Blueberry Banana Bread

I was browsing through my archive of photos the other day, and I stumbled upon this old favourite. A really moist and delicious blueberry banana bread. Wish I could make it appear in front of me right this second!

Ingredients
4 ripe bananas
1,5 dl plant milk
1 tsp white vinegar
0,5 dl canola oil
4 dl plain flour
0,5 tsp cinnamon
0,5 tsp cardamom
0,5 tsp ginger
1,5 dl brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 dl blueberries

Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees. Line a loaf pan with baking tray paper.
Mash the bananas in a big bowl and mix with plant milk, vinegar and canola oil.
In a separate bowl, mix flour, spices, sugar and baking soda.
Sift the flour mixture into the banana mix and mix until combined.
Carefully fold the blueberries in. Pour the batter into the pan.
Bake in the oven for about an hour. Let the bread rest and cool off for at least 30 minutes before cutting it in slices.

Another red and pink fruit platter! I’ll make the most of it before the cherry blossoms fall off the tree. Watermelon, apple, banana and raspberry – simple yet delicious. Happy weekend, Insta-friends!

Lemon & Poppy Seed Pancakes

I haven’t posted pancakes in ages, even though we have them quite often. But here’s a stack for #pancakesunday! Lemon & poppy seed is often used in cakes and muffins, but works just as well in pancakes. Here’s my go to recipe:

2 ripe bananas
2 dl oat milk
1 dl rolled oats
0,5 dl aquafaba
2 dl plain flour
3 tsp baking powder
0,5 dl canola oil (other other neutral oil)
2-3 tbsp lemon juice + zest
3 tbsp poppy seeds
a pinch of salt

Soak the oats in oat milk for 5-10 minutes. Mix everything in a food processor until the batter is very smooth. Fry on medium heat until golden on both sides. Enjoy your Sunday!

Fruit Platter

Let’s indulge a little! I decided to take the kids’ fruit platter up a notch. Clementine and apple wedges dipped in dark chocolate. Kiwi and banana sliced with chocolate drizzle. While the chocolate was still soft I sprinkled the fruit with shredded coconut, chopped peanuts and hundreds and thousands. At last I added a handful of blueberries, a passion fruit and a kiwi. Yummy!

Chocolate Banana Bread

I did a long overdue inventory and got my freezer organised today. Apparently, I’ve been baking a lot lately. I should host a freezer clean out “fika”. Check my Stories to see what’s up for grabs! Among other things, I found a few slices of chocolate banana bread, and realised I never posted it on the blog. So here it it comes! Super moist and rich.

Ingredients
3 ripe bananas
1,5 dl plant milk
0,5 dl aquafaba
1 tsp white vinegar
0,5 dl canola oil
4 dl plain flour
4 tbsp cacao powder
0,5 tsp cinnamon
0,5 tsp cardamom
0,5 tsp ginger
1,5 dl brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
75 g dark chocolate

• Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees. Line a loaf pan with baking tray paper.
• Mash the bananas in a big bowl and mix with plant milk, vinegar, aquafaba and canola oil.
• In a separate bowl, mix flour, cacao, spices, sugar and baking soda.
• Sift the flour mixture into the banana mix and mix until combined.
• Coarsely chop the chocolate and mix with the batter.
• Pour the batter into the pan and sprinkle with some chocolate.
• Bake in the oven for about an hour. Let the bread cool off for at least 30 minutes before cutting it in slices.

Lemon & Cardamom Pancakes

I love taking my heavy mortar and pestle out and grind cardamom. The scent in the kitchen is just the best. Cardamom is really lovely in combination with lemon, so made pancakes with these flavours and served them with persimmon and golden kiwi. Wish you could smell it through your screens!

2 ripe bananas
2 dl oat milk
1 dl rolled oats
0,5 dl aquafaba
2 dl plain flour
3 tsp baking powder
a pinch of salt
0,5 dl oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
lemon zest
2 tsp ground cardamom

Soak the oats in oat milk for 5-10 minutes. Mix everything in a food processor. Fry on medium heat on both sides until golden.

Plum & Passion Fruit Smoothie Bowl

Summer seems so far away! This smoothie bowl reminds me of when the mornings were light and the temperatures warm. I used frozen plums from our garden and mixed it with frozen banana and a splash of oat milk. Then I topped it with granola, flaked almonds and passion fruit for that tropical summer vibe.

Christmas Smoothie

Merry Christmas to all of you, who like me, celebrate today on Christmas Eve! I hope you all have a lovely day, no matter how you to spend it. The only snow we’ll see this year is in the freezer which needs defrosting… so here’s a Christmas smoothie with frozen banana, strawberries, pear, beetroot powder and oat milk, topped with puffed quinoa, coconut flakes and cacao nibs.

A very merry Christmas to you all!

Red Pancakes

Trying hard to get in the mood for Christmas here. Colour does the trick for me, so here is a stack of red banana pancakes, nearly high enough to match the Christmas tree. I’ve used a powder for colouring for the first time, a beetroot powder from @reneevoltaire. I simply added 2 tsp of powder to my usual banana pancake batter.
.
2 ripe bananas
2 dl oat milk
1 dl rolled oats
0,5 dl aquafaba
2 dl plain flour
3 tsp baking powder
2 tsp beetroot powder
1 tsp white vinegar
a pinch of salt
0,5 dl oil
.
Soak the oats in oat milk for 5-10 minutes. Mix everything in a food processor. Fry on medium heat on both sides in a little bit of neutral oil.

Tri-Coloured Pancakes

I need more colour in my life! Enter – the tri-coloured banana pancakes. I don’t have any fancy food colourers like pitaya or blue spirulina (yet, that is) so I worked with blueberries and raspberries. And in the ones without added colour, I put chocolate chips. Just because I can, you know?
.
2 ripe bananas
2 dl oat milk
1 dl rolled oats
0,5 dl aquafaba
2 dl plain flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp white vinegar
a pinch of salt
0,5 dl oil
1,5 dl blueberries
1,5 dl raspberries
0,5 dl chopped dark chocolate
.
Soak the oats in oat milk for 5-10 minutes. Mix everything but the berries and chocolate in a food processor. Divide the batter in three. Blend in blueberries and raspberries respectively, and fold in the chocolate to the last one. Fry on low heat on both sides (to make the colour last better).
