Scrumptious

0B5E6011-F35A-4A1F-91E3-82F38AD9F576You know when you bake pancakes and you always eat the (crunchy) bits of the side of the pancakes, because it’s so delicious? I sometimes make these bits on purpose. A while ago someone said I should make it into a recipe and so I did. It might sound a little strange at first and that was why I wasn’t aware that what I was doing, might be something that other people like as well. So, here we go. I hope you like it! It’s super easy to make btw. To make it a little bit more fancy, I serve it here with something crunchy. Not just something crunchy.. but crunchy banana peels! Did you ever eat banana peels? I love it and it’s perfect against food waste. Another probably new things though, but it’s worth a try!

A0CC1633-52A6-4BD4-B1B5-AE4910F7F64CSCRUMPTIOUS

Serves: 2

batter
1 cup oat milk
1/2 cup plain flour
1/2 tbs maple syrup
1/2 tbs almond butter
1/4 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt

crunch (optional)
peel of 1 banana (organic)
1 tbs coconut oil
1/2 tsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon 

extra
fresh fruit
(coconut) yogurt
flaked almonds 

-You start with the crunch. Use a spoon to scrape the soft inside from the banana peel.
-Cut them in length.
-Put the coconut oil in a frying pan and when it’s all melted, fry the banana peel, on both sides, until they start to become crispy and brown (a few minutes).
-Take the peel out of the pan and sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar on top of them straight away, so it will tick to the oil. Then put aside.

-Mix all the batter ingredients together.
-Put a tiny bit of coconut oil in a frying pan and as soon as the pan is nice and hot, pour in the batter.
-Start mixing it straight away, like you would do with scrambled tofu. You will see that it will start to form little balls. Keep mixing it until it starts to be a little crispy on the sides.
-Serve with fresh fruit, (coconut) yogurt, almonds and the crunchy banana peel.

ABC Bites

img_3268Who loves pastries? Me! Basically everything with pastry dough is delicious. You can make savoury things and sweet things, it doesn’t matter, it will taste define. For this recipes I chose sweet, because I will make them this weekend when me and my family are celebrating the last day of the year and the beginning of a new one. In Holland we also make something called ‘oliebollen’. It’s hard to explain what it is. It looks like cake, but it’s fried. They’re very yummy and (in Holland) typical to eat on the last day of the year. I’d love to post a recipe for ‘oliebollen’, but because my dad will make them this Saturday and it’s quite a happening, you won’t have enough time to get the ingredients and make them. So this will be a recipe for next year! These pastries will be a good alternative for now and they’re super easy and yummy! I especially like the cinnamon rolls..

Simply Heaven

13499836_1178672748843493_1426228282_oSimple and delicious. If this sounds good, then I’m sure you’ll love this recipe! Also it contains peanut butter.. do I need to say more? Chocolate and peanut butter.. I know it gets better and better. Milkshakes are a very good snack. And you can also drink them before or after a sweaty work out. This one especially is very good for that. It’s filling, but filled with energy. I actually made this recipe sort of by accident. I fancied a milkshake and got all the things I liked and could find and put it together. The result was so tasty that I decided to write it down so I can share it with you guys. I hope you’ll like it just as much as me. Enjoy!
