Apples are the perfect seasonal breakfast fruit.

For 1 person (from 3 to 4 mini pancakes)

Preparation: 4 to 6 minutes (for one pancake)

1 egg | 20 g buckwheat flour | 50 g Maisen® | 2 tbsp semi-fat milk ¼ tsp coffee baking powder | ½ apple | Oil for cooking | Salt

✖ Whisk egg, buckwheat flour, Maïzena®, milk, baking powder and 1 pinch of salt in a bowl.

✖ Peel the apple, grate, add to the dough and mix.

✖ Lightly oil a small pancake pan with an oil-soaked paper towel.

✖ Preheat the pan, then pour 1 small spoonful of batter. Fry for 2-3 minutes on each side over low heat. Do this until the dough runs out.

Good idea for these mini pancakes? The addition of grated apple, which naturally reduces the number of calories, making them soft. Gluten free thanks to buckwheat flour and Maizena®, they are also very easy to digest. Serve them with a little honey or applesauce.

For 6 gingerbread cookies

1 organic orange | 100 g wheat flour | 50 g rye flour | 60 g honey

1 packet of baking powder | 3 eggs | 3 small Swiss cheeses 0% fat (180 g)

1 tbsp spice spoon for gingerbread | 1 pinch of salt

✖ Preheat the oven to 180°C (step 6). Wash the orange, grate a little zest to make 1 teaspoon. Squeeze out half an orange.

✖ Mix wheat and rye flour, honey, baking powder, spices and salt in a bowl. Add eggs, orange juice, zest and petit suisses. Mix to get a smooth paste.

✖ Pour into small silicone molds (for muffins or mini muffins). Bake 15 minutes in the oven. Enjoy warm or cold.

Here’s a lighter version of traditional gingerbread, thanks to the addition of small swiss to the dough. Serve these energizing buns with almond puree or a little butter and applesauce: perfect for a winter breakfast.

Traditional oatmeal for the whole morning.

100 g oatmeal | 40 ml oat milk

1 vanilla pod | 2 tbsp teaspoon agave or maple syrup

1 tbsp hazelnut puree | 1 tbsp a teaspoon of grated coconut

For filling : 1 banana | 50 g blueberries | 1 handful crushed walnuts or pecans

✖ Put oatmeal and milk in a saucepan.

✖ Cut the vanilla bean with a knife, cut it in half, then peel the inside with a knife blade to extract the seeds. Add the split pod and seeds to the pot.

✖ Heat over low/medium heat for 4-5 minutes. Remove the vanilla pod.

✖ Remove from heat, add syrup, nut puree and grated coconut.

✖ Divide the mixture between 2 bowls. Garnish with banana slices, blueberries and crushed walnuts.

Thanks to oatmeal, rich in fiber (and in particular beta-glucan fiber, known for its ability to lower cholesterol levels) and protein, oatmeal is ideal for avoiding snacking in the morning. Feel free to vary the milk: almond milk will give it a delicious gourmet taste, rice milk will give it a sweet taste…
