Protein Pancakes

For 2 people

Pancakes originally come from America and are smaller and thicker than regular pancakes. With maple syrup and bananas, pancakes are the perfect sweet breakfast.


120 g white flour
1 tbsp golden bean
1 tbsp poppy seeds
1 tbsp coconut sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
250 ml soy milk
Some oil for frying
maple syrup for serving
1 banana, thinly sliced

In a bowl, whisk together the flour, golden bean, poppy seeds, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add soy milk and stir until smooth.

Heat some oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add 2 tablespoons of batter per pancake to pan (batter should make about 6 pancakes), fry for 2 minutes, then flip and cook for another 2 minutes.

Serve pancakes with maple syrup and banana slices.

Banana, spinach, peanut-butter protein smoothie

The best way to start the day is with a delicious smoothie: banana, spinach, peanut butter, cashew milk and vegan protein from Alver (Golden Bean or Golden Pea). Depending on your needs and goals, these three superfoods are the perfect source of vegan protein to complement plant-based meals.


1 cup plant-based milk (almond, cashew, or coconut milk)
2 cups baby spinach
2 frozen bananas
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1-2 tbsp golden bean or golden pea
Chia seeds

Put all ingredients in a blender. Mix until desired consistency is achieved. Pour into a glass and sprinkle with chia seeds.

Smoothie Bowl

(for 2 bowls)

Smoothie bowls are the ideal way to start the day: fresh, filling and full of nutrients. The bowls can be adjusted as you wish. If you vary the fruit and toppings, you get a completely different taste experience. Simply choose your favorite varieties and try them out.


50 ml plant-based milk (e.g. oat milk)
50 ml orange juice or ½ fresh orange
100 g vegan coconut yoghurt
2 tbsp golden beans
130 g frozen papaya
100g frozen mango
1 frozen banana


coconut flakes
Dried edible flowers
Seeds (e.g. flaxseed or chia)
Fresh berries/ fruits of your choice
½ tsp golden chlorella

Take your blender and first add the milk, orange juice and yogurt. Then add the golden bean protein powder. Blend everything quickly for a few seconds, then add any frozen fruit (it’s very important that they’re frozen). Blend again until you get a smooth consistency. The mixture should not be too runny so that the toppings don’t sink into the mixture, but stay on top.

Pour the mixture into the bowls and garnish with your choice of topping.

Avocado Toast

The brunch classic (for 2 – 3 avocado toasts)

Originating in southern Mexico, the avocado tree was already cultivated by the Coxcatlán culture in Tehuacán. The fruit has been used in tropical and subtropical Central America for around 10,000 years. Avocados are now increasingly popular worldwide and are often eaten as a healthy breakfast.


  • 2-3 slices of bread of your choice
  • 1 very ripe avocado
  • 1 teaspoon golden chlorella
  • 1 small fresh clove of garlic (use garlic press)
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 pinch of pepper
  • 2-3 red radishes
  • 6-8 cherry tomatoes
  • Fresh sprouts or herbs of your choice
  • Thick balsamic vinegar for garnish

First, mash half of the avocado with a fork to a smooth mass, save the other half for later. Add golden chlorella, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper and mix into the guacamole-like bread topping.

Toast the bread. In the meantime, cut the radish into thin slices, cut the cherry tomatoes in half and cut the remaining ½ avocado into thin slices as well.

When your bread is ready, take the avocado mixture and spread it over your toast. Then spread all the toppings on it: first the avocado slices, then the radish, the tomatoes and finally the herbs. If necessary, season with salt, pepper or chili flakes. Finally, a little balsamic vinegar for extra flavor.
