Breakfasts #2

More breakfasts! As I told you in my last Breakfast post, I do not like bread. So often I have breakfast with some porridge or yoghurt. So today I am going to share some of my favorite spoonable breakfasts. Because what is more comforting than crawling back into bed or on the couch in the morning with a bowl of deliciousness?

First up the one I have been eating the past week, because cherries came into season and I absolutely love cherries!


So basically I just halve and pit about a cup of cherries (200- 250 grams) and add half a cup (6 tablespoons) of soy yoghurt and a handful of granola. I got this grain free granola in my Healthbox a few weeks ago, on it’s own it is not too special but in this breakfast it is a winner.


Next is a warm one. I actually ate this when it was 30ΒΊC outside and it was amazing.

You will need:

  • 1/3 of a cup of oats
  • 200mL of milk (I use unsweetened soy milk)
  • teaspoon of chia seeds
  • 1 apple
  • 1/4 cup of raisins
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • splash of vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon of sunflower seeds

Let’s get started!

  1. Put your oats, milk, chia seeds, cinnamon and vanilla in a small pot. Bring to a soft simmer and cook until the oats are soft.
  2. In the meanwhile, soak your raisins in lukewarm water and cut your apple into cubes.
  3. Put it all together in a bowl, top off with your sunflower seeds and enjoy!

You can also make this as Overnight Oats if you like. Put your oats, milk, chia seeds, cinnamon and vanilla in a jar or a bowl. Cover and leave in the fridge overnight. Top it off with your sunflower seeds in the morning and you are ready to go.



The last one is more a product suggestion. I fell in love with the N’Oats Blackberry- Chia by MyMuesli. It only lasted me a week, because as soon as I bought it I ate it every single morning! I had it as Overnight Oats and sometimes I added some extra frozen blueberries or something, but it is absolutely amazing as it is.

What is your favorite spoonable breakfast? Have you ever had Overnight Oats before?


P.S. If you make one of the dishes, you can post them on instagram and tag me (@oneservingblog). I would love to see your creations!

French Toast

French toast is something I don’t have often. Mostly because I forget about it, which obviously is a shame because it is amazing. Such a clever way of using stale bread.

This time our freezer broke and we had lots and lots of bread all of the sudden, haha.
Here is the recipe:

  • 1 slice of (stale) bread, or 2 if you are really hungry
  • 1 egg
  • splash of milk
  • half a tablespoon of sugar
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • knob of butter, Ghee also works really well!

1. Get yourself a bowl/ deep plate into which you can lay down your bread later.
2. In the bowl, mix the egg, milk, sugar and cinnamon until you have something like a thin batter.
3. Soak each side of the bread in the batter for a minute or so. It should feel like a supersoaked sponge.
4. Melt the butter in a skillet and then bake the soaked slice of bread.

This is lovely with a fruity topping. Just heat a handful of berries in a pot with a tablespoon of water until the fruit is soft.
