Baked Apple Crisp

November 15, 2015

A delicious Baked Apple Crisp recipe from That Healthy Kitchen. This version is gluten free and vegan, and naturally sweetened. Find the recipe on www.thathealthykitchen.com/baked-apple-crisp

November has the perfect weather for all things apple! It is cold outside, a little rainy, and after a long walk in the forest it is the perfect time for a slice of Dutch apple pie (which is the best apple pie!).

Or, you could of course just make this Baked Apple Crisp recipe and treat your family to a delicious dessert!

Spicy Pumpkin and Coconut Soup

Spicy Pumpkin and Coconut Soup

With my trip to Thailand in mind, I recently started to look more into Asian style food and recipes, because I’m actually not that familiar with the Asian kitchen! Yes, I love sushi and I’ve made some Indian curries a long time ago, but other than that I’m absolutely clueless on which spices to use, what herbs, what produce, what kinds of cooking methods, etc etc.

Autumn Apple Pancakes

Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

These Autumn Apple Pancakes are amazing guys! Perfect for a lazy Sunday breakfast or brunch now that the days are getting colder and you want a warming breakfast.

If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you probably noticed that I’m a huuuge sucker for the combination of apple and cinnamon: my favourite oatmeal is this Apple Pie Oatmeal and my favourite muffins are these Apple Muffins with Walnuts, Cinnamon and Zante Currants. They are both so so good!! The combination of apples + cinnamon is just amazing to me. It reminds me of long autumn strolls in the woods, the beautiful red, orange and yellow colours of the trees, reading a book by the fireplace, etc.

Pumpkin Brownies with Nuts and a Chocolate and Date Caramel Drizzle

November 2, 2015

Pumpkin Brownies with Nuts and a Chocolate and Date Caramel Drizzle

Guys, these brownies are amazing!

For me, they are the perfect combination of healthy (pumpkin, nuts, cacao, oatmeal) and guilty pleasure (pure chocolate, lots of sweet and sticky dates). As I’ve said before, I’m trying to up my veggie intake a little, and these Pumpkin Brownies with Nuts and a Chocolate and Date Caramel Drizzle are just perfect for that. Per slice, these contain the equivalent of almost 70 gram pumpkin, which is of course not all of your daily recommended intake of vegetables, but it is definitely a good start.

These brownies might be a bit more dense than the brownies you’re used to, but don’t let that discourage you from making them. Their taste is amazing and they are very filling too. Plus, they have an overwhelmingly delicious chocolate flavor 🍫🙌

Creamy Red Lentil and Coconut Soup

With winter approaching, I prefer easy, cosy dinners that are warming, delicious and nutritious. And what is more cosy and simple than soup?!

Admittedly, this Creamy Red Lentil and Coconut Soup isn’t the quickest (check out this tomato soup if you want a quick soup), but it is very budget friendly and perfectly spiced.

Simple Vegan Banana Bread

October 20, 2015

Simple Vegan Banana Bread

I like my banana’s unripe. As in almost green, and still a little on the firm side. Actually, you just have two types of people:
1. Those who like their banana’s with brown spots, love the mushiness and the overly present banana smell and flavor.
2. And on the other hand, people who like their banana’s on the green-yellow side of the spectrum, still a bit firm and without an overly banana taste –> Meee! 🙋

Italian Zuppa Caprese

Italian Zuppa Caprese

Do you guys love Italian food as much as I do? 🇮🇹

I don’t know what happened, but lately I’m SO into all things Italian! Example 1, 2 and 3.

For some reason, I’ve never really understood the Italian food crazy. I mean yeah, I like pizza and pasta, and even tiramisu, but ehm yeah, it’s not that special?! Well, I’ve totally changed my mind! Before starting this food blog, I was already into delicious food, and as a kid I used to bake a lot, but only when I started That Healthy Kitchen I started realizing the impact that good quality ingredients truly have on your food. I mean it when I say that a good quality ingredient can take a dish from okay to wow! And that, my friends, is exactly what Italian food is about: easy, simple recipes that become extraordinary by using high quality ingredients.
