A Valentine’s Day Breakfast Inspiration

February 7, 2016

Happy Sunday!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and my favorite way to celebrate it is with a sweet and healthy Valentine’s morning breakfast in bed! I love the idea of getting all dressed up for Valentine’s dinner, but there’s also something incredibly romantic about just waking up together, staying in bed for a couple extra hours, and treating my hubby to a special breakfast.

So, on the menu today we have 3 super easy and (somewhat) healthy breakfast recipes plus a bonus printable for your special swolemate 😉 Buon appetito!

Naturally every girl needs some flowers to make the day special…and a card too, of course. You can download our special card here.

I also love mimosas for a lazy Sunday breakfast. This one has a special twist by using raspberries and Chambord liqueur instead of orange juice.

Ingredients
  1. Dough
  2. 260 ml lukewarm almond milk (or milk of choice)
  3. 2 1/4 tsp instant yeast
  4. 80 ml beet juice (or water if you don't care for the pink color)
  5. 3 tbsp moscovado sugar
  6. 445 g spelt flour
  7. 1 tsp fine salt
  8. Filling
  9. 280 g frozen strawberries
  10. 2 tsp stevia
  11. 1 tsp cornstarch
  12. 2 tsp fresh orange zest
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Heat milk until lukewarm and dissolve the yeast in it.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook, add the milk and all other dough ingredients and stir until combined. Turn mixer on medium speed and knead for 5 minutes, or until smooth.
  4. Remove dough to a floured work surface, cover, and let rest for 20 minutes.
  5. In a medium bowl cut up frozen strawberries and combine with stevia, cornstarch and orange zest.
  6. After dough has rested, use a floured rolling pin to roll it out into a rectangle, about 1/2 cm thick. Spread evenly with strawberry mixture.
  7. Starting on the long side, tightly roll dough up, stopping at center. Roll the other side up so that the two sides meet in the middle. Gently press together.
  8. Use a very sharp knife to cut dough into 10 equal pieces. Shape pieces into hearts by pinching the bottom of roll between two fingers.
  9. Place in greased baking sheet. Bake for about 25 minutes, or until lightly golden brown.
Notes
  1. If you feel like getting a bit of an arm workout, knead the dough by hand.
