Chocolate banana bread

Hey guys!

I’ve made banana bread for the very first time yesterday, the chocolate version. It looks very unhealthy but the best part is: it isn’t!
It’s a recipe from Rens Kroes, love her.

What do you need?:
-3tbsp chia seeds
-4tbsp cacao powder
-120mL oat milk
-3 little ripe bananas (about 350gr)
-120 mL coconut oil (melted)
-5dates (medjool)
-200gr oat flour
-2tsp baking soda
-1tsp salt
-1tsp vanilla powder (without sugar)
-1tbsp lemon juice

How do you do it?
Put the chia seeds in 150 mL water so they become soft. In the meantime you put the bananas, oat milk, melted coconut oil and the lemon juice in a blender. Mix it all together. After this you add the dates (without the core, ofcourse) and mix again. After this you put all the dry ingredients in a bowl and you make sure it becomes a mixture (just go through it with a spoon or with your hands). Add the sticky mixture from the blender, to the dry mixture and as last you add the soft chia seeds. Mix everything reeeally good. Swab some coconut oil in the baking tray and use some baking paper (so the bread doesn’t stick to the baking tray). Put in the oven for 45 minutes at 180 degrees.

Enjoy!

Pizza with oatmeal crust

Hey you!

I’ve tried a new recipe yesterday. Since I’m a huge pizzalover, I’ve been looking for a healthier alternative and I’ve found this one. It’s a recipe from the sisters from Chicks Love Food. The crust contains just oatmeal, water and 1egg: amazing!

What do you need?
-130gr oatmeal
-1egg
-100mL water
-1 little aubergine
– pasta sauce (only tomato, no meat)
-mozarella

How to do it?
You blend 50gr oatmeal, afterwards you add the rest of the oatmeal to this and you mix it with 100mL of water and 1 egg. Mix until you have a sticky mixture. Put the mixture on a baking tray, in a pizza form (0.5 cm thick). Bake for 10 minutes (200 degrees).
Put some olive oil onto the dough and afterwards the tomato sauce. Put as much aubergine and mozarella on top as you like (cut the aubergine thin enough). Bake again for 30minutes: done!

What do you need?
-2 eggs
-1 banana
-nutmeg
-cinnamon
-a slice of bread (around 2.5 cm thick)
-raspberries
-yoghurt

How to do it?

New granola recipes ♥

Hey guys,

This week I made two types of granola: one with dark chocolate and a touch of coffee, the other one with almond and spiced cookie.

The first one: chocolate and coffee
What do you need?
-200gr oatmeal
– 1 little cup of coffee
– as much chocolate as you like (I use 86% cacao)
– 50gr almond flakes
– 100 gr nuts (wallnut, almond,…)
– agave syrup
– sea salt
– coconut oil

How to do it?
Melt the chocolate and the coconut oil and mix it with the oatmeal so it becomes a sticky mixture. Afterwards you add the coffee and just a little bit of agave syrup and a little bit of sea salt. Mix it up and put it in the oven for 20minutes (160 degrees) and make sure you stirr every 5minutes. In the meantime you grill the nuts and flakes (with some coconut oil). When they become a little bit brown, they’re ready. Mix these with the oven baked oatmeal. Afterwards you can melt some more of the chocolate and mix this with the granola so you have an extra layer of chocolate. Delicious!

Almond and spiced cookie granola
What do you need?
-200gr of oatmeal
-100mL agave syrup
-4 tbsp melted coconut oil
-100gr nuts
-50gr almond flakes
-spiced cookie (I use herbs of these)

How to do it?
Exactly the same as the previous one, only now you cover the oatmeal with melted coconut oil and the agave syrup. Put enough spiced cookie into it because you lose some of the flavour while baking. While the nuts and flakes are getting grilled, you can add some spiced cookie too.

Enjoy!

Cake for breakfast!

Hey you,

I made a cake containing oatmeal, banana, raspberries and lots of nuts. This is perfect for breakfast (for example with some yoghurt as a side or just the cake as itself).

What do you need?
– 400 grams of oatmeal
– 3 bananas
– 4 eggs
– 200 mL water
– 2 tsp cinnamon
– 2 tbsp honey
– 250 gr frozen berries (I prefer raspberries)
– 150 gr nuts (those you prefer)

How to do it?
– First you weigh the oatmeal and you add the bananas to this. Flatten them with a fork and make sure you have a sticky mixture.
– Add the eggs, water, honey and cinnamon.
– Last but not least: add the berries and nuts. Stirr very good and when you have a good mixture, you can put this in a cake form (! Add some coconut oil to this before you put the mixture in it, so it doesn’t get to sticky when it gets out of the oven).

Bake in the oven for like 40 minutes by 175 degrees.

Enjoy!

Biggest sweet potato addict alive

Hey there,

for lunch I prepared a stuffed sweet potato. It’s been quite a long time that I’ve eaten sweet potato so this was needed, haha 😉

What do you need?
– 1 sweet potato
– humus
– avocado
– spring onion
– pepper, salt
– chive

How to prepare?
Very easy: just make some little holes in the potato with a fork or knive and put it in the microwave for like 10 minutes. When it’s ready you can cut it through and fill it up.
First I add the humus, after this the avocado and at last the herbs. First flatten the avocado so it’s creamy. Finish with some pepper and salt!

Enjoy

The herbs I used are from our own little kitchen garden!

Fish and meat make a great combo!

Hey you,

Last weekend I made this dish for the very first time! Quinoa with onion, peas and parmesan (makes it creamy: so nice!). I served this with shrimps and some serrano ham (sounds weird at first but it fits this dish perfectly!).

What do you need? (2pers):
– 100gr quinoa
– 1 onion
– peas (depends on how much you want in your quinoa)
– parmesan (as much as you like!)
– 5 shrimps each
– garlic, pepper, salt
– serrano ham

How to prepare?:
-put the onion in a cooking-pot with some olive oil
– add the quinoa and some water and make sure the quinoa gets enough water to become soft (add some bouillon, gives a nice flavour)
-grill the shrimps, add some pepper, salt and garlic to get a good taste
-when the quinoa is ready you add some parmesan and you stirr until you get a cheesy mixture, finish with pepper and salt
-Put everything on a plate: top the quinoa with some ham and on top of that you put the shrimps.

Serve with a good glass of wine and… attack!
Enjoy

Courgetti for diner

Hey you,

yesterday I made courgetti with avocado cream, chicken, pesto, rucola and some tomatoes. So good (and easy)!

You start with grilling the chicken. When it’s almost finished you put some pesto on top of it. Afterwards you add the courgetti with some olive oil on top of it. Wait until the courgetti is soft.

The avocado cream:
Make sure the avocado is ripe so you can easily make a smooth cream out of it. Just flatten it with a fork, add some salt and pepper and: ready!

Finish with some rucola and tomatoes. Ready to eat!

Enjoy,

Elisa
