Apple Pie Oatmeal this morning! This recipe is taken from Oh She Glows, but my lazy self had to do slight changes. I didn’t use applesauce as I was too lazy to make some and I used agave nectar instead of maple syrup! The recipe also calls for ground ginger, but I think the taste threw me off a bit - do try it if you’re a ginger fan though!
1/3 cup regular oats (I used apple and sultana muesli and it worked just as well)
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tsp ground cinnamon (I put way more than that :P)
1 + ¼ cups almond milk
2 apples, peeled and cut into 1 inch pieces
1 tablespoon agave nectar
½ tsp vanilla extract
chopped almonds to sprinkle on top
Mix together all the ingredients in a medium sized pot over medium heat and stir for about 15 minutes (to make the apples a bit tender!)
When the mixture absorbs all the milk, that’s when it’s all set and ready to be devoured. It smells so unbelievably good, I absolutely love it <3
♡ Protein cookie dough ♡
1 can chickpeas (I used 480g) |
1 scoop protein powder |
½ cup water or plant milk |
Vanilla and stevia |
Mix everything together and top with almond butter. A+ and works for every meal (brekky, lunch or dinner)
I wanted to make some protein bars. But they usually don’t taste too good if I follow some recipe that I’ve never tried so I usually end up just experimenting. But today I actually found a recipe that I like! In fact, I LOVE THEM! They’re so delicious! And it took about 5 mins total to make…no baking involved! I got the recipe from bodybuilding.com (see recipe here) but I’ll also post it for ease of use =D
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Bars:
¼ cup vanilla protein powder (I used Quest…get yours here!…and I used one scoop) 2 Tbsp peanut butter 1 tsp agave or honey ½ Tbsp coconut flour 2 tsp water 1 square dark chocolate chopped (I used dark unsweetened carob chips)
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
So when I did this, I needed about another tsp of water. Add it in slowly and see how much you need. Also, when you’re mixing together, it takes a while of mixing. I just started mixing with my hands and it was soo much quicker and easier.
This recipe makes about one big bar. I doubled the recipe and it is what is shown in the picture.
I present to youuuuuu.. the OVER THE TOP best damn vegan banana microwave cake!! This thing is so so so so so so so good. And super easy! 2 minutes in the microwave! Note, the recipe below is how I work around recipes in general - the only things I measured were flour and sugar, the rest you can estimate. Nobody can tell us what to do!
What you need:
Banana - 1 small or half of a medium size. Don’t worry too much about it.
Flour (any kind works!) - 1/3 cup
Sugar - ¼ cup
Baking powder - I say 1/3 tsp but to make it really dramatic you can use as much as you feel like ;)
Ground cinnamom - 1/8 tsp, add more for an extra Christmassy feel
Pinch of salt
Oil (again, any kind) - 1tbsp
Dairy free milk - 1 ½ tbsp (again, don’t worry too much about it as long as your mixture is nice, you can always add on to it later)
Vanilla - ¼ tbsp
(optional) add cocoa powder or chocolate chips or MAYBE peanut butter would work too!
Combine all dry ingredients and add wet ones. Make sure it’s all very mixed so you don’t get banana chunks stuck to the bottom. Fill your mug halfway or more for a better dramatic effect (note, you’ll probably have to clean ;)) Microwave for 2min and VOILA.
Tried a new vegan mac n cheese recipe 😎 I wish I could’ve gotten a better picture of this but I didn’t expect it turn out so good hahaha
The “cheese” sauce is made from four smallish or medium potatoes peeled, cut into large cubes, boiled, drained when super soft, and blended in a food processor with 3 or 4 tbsp of nutritional yeast, ½ to 1 tsp of paprika, a tsp of salt and pepper, about 1/3 cup plain almond milk. If it’s too thick, add some water, I ended up adding a little more than ¼ cup. Pour over macaroni noodles and you get this masterpiece 😋 my dad even approves of this!!!
mmmmmm sweet potato fries! sweet potatoes are high in vitamin B6, vitamin C and D, iron and magnesium. Packed full of nutrients and delicious, these sweet potato fries are a great side for sandwiches, turkey burgers, turkey tacos and more! I used organic sweet potatoes, peeled them, and sliced them into fries. Drizzle them with extra virgin olive oil, then season with paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper! Bake at 375 degrees for about a half hour and you’re good to go! #recipe #myrecipe #recipes #health #healthy #food #myintake #fitness #sweetpotatoes #yummy #nomz
OK SERIOUSLY?! AND they’re protein pancakes! These are made with vanilla Quest protein powder because Quest seriously makes the most delicious protein powder EVER! Get yours here!
