So, let’s see the recipe!

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Ingredients:

½ cup natural salted peanut butter
¼ cup maple syrup
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon blackstrap molasses
¼ teaspoon salt
2 ½ cups rolled oats
1 cup cornflakes
⅓ cup raw peanuts
⅓ cup chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 340°F (170°C). Line a baking tray with non-stick paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the peanut butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, molasses and salt. Add the oats and cornflakes, and mix until completely combined. Mix in the peanuts.
  3. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking tray. Bake for 18 – 20 minutes, occasionally removing the tray from the oven and mixing the granola around with a fork (about two or three times). Keep an eye on it, as granola can burn easily. Allow the granola to cool completely.
  4. Once cooled, stir in the chocolate and store in an airtight container. Enjoy with yogurt and fruit, or just by the handful.

Healthy Croissants recipe!

Well, I have just 3 words for this recipe; Yummy and healthy. Just perfect!

This croissants are crispy and the flavor is fantastic and yes this is a healthier option, for this persons that are trying to eat healthier! Well I always think a healthy diet/lifestyle has healthy and unhealthy food, but this is another topic that I pretty much think I will talk about. But now let’s see this amazing recipe!

IMG_3600

Ingredients:

Fat layer:
100 g unsalted butter
125 g plain cream cheese

Dough:
250 g whole wheat flour
1 egg (vegan option: 1 tsp. yeast+1 cup lukewarm water)
4 tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt

Note: Maby you will need some extra water to make the dough workable, make sure this water is not cold just at room temperature.

Instructions:

Softened the butter and cream cheese, and stir together to combine. Roll into a large, flat square about 6″ (~15 cm) wide between two pieces of plastic wrap. Store on a flat surface in the fridge for 15 to 30 minutes to let it firm up.

Meanwhile, prepare the dough by stirring all ingredients together and kneading it into an smooth, elastic ball. Roll out into a rectangle about 7″ by 14″ or 17.5 by 35 cm large. The idea is to get it slightly larger than twice the size of the butter layer.

Place the chilled butter layer on one side of the rolled out dough and fold the other side over so that the butter is sandwiched between two layers of dough. Make sure there are no air pockets between dough and butter and pinch the sides to seal the butter in.

Roll the dough out a bit so that it becomes a rectangle with one set of edges longer than the original mesure. Fold into three like a letter, wrap loosely with plastic wrap and place in the fridge to chill for anywhere between 1 to 8 hours. Repeat this roll, fold, and chill process again three to four more times.

When the final dough has had time to chill and rise slightly in the fridge, it is ready to be rolled out, cut, and shaped into a croissant. On a floured surface, roll out dough into a layer just less than 0.5″ or 1 cm thick.

Cut into triangles and add a small slit at the base of the triangle to help with even baking. Roll into crescents starting at the base, and place on a lined baking sheet. Allow to rise at room temperature for 1 to 2 hours and bake in a 350F or 175C  oven for 20 – 25 min. Let it cool just 5-8 min and enjoy!

Best recipe Banana Pancakes! (Healthy and for one)

IMG_3084

Do you remember the recipe of the banana-oatmeal pancakes? This is the improved version of them! You have to try them, these are amazing! And they are healthy and just for you. The problem that I had with the other pancakes, was that they are really difficult to flip as they contain any eggs and the consistency is more liquid than these recipe. So of course is better when you make nice round pancakes than pancakes with a strange form! But it’s not only that better, the texture of these pancakes are like the really ones! Really fluffy and spongy. The taste is also really good, and the are also quite good plain! But I prefer always to put some kind of syrup hahaha. So let’s see this amazing recipe!

IMG_3094

Ingredients:

~Single serving (about 7 medium-small pancakes)~

-1 ripe banana (important that the banana is ripe, the more ripe the banana is the more sweet it taste!)

-2 eggs

-2 tbsp. flour (30 gr, you can use all the types of flour, but if the flour has some taste I don’t know if  it will taste good)

-some oil (for grease the pan)

Instructions:

Put your pan at high heat, then in a cereal bowl mash the banana (don’t mash it too much, as the consistency has to be more thick than liquid). When the banana is mashed put the 2 eggs and beat until all is well combined. Then add the 2 tbsp. of flour, then stir until there are any lumps. At this point the pan will be warm enough, so low to medium-heat. With a paper towel spread some oil (don’t omit this step if you want to flip your pancakes!). Then put about 2 tbsp. of the dough, make a round form and wait until the other side is golden-brown, then flip and wait until the pancake is also golden-brown in the other side. Put you pancakes in a plate and put some kind of sauce or syrup. In this recipe I recommend to put chocolate sauce as the banana taste really good with chocolate! Enjoy!

Note!

Is really important that after each pancake you grease your pan, sometimes I forgot it to grease my pan and It was really difficult to flip them, so don’t forget to grease your pan after EACH pancake!

Healthy Banana-Oatmeal Pancakes recipe! (For one)

IMPROVED RECIPE HERE

Today I woke up and the cravings for pancakes were really strong… So I decided to make some! But like always something has to be wrong, I didn’t have eggs and I already puted all the ingredients in the bowl! So I had to improvise and I thought,what kind of ingredient could be as an egg substitute? Bananas! And so is how I invented this amazing recipe! And the good thing also is, that this recipe is only for you! I love single serving recipes, you too? Anyway, let’s see it;

IMG_2982

Ingredients:

-30gr oatmeal flour or all-purpose flour

-1 banana (ripe will be always better, if your is green don’t try to make the recipe! Wait until the banana is at least yellow)

-pinch of salt

-2 tbsp. plain yogurt

-2-3 drops vanilla extract

-1 tbsp. honey

-1/4 tsp. baking powder

-Milk (as much you need)

Instructions:

In a cereal bowl mix the dry ingredients and in another one the wet ingridients (excluding the milk). When all the ingredients are good mixed, mix the wet ingredients with the dry ones and put enough milk to have a thick but at the same time liquid consistency. In small pan, first at high heat spread some veg or coconut oil (all the types of oils or butters work well). Then put about 1 or 2 tbsp. of the dough and when start to bubble flip it when the other side is golden brown remove it from the pan and put it in a plate. Now that the pan is warm, lower it to medium-heat. This recipe makes about 4 small pancakes. I prefere to make the a bit small because is easier to flip, as this recipe is a bit sticky I really recomend to make them this way. As a topping I recomed to put some maple syrup, honey or like me some chocolate syrup, delicious. And of course enjoy!
