Marvelous in my Monday – this fall’s pancake recipe


23. September 2013 by swissfitchick

Hey Peeps!

A Marvelous Monday to you all!


Thanks to the healthy Diva for a marvelous start of the week!

Ok, I will try to keep this post short and sweet, cause you know, I will be off today for vacation….and I may or may not will spend 2 nights away from the beach house in this hotel…

Ok, there’s no doubt really. I will.

But before I go, I provide you with a promised recipe from last week – pancakes! I worked on the recipe a bit and this weekend it did the trick. They didn’t fall apart, they had the perfect consistency and the perfect taste. Go, drool.

Kabocha Squash Protein Pancakes – glutenfree (1 serving of 3 small pancakes)


150g roasted kabocha squash (a little overbaked is even better)

1/3 cup oatflour (glutenfree oats processed in flour)

1 scoop vanilla protein powder (natural or chocolate are fine too – I took Sunwarrior Blend Vanilla)

3 eggwhites

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tbsp powdered stevia

1 dash sea salt

1 dash nutmeg


You could do this professional like mixing all the dry, then mixing all the wet and then put together – I was impatient, so…

Put all the ingredients in a blender and mash/blend/mix.

Heat up a skillet on medium heat.

Spray the skillet with cooking spray or wipe with a paper soaked in coconut oil.

Pour 1/3 of the batter into it, cook for 2-3 minutes on each side and flip.

Repeat with the other 2/3 of the batter.

Be patient! They need the time to be cooked through and don’t get messed up or stay raw on the inside (trust me, this all happened here before).

Top with Coconut Syrup Sauce:Β 

1 tbsp coconut flour

1 tbsp sugarfree maple syrup

water to thin down

Mix and decorate your pancake eat the rest with spoon to mouth.

Indulge and go to heaven.

IMG_1251 IMG_1243Now that this is fixed, let me jus give you a short highlight overview on my weekend….

Friday night I went with one of my Bestie’s to the Sunrise Avenue concert. If you don’t know these guys (they’re European – from Finland), I highly recommend listening to their album – this voice….this voice is just AMAZING.


Nice View.


Girls night out with my wonderful friend!!

I had to get up early the next day for an appointment and I felt like it was the middle of the night. I didn’t really get to bed early the whole week – so that’s also why I definitely need a holiday now. I am sleep deprived and my clumsiness gets even worse when I run low on sleep. Considering that I am already clumsy in a normal state, this is a little disaster. Let’s be honest, I am in my mid-thirties and I can not handle a whole week with only 6 hours of sleep – these times are definitely over.

Despite that, the weather was beautiful and it was a nice journey through our pretty country.


Especially with a good breakfast in front of me.

When I arrived in Zurich after lunch, I found this behind the doorstep…..

Sandro was out until Sunday and left me this vacation love note and a Spaghetti Squash πŸ™‚ he knows me. The arrow is a towel hanger we saw in a catalogue and I loved it!

And then I went to bed. Yup. I could hardly keep my eyes open so a nap had to happen. I think naps should turn into my new hobby – so good. After that, I went for a long walk in the forest behind our house. Walks are my activity when I have my restday and I always love it so much. It’s so nice to be out and slow with time to admire the beauty around me.

IMG_4915 IMG_4916Of course I spent my time alone with my current lover….

Sunday morning I lifted some weights and joined the Outdoor Bootcamp which was a lovely start of the day. Then I had my pancakes. Sorry, I have to show them again…


And then I overpacked. Again. I don’t know if the day will come when I pack JUST the things I actually NEED. Saying that, I really think I need all this stuff. I mean, how can you know what happens? I just want to be prepared for anything. Fair enough, right?


I worked a few hours on my blog too to set up all the guest posts I will be hosting during my time off. Be sure you check in, I have some brilliant, amazing and funny people writing for me – I am VERY excited to present them all to you!!

Besides that, I will probably unplug as much as possible. I want to concentrate on some quality time with the man, on my free time and just enjoy the days as they come. I will definitely post here and there or check in on Instagram, but if I don’t comment or reply to emails as much, please forgive me – I’ll be back in 2 weeks!

Love you all!

    Wish you and Sandro an amazing time off! Spain is the best and you should really try to unplug everything.

    Those kabocha pancakes look amazing – I totally wouldn’t have been able to resist posting multiple pictures of them too!!

  10. I love the note about being a little over-baked. Everything I make is a little over baked… LOL!

  11. Lisa says:

    Hope you have an amazing time!!! Can’t wait to hear all about it.
    And I love that you added kabocha to your pancakes. I’m pretty sure it’s good in everything!
    Also that spaghetti squash and zucchini meal looks wonderful!

  12. cottercrunch says:

    have a great trip!! but i am a bit jealous. more of the pancakes than anything. haha

  13. By the looks of those pictures, I know you’re having a great time. I can’t wait to give those pancakes a try. They look absolutely delish, especially the sauce!

  14. Have fun on your trip! When you get back, can I come over for breakfast ;)?

  15. Your pancakes look soooooooooooooooooooo good! Oh my goodness!!

    I hope you are having a fabulous time on your trip!

  16. Awww, honey! I hope you have a fabulous time on your trip! Love the little gifts the man left for you to find! And I LOVE these pancakes…but of course, how could I not since they ARE pancakes and happen to feature my FAVORITE vegetable EVER! I meant to get around to making up a kabocha pancake recipe last year, but just couldn’t help myself from devouring the entire pan straight out of the oven (or the fridge later because we all know COLD roasted veggies are the best!). The pictures look fantastic too! Hmm, are you giving the Pancake Queen a little competition? πŸ˜‰

    For the record, I am the WORST overpacker…so don’t feel bad! But you’re totally right…you never know what might happen and what you might need! Better to be OVERprepared, am I right? And duuuuuuude, the clumsiness! Maybe that’s why I’ve been slowly breaking every dish I have in my house right now…must get more sleep! Lol

Who thought I would ever write again. Link in Bio. β€š'In essence, love is the consistent embodiment of care, compassion, kindness, and joy toward yourself, your partner, and each other as two interconnected and supported beings. If you encounter those feelings, you can't work around your own vulnerability.

But: there is one emotion that is stronger than fear, and that is forgiveness. For power is never simply a possession but an exercise; power is about how we understand ourselves. If we can forgive, we can let go. If we can let go, we can detach. If we can detach, we find happiness.' #blogger #heartstories #detachment #happiness