Cinnamon Bun Protein Pancakes:
1 cup pitted dates ¼ cup milk (I use almond milk) 2 tsp cinnamon Vanilla
Blend these 4 in a food processor until smooth. Then place in a plastic bag and put in fridge.
½ cup flour ¾ tsp baking powder 2 Tbsp Quest vanilla protein powder ½ tsp cinnamon 2 Tbsp agave 1 Tbsp applesauce Vanilla ½ cup milk (again, I use almond milk)
Mix dry ingredients together and then add in wet. Place batter onto a pan. Take your filling ingredients from the fridge, cut a corner off the bag, and swirl it onto pancakes in pan. Flip the pancakes when they are ready (edges look done) and cook on second side for about 2 minutes. If they are sticking to the pan after being flipped and you are ready to devour them, they’re not done. Have patience. Should be about another minute.
VEGAN peanut butter & banana pancakes! This recipe makes 3-4 servings and it only takes 15 min to make! These are a brilliant source of protein and a perfect way to start your day! So fluffy and so unbelievably delicious!
1 cup of all purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 flax egg (or egg replacer - I used flax seeds mixed with water)
¾ cup almond milk
2 tablespoons melted vegan butter (I used non-dairy soy butter)
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 very ripe bananas
¼ cup peanut butter
optional: try it with some cinnamon! or blueberries! or non-dairy chocolate chips!
Microwave the peanut butter for a few seconds and leave it to cool. Prepare your flax eggs (1 tablespoon flax seed, 3 tablespoons water, mix and set in the fridge for 5 min). Add all dry ingredients in a bowl (flour, sugar, salt, baking powder), mix with a spoon. Mash bananas and add melted butter in a separate bowl (this will give the bananas a better consistency, spreading them evenly). Add all wet ingredients to your dry ingredients (flax egg, almond milk, bananas+butter, peanut butter, vanilla) and mix together. I used a simple fork to mix these and didn’t require any blender, which is brilliant. Prepare your pan (I use cooking spray) and cook like normal pancakes! Devour and enjoy <3
Preheat the oven to 200C. Wash and peel the potatoes and them cut them into wedges. Throw them into large bowl, add spices and then mix until all the potatoes are covered with seasoning. Cover the baking tray with parchment paper and spread the potatoes evenly on the tray. Bake them for 40-45 min until crispy. I like to dip them into organic sweet and sour sauce or pure tomato paste.
No matter how vegan I am, cheese is cheese and this is not! But it is very very amazing. Originally this is supposed to be a cashew cheese, but I suck at reading and I bought mixed cashews and peanuts - worked out perfectly though!
What you need:
1 cup of cashews (peanuts are optional!) soaked in 3 cups of water for at least an hour!
1 tablespoon of nutritional yeast (optional - adds cheesy flavour!)
Salt to taste
Ground pepper to taste
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
Soak cashews in water for at least an hour (mine were in for a day, works perfectly if you don’t have a strong food processor).
Place them in a food processor along with 1 tablespoon of soaked water (I use Nutribullet blender and it worked just as well!) along with lemon juice, salt, ground pepper. Mix until completely smooth (if required, add more water!)
This goes amazingly with some multiseed crackers <3
I make pancakes all the time so I thought I’d do a little tutorial with my favorite flavor!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Pancakes:
1/3 cup flour (any kind) 1/3 cup quick oats 1 tsp baking powder 1 packet stevia or 1 Tbsp brown sugar ½ scoop Quest vanilla protein powder Some mini chocolate chips About ½ cup milk (just pour until right consistency. I used almond milk)
Heat up your pan/griddle on low-medium heat. On my stove that means like a 4-5. Mix dry ingredients (first 6 ingredients) together. Then add in the milk and careful not to overstir. Take some drops of water and splash it onto the pan. If it sizzles, you’re ready. Pour the mixture out onto the pan/griddle. One you start you see bubbles and the edges hardening like in the first picture, you’re flippin ready to flip those bad boys! If you’re making very dense pancakes like some other protein pancakes, they might not bubble. You’ll just have to take a peak underneath. Then, you’ll have to take a peak for the second side to see if they’re done done (second pic). If they look like they are done and look like the top, and the edges look done as well, they’re ready for eatin! Well, careful, they’re hot🔥
