Coconut-Banana oatmeal recipe!

Today I woke up with a beautiful view! All full of snow, just amazing! As I’m from Spain I’ve never seen so much snow hahaha. So beautiful! But now let’s go to the recipe; I was a bit unsure about this combination, but the result was just perfect! A creamy oatmeal with coconut flakes and some banana chunks, delicious! So let’s see the recipe;

Ingredients:

-1 ripe banana

-1 cup milk (250 ml)

-1/2 cup oats (40-50 gr)

-1 tbsp. brown sugar or honey

-2-3 drops vanilla extract

-pinch salt

Topping:

-1 tbsp. coconut flakes

-Few slices of the banana

Instructions:

In a small sauce-pan at medium-heat, put the oats and the milk and stir until it starts to thicken, then put the sugar, the vanilla extract and stir well until is all well combined. Then put the banana cut in slices (reserve few slices for the topping). Start to smash the banana and stir well. The banana will start to melt but is faster if you smash it a bit. Stir well until the banana is melted in the oats, then serve in a cereal bowl and top with the banana slices and the tbsp. coconut. Enjoy!

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!

Best Nutella-Vanilla-Cookie Oatmeal recipe!

As you might know I used to hate cooked oatmeal, I always said baked is the only yummy way to eat it… But this recipe has made me change my mind! You know, I tryed a lot of oatmeal or porridge recipes and they were always so bad… But now I understend why, where was the sweetness?!? As I started to try to make porridge in a really bad place with my ed, I always took the lower calorie option… Only water and oats. Really bad! So I’ve lerned the lesson, always use sweetener! And more if you have a sweet tooth. But now stop ”talking” and let’s start with this amazing recipe!

Ingridients:

-1/2 oats (40gr)

-1 cup milk (250ml)

-2 package vanilla sugar (16gr)

-Vanilla extract (as much as you like, but do not overdo haha)

For the topping:

3 vanilla cookies (or more I would use more, but I hadn’t any cookie more)

1 tsp nutella (This gives more sweetness and for me is a must in this recipe, I don’t know if without would be that good!)

Instructions:

Put in a small casserol at high heat the oats and the milk, stir well untill it has the best consistency for you. Then remove it from the heat, put the vanilla sugar and  the vanilla extract and stir well. Put the porridge in a bowl and top with cookies and nutella. The best way to eat it is, mixing good the nutella and the cookies in the bowl so that all the flavors are spread in the whole porridge. And ofcourse, enjoy!

(The photo does not have the nutella because it looks bad, but I puted it after making the photo)
