Pear-Muffins und Cracker for Breakfast

Teller, Becher, Schale mit Muffins

A Swedish inspired breakfast

The days are getting shorter and although we enjoy a wonderful Indian summer, all of us in the family have a great desire for cosiness.

So when I read that Green Kitchen Stories is running a competition with Stedsans in the woods, I just had to enter a pic. I mean, how cool would it be to make a little escape with my love to the Swedish woods next year?

Plus it is “International Porridge Day” so I submitted a Swedish inspired breakfast, you can give it a heart  at my  Instagram account ❤️.

So today you get 2 recipes, because they are both wonderful and if the stove is already running, it is worthwhile to do both.

Do you need a recipe for the porridge? Yay or Nay? Please leave a comment if you want one, I’ll write down if needed.

The crispy crackers are made so fast and easy, I’m thrilled every time I make them. As always, I encourage you to vary the basic recipe. Maybe you do not like pine nuts, or they are just out of stock. Then just do it without. Pumpkin seeds are the hit with your kids? Use them as a add on! Just try it, it’s worth it.

My boys liked the muffins so much, there was even a little drama about it! Time is always running so fast, you know, as soon as the muffins and crackers are baked, the porridge stirred and the spreads mixed, the first child is already back from school. And it just was not quite enough time to take some extra pics of the muffins.

I didn’t need 12 muffins though, so every kid could have one straight away. Even two visiting children tasted it and they all loved them.

The muffins are approved !!

Of course, our youngest wanted to have another muffin! So understandable, but I just wanted to get them in front of my lens. Phew, what a drama in the house! The stupidest job of all time I have according to the little one, always EVERYTHING must be photographed, NEVER can he eat something!!

I can tell you: life ain’t easy sometimes.
