Today we had a sunny pancake brunch picnic in our garden. The spring sun was warm and radiant and we could almost hear our skin crunching on the rays of the sun converting them into much needed vitamins. For hours we laid basking on a king sized snow bed couch covered with reindeer hides, while sipping Golden Milk and munching Raw Nougat Hazelnut Cream spread on Buckwheat Pancakes sprinkled with sliced banana, walnuts and coconut chips.
Yep.. that just happened!
1 dl buckwheat flour
1/2 Tbsp Psyllium husk
a pinch of quality sea/mountain salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
2,5 dl oat/nutmilk
Combine all the dry ingredients. Add eggs and milk and whisk until smooth.
Allow yourself and the batter to rest for 15 min.
Heat up a pan and add some coconut oil. Fry them golden on both sides.
Raw Nougat Hazelnut Cream
50 g hazelnuts (about 3 Tbsp)
2 – 3 Tbsp raw organic coconut oil
1 Tbsp quality organic cacao
1,5 Tbsp raw honey
Grind the hazelnuts in a food processor several minutes until fine and the oils starts to come out. Add melted coconut oil, cacao and honey and process until desirable consistency (more coconut oil – more runny). We like ours like a spread.
Enjoy your pancakes with a variation of topping;
Golden Milk is a brew of the gods. It is a delicious and nourishing medicine for the entire body, inside out.
First make the paste for the milk:
1 cup dried organic turmeric
1 tablespoon dried organic ginger
1 tsp black pepper
about 1,5 dl water
Mix all the spices and dilute with water to a desirable consistency (creamy but not runny) be sure to add the black pepper since it help the body absorb (enhances bioavaliability) the medicinal properties of turmeric. Simmer for about 7-8 minutes. Let it cool down and put it in a glass jar. Store in refrigerator, will last at least a week. Enjoy every evening and maybe every morning too!
1 large cup or two small
1 Tbsp Golden Paste
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1/2 Tbsp honey (optional)
3 cups chaga/herb tea or other hot brew or water
1.5 dl oat milk (or nut milk)
Add coconut oil and golden mixture in a hot saucepan and stir in a little tea until smooth, add the rest of the tea, heat and simmer for several minutes. Remove from the heat and mix in the oat milk, honey and if you wish you can add some grated fresh ginger. Pour into cups and enjoy!
This brew puts all sleepless souls to rest.
We are happy to see some early signs of spring; the birds are chirping and feasting in the trees which are already covered in catkins. Spring is awesome!
