Riia’s Vegan Banana Nut Muffins *Altered from this recipe
3 Ripe Bananas (mashed)
3 tbsp Olive Oil
2 cups flour (aim for healthier flours…no white flours!)
¾ cup Sugar (or applesauce as a substitute)
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
3 tsp Cinnamon (or desired amount)
½ cup Walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350. Mix mashed bananas with olive oil. Add in flour, sugar, baking soda,vanilla extract and cinnamon. Blend using an electric mixer until smooth texture. Stir in walnuts.
Pour batter into desired pan. I chose a cupcake tray because it makes portion control easier!
Cook for about 30-60 minutes, depending on pan size! Enjoy :)
Heat a pan at a medium temperature & grease with some olive oil. In a blender blend bananas, vanilla almond milk, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and hemp hearts until you reach a liquid texture. Pour batter into bowl. Soak slices of Ezikiel Bread in the batter. Make sure bread is fully coated and place slices onto heated & greased pan. Cook at medium heat until bread is cooked and no longer soggy. (It may take a while too cook, but don’t turn up the heat or else you’ll burn the outside and have a soggy inside.)
Once bread is cooked and cooled, I like to top it with berries, hemp hearts & a little Pure Maple Syrup! Enjoy! :)
When I go out for a couple of hours, whether I’m shopping or just going to see a movie…I get hungry! I mean come one…shopping is hard work! So if I don’t pack a few little snacks, I end up getting cranky and tempted to stop at the closest food joint. Instead of breaking down and rolling up to an icky drive thru, I love packing a few snacks to throw in my purse!
Try it out!
Make your own trail mix by throwing together some nuts, seeds and dry fruits!
Slice up fruit and veggies
Make some homemade snack bars and wrap them up
…the possibilities are endless! :)
Riia’s Raw Vegan Mint Chocolate Fudge Cookies These cookies were inspired by Thin Mints in spirit of Girl Scout Cookie season! They came out more of a fudge texture and at first I was a little disappointed. However, after eating one, I find that the fudge consistency makes them richer! Hope you enjoy! Ingredients: ¼ cup Cashews ¼ cup Walnuts ¼ cup Oats ¼ cup Chocolate chips (any type…semi sweet, carob, cacao, etc) 1/8 cup Cacao powder 2 tbsp Agave nectar 1 tsp Peppermint Extract How To: In a food processor, blend together cashews, walnuts, oats, and chocolate chips until they form a floury texture. Add in cacao powder, agave nectar, and peppermint extract. Process again until dough forms. Shape batter into cookie or truffle shape. Freeze. Enjoy! :)
Sometimes when I start to cook/bake, I have an idea in my mind of what I want to make…and once I finish it isn’t quite right. However today, I was pleasantly surprised! I wanted to make scones with a little chocolate glaze drizzled on top. I wasn’t sure if they’d come out tasty since I’ve never made scones or chocolate glaze before, but I actually loved them! :) I only want to tweak like one thing and then I’m hoping they’ll be perfect!
I’m going to start making more scone recipes! They’re not only easy, but super tasty too! So expect some more in the future :)
