The wet ground smells of spring and the birds sing. It rings in my head that wonderful things are going to happen. I've been walking to the new Good Life Coffee a lot. I love the livingroom atmosphere. And the coffee.

Banana coconut pancakes

This morning the sun shone in, I made banana coconut pancakes and then carried on unpacking stuff in my new home. I'm getting there! (I've made these pancakes on so many mornings lately. I've tweaked the recipe a little to have banana taste more, yum.)


(makes about 15 small pancakes)

3 (large) ripe bananas
5 organic eggs
75g shredded coconut
coconut oil for frying

Mash the bananas with a fork. Beat the eggs lightly and add them and the shredded coconut and stir until combined. Bake 3-4 pancakes (about 7cm in diameter) at a time in a pan on medium heat. Flip the pancakes very carefully; with a little more banana and a little less eggs these are very fragile but they're so worth the effort! Serve with blueberries and maple syrup.

My new home absolutely bathes in light. I'm in love. It already feels like the most special home I've had. A place of peace. A place of dreams coming true.

Yesterday I made possibly the best tasting cake I have ever made. Today I got the first flowers here. Happy days.

(The pictures lie: boy, there's still so much to unpack and organize..)



200ml mulberries
200ml almond flour
good pinch of salt
1-3tbsp water, depending on how dry the mulberries are

175ml cashews, soaked overnight and rinsed
1 ripe banana
300ml blackcurrants
1-2tsp organic honey
vanilla powder
90 ml coconut oil, melted

blueberries for garnish

Grind mulberries in a food processor, add almond flour and salt and pulse a few times to mix. Add water while the food processor is running (you want a thick paste). Line the bottom of a springform tin (18-20cm) with baking paper and press the crust mixture firmly in the tin. Place the tin in the freezer to wait. Rinse food processor well. Blend cashews in the food processor until smooth and creamy. Add banana and mix. Add blackcurrants (it can be easier to add them in parts if they're frozen) and honey and vanilla and mix well. Last add melted coconut oil with the food processor running and mix until well combined and smooth. Taste and add more honey and/or vanilla if desired. Spread the topping evenly on the crust and freeze for an hour or two or until served. Remove from freezer 30 minutes prior to eating and top with blueberries.
