremljenim kalupima. Pecite 20 minuta, dok se mafini po vrhu lagano ne zahrskaju i ne postanu zlatni. Poslužite ih tople ili na sobnoj temperaturi.

Seedy No-Knead Overnight Oat Bread / Kruh koji se ne mijesi sa sjemenkama i zobenim brašnom

I’m trying to eat more oats, so I’m also figuring out how to incorporate them into everything and anything. One of the good ways is using oat flour in baking. Don’t worry if you can’t find any oat flour, though. Just throw some rolled oats into a food processor and pulse to grind them down. You can also control the texture that way too, and maybe leave it on a bit chunkier side if you are so inclined.

This bread whips up in no time and is so tasty that you really have to give it a try. It also bakes in a preheated oven-safe dish, so the crust is gonna be all crispy and cracked but the inside will remain moist and juicy. For those types of things I use a heavy cast iron lidded pot, but any heavy lidded oven-safe dish will do.

IMGP6487

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 1 loaf / 0.97 EUR)

For the dough:

1 cup oat flour (0.17 EUR)

1 cup whole-wheat flour (0.10 EUR)

3 tbsp ground flax seeds (0.10 EUR)

4 tbsp pumpkin seeds (0.27 EUR)

4 tbsp sunflower seeds (0.27 EUR)

¼ tsp active dry yeast (0.03 EUR)

1 tbsp sugar (0.01 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

1 and ¼ cup warm water (–)

Additional:

Extra flour for dusting (0.01 EUR)

IMGP6433

IMGP6442

IMGP6455

METHOD:

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients. Pour warm water over the mixture and stir with a spoon to form shabby dough. Cover the mixing bowl with cling foil and allow the dough to rise overnight in a warm room.

After the overnight fermentation, dump the dough on a well-floured counter, fold over with a dough scraper a couple of times and shape into a ball. Transfer the dough to a bowl lined with parchment paper, similar in shape and size to the dish you’re going to use for baking. Cover with clean tea towel and leave to rise for a second time for another hour.

Preheat the oven together with a heavy oven-safe lidded pot to 220°C. This is gonna take about 30 minutes, so plan the second dough proofing accordingly. Once the oven and the heavy pot are thoroughly preheated, carefully transfer the dough together with parchment paper into the hot pot and bake covered for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, uncover and bake for additional 10 minutes to get that lovely crust.

Once the bread is done, transfer it to a wire rack and allow it to cool completely before slicing into it.

Ovih se dana trudim jesti više zobenih pahuljica, a tokđer smišljam i načine kako ih ubaciti u razna jela. Jedna super metoda je korištenje zobenog brašna pri pečenju. No, ne brinite ako nigdje ne možete pronaći zobeno brašno. Samo ubacite zobene pahuljice u multipraktik i propulsirajte ih da se smelju. Na taj način također možete kontrolirati i teksturu, pa ako ste tako raspoloženi, imate mogućnost i da dobijete krupnije mljeveno brašno.

Smutiti ovaj kruh je stvarno čas posla, a tako je fini da ga jednostavno morate isprobati. Također, peče se u zagrijanoj posudi pa da će korica biti hrskava i ispucana, a unutrašnjost sočna. Za takve stvari ja uvijek koristim teški lonac sa poklopcem od lijevanog željeza. Naravno, svaka teška posuda sa poklopcem koja smije u pećnicu ovdje funkcionira.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 1 štucu / 7,16 kn)

Za tijesto:

1 šalica zobenog brašna (1,25 kn)

1 šalica integralnog pšeničnog brašna (0,75 kn)

3 žlice mljevenih sjemenki lana (0,75 kn)

4 žlice bučinih sjemenki (2,00 kn)

4 žlice suncokretovih sjemenki (2,00 kn)

¼ žličice suhog kvasca (0,25 kn)

1 žlica šećera (0,05 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

1 i ¼ šalice tople vode (–)

Dodatno:

Brašno za posipanje (0,10 kn)

PRIPREMA:

U velikoj zdjeli pomiješajte sve suhe sastojke. Prelijte vodom i žlicom miješajte dok se ne formira labavo tijesto. Pokrijte zdjelu prijanjajućom folijom i pustite da se tijesto diže preko noći u toploj prostoriji.

Nakon što je tijesto isfermentiralo preko noći, iskrenite ga na dobro pobrašnjenu radnu plohu. Tijesto par puta preklopite strugalicom i oblikujte u loptu. Preselite kuglu tijesta u posudu obloženu papirom za pečenje, a koja veličinom i oblikom približno odgovara posudi u kojoj ćete kasnije peći kruh. Pokrijte posudu čistom krpom i ostavite da se tijesto drugi puta diže još sat vremena.

