Vegan Double Chocolate Sunflour Brownies

That was my birthday present for myself. I baked these in the morning and secretly ate them all :P They're also allergy-free!


They are deliciously crispy outside and gooeeeeeeeey inside <3 Best brownie recipe EVER. Absolutely amazing! I also decided to bake in a oiled pan (without parchment paper) to get extra firminess like the author indicated. Since my pan was a squre one, in 30 minutes it was ready.

My subs:

protein powder -> brown rice powder
chocolate chips -> dark bitter chocolate, chopped

Vegan Plantain Buns

These buns are super fluffy! Simply the PERFECT snack. Super nutritious and tasty. My friend Marli (author of this recipe) made them on a skillet, but I decided to bake them as you can see in the step-by-step below bellow.


Ingredients:

Dry ingredients:

1 cup gluten-free oat flour
1 TBS tapioca starch
1 TBS chia seeds
1 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt (I used smoked salt)

Wet ingredients:

1 ripe plantain
1 TBS tahine
1 cup water

Directions:

1. In a big bowl, mix all dry ingredients. Set aside.

2. Using a small blender or food processor, blend all wet ingredients until smooth (or mash banana manually first and then add water + tahini, my banana was ripe but yet too hard to be mashed). Pour wet ingredients into dry and stir until you get a smooth batter. Set aside for 10 minutes.

3. Pre-heat oven at 180°C. Make buns/patties and put them on a lined baking sheet with some space apart from each other. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Remove from oven and let them cook on a rack a bit before eating them.

Vegan Dried Fruit and Nut Banana Bread Biscuits

Have you ever had a banana bread biscuit (not cookies, not cakes)? Me neither. It was about time. Funny and delicious combo.



I wanted to keep it without choclate since I ran out of my cacao nibs, therefote I made a mix of dried fruits (raisins and figs). I also added some Brazil nut and almond leftovers to the walnuts.

Note: A GF flour mix was used for a gluten-free option.

Healthy Creole Style Cauliflower Jambalaya

This vegan and paleo version of the famous Jambalaya from Louisiana is absolutely amazing! 


It looked complicated but I actually cooked it in no time. I also added a dollop of Chipotle for some extra juiciness before serving.
