Friday Inspiration

For the last couple of months I’ve become more and more interested in home interiors. I love browsing the internet for inspiration and to have a look into other people’s houses. There’s a certain magic in the way that every space has it’s own identity, decorated with the things that we love. This week I’ve been eyeing the pretty living room make over from Our Food Stories in their countryside flat. Especially love that small workspace corner!

Recipe: Honey Granola


For the last few weeks I’ve been experimenting with making my own granola, after constanty taking services from Creamsta. I was actually surprised by how easy and quick you could make a batch of granola. Not only the taste is far better than the ones they have in the supermarket but it’s also much cheaper if you make it yourself. So far my favourite one is honey granola made out of oats, almonds, pecan nuts, pumpkin seeds and coconut flakes. Here’s what you’ll need for a small batch (around 3-4 servings):

  • 2 table spoons of coconut oil
  • around 200 grams of oats/rolled oats
  • a handful of almonds
  • a handful of pecan nuts
  • a handful of pumpkin seeds
  • two handful of coconut flakes
  • two/three table spoons of honey

ingredientsclose-up-ingredientsPreheat the oven to 175 degrees C/ 350 degrees F. Put around 200 grams of oats in a bowl and melt two tablespoons of coconut oil in a sauce pan. When the coconut oil turns fluid pour it over the oats while stirring it.

Chop up the almonds and pecan nuts and add them to the bowl. Add a handful of pumpkin seeds and two handful of coconut flakes. Pour two to three table spoons of fluid honey on top and mix everything well. Spread the mixture onto a baking sheet and put in the oven for at least 20-25 minutes. Stir the mixture lightly every 10 minutes. As every oven tends to be a little bit different, your granola will be ready when it turns golden.

Let it cool completely before you store it into a jar. Off course you can make a bowl straight away so that the granola will still be warm (+ very delicious!). I like to stir a drop of honey into my yoghurt first and then add the granola plus some fruit.

I hope you will love this recipe as much as I do, so please let me know when you tried it! A big plus of making this recipe is the incredible smell that will fill up your house.   bowl-1

It’s Friday!


I’m so happy it’s Friday and that the weekend is about to start. This week I felt quite uninspired and tired, I had to really push myself to get any work done. Maybe it’s because the change of the seasons? I’m looking forward to a busy weekend enjoying the early Autumn days together with family and friends. I can’t wait to go to the French bakery tomorrow morning to get some freshly baked croissants, my favourite Saturday tradition. What are your plans?

Here’s some weekend inspiration from my Pinterest.
