Been a While!

It's been a while since I have posted on my recipe blog. Just haven't found the motivation, until recently, when someone posted on my Facebook page about how my recipes helped them so here I am with an awesome banana bread recipe!

Gluten Free Banana Bread



INGREDIENTS

Dry Ingredients:
3/4 cup coconut flour
½ cup gluten free oats, ground
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp sea salt
1/4 cup coconut flakes

Wet Ingredients:
3 medium bananas
2 large eggs
2 egg whites
½ cup coconut milk
½ cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp pure vanilla


Preheat oven to 350F; Grease a loaf pan or springform pan well with coconut oil and set aside. In a small bowl mix dry ingredients and set aside. Mash bananas well, then mix in rest of wet ingredients until smooth. Fold into dry ingredients and mix with a rubber spatula until combined. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Place in the oven and bake 40-50 minutes, until the center is set (a toothpick inserted in the middle of the loaf should come out clean).

Set loaf on a wire rack and let it cool in the pan for about 5 minutes before unmolding it. Finish cooling on the rack and transfer to the refrigerator, where it will keep for up to a week in an airtight container.

You can spread this on toast, rice cakes, crackers, or just eat by the spoonful like I do 😃

Sunflower Butter Chocolate Spread

1 tbsp cocoa
1-2 tbsp water
1-2 scoops stevia or 1/2-1 tbsp honey
2 tbsp sunflower seed butter

Mix the cocoa and water until smooth. The mixture should not be too thick or too runny. Add the sweetener, then mix in the sunflower seed butter. Mix until smooth. Eat 😃

High Protein Vegetarian Loaf

This was delicious. I'm not a vegetarian but I would eat this everyday. This dish even impressed my husband. And this was super easy to make! Why buy store bought frozen vegetarian dishes when you can easily make your own?

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small onion, diced
1 (15 ounce) can chick peas drained well
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained well
1/2 cup frozen peas
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp thyme
1 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Sea salt to taste
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 cup ground oats
3/4 cup shredded cheese of choice
1/4 cup barbecue sauce(optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.In a large skillet add oil, turn to medium-low heat and sauté onions until tender, about 10 minutes. Add beans and peas, continue to sauté until beans soften up. Add all the spices and stir to combine. Combine in a large mixing bowl bean mixture, ground oats and cheese. Mix and then mash with a fork or potato masher.




Line a loaf pan with tin foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray, add bean mixture and shape into a loaf. Bake for 40 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to set 5 minutes.




Cut into 8 slices and carefully remove each slice with a spatula and add BBQ sauce. I ate just on its own and it was delicious!

Healthier Banana Bread

I had way too many bananas in my house, so I decided to try to make a healthier version of banana bread. It turned out great! In fact I made regular banana bread the next day for a few skeptical people, and not only did my version taste exactly the same with lower calories, I didn't feel so great after eating a slice of the unhealthy version. I was glad to compare the two, and was much happier with mine.

I'm sure you can just use all oats in this recipe too, or rice flour, or another type of flour. Next time all oats for me!




Healthier Banana Bread


1 cup flour
1 cup ground up oats
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup milk of choice
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1-2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp lemon juice
2-3 scoops Now Stevia
3 mashed bananas

1/4 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine dry ingredients, and mix well. In a separate bowl, combine wet ingredients and mix into dry. Add the raisins last. Pour into a greased loaf pan or spring form pan and cook for 40-50 minutes, depending on how gooey you want it. Let cool on a wire rack before slicing.
