You will need : 3 bananas 6 eggs 2 tablespoons gluten-free flour ( coconut, almond, millet…whatever you like) 200 mL almond or coconut milk Note : This amount is for 3 portions   Mix all ingredients until smooth. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat.

Little Raw Vegan Cake Bites

Today, I was experimenting with some nuts, organic cacao powder and my favorite fruit! And the result I got was these perfect refreshing little raw cake bites.     What I used : 1 cup hazelnuts or almonds hand full of sunflower seeds 2 tbl spoons cacao powder hand full of peanuts or pistachio hand full of raisins 1 tbl spoon coconut oil blueberries or raspberries 2 tbl spoons chia seeds     How to do it : Blend hazelnuts or almonds with sunflower seeds, peanuts or pistachio, and raisins. Add coconut oil and cacao powder. For the second mixture, blend raspberries or blueberries with previously soaked chia seeds. Chia seeds need to be like jelly. If you don’t have chia seeds, you can mix the fruit with cashews. Add honey if you like. I made 3 cups with raspberries and four with blueberries. Add the first nut layer in the cup, then add the second, fruit layer. I made 4 layers, but you can make as much as you want 🙂 Have a good …

My lunch for today

I am absolutely  obsessed with the new product I found in my favorite health store. Ghee Butter! Yesss! For those of you who don’t know, it is a clarified butter that originated in ancient India and is commonly used in South Asian cuisines and traditional medicine. It is the main ingredient in some of the Ayurvedic medicines and Indian food. Ghee is pure butterfat cooked longer until all moisture is removed and the milk solids are caramelized and then filtered out. While butter is not necessarily bad for you, ghee has health benefits that make it healthier than butter. So, my lunch today was: Sesame ghee butter, gluten free bread, asparagus, ricotta cheese, vegetable salad, and of course, my cold pressed juice!
