European (Sunday) Breakfast Rolls

0 comments

I have lived a long time abroad and hence (with pleasure) adopted the breakfast and brunch “habits” from the countries I lived in. But, I recently spend a bit of time with my sister and they savor and live for European (Sunday) Breakfast Rolls. See in Germany, we tend to have rolls for breakfast. We put on them delicious dips, spreads, jams, or ham and cheese and likely have some eggs on the side. Since the prices for rolls (at least here in Germany) have skyrocketed, this recipe is also perfect to quickly do yourself (and save some money along the way 😉).

Why did I add the word “Sunday” in there? Because for Germans Sundays are for relaxation, enjoyment, and indeed, long breakfasts 😉. The really good news about this recipe is that it can absolutely be added not just to your breakfast bread recipes, but even to your breakfast quick bread recipes. Because this recipe does not require any yeast, or rising up (which basically means no need to prep in advance OR wait for your delicious breakfast roll!!). Which also means you can still wake up Sunday morning and decide to make these – win win in my books 😍.

Sincerely, these rolls also smell so good around the house 😍. We made them the other weekend and every one came flocking to the kitchen happily ready to tug into freshly made bread.

Why are these European (Sunday) Breakfast Rolls good for you?

Oats

Oats are one of my favorite whole grains, as they are both versatile and cheap. They grow in fields, just like barley or wheat does. Oats are fan of cooler summers and plenty of rain. They are usually harvested twice a year – August and spring time. Oats are naturally gluten-free. However, they are oftentimes manufactured in a facility with other glutenous products and hence cross contamination can occur. If you do suffer from celiac disease, be sure to buy certified gluten-free oats. Oats are high in manganese, phosphorous, magnesium, copper, iron, and zinc. They also contain quite a bit of protein and fiber. Whole oats are rich in antioxidants, in particular polyphenols. Research shows that the antioxidants found in oats may help in lowering blood pressure. This is due them increasing the production of nitric acid, which in turn, widens blood vessels and allows for an easier blood vessel flow.

As mentioned above, oats are super high in fiber. But not just any fiber. Oats contain a fiber called beta-glucan. This soluble fiber is super beneficial for our bodies for a variety of reasons. Next to making us feeling full for longer, it also may reduce our blood sugar and insulin responsiveness. But it also does something else really cool (at least I find it cool 🤣). It reduces “bad” and overall cholesterol levels. And it does so, by binding cholesterol in bile, which means that it does not float around the bloodstream any longer. Oats may also prevent “bad” cholesterol from oxidation by reducing the number of free radicals in our bodies. All of this is also amazing for our heart health – and we are getting it from such a small grout. Not too bad – am I right 😉?!

How can I adjust these European (Sunday) Breakfast Rolls to my dietary requirements?

This recipe is gluten-free, and nut-free. As it contains oats and dairy from the quark (greek yogurt) and eggs, it is sadly neither suitable for the paleo or vegan lifestyle.