Zagrijte pećnicu skupa sa teškom posudom s poklopcem na 220°C. Za ovo će vam trebati oko 30 minuta, pa tako gledajte da planirate i drugo dizanje tijesta. Kada su pećnica i posuda zagrijani, pažljivo preselite tijesto skupa sa papirom za pečenje u vruću posudu i pecite poklopljeno 30 minuta. Nakon 30 minuta otklopite i pecite još 10 minuta da se napravi lijepa korica.

Kada je kruh gotov, preselite ga na rešetku i skroz ohladite prije rezanja.

Dok se jagode peku pripremite zobenu kašu. Sve sastojke pomiješajte u loncu i pustite da zavrije. Kuhajte oko 5 minuta, uz stalno miješanje. Poslužite jagode sa zgusnutim sokovima preko tople zobene kaše.

Oatmeal with Roasted Strawberries / Zobena kaša sa pečenim jagodama

Cacao Nutty Oatmeal (vegan) / Zobena kaša sa orasima i kakaom (veganska)

I have a quick an easy recipe for you guys which you can make in advance and have breakfast ready for the whole week. Since we all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, you definitely don’t want to miss out on this one.

imgp5622

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 6 servings / 0.36 EUR per serving / 2.14 EUR for all)

1 ½ cups rolled oats (0.20 EUR)

½ cup ground walnuts (0.40 EUR)

½ cup raisins (0.40 EUR)

3 tbsp ground flax seed (0.10 EUR)

3 tbsp honey (0.40 EUR)

2 tbsp raw cacao powder (0.13 EUR)

1 tsp ground cloves (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract (0.03 EUR)

Pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

5 cups water (–)

6 tbsp crushed toasted hazelnuts (0.40 EUR)

imgp5627

METHOD:

Place all ingredients except toasted hazelnuts in a pot on high heat, while stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low as soon as it reaches boil, keep stirring and cook for about 5 minutes, so the oatmeal cooks through and thickens. It’s going to thicken even more as it cools down, so don’t worry about any remaining liquids.

imgp5626

Distribute oatmeal between containers, sprinkle each portion with toasted hazelnuts and you have a ready-made breakfast for a week. Yay! This reheats wonderfully and I love to have it with a tiny splash of dairy or nut milk, or with yogurt. Now you have zero excuses for skipping breakfast.

If you wanna make an even bigger batch – no problem! Sometimes I’d do that and freeze all extra individual servings. I’d just take a portion out of the freezer the night before and have it ready to grab in the morning.

Imam za vas jedan brzi i jednostavan recept koji možete napraviti unaprijed i imati spreman doručak za cijeli tjedan. S obzirom da svi znamo kako je doručak najbitniji obrok u danu, ovo definitivno ne želite propustiti.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 porcija / 2,66 kn po porciji / 15,96 kn za sve)

1 ½ šalica zobenih pahuljica (1,50 kn)

½ šalice mljevenih oraha (3,00 kn)

½ šalice grožđica (3,00 kn)

3 žlice mljevenih sjemenki lana (0,75 kn)

3 žlice meda (3,00 kn)

2 žlice kakao praha (1,00 kn)

1 žličica mljevenih klinčića (0,50 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

5 šalica vode (–)

6 žlica komadića tostiranih lješnjaka (3,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Stavite sve sastojke osim komadića lješnjaka u lonac na jaku vatru. Pustite da zavrije, uz stalno miješanje. Čim kaša zavrije, smanjite vatru na nisku, nastavite miješati i kuhajte oko 5 minuta dok se sve ne zgusne a zobene pahuljice se ne skuhaju. Kaša će se zgusnuti još više kako se bude hladila, pa ne brinite ako vam se čini da ima previše tekućine.

Raspodijelite zobenu kašu među posudicama i posipajte sa komadićima tostiranih lješnjaka. Sada imate spreman doručak za cijeli tjedan, hura! Ova kaša se super podgrijava, a ja ju najviše volim sa mrvicom kravljeg ili mlijeka od orašastih plodova, ili sa malo jogurta. Sada više nemate izgovor za preskakanje doručka.

Ako hoćete napraviti još veću količinu – nema problema! Neki puta i sama tako napravim pa sav višak smrznem u pojedinačnim porcijama. Večer prije si samo izvadim porciju iz škrinje i ujutro imam spreman doručak za zgrabiti sa sobom.

Ginger and Fig Granola / Granola sa đumbirom i smokvama

It’s my first day at work today after a vacation and when my alarm blared this morning at 6:20 am, it was still dark outside and rain was pouring. One can only assume that this means summer is officially over. Boo.

However, seems like my witchy powers were strong yesterday, because I had enough sense to make a batch of fresh granola for my weekly breakfasts. There was at least some small comfort in dragging myself out of bed this morning.

