Review: Spelt muffin from Albert Heijn To Go

image

Because I travel by train every week, I regularly visit an Albert Heijn To Go at one of the trainstations I pass by. I often check the aisles for new items as they tend to appear first in the Albert Heijn To Go stores before being adopted into the stock of the regular stores. It is almost like in a concept store: the products are given a test: if they are sold often enough, then they will go mainstream. This happend for example with the Spelt twister, quinoa salad and the sushi. This time I discovered something interesting again: two new muffins made with 100% spelt flour. It is so great they offer more and more options for people with allergies or who have a certain food ideology!

Recipe: Roasted chickpeas with honey and cinnamon

Roated chickpeas with honey and cinnamon

I am always on the lookout for new things to snack on, especially healthy snacks. I had read about roasted chickpeas a couple of times and I had pinned some recipes on Pinterest months ago already. Chickpeas are very healthy and low in calories. They become crunchy when you roast them in the oven, so it is a perfect snack when you are craving something crunchy. With chili or parmesan seemed very tasty, but I wanted to try a sweet version first, so today I made a batch of honey cinnamon chickpeas. I only made a very tiny can, because I didn’t know if I would like it (which I deeply regret now, as you might understand).

Inspiration: 10 times fruit in your oatmeal (the realistic way)

image

I’m seeing the most amazing photos of jaw dropping breakfast bowls with uncountable kinds of ingredients on Instagram every day. A lot of different fruits, nuts, superfoods, sprinkles, colors and whatnot are added in these breakfasts. Everything is perfectly cut and nicely shape and arranged in layers and patterns.The pictures alone are mouthwatering pieces of art. But realisticly, as much as I want it to, my breakfast almost never looks as great, not even close (even while it has the same ingredients sometimes). Simply because I don’t have the time to cut fruit in a creative way, or puff some rice or amaranth every day. And if it is very early, I don’t even care how my oatmeal looks, as long as it tastes goodThis is why I decided to share 10 of my regular, ready in 2 minutes oatmeal and fruit breakfasts. Some still look ok, others plain boring, but most important is how they tasted. I really liked all of these combinations.

Inspiration: Oatmeal with fresh figs

Oatmeal with figs

So, I start almost every day with a bowl of oatmeal and I try to vary as much as I can with what goes into the oatmeal. Usually, it is a kind of fruit, something to add a taste and something that gives a little texture. Instead of the more ‘regular’ kind of fruits, I decided to be more adventurous and tried fresh figs this time.Β  I did remove the skin, as the figs were not cooked or baked or anything. The figs were nice and sweet and I liked the bite of the seeds in the figs as an addition to my oalmeal. The combination with honey and walnuts was a great fit. I turned out to really like this combination for breakfast, so I decided to share the contents of the bowl with you:
