Oatmeal cake with raisins and muesli

“Eat diamonds for breakfast and shine all day!” 🙂 Well this oatmeal cake will most definitely prepare your body to ROCK the day! 

This recipe crossed my path when friends in my gym let me taste a piece of this yummy cake. I was sold and immediately wanted to bake one myself. This power food original recipe was published in a Dutch magazine (source unknown, unfortunately), and therefore I made it my life mission to share this recipe with all the Fit Girls around the world!

I did change two ingredients in this recipe by coincidence 😉 One time I had a “crap-I-ran-out-of-oatmeal” situation and needed a quick fix: muesli. And I added a more healthy flavour to it. So put on your kitchen apron and start collecting the follow ingredients, because this cake will give you superpowers!


  • 2 tea cups oats
  • 1 tea cup muesli
  • 2 tea cups water
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 or 1/2 tea cup raisins


You need to mix 3 ingredients one day before you are planning to bake this cake according to the original recipe in order to have the best result. The friend from my gym said that one hour before baking the cake could also be enough for the ingredients to mix well together 🙂 So decide for yourself whatever works in your timeframe, but make sure the ingredients are mixed well together before you add the rest of the ingredients into the mixture.

Get a bowl and mix the oatmeal, muesli and water. Let this mix stand overnight covered up with foil in the bowl on your kitchen dresser. The water needs to be completely absorbed by the oatmeal and muesli.

The next day you first preheat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius. While it heats up, you mix the eggs, the cinnamon, vanilla extract, baking powder and raisins with the oatmeal-muesli mixture in the bowl. You don’t need a kitchen machine for this, simply stir it up with a spoon.

You could also, instead of raisins, mix cranberry’s, unsalted nuts, slices of apple in this cake. Whatever has your preference 😉 Pour the mixture into a baking dish or baking pan covered with baking paper. Leave it in the oven for half an hour and check with a skewer if the inside of the cake is dry enough. Leave it in the oven a bit longer if the mixture sticks on the skewer and check it again after 5 till 10 minutes.

Voila! Enjoy!

I really hope you give this oatmeal cake a try! Let me know in the comments below if you recognize the recipe so we can thank the creator of it with cherries on top! 😉

I am obsessed with smoked salmon. I used to make salmon sandwiches every day, until one day I thought, why not put it in a wrap? This is exactly what I ended up doing. I made a delicious roll by putting smoked salmon in a healthy whole grain wrap.

Fit Girls like us need proteins to develop our muscles to the fullest and this protein rich wrap is the perfect way to get all the necessary proteins you need. I must admit, I was not a huge fan of beans at first, but over the years I have learned to eat them and I am telling you, they are a great contribution to your diet! They are packed with nutrients and make your wrap taste a lot better. Are you not a fan of tofu? Don’t worry, you can easily replace it with any kind of meat, such as chicken or fish.

All the ingredients:

  • Whole grain wraps
  • Tofu
  • Feta cheese
  • Maize
  • Tomatoes

The method of preparation:

  1. Cut the tomatoes in half.
  2. Let the moisture out of the can maize and kidney beans.
  3. Cut the tofu in small pieces.
  4. Wrap the tofu in paper tissues. Put someone heavy on it, so the moisture can get out of the tofu.
  5. Heat coconut oil in a pan and add cumin seed, salt and pepper.
  6. Bake the tofu pieces for 4 minutes or until crispy. 
  7. Put the tofu on the wrap and add the maize, kidney beans, tomatoes and feta cheese.

5x healthy bbq side dishes

No summer is a real summer without BBQ’s outside. Who doesn’t like to enjoy the sunny weather in their garden by feasting on delcious, freshly grilled foods?! I believe everyone can enjoy a good BBQ as long as they’re surrounded by the right people. This means time to gather all your best Fit Girl pals and get eatin’! Now, BBQ’s may not seem very healthy but if the sides and the sauces are on point, then the whole BBQ will be. Good news, ay? Today I’m going to show you 5 healthy bbq sides.

