HEALTHY 8 ingredient BANANA BREAD.
.
I was just craving something sweet last night as I was watching Ratatouille (Yes the Disney movie) and since I am leaving for break soon I had just about nothing to work with except with some flour, sugar, overripe bananas, baking soda, aquafaba (leftover chickpea juice), maple syrup, some slivered almonds, cocoa powder, cinnamon, and coconut oil, but turns out that’s all I needed for this recipe! I made this in about 5 minutes popped it in the oven for 45 mins and ate about half of it right when it came out of the oven, after topping it with plenty of banana slices and drizzling it with maple syrup. I was so surprised by how good this was. I mean it was amazing (me eating 1/2 of it as evidence). If you want to give this recipe a try (which I recommend you do) scroll down!
Recipe:
-6 tablespoons of aquafaba
-2-3 ripe bananas
-1/4 cup water or plant based milk
-1/4 cup coconut oil
-1/2- 3/4 cup of sugar: brown, cane, coconut, etc.
-1/8 cup maple syrup (optional)
-2 cups flour (I used whole wheat, but oat of regular will work too)
-1 tsp baking soda
-1/8 cup cocoa powder (optional)
-3 tsps cinnamon (optional)
-3 tsps vanilla extract
-vanilla bean extract **
-1 tsp salt
-almonds to top
* I got vanilla bean extract from Trader Joe’s. You can use the tiniest bit and it adds so much flavor.
.
Instructions:
-whip aquafaba until white peaks form
-add banana and mash
-add all other ingredients and mix
-place in bread pan or reg cake pan like I did and coat with coconut oil to make sure it doesn’t stick
-bake at 350 for 45-50 mins until toothpick comes out clean
ENJOY!

This dish truly made me 🙂

The perfect combination of sweet and spicy, air fried plantains, what could be better?!? To make this dish it cost me under $5 (and I had plenty of pepper and chickpeas to save for another recipe). For this recipe I used my leftover sriracha tahini sauce that I used in my previous kale salad. To give it an extra kick, and add some Mexican flavors, but if that doesn’t appeal to you, just add more coconut milk and some tahini (optional).

Pizza Fig + Arugula With it’s sweet and savory appeal this pizza had me wanting to take a bite of it right when it came out of the oven! I am a huge fan of the sweet and savory combo especially on pizzas so I added the figs and balanced them with the fresh mozzarella cheese and arugula. I also used Trader Joe’s flatbread pizza crust (in the refrigerated section) which made this recipe even easier! Stay tuned for tomorrow’s pizza recipe (you get a sneak peak in the pic) See the full recipe below . .

Ingredients:
-figs
-arugula
-pesto
-yellow onion
-pizza crust

Option: top it off with Trader Joe’s balsamic glaze
Cooking tips: I just put all of the toppings on the pizza and stuck it in the oven at 350 for about 30 minutes. If you want you can sauté the onions a bit before to make them more crispy and cooked through, but I like the added crunch they gave! You can also grill this pizza!
