:: How to make your day, when you`re sick at home? Make a smoothie, homemade nutella and some Buckwheat pancakes (gluten free) ::

Being sick at home is the worst. I get bored so fast, even though I have a bad version of a headache. So, I`ve slept for two days, which was actually very good for me and yesterday, I was already feeling a bit better, so the only logical thing was to spoil myself with something sweet. :)
But, let`s go step by step.. In the morning it was time to enjoy the morning sun, check out new issues of  the magazines and have a great healthy portion of a green smoothie. Yum! :)

 Later in the day, I felt I need some energy + I was craving for something sweet, but I had nothing at
home and since I was sick I couldn`t go to the store, so it was time for plan B. I`ve checked what I have from the ingridients at home and remembered that I saw a recipe for homemade nutella at Urška`s blog, the girl I wrote about a few days ago (check here). Ha, so I had the nutella, but that was not enough, I needed something to eat it with, so the only logical thing was to make buckwheat pancakes. It was the first time I used buckwheat flour and I loved it. I found the recipe over at DB`s blog and the pancakes were delicious! That man knows how to cook! ;)

Blend it & enjoy it!  ;)


Mix together in a pan:
  • 2 large spoons of coconut oil
  • 2-3 large spoons of cacao
  • 1/2 cup of hazelnut spread
How to make hazelnut spread? 
Put a spoon of coconut oil in a pan, add hazelnuts and fry it until it smells good. Then mix them in a blender, together with dates that were soaked in the water for a while, almond milk, vanilla pod and a bit of a sweetener (maple syrup, honey..).

 .. and about the quantities, play a bit, add more of what you like, add some things, whatever. :) I for example didn`t had almond milk, so I`ve used the normal one and I used an extra spoon of cacao + I`ve added one vanilla sugar and I mixed the whole hazelnut spread cuz otherwise I know I wouldnt use it. 


  • (3-4 really big pancakes, or 6 normal size)
  • 1 egg
  • 100g buckwheat flour (gluten free)
  • 2 dcl goat`s milk (I only had normal(cow) one )
  • 1 dcl of mineral water
  • 1 full spoon of tapioca flour (I only had rice flour, so I used it instead of tapioca f.)
  • a pinch of salt
  • a pinch of brown cane sugar
  • a piece of coconut butter 
  • You can also add some cinnamon or grate lemon peel

Whisk the egg, add milk and both flours. Mix it well, so you will get a smooth mass, add a pinch of salt and sugar and in the end, just to make the mass a bit softer, add the mineral water.
Heat up the pan and grease it, like you would wipe it with the coconut butter. Than, put a scoop of mass in a hot pan, turn it around after a while, so it will be done on both sides.
More or less, that`s it. I guess you baked pancakes before, so you know the drill. ;) 

Enjoy it! ;)

  1. Samo, da si bolje! Sladek dan si si pričarala... lepo!
    Palačinke so njami... tudi pri nas brez kozjega mleka in tapiokine moke, sem jih zadnjič pekla znova :), ampak tale Nutella... če bi imela doma lešnike, bi jo pripravila še ta hip...Poskusim prav kmalu...
    Prijetne urice, kakšno fino knjigo in... ujemi kakšen žarek sončka!

    1. Hvala, Sabina! <3
      Tudi tebi želim lepe, s soncem obsijane dni! ;)

  2. Me veseli, da so ti bile palačinke všeč. Tudi jaz sem včasih uporabil kar riževo moko, če že nisem imel tapiokine.
    Domača nutella pa pride tudi pri meni kmalu, saj bo z novim blenderjem gladka skoraj kot original.

    1. Ma, odlične so, res! Bodo sigurno v kratkem spet na jedilniku. :)
      Ja, blender ima veliko vlogo (važič), meni ni tak fino zmiksalo in posledično ni bila tako gladka, je pa okus vseeno pravi. ;)

    2. LOL @ važič ;)

      S časoma vse pride, če ne, pa božiček prinese. Mogoče pa ne verjameš več v božička?

    3. Heh, bomo videli, mogoče me pa letos božiček preseneti. ;) Mu moram napisat pismo, razen, če je tudi on šel v korak s časom in bere bloge ;)