1. Tomato & Mozzarella

Source: Little Broken

A very simple AND delicious side? Impossible! Well, not with this phenomenon: Tomato & Mozzarella! Name me a more iconic duo??? Almost isn’t possible as this combination of ingredients is on fleek and legendary.

Ingredients (10 people):

  • 5 tomatoes
  • 2 logs of mozzarella
  • Generous bunch of fresh basil leaves
  • Olive oil
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Sea salt
  • Pepper
  • Provincial herbs

2. Pasta salad

Source: The Recipe Critic

Pasta salads are amazing as they are tasty, filling, AND healthy. A BBQ basically requires someone to make a pasta salad. Another plus point is that the larger the quantity, the cheaper it is! That’s a serious plus point when it comes to bbq’s as the meat alone can be quite expensive.

Ingredients (6 people):

  • 450 gr (16 oz) Pasta (farfalle)
  • 480 gr (17 oz) Jar of sun-dried tomatoes (drain it)
  • 1 Red bell pepper (diced)
  • 460 gr (16.5 oz) Jar of olives (drain it)
  • 340 gr (1 cup) Spinach
  • 85 gr (1/4 cup) Basil (chopped)
  • 170 gr (1/2 cup) Parmesan cheese (grated)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Oregano
  • (opitional) Pinenuts

3. Creamy rice salad

Source: Kalyn’s Kitchen

This special recipe is actually from our Fitgirlcode Guide! When I was doing the Fitgirlcode Guide I was introduced to very many new recipes and, I gotta say, this one really stuck. I thought it was very tasty and thus continued to follow this particular recipe, even after I finished the Guide.

Ingredients (8 people):

  • 510 gr (1 1/2 cup) Brown rice
  • 1 can (~170 gr/ 6 oz) Black olives
  • 1 Red bell pepper (chopped)
  • 160 gr (5 1/2 oz) Cucumber
  • 300 gr (10 oz) Cream cheese
  • 160 gr (5 1/2 oz) Lettuce
  • 160 gr (5 1/2 oz) Spring onions
  • Salt
  • Pepper

4. Bruschetta

Source: The Garlic Diaries

Okay, if you haven’t noticed it yet, I LOVE ITALIAN FOOD! After my article about risottos, I think this became quite clear (lol). But, soooo, you shouldn’t definitely add bruschettas to your list! This healthy bbq side dish will please everyone present and doesn’t get too messy on your plate (Ay, we’ve got to think about everything right?!)

Ingredients (8 people):

  • 900 gr (2 lbs) Tomatoes
  • 3 Garlic cloves
  • 5 Basil leaves (sliced)
  • 2 tsp Balsamic vinegar
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1/2 Baguette
  • Butter for the bread

5. Sweet potato fries

Source: Center Cut Cook

Are you a lover of ribs with fries? Yet you don’t want the guilt that normal fries give you? Move over and join the sweet potato side! On this side we enjoy all we eat, and most of all our BBQ’s with fries. Out of all healthy bbq sides this one has got to be the most traditional healthy bbq dish.

Ingredients (8 people):

  • 8 Sweet potatoes
  • 8 tbsp Olive oil
  • 4 tsp Parpika powder
  • 4 tsp Salt
  • 4 tsp Pepper
  • 4 tsp Rosemary

Barbeques are a great way to unite your family and/or friends! The easiest way to organize a BBQ is to have everyone bring a side dish, and that the organizer handles the meats/grilled goods. Now, we’re sure that with at least one of these healthy bbq sides you will be able to impress the whole crowd and help out the hostess lots! Are you also a bbq fan? Tell us what you’re favourite side dish is in the comments!

On a side note, I had a lot of fun making this snack (and the other snacks whose recipes I will be sharing in the newsletter), so grab your friends, partner, parent, children,… (!) and enjoy the making of the snacks as much as you will enjoy eating them.

Ingredients you will need

One of the perks of this recipe is that you will only need 3 ingredients! And all of these ingredients you will most likely already have in your kitchen.

