Step into Comfort: Exploring Cosyology by Contura

What a difference a stove makes. A cup of tea, family time or a good book - made all the more pleasurable by a glowing fire. A stove from Contura provides tranquillity, inspiration and peace of mind. It brings people together. It fills you with a special feeling. It’s that feeling of cosiness that we love to embrace here in Sweden. Contura has been adding cosiness to people’s lives for more than 50 years. We believe that building more relaxation into our daily lives is beneficial to everyone’s health and general well-being.

Start the day with a great breakfast

Breakfast sets the tone for the day. A delicious and nutritious breakfast gives you energy and an opportunity to spend time with your family. Even if you’re short of time, there are plenty of fast and fun ways to vary what you eat. Enjoy reading our tips!

Breakfast cookies

Breakfast cookies

Cookies for breakfast sound great, don’t you think? Especially if they’re good for you. These cookies can even be made a day in advance.

Breakfast cookies x10

2 small, ripe bananas

100 g unsweetened peanut butter

175 g muesli or granola

1/2 tbsp agave syrup

150 g frozen blueberries

Preheat the oven to 175°C. Peel and mash the bananas in a bowl. Mix with all the other ingredients. Using two spoons, shape the dough into 10 cookies and place on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Bake in the middle of the oven for 20-25 minutes. Leave to cool.

Overnight oats

Overnight oats

Trendy, simple and delicious. Overnight oats is a cold porridge that is simple to make and can be enjoyed in a variety of ways. Unlike hot porridge, overnight oats porridge qualifies as raw food and retains nutrients better.

Overnight oats 1 portion

50 g porridge oats

100 ml milk of your choice

0.5 tsp cinnamon and/or cardamom for more flavour.

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl or jar. Place in the fridge overnight. In the morning, top with berries, fruit or nuts!

Almond butter

Almond butter

Almond butter contains more protein and beneficial polyunsaturated fat than regular butter or margarine. It is also delicious and has a distinct nutty flavour. And it keeps for quite a long time in the refrigerator!

1 jar of almond butter

300 g whole almonds, skin on

4 pinches of sea salt

50 ml rapeseed oil

Blend all the ingredients to a smooth creamy consistency. Serve on toast, topped with slices of banana.

Dry logs for Winter

Damp logs burn poorly, give off less heat and are not good for the environment. Logs should not have a moisture content of more than 20%. They need to be dried correctly! It is common for logs to be stored under a tarpaulin. But this traps the moisture. Good airflow is essential. Ideally logs need to season for at least two years.

Cosy time Swedish style

A cup of coffee and a bun – central to the Swedish culture of cosiness. Did you know that Swedes spend about 240 hours a year sipping coffee and nibbling buns? An average coffee break lasts 24 minutes outside of work and 14 minutes in the workplace. Swedes love coffee, drinking more than 3 cups a day on average.

Best cup of tea

A steaming cup of tea makes an evening by the fire even cosier. But there are so many different types of tea. Watch the movie and learn more about making the best cup of tea.
