Who doesn’t love Banana Bread? Always on the quest for healthy snacks, I tried this recipe that we immediately adopted.

You’ll need:
1/3 cup melted coconut,
1/2 cup apple or honey,
2 eggs,
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 1/2 bananas),
1/4 cup of milk (I used almond milk),
1 tsp baking soda,
1 tsp vanilla,
1/2 tsp salt,
1/2 tsp cinnamon,
1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour,
Optional: walnuts or chocolate chips.

Preheat oven 325F.
Beat the oil and apple together with a whisk.
Add the eggs and beat.
Whisk the mashed bananas and milk.
Add the baking soda, vanilla, salt, cinnamon, and whisk to blend.
With a big spoon, stir in the flour until combined.
Add walnuts if you want.
Bake 55 to 60 min.

 

Enjoy!

Let’s be real: what prompted me to make falafel at home is the sandwich I tasted at the Panthere Verte restaurant. I can eat in this restaurant every day, I will not get tired of it! Instead of spending all my money there, I thought it would be nice if I could reproduce a healthy version to their falafels. Here is my recipe:

You’ll need:
6 cloves garlic peeled,
1 can chickpeas rinsed (15 ounce)
1 ½ cup of parsley leaves,
1 cup of fresh cilantro leaves,
½ cup diced onion,
1/3 cup whole wheat flour,
1 tbsp lemon juice,
1 ½ tsp baking powder,
1 ½ tsp salt
1 ½ tsp ground cumin,
½ tsp black pepper
Olive oil

It’s simple: you put everything (except the oil) in the mixer and you mix! Put the mixture in a bowl that you cover with plasticized paper and leave to rest in the fridge for 2 hours.

On parchment paper, form small balls that you crush to form small disks (see photos). Meanwhile, heat the oil and cook for about 2 minutes on each side. Let’s say it: fried falafels are delicious but I opted for the healthier option.

Allow to cool on absorbent paper before eating.

Enjoy your falafels with humus, a fresh salad of cucumber tomatoes onions or in a sandwich.

When I have meetings in the morning, I am often in a hurry. Since I always like to have something to eat in my bag, I thought of making myself “breakfast muffins” that I could grab and go. I admit that I ate them all the time, except in the morning! Let’s keep this between us…

Ingredients
1 cup quick oats,
¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder,
1 tsp baking powder,
½ cup unsweetened almond milk,
1 medium-size ripe banana,
2 tbsp maple syrup,
2 tbsp nut butter,
1 tsp vanilla,
2 tbsp chocolate chip (vegan or not, your choice).

Preheat your over to 350F and lightly grease individual sized ramekins with coconut oil.
Add the oats, the baking powder and cocoa powder to a blender and process on high until you get a consistency of fine flour.
Add all of the remaining ingredients except for the chocolate chips and process on high until the dough become smooth and creamy. Fold in the chocolate chip.
Divide the dough between the ramekins and bake for 30-35min. It’s ready when you insert a knife (or a toothpick) into the center and it comes out clean. Wait about 15min before enjoying.

Lately, I’m trying so many vegan recipes and I love sharing with you the ones that I prefer. So here is another healthy treat that you can eat without any guilt.

To make these chocolate brownies, you’ll need:

  • 1 can of black beans,
  • ½ avocado,
  • 1 cup of brown sugar or coconut sugar,
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder,
  • ½ cup of walnuts (or almonds if you don’t have walnuts),
  • 1 tsp of baking powder,
  • 1 tsp of vanilla,
  • 1 tbsp of coconut oil,
  • salt,
  • 150g of dark chocolate (melt 120g, save 30g for topping)

You just have to mix all the ingredients together on a blender. Once it’s done, place the mix on a muffin pan and place it in the oven approximately 22min (180C / 350F).
