From no-breakfast to breakfast-addicted – this is how you can call my story. And such breakfast like this one has contributed to make me think on breakfast first once I wake up. But let’s be honest, chocolate and salted caramel sound more like a dessert than the first meal of the day, right? And who can say “no” to chocolate, salted caramel or dessert? Yeah, I guess nobody. Dessert for breakfast sounds to good be true? Believe me, these overnight oats variation is one of my favorite with very good reason. It’s creamy, not to sweet, chocolaty and topped with the best sweet treat ever: salted caramel sauce. So it will not only fills your stomach (and keeps you full until lunch), but also your soul (you know, chocolate is always for the youl, too :-))
People who know me in real life (or follow me on Instagram), probably know I have a weakness for bananas, which are for most people unspectacular fruits. Because I love to have sweet breakfast, it happens very often, that I mix my daily oats with a mashed banana or add banana slices on top. Bananas give some sweetness without adding refined sugar, what means I feel less guilty 🙂 But whenever I don’t care about calories or sugar in the morning, I love to grab a slice of sweet bread or muffin and have it with a big mug with steaming coffee for breakfast. Seriously, who would have thought it, that my favorites are those, which contain bananas (but we all know, we should rather call those baked goods banana cake) 😉
A few months ago i told you i am not a “breakfast-girl”, but now I must confess, that I have done a U-turn over this fact. I dare it is only a matter of habit. Since I take my time in the morning to sit down for having some granola or porridge at home, breakfast is the first thing on my mind when I wake up. I would even say this meal in the morning is my favorite one. And I love it especially on weekends or holidays, when I have all the time in the world for hot coffee/tea, juices, fruits, eggs, yogurt and freshly baked bread. Fortunatly, we have a lot good bakeries with gorgeous tasting bread here in Germany, which are also open on sundays.
First of all: I wish you all a happy new year! I hope you enjoyed your holidays with your lovely ones and now you are recovering from good food, drinks and new year’s celebration. It is really loveliest time of the year for me, because during the christmas time and beetween christmas and new year’s eve i can take a more relaxed view on things in my life. But when it is all over, it always feels like a hangover, a mental hangover. I am a little bit tired, think with some melancholy about the last year and what to expect in next year. Actually, i am not one for making new year’s resolutions, because i think you don’t need a new year to change something if you really want to and most of the new year’s resolutions will be break latest after one month anyway 😀
