Hello, how was your weekend? This past week got the best of me. I was in Macon sur Saone for 4 days and came home late on Thursday evening after a drive for more than 10 hours.

With all this excitement and travel I have not eaten the healthiest, but an old, reliable healthy readiness is also greatly appreciated. Especially if your goal is to slow down at the beginning of the week with a healthy charge.


Here you come now 2 of my Energy booster recipes for a healthy vitamin boost to start the week.

First, a simple recipe to make your own granola and then my personal favourite the green energy in the glass the “Green Boost”


Cranberry Granola for a joyful start in the day

Preparation time 25 minutes including baking


100gr                        oat flakes (bio)

80gr                         Almonds, unblanched

25gr                          Pumpkin seeds

25gr                          Sunflower seeds

25gr                          wheat germ

1 pinch                      cinnamon, grounded

1 pinch                      cardamom, grounded

11/2 tbsp.                 rape oil (bio)

3 tbsp.                     maple syrup

1 tbsp.                      agave syrup

120gr                        cranberries, dried (bio)


  • Preheat the oven to 170˚C
  • Mix the oats, almonds, pumpkin and sunflower seeds with wheat germ.
  • Stir under grounded cinnamon and cardamom.
  • Add the oil, maple syrup and agave syrup to the mixture, stir it well and spread the mixture on a baking tray, lined with baking paper.
  • Bake the granola in the centre of the preheated oven for around 15 min.
  • Leave to cool for few minutes, than break up gently and stir under the cranberries.


Tipp: You can store the granola easily for around 2 weeks when you make it as a bigger amount. Use for storing a cereal glass with lid and store it on a dark and dry place.