1. 175 gr (6.2 oz) chocolate (72% cacao)

2. 200 gr (7 oz) peanut butter

3. 2 wholegrain rice cakes (you can use more if you like)

(4). Coconut oil to grease your saucepan.

Step by step instructions

1. Heat up the peanut butter in a saucepan that has a layer of coconut oil in it (to prevent the peanut butter from sticking to the bottom of the pan).

2. Chop the chocolate into small pieces.

3. Once the peanut butter has melted, add the chocolate to it and let it melt as well. Keep the heat on a low in order to avoid the mixture from burning. Also, keep stirring gently!

4. Crumble the rice cakes into the pan, and MIX!

5. After everything has melted, pour the mixture into a square mold that you’ve covered in baking paper.

6. Put it in the fridge for 1.5 hours.

7. After the wait, cut everything into 8 pieces.

8. Leave it in the fridge again for 1.5 hours or more.

9. ENJOY!!!

There you have it! Your very own homemade chocolate fudge bars. I absolutely loved making these bars, it was fun playing around with all these sweet ingredients and making something fancy out of them. I truly felt like a masterchef. haha In terms of the taste I think I did quite well, only next time I will add in more rice cakes! Overall the bars were very tasty, I simply thought that the bars were a just a tad too chocolatey. Try out the recipe and comment how it went down below.

Healthy fries

The perfect crispy French fries! I really crave some fat and salty foods sometimes, and fries are my guilty pleasure! I’m pretty sure that I’m not the only one. Unfortunately, they aren’t really healthy, as you probably already know, but they are absolutely delicious. That’s why I searched for a healthier and skinnier version. Curious what I found?

French fries made of celeriac, together with a homemade and healthier version of tzatziki. I can imagine that the idea of this version of French fries does not make your mouth water, but you will certainly be amazed by how tasteful they are!

What you need for 1 person:

  • 1 celeriac (about 500 grams / 1 pound)
  • Sea salt, pepper, garlic and paprika seasoning
  • Olive oil
  • 150 grams / 0,3 pound of yogurt or quark
  • Fresh parsley

How to make it:

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Peel the celeriac and cut into strips (fry shaped).
  • Put all the fries in a bowl and sprinkle with 3 tablespoons olive oil, sea salt, garlic and
    paprika seasoning. Toss the fries around so the seasoning covers them all.
  • Line an oven-tray with parchment paper and spread out the fries.
  • Bake the fries for 45 minutes in the oven. Caution! Turn the fries after 25 minutes.
  • Make the yogurt dressing out of yogurt, salt, garlic, pepper and freshly chopped parsley.
  • Do you want to complete the dish? Bake some chicken strips with some salt and pepper and viola!

3x eggs for breakfast

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right?! Well, I truly hope so because breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Hot or cold, extensive or minimal, sweet or savory? How your breakfast looks is completely up to you! There are so many variant foods that are appropriate to eat in the morning that you can change it up every day. What I love to eat on a sweet saturday morning: EGGS. Whether I’m hungover (lol) or not, eggs just seem to always be lying around, ready to make my day a little brighter. Here are 4 different ways to make eggs for breakfast:

1. Spinach omelet with salmon and cottage cheese

One way to boost your breakfast is with an omelet. This crêpe looking omelet is the perfect healthy breakfast for a Fit Girl. Eggs, salmon, cottage cheese, spinach, pine nuts… An omelet is just what you need if you’re feeling hungry yet you don’t want to lose track of your healthy eating habits. A slice of brown bread is never wrong to add to this recipe!

2. Scrambled eggs in avocado

Yum, yum, yum! That’s all I’m thinking right now. A simple and quick cook up of scrambled eggs mixed with some avocado, olives and spinach is a perfect and balanced way to boost your energy in the morning. Are you also an avocado-passionate Fit Girl?! ?

3. Savory vegetable pancakes with poached eggs

Well, doesn’t this just look delicious? These pancakes made from cauliflower, spring onion, broccoli, parsley, egg and milk is a beautiful alternative for the classic “pancakes for breakfast” recipe. With just a poached egg on top to top it off (and some cheese of course because… Cheese!). A saturday morning that is simple yet complex, a Fit Girl food-challenge that you can enjoy and that will be rewarding in taste and nutrition.

