Hi sweethearts! I wish you all a wonderful new week! I just came home from an energizing power run at 6 am. I decided to challenge myself for 21 days and build new habits that will help me to work more focused and bring me closer my goals. One new habit I want to have, is to wake up at 6 am, put the shoes on and run for 10 minutes to just get my body activated.

I started 3 days ago, and so far I love it. Right now we are having such a warm summer weather in Austria, and it is easy to wake up at 6 am when the sun already is shining. The fresh air, the quiet mornings, I have missed that. My little boy is still asleep, and I have some time for myself. That is pure luxery!

My bad habits since many months have been to wake up late and go to bed late, no time management, late to appointments, and no clear goals for myself. So its time to change those habits and replace them with some good instead!

Remember, if you have some bad habits that doesnt bring you forward, instead of trying to get rid of them, simply replace each bad habit with a good one. Otherwise it will be hard to succeed.

My best tips for a good morning routine and to work effective:

  • wake up early, the earlier the better.
  • drink a big glass of room temperature water with some lemon juice (or apple vinegar) to boost your immun system and to hydrate your body.
  • jump up and down at least 50 times or until you are out of breath, or go out for a quick walk or run - to wake up and activate your body, and get some fresh air .
  • make a to-do list for the day. The detailed the list is, the more you will get done. But keep the list simple and dont try to put a whole week in one day. Be kind, and also plan some free time and offline time for your day. If you have kids, one task or 2 can be enough for a day. You dont need to mangage as much as a person without children can manage. Remember that. The clearer your goals are defined, the easier it will be for you to stick to your plan and focuse on what really brings results. I make a goal list for each week, and for each day. I write down the details the evening before, or after I wake up. Otherwise I can get lost in time and dont know where to start when I have some time left for my work.
  • start the day with the most challenging tasks and finish the biggest part of your work before 10 am. (for parents with small kids, try to find some time in the morning before the kids wake up for yourself and the things you cant do when your kids are awake, you will feel so much more effective if you can do that,)
  • eat when you feel hungry, start with fruits.

How do you start the day in a optional way? Let me know below in the comments!

Now its time for me to share an other pancake recipe with you guys, cant get enough of them and make pancakes at least once a week! So how about to start this week with a stack of healthy delicious pancakes that will make every morning happy!

Those pancakes are made with millet flour (by now you know my love for millet!) and roasted hazelnut flour that you easily can make by blending roasted hauelnuts. The roasted hazelnut flour gives the pancakes and very nice nutty flavour that I really like.

Monday Pancakes with chia and hazelnuts!

I love to serve my pancakes with homemade berry jam and this I also made some healthy nutella bliss balls made of roasted hazelnuts, cacao and dates. I also added some melted chocolate to these pancakes, I know how to treat myself well.;)



  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 tbsp chia
  • 40 g hazelnut flour (roasted hazelnuts, blended to a fine flour)
  • 1 cup plantbased milk (I use oat milk)
  • pinch baking powder

  • Blend all the ingredients in a blender of food processor until the batter is smooth.

  • Heat a non-stick pan on medium heat, add a little coconut oil to the pan.
  • Take 2 tbsp from the pancake batter for one pancake. Flip when you can see bubbles on the surface.
  • Tips: You can add some slices of banana or berries on the pancake and than flip to the other side. Cook until through.
  • Serve with warm berries, fruits or something else. Enjoy!

Very Nice Pancake Pictures 😄🥞🥞🥞🥞🥞

Thank you so much dear friend! Hapoy you enjoy them!👌😉Have a great new week!

Wow sieht mega lecker aus, und auch super nachzumachen mit einfachen Zutaten.Danke für den Post :)

Danke dir so sehr! Das freut mich sehr, dass es dir gefällt;)

love those pancakes, can I please have some, I really need to follow your advice. I always stay up too late and sleep in then too late, I would really prefer to have time in the morning to myself xxx

Yes I know, I have joined you those past weeks late at night;) But now its time for a change! I really need this new habit as I work a lot better in the morning that late at night. I get very slow that late... And even if I am productive, I need much more time for each task to get it done. And I dont like to sleep until 9 am or 10 am because I have the feeling that already half the day is gone before I am able to start with my things. I hope you want to join my 21 day challenge!!

Now that's a perfect way to start the day off! Absolutely stunning photos and set-up :) Great job with your morning runs, keep going!

Thanks lovely! I will continue on my new good habits, I feel so great when I start the day like this!!

Love this recipe :D I just made a pancake stack of my own and will edit the photos when we get in from a walk.
I made the mistake of tryinig to work with nicecream and pancakes :D.
I will not do that untill I have some more skills...haha that blob of nicecream came right of the pancakes...

Thanks my love!! Nice with a walk, do you have nice weather today? We have such a great summer weather, it was already wasrm outside at 6 am!! So nice, really, I just love to be able to go out without putting on a jacket!!

It's actually really cold outside today. It was refreshing to take a walk but now I just want to curl up under the blanket and drink some tea :D

Oh really!! Here it was 31 degrees!

Great habit breaking tips. I love the running part. Stopped now that I have a little boy that takes up all my time. Your photos and recipe look delish! We don't get hazelnuts in any shape or form here but I'm going to try almond flour or maybe sunflower seed flour. Thank you

How old is your little boy? Mine is 22 months old, I know exactly how difficult it is to plan anything and get things done, especially sport, when you have a small baby and no time for your self. You can sure try those pancakes with almond or any other nut or seed flour. I use walnut flour sometimes, or coconut flour.
Let me know if you try them out!

Will definitely let you know. Or post it ;) He is 9 months this week. Leopard crawling and standing up all over the place!

These look very tasty this morning Niina! Congrats on last week challenge win! So glad to hear you are running! When my girls were little I used to wake at 5:30 each morning and go for a long run. It was my "me" time. As a mom of little ones you need that time. Enjoy it!

We really need that me time!! I am looking forward to that every day haha;)
Thank you so much for your never-ending support love!! Happy monday;)

I can't take my mind of those pancakes you showed in the last photo ! ;0)

Oh thanks love!! That is so sweet;) Happy new week my dear!;)

Great post, Niina! I love those pancakes + that berry jam! Yummy!
Have great Monday! :)

Thanks so much for your nice comment! This motivates me even more!;) Happy monday!

Hi dear! Those pancakes looks so yummy! I love them so much, especially when you made a healthy recipe with oats and chia , bananas.

Yes I love to make them healthy and sugar free, they are perfect how they are, and with the right toppings a real treat!!;)

Yummies! I love the idea of adding hazelnut flour! The hubby is allergic but I think I could replace that by any other pulverized nuts. Very nice post!

Yes of course! You can replace the hazelnut flour with any other nut or seed flour;) Good luck and let me know how you like them!!


You've done it again.. got me drooling 🤣
