Banana Oats Chocolate Chip Cookies

I always like a good chocolate chip cookie. I do not have a particular favorite dish or food (yes, I know) because it’s like having to chose your favorite one among your kids (just to let you know, my mama would pick me obviously if she had to chose). However, I always enjoy a nice cookie. A real one. Not an industrial one. All buttery and sweet and soft and crunchy at the same time. Actually, this recipe is probably blasphematory to the real deal, but I did like it. And it involves bananas πŸ‘Œ

Sunflower/Pumkin Granola Bars

Making things from scratch is cheaper, healthier, funnier, and smells better (who doesn’t like the fresh smell of a cake straight out the oven ? πŸ˜‹). And man, that feeling of accomplishment if what you made ends up delicious. I made these bars yesterday very fast, I improvised and they ended up really good. Hope you’ll like them too!

Oh and…these bars are refined sugar free 😊

Sunflower/Pumkin Granola Bars (serves 8)


Ingredients

1 1/4 cup oats // 1/4 cup raisins // 1/2 tbsp pumkin seeds // 1/4 cup sunflower seeds // 1/3 cup honey //2 tbsp softened butter 

Instructions:

Mix all the ingredients together // Put in a 20cmx20cm (approximately) dish and with a knife cut the slices (it will make cutting them later much easier) // Bake for about 20min at 360F/180C, or until the top is light brown // Let it cool down and pour 50g of melted chocolate (I used 85%) on top

White Chocolate Pancakes

Perfection, if you ask me.

After you eat those pancakes, you will wonder how you never thought of mixing white chocolate with pancakes, cause white chocolate is bae. Actually, I used to prefer it to milk chocolate as a kid. Now I like very dark chocolate (because Lindt 99% is the best thing ever πŸ˜‹).

Here’s the deal.

Ingredients


1 cup flour // 1/2 tsp baking powder // 3 tbsp sugar // 100g melted white chocolate // 1 egg + tbsp egg white // 3/4 cup milk // a pinch of salt

In a large bowl, mix the flour with the baking powder, sugar and salt // add the egg and egg white // add the melted white chocolate // serve with maple syrup 😊

Moistest Banana Bread

If I had to chose to eat only one cake for the rest of my life, it would be banana bread, hands down. I mean, it has bananas in it and bananas are good for you, which removes part of the guilt. Tbh guys, I often improvise when I make cakes. That way, I feel they have more “soul” to them. Anyone feels the same way?? 😁 I had two bananas which were getting blacker and blacker, so instead of throwing them away like the average Joe will do, I decided to keep them and make something more purposeful of them. Hope yoh like the cake as I and my flatmate did ❀

Banana Bread (Serves 10 or 12)

1 + 1/2 cup flour // 1 tsp baking powder // 2/3 cup sugar // 2 medium ripped bananas, mashed // 1 egg, beaten // 1/3 cup softened butter // 1/2 tsp of cinnamon

Instructions

In a large bowl, add the flour, baking powder, sugar and cinnamon. Mix together // Add the mashed bananas, egg and butter // Bake for about 30 min in a preheated oven at 360F // Enjoy 😎
