I don’t even remember the last time I added a recipe! I honestly don’t remember the last time I cooked. However, if I cook, it’s always something healthy.
The problem is that I always spend much more time searching the internet than cooking. In case you are the same kind of a person, you will definitely love this set of cookbooks, created by a group of healthy-lifestyle enthusiasts. They put together a lot of recipes for healthy and nutritionally balanced breakfasts, lunches, soups, salads, smoothies, as well as desserts. What I like most is that there are micronutrients listed for each recipe, so you know exactly what you ate.
In case you don’t mind cooking from the Internet, they also have a website or an app called Fitrecepty. Unfortunatelly everything is in Czech.
I have used these cookbooks several times, but I loved one recipe so much, that I decided to share it with you. These are healthy pancakes with no white sugar and no flour. The sugar is replaced by a banana and the flour by oatmeal. Proteins are provided by cottage cheese (which goes inside) and Greek yogurt (which goes on the top).
For the batter you will need:
- 160 g of oats
- 100 g of cottage cheese
- 1 teaspoon of phosphate-free baking powder
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- ripe banana
- 1 egg
- 80 ml of soya milk
You’ll also need:
- Greek yogurt
- strawberries & blueberries (or any other fruit)
Simply mix the batter ingredients together. Heat up the pan and bake the pancakes for about 2 minutes from each side. If you have a good pan, you don’t even need to add oil. That’s not my case, so I used a half a teaspoon of coconut oil.
You can decorate the pancakes with Greek yogurt & fruit and a fabulous (not only) weekend breakfast is ready. I was done in about 15 minutes, which is proof that you don’t have to spend hours in the kitchen to prepare a healthy meal.
And how did it taste?
I’ve never had better pancakes (okay, the ones from iHop are pretty good too, but hey, those are nastyyyyyy). I made a bit too many of them, so I put them in the refridgerator, which I visited regularly throughout the afternoon. By the evening, they were all gone and I gotta say, that they’re pretty good cold & without the yoghurt too.
And what about you guys, do you prefer online recipes or good old books? Do you actually use cookbooks or you have it all in your head already?