This granola is crispy on the outside but a bit chewy and soft on the inside. It’s also loaded with millet, which gives it a good dose of crunch. Figs and ginger make a great mix of sweet and spicy. It was just what I needed to fuel up and attack a new work week.

IMGP5306

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields about 8 servings / 0.27 EUR per serving / 2.15 EUR for all)

10 small figs (0.67 EUR)

3 tbsp melted butter (0.40 EUR)

½ tsp dried ginger powder (0.03 EUR)

1 tsp cinnamon powder (0.01 EUR)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract (0.03 EUR)

Pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

1 apple (0.20 EUR)

3 cups rolled oats (0.40 EUR)

4 tbsp ground walnuts (0.27 EUR)

4 tbsp hulled millet (0.13 EUR)

1-2 tbsp water (–)

IMGP5309

METHOD:

Preheat oven to 180°C. Line baking tray with parchment paper and set aside. In a food processor, blitz together figs, melted butter, ginger, cinnamon, vanilla and salt into a smooth and thick paste. Grate the apple with its skin and mix together with fig paste, oats, walnuts and millet. If necessary, add a bit of water to the mixture, just in case it’s too dry and the clumps don’t stick together.

IMGP5310

Spread the granola out on a prepared baking tray without pressing it down and use your hands to keep it clumpy. Bake for 40 minutes, until crispy and golden-brown on the outside, but still a bit moist and juicy on the inside. Allow granola to cool completely on a baking tray, before breaking the bigger chunks down and refrigerating in an airtight container.

Danas mi je prvi dan na poslu nakon godišnjeg i kada mi je alarm jutros zazvonio u 6:20, vani je još bio mrak i lijevala je kiša. Možemo pretpostaviti da to znači da je ljeto gotovo. Bu.

Međutim, čini se da su mi jučer vještičje moći bile jake, jer sam imala dovoljno mudrosti da napravim frišku granolu za tjedne doručke. To je bila barem mala utjeha kada sam se jutros izvukla iz kreveta.

Ova je granola hruskava izvana, ali malo mekša iznutra. Također je nafilana sa prosom, što joj daje dobru dozu hrskavoće. Smokve i đumbir osiguravaju super omjer slatkog i začinjenog. To je bilo baš pravo gorivo za juriš na novi radni tjedan.

SASTOJCI:

(Za oko 8 porcija / 2,01 kn po porciji / 16,06 kn za sve)

10 malih smokava (5,00)

3 žlice rastopljenog maslaca (3,00 kn)

½ žličice đumbira u prahu (0,25 kn)

1 žličica cimeta u prahu (0,10 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

1 jabuka (1,50 kn)

3 šalice zobenih pahuljica (3,00 kn)

4 žlice mljevenih oraha (2,00 kn)

4 žlice prosa (1,00 kn)

1-2 žlice vode (–)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 180°C. Obložite protvan papirom za pečenje i stavite na stranu. U multipraktiku smeljite smokve u glatku i gustu pastu sa rastopljenim maslacem, đumbirom, cimetom, vanilijom i soli. Naribajte jabuku skupa sa korom i pomiješajte sa pastom od smokava, zobenim pahuljicama, orasima i prosom. Po potrebi dodajte mrvicu vode u smjesu, ako je presuha i neće se držati skupa u grudama.

Raširite granolu po pripremljenom protvanu bez dodatnog utiskivanja, a rukama ju formirajte u grudice. Pecite 40 minuta, dok ne bude hruskava i zlatno-smeđa izvana, a još uvijek malo vlažna i sočna iznutra. Pustite da se granola skroz ohladi na protvanu, prije nego što ćete razlomiti veće komade i spremiti ju u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi u frižideru.

IMGP4932

Transfer the batter into prepared baking dish, even out the top with the back of a spoon and bake for 30 minutes, until firmed up and crispy. Allow the oatmeal to cool off in the baking dish for about 5 minutes, before slicing into squares and carefully transferring on a rack to cool off completely and thus firm up a bit. Once completely cool, wrap each individual square in parchment paper or cling foil and refrigerate in airtight container for up to a week, for a quick grab in the morning. To freeze, just add individually wrapped squares to a zip-lock bag and thaw as needed.

U malom lončiću zagrijte skupa maslac (ili kokosovo ulje, ako ga koristite), med, kikiriki maslac i vodu i povremeno miješajte dok se sve ne rastopi. To također možete napraviti i u mikrovalnoj. Zgnječite bananu viljuškom ili gnječilicom za krumpir, dodajte u nju sol i ekstrakt vanilije, pa na kraju umiješajte lan, zobene pahuljice i mješavinu maslaca.

