Nourishing banana bread

The dry mix

  • 1 1/3 cup of coconut/cashew flour or regular
  • 1 pinch of Himalayan salt
  • ½ cup of oats
  • GHEE optional
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 pinch of cinnamon 
  • 1 pinch of cacao nibs, almonds if you like.

 

The wet mix

  • 2 big bananas or 4 medium
  • 1/3 cup of milk of your choice. I suggest almond or coconut
  • 1 drop of vanilla stevia
  • 2 tablespoons of flaxseed
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ tsp coconut oil

Method

Preheat 350 degrees for 1.5 hours. 

Lightly spray a 9×5-inch loaf pan with coconut oil or GHEE and set aside.

Now, in a large bowl, mash the banana until it is almost smooth and add  the wet ingredients (milk, ground flax, melted  coconut oil, honey,) into the banana until combined.

Mix all the dry ingredients (sugar, oats, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and flour) into the wet mixture until everything is even and you don’t see flour patches at the bottom of the bowl.

Place the mix dough into the loaf pan and spread out evenly. Here you can add some almonds or cacao nibs if you want. 

Bake for 45 -50 mins 

Place the loaf pan on a cooling rack for 30 minutes before turning out.

Slice and enjoy!

Roasted Carrots

I love carrots!!! They give us dynamism, color on our plates and have loads of benefits for our health and skin.

Health BENEFITS of carrots

  • Rich in vitamin A which is great for our skin. Although I don’t recommend long period of time in the sun, this brilliant vitamin can help us stay more protected.
  • Known as one of the most effective diuretic vegetables! This promote the reduction of our body storing excess fluid.
  • Build strong hair and nails thanks to the beta-carotene and provitamin A.

  • Boosts the immune system with the critical minerals iron, zinc and copper.
