My top 5 BRUNCH/BREAKFAST ideas! Simple, beautiful & delicious weekend recipes!

in #food2 years ago

Hi my friends! Its time for you to create the best sunday brunch you can imagine! But keep it simple, its weekend!

My mother called me today and asked me for some breakfast/brunch ideas. She told me that she is having some guests over tomorrow sunday and wanted to make something special for them. So I gave her some ideas that she liked, and the same I want to do for you today! I know many of you enjoy some special food and time at the weekend, so here are my top 5 recipes and ideas!

Here is what I have for you today:

  • a beautiful overnight and berry mandala
  • chia pudding
  • peanut butter-banana pancakes
  • wraps
  • hazelnut pancakes with a peanut caramel cream

Get inspired and create magic in your kitchen!

8-10 medium sized pancakes


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp natural peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp unsalted peanuts
  • 1 cup plantbased milk
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • Optional: pinch vanilla (and sweetener if you like to have your pancakes sweet)


  1. Blend the rolled oats, chia and peanuts in a blender until you have a fine flour.
  2. Add the other ingredients and blend until well combined.
  3. Let the batter set for 5 minutes before you cook them on medium heat on borth sides for a couple minutes until through.
  4. Top with more peanut butter and enjoy with banana slices!

Wraps filled with baked egg plants

I just come across this older image of mine and got hungry! Here you can read how to make them;) I use to make my own flatbread gluten free and use aquafaba for the dough. This is our typical sunday brunch or lunch, and its simple to make but a little time consuming. If you love the idea that you can fill them with whatever you like, this is the best sunday brunch you can make! I always make some hummus or avocado dip to have with the wraps. And of course many more veggies;)

Hazelnut Pancakes with a peanut-caramel cream

parafaits (1 von 1)-8.jpg

8-10 medium sized pancakes


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 handful hazelnuts (you can use roasted nuts if you like more nutty flavour)
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour or almond flour
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 1/2 cup plantbased milk
  • 1/1 tbsp apple vinegar
  • Optional: pinch vanilla (sweetener if you wish to make sweet pancakes, about 1-2 tbsp)


  1. Blend all the dry ingredients in a blender until you have fine flour.
  2. Mix the plantbased milk and apple vinegar in a bowl and set aside for 5 minutes before you add it to the dry ingredients.
  3. Blend all the ingredients and pour the batter in a bowl before you let the batter set for 5 minutes.
  4. Cook on both sides until through.
  5. If you want to make a peanut butter caramel cream, simple add maple syrup to 1/2 cup natural peanut butter and stir with a fork. Add little by little and stop when it is sweet enough. You add some water to make the caramel more liquid, or keep it thick.
  6. Eat and enjoy with a cup of matcha and many berries. Yumm;)

So many delicious ideas! It makes me happy that I am such a fan of second breakfast--it means I'm more likely to get to try them all. ;)

Haha, that is great when you have some extra space for the second one, and maybe for the third! I do that very often actually, right after the first breakfast, I start preparing the next one, a lot because of my passion of taking pictures, lol!

Hazelnut Pancakes with a peanut-caramel cream.... that sounds so good! Actually, they all look so good and beautiful!

Yea that peanut butter caramel is great! You could replace the hazelnuts with any other nuts😉👌

Love hazelnuts but so hard to find here!

But you got some other amazing foods we dont have here in europe!;)

These all look amazing!! Can't wait to try those pancakes :D

Oh thank you so much Nina!🙏😘The pancakes taste so good, and are very healthy too😉👌

Beautiful, delicious and super healthy collection Sweetie. I don't know which one I want to try first. 🍓💚🍓

Haha, yea, once at the time I suggest!!;) Thanks my love!;)

(Mommies have their own night life, right!?)

A very happy birthday to you! I love the colours in the pictures you posted.

Thank you so much my friend!

Thank you for this amazing collection of brunch recipes! I love the savory wraps ♥ Upvoted and resteemed :)

Thanks sweetie!!

Wow, this all looks delicious! I love that the pancakes are gluten free, too. <3

Yea they are great, thank you so much for checking out my breakfast tips! So glad you like it!❤🙏😍

Thank you for all these tips and ideas, sometimes porridge can be a little boring everyday, I have been using strawberries recently, sometimes nuts, sprinkling carob or coconut on top, but I do miss the days of a savoury breakfast.... I like the idea of your egg plant pancake.... I'm going to try in one day soon. (I just had breakfast now, I'm hungry for that hehe)

Oh yes those wraps filled with baked or roasted eggplants are so delicious, definitely one of my favourite meals! Together with some homemade spread as hummus or vegan cream cheese, salad, tomatoes, and cucumber and some fresh herbs, this wrap will make you so happy hehe😉🤗

Have a great Birthday! Thanks for sharing all these brunch ideas and recipes.

Thank you so much for your sweet wishes!! I will enjoy, thank you!!;) Have a beautiful sunday sweetheart!