Are you also someone who liked to enjoy a nice egg breakfast on a saturday morning? Or do you prefer something else, tell me in the comments! I could write about it in my next article. ?

Recipe: Healthy pitas with falafel

This week my obsession for pita bread has been taking over. Pita is a treasure from the Middle East that has concurred every foodie’s heart. I love pita bread so much since it fills you up quite quickly and there are so many recipes you can make with it. And no, I am not talking about making big ass kebabs (even though they do have the word ‘abs’ in them), because they will not strengthen your Fit Girl habits. I am talking about healthy pita recipes that will keep the calorie count relatively low, fill you up, AND taste delish. Here is Fitgirlcode’s favourite pita recipe:

Falafel and pita

Interested in eating vegan? The first step to eating vegan is discovering the lovely wonders of falafel. Falafel is a deep fried ball most often made from chickpeas, and is nowadays the world’s known meat replacement. Even though you can just eat them as a snack, since they taste amazing on their own as well, I prefer to make them with pita. In our Fitgirlcode Guide we describe the recipe in full with the ingredients being pita, falafel, lettuce, tomato, cream cheese light, and low-fat yoghurt. As usual, you just stuff the ingredients in the pita pocket and there you go! Your very own vegan lunch break. ?

From burgers, to pizza, to veganism, pita is the underdog of foods and will take over your world as you begin to realize its magic. Pita, a long-lasting ingredient that can also simply be eaten as a snack with some hummus? We need more!

5x mealprep recipes that are anything but boring

Mealprepping comes with so many advantages. Not having to wake up n the morning to make your lunch because you already have a Tupperware container set for you to go. Or coming home after a long busy day and not having to go to the grocery store and then cooking on top of that. Nope, there’s a delicious dinner already set for you in the fridge. Some people prefer to cook a large amount on Sundays that will last the entire week. I’m more of the type that makes a big portion the night before and then taking the other half for lunch the next day. Whenever and whatever you do: the following recipes are the perfect additions to your mealprep recipes that you’ve already got!

Banana Bread Baby!

A few weeks ago my sport buddy gave me a very delicious and healthy recipe for banana bread. It was exactly what I was looking for! Sometimes an apple or unsalted nuts will do, but at some point you just need something to ease you sugar cravings. It`s called a banana bread, but it looks and tastes more like a cake. This is a way better snack alternative than the muesli bars you buy in the grocery store. These so-called healthy candy bars contain way more sugar than you think.

I made this banana bread in the weekend so that I’d have a healthy snack throughout the whole week. I think it’s the best invention since… well forever! And what I love the most about this cake/bread is that you can vary it as much as you want!

What you need:

  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda or 3 teaspoons baking powder

To sweeten the bread you can add seedless dates, but I prefer blueberries and/or raspberries. The last time I also added 75 gram of crushed walnuts (highly recommended), but if you are a real chocoholic you can add 50 gram of 80% dark chocolate and 30 gram of grated coconut instead of fruit. If you like to give the cake more body, add a bit of oatmeal (50 grams) to the almond flour.


  • Preheat your oven at 347°F.
  • Mash the bananas with a hand mixer or blender until smooth (if you use dates add these before you start mixing)
  • Wisk the eggs in a bowl and add a pinch of salt
  • Mix the banana mixture with the eggs
  • Add the almond flour and whatever fruits or nuts you may like en stir the mixture
  • Pour the mixture into the cake mold

Now, put it in the oven for 45 minutes and wait quietly until the bread is ready. Enjoy!

Crispy wrap with beet hummus and fried egg

Wraps are a tasty, easy and welcomed alternative to bread, salads and more. And if you fill them with hummus you are in for a tiny, but awesome lunch party. This might sound a bit over the top to you, but for a hummus addict like myself, a day without hummus is a day wasted. Okay, I’m over exaggerating a little bit. I could do 1 day without hummus, but that’s the max 😉 

Crispy wrap with beet hummus and fried egg

So it won’t come as a surprise that I am a huge fan of this crispy wrap with beet hummus and fried egg. Doesn’t it look like heaven on a plate? If you aren’t having a good day, then after this delicious wrap you will hopefully cheer up a bit!