Smjesu izlijte u pripremljeni protvan, poravnajte stražnjom stranom žlice i pecite 30 minuta, dok se ne stisne i ne dobije hrskavu koricu. Pustite da se sve ohladi 5 minuta u protvanu, prije nego što ćete narezati na kocke i pažljivo ih premjestiti na rešetku da se ohlade do kraja i tako stisnu. Kada su kocke skroz hladne, zamojtajte svaku pojedinačno u papir za pečenje ili prozirnu foliju. Čuvajte u hladnjaku u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi do tjedan dana. Ako ćete kocke smrznuti, samo dobro umotajte pojedinačno zamotane kocke u plastičnu vrećicu i odmrznite po potrebi.

Healthy Breakfast Idea – Blueberry Overnight Oats for the Whole Week / Ideje za zdravi doručak – Zobena kaša sa borovnicama za cijeli tjedan

By now even the birds in the trees know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But what does that even mean? For me personally, my breakfast usually sets the pace for the whole day. If I happen to skip it, I’ll probably continue feeling rushed and stressed. If I happen to eat crap like doughnuts first thing in the morning, I’ll most likely continue to eat crap and by evening feel thoroughly miserable and bloated.

So, in order to give my day a good chance to be stellar, I like to be prepared. When everything goes according to plan, I’ll usually make a batch of portable breakfast portions on Sunday, which I can just grab with me on my way to work and dump in the microwave once I get to the office. Six thirty in the morning is definitely way too early for me to eat, so I’d rather come to the office a bit earlier and eat there.

The whole Sunday preparation for the week takes about 10 minutes tops, but in the end makes so much difference for me. The recipe bellow is more like a general guideline, so feel free to adjust it according to personal preferences and what you have at hand.

Without further ado, let’s see what you’ll need. Oh, and just a small note; there are only four portions pictured bellow as I had some other breakfast plans for one day.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 5 servings / 0.76 EUR per serving / 3.81 EUR for all)

5 tsp ground flax seed (0.07 EUR)

METHOD:

Place milk on high heat and bring almost to the point of boiling. While the milk is heating up, divide oats, flax seeds, honey, raisins, walnuts and frozen blueberries between your portions. Then pour hot milk on top, seal the portions and give them a gentle shake so the ingredients can mix. Allow everything to cool down to a room temperature before storing in the fridge.

The oats will soak up majority of the milk and become soft and gooey. You can add a splash more of milk before reheating your healthy awesome breakfast, but it’s going to be fantastic just as it is too.


Sada već i vrapci na grani znaju da je doručak najvažniji obrok u danu. Ali što to zapravo znači? Za mene osobno doručak obično diktira ritam ostatka dana. Ako ga slučajno preskočim, vjerojatno ću se nastaviti osjećati užurbano i pod stresom. Ako je prva stvar koju pojedem ujutro nešto nezdravo tipa krafna, vjerojatno ću nastaviti u sebe trpati smeće i do večeri se osjećati jadno i napuhano.

Pa zato volim biti spremna, kako bi moj dan imao bolju šansu ispasti fantastičan. Kada sve ide po planu, obično u nedjelju složim turu prenosivih doručaka za cijeli tjedan, koje onda samo pokupim sa sobom ujutro kada idem na posao i u uredu ubacim u mikrovalnu. Šest i trideset ujutro je definitivno prerano za mene da išta jedem, pa zato radije dođem u ured malo ranije i jedem tamo.

Nedjeljne pripreme za cijeli tjedan oduzmu mi maksimalno 10 minuta, a u konačnici predstavljaju enormnu razliku. Recept u nastavku više je neki općeniti putokaz i slobodno ga prilagodite vlastitom ukusu i onome što imate pri ruci kod kuće.

Pa bez daljnje priče, da vidimo što će vam sve trebati. I mala napomena; na fotkama su samo četiri porcije jer sam imala neke druge planove za jedan dan.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 5 porcija / 5,70 kn po porciji / 28,50 kn za sve)

4 šalice (1 litra) mlijeka po izboru, životinjsko ili biljno funkcioniraju jednako dobro (6,00 kn)

2 šalice zobenih pahuljica (3,00 kn)

5 žličica mljevenih sjemenki lana (0,50 kn)

5 žličica meda (2,00 kn)

½ šalice grožđica (2,00 kn)

½ šalice grubo nasjeckanih oraha (5,00 kn)

1 šalica smrznutih borovnica (10,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Stavite mlijeko na jaku vatru da skoro pa zakipi. Dok se mlijeko grije, podijelite zobene pahuljice, lan, med, grožđice, orahe i smrznute borovnice između vaših porcija. Onda sve zalijte sa vrućim mlijekom dobro zatvorite porcije i protresite da se svi sastojci promiješaju. Pustite da se sve ohladi na sobnu temperaturu prije nego što ćete odložiti u frižider.

Zobene će pahuljice popiti većinu mlijeka i postati mekane i kremaste. Može dodati još mrvicu mlijeka prije nego što ćete podgrijati doručak, ali biti će izvrstan i ovakav kakav je.
