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! 🙋

Nutty Raspberry Streusel Bars

October 6, 2015

Nutty Raspberry Streusel Bars

The creation of these Nutty Raspberry Streusel Bars was actually quite random. I had yet another batch of my Two Ingredient Raspberry Jam in my fridge that was waiting to be used, and I had some almond flour and loooots of walnuts laying around the house. That, plus a major sweet craving and some spare time resulted in the creation of these super delicious Nutty Raspberry Streusel Bars 💕

Spiced Zucchini Muffins with Apple

Spiced Zucchini Muffins with Apple

A little while ago, I came to the conclusion that I don’t eat enough vegetables. Yes, I have my green smoothies and my soups and my veggie burgers, but other than that I barely eat any vegetables… Not good! For a snack I almost always have something sweet, like some fruit or a homemade muffin, and my breakfast is sweet, either in the form of oatmealpancakes or, like I said, the occasional green smoothie. Conclusion: I have a HUGE sweet tooth.

Salted Peanut Butter Cookies

Salted Peanut Butter Cookies

These amazing salted peanut butter cookies are heaven on earth. I’ve always loved the combination of sweet and salty, and in this cookie the two flavors really complement each other. If you take a bit of one of these little pieces of heaven, the crumbly texture will immediately start to melt in your mouth… Yes, they are that good, believe me!

Apple Muffins with Walnuts, Cinnamon and Zante Currants

Apple Muffins with Walnuts, Cinnamon and Zante Currants

I know these muffins are actually more like an autumn recipe, but since apples are practically available year round nowadays, I will share it anyway, because they are DELICIOUS! These muffins are great to make a big batch of, as they will keep for about a week in the fridge without the topping – although I bet they won’t last that long haha.

Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble

May 23, 2015

Strawberry Rhubarb CrumbleYesterday, I finally saw rhubarb at my local grocery store that was actually fresh and ripe, so I immediately went for it – obviously! – and decided to put it to good use immediately. Personally, I just really love the classic combination of rhubarb and strawberries, so I decided to do something with that, and I was also inspired by a dish my grandmother and mothers used to make very often: Brusselse appelen (Brussels apples). Basically it is just an apple crumble recipe with a very yummy, but quite unhealthy and very non-vegan crust.

Cherry Garcia Muffins

May 20, 2015

Cherry Garcia MuffinsThese muffins… These are so delicious, I can’t even explain. Did you ever had the Ben & Jerry’s flavor Cherry Garcia? Personally, I’ve always loved the combination of cherries and chocolate, and for this muffin I was inspired by the classic Ben & Jerry’s flavor. Now, I know these may not look like the prettiest muffins, but men, these are really really good! And if you feel a little fancy, you can just drizzle them with some dark chocolate, like I did with some of them.

Orange Banana Pancakes

Orange Banana Pancakes
I am so happy! It has finally become spring here in the Netherlands, and with temperatures of 15 to 20 degrees Celcius you can even call that warm haha. So in line with the weather, I had to make something that was spring-like, and since it is Sunday, and I wanted to have a nice breakfast, I made pancakes! Loving the #pancakesunday trend.