This is what you need:

  • Whole wheat wraps
  • (Beet) hummus *
  • Herbs such as cilantro, parsley, chives, basil
  • Alfalfa or other sprouts
  • Spring onion
  • Eggs
  • Salt and pepper

*I used 1 cup of chickpeas (cooked),1 small roasted beetroot, 1 tsp cumin powder, 4 tbsp lime juice, 3 tbsp tahini, 2 cloves of garlic and a dash of olive oil. Put it all into a blender and voilà: pretty pink hummus to die for!

This is how to make your wrap:

Put the wrap in a dry frying pan and let it brown on both sides until it’s lightly crispy. Meanwhile, fry an egg. Spread the beet hummus onto the wrap and top it off with a generous amount of sprouts. Sprinkle some herbs and spring onions on top of it. Place the egg on top of the sprouts and season with salt and pepper.

Bon appetit!

Healthy candy balls

Who doesn’t love snacking? I noticed that many of you choose snacks like sweet protein bars. These products are made to believe that they’re healthy, but unfortunately this is not always true. Most tend to contain a lot of sugar which we all know isn’t very healthy. And although I like to snack, I’d rather not eat products with added sugars or unnatural substances. That’s why I started to look for products that are not only tasty, but also super healthy.

”Powersnack balls”, that’s what I call these delicious and healthy little candy balls made of dates, nuts, pits, coconut and MACA. It’s a real power snack because it’s filled with healthy nutrients, fibres, vitamins and minerals. And why did I add MACA? Well, MACA is a tuberous plant that originates from Peru. First of all, it is a source that stabilizes your nervous- and muscular system, and keeps it balanced too. Also, it stimulates the production of hormones in your body. Last but not least, it stimulates your libido (don’t let your man read this ;)). Not entirely unimportant, right? Yes ladies, this little snack does a lot of good to our body!

What you need:

– 200 gram of dates
– 50 gram of oatmeal
– 50 gram of pumpkin pits
– 50 gram of sunflower pits
– 50 gram of raw cacao powder
– 3 tablespoons of maca powder
grated coconut
– 2 raspberries

How to make it:

– Add all the ingredients, except the raspberries and coconut, into a food processor and pulse until everything is well mixed.
– Scoop out the ”dough” with a tablespoon and use your hands to roll the mixture into small balls.
– To make the pink coating, blend the grated coconut and rasperries together. Roll the balls in the grated coconut mixture.

Enjoy! 🙂

Vegan walnut pesto

Question: what is better than pesto? Homemade pesto! It is super easy to make and absolutely delicious. Lately I’ve been addicted to a simple walnut pesto that is even suited for vegans due to the use of nutritional yeast instead of parmesan cheese.

Nutritional yeast does not only have a yummy, nutty and cheesy flavor, but it’s also packed with nutrition. Nutritional yeast is a great source of B-vitamins which makes it perfect for vegans and vegetarians. But, this pesto does not only hit the spot for vegans!

For this vegan walnut pesto, you’ll need:

  • 100 g walnuts
  • 2 big handfuls fresh basil
  • 8 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 3 large garlic cloves
  • some pepper and sea salt


Now what?

Grab your food processor and simply put all the ingredients in it. Pulse the ingredients until you have a semi-smooth consistency; I personally like it when the walnuts don’t get chopped up too finely. If you like some extra crunch, first try to blend 75 grams of walnuts with all the other ingredients until smooth and add the other 25 grams later on. Serving tip when you’re eating this pesto with pasta; use the nutritional yeast as an extra topping. Enjoy!

5x zucchini noodles

One thing that I love is eating pasta. So, when I try and lose some weight pasta is the thing that I miss the most.

It has a similar texture, is gluten-free, low-carb and healthy! Take a look at some of my favorite recipes below.
