Banana Bread Muffins

I’ve been on a food waste reducing mission since the beginning of the year. I’ve tried to really keep track of the food I buy so that minimal amounts of it end up in the trash.

banana-muffin2

With that in mind, when I saw that two perfectly innocent bananas were starting to get rather tanned, I made this banana bread. It’s a simple one-bowl recipe, packed with flavour and good ingredients. Plus, it’s refined sugar-free! Well, if you don’t count the chocolate chips… that doesn’t count, right?

banana-muffin

Here is what you need:

  • 2 tbs ground flax seeds + 6 tbs water
  • 2 ripe bananas (we’re talking brown spots here)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup applesauce (I pureed some raw apple with my stick blender for this, but if you’re out, an extra mushed banana will also work great)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1 3/4 cup oat flour (I made mine in my blender using regular oats)
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • to make them extra cute: extra chocolate chips + some sliced banana

Here is what you do:

  1. In a large bowl, mix the flax seeds and water together and let sit for 5 minutes or until they form a gel-like substance.
  2. Preheat your oven to 350F (180C) and oil your muffin tin.
  3. Mash up the two bananas with the flax mixture until smooth.
  4. Add in the rest of the ingredients one by one. Whisk until smooth between each addition.
  5. Fill up your muffin tins with two tablespoons of the batter.
  6. To decorate, add a few chocolate chips and a banana slice to the top of each muffin.
  7. Place in your oven for 25-30 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.  Leave to cool for 5 minutes before removing from the tin and enjoy!

Super simple, super delicious! These are not too sweet, so the chocolate chips really add in a nice touch. Also, because they are made with oat flour, they are perfect for breakfast and will keep you full for quite some time. Let me know if you try them out!

Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve been on a baking rampage these last few weeks: cakes and sweets are pretty much all I think about! I’ve been trying out a lot of recipes, tweaking them and coming up with my own. This week, I wanted to finally bake the perfect chocolate chip cookies. These are chewy, naturally sweetened and so easy to prepare.

chocchip-cookies2

Here is what you need:

  • 6 pitted dates soaked in 1/3 cup warm water for 15 minutes
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 2 tbs tahini
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Here is what you do:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F.
  2. In your blender or food processor, mix the dates with their soaking water until you have a smooth paste. Transfer to a bowl.
  3. Mix in the rest of the ingredients until you have a smooth paste.
  4. With wet hands, make 6 to 8 balls out of the mixture and place them on a lined cookie sheet. Press down on each ball to make out your cookies. These won’t spread too much or change shape while baking so make sure they look good!
  5. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until the cookies are golden all around and slightly soft in the middle. Remove from the oven and let cool before removing them from the cookie sheet. Enjoy while they are still warm. They will keep in an air-tight container for a few days in the fridge if you can resist them! Enjoy!

Man, these are amazing cookies! The rims of the cookies are nice and crunchy while the middle is so chewy! I love that they are made from wholesome ingredients and are completely gluten-free. I used mini chocolate chips because they are so cute! Let me know if you try this out!

The simplest banana pudding \\ Le pudding de banane le plus simple

A few days ago, I really craved yoghurt. However, I haven’t found a vegan yoghurt that I enjoy, so I needed to be creative. This is so simple, and the banana flavour is incredible. You might think that I have gone back to the baby-food stage, but, trust me, it’s really delicious!

banana-pudding

Here’s what you need:

  • 1-2 bananas
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Toppings: nuts, seeds, fruits or granola to your liking

  1. Place the banana, lemon juice, lemon zest and vanilla extract in your blender and blend until smooth. Garnish with your favourite toppings and enjoy!

banana-pudding2

This is so simple, but I promise, it’s a great substitute for yogurt. The texture is very similar, and the lemon juice adds a nice tanginess. Plus, this is naturally sweet, so it makes for a perfect no-guilt dessert. Let me know if you try it out!


Il y a quelques jours, une grosse envie de yaourt m’a prise. Cependant, je n’ai pas encore trouvé de substitut végane qui me plaise, alors j’ai essayé quelquechose. C’est si simple, et la saveur de banane est incroyable. Vous pensez peut-être que j’ai régréssé au stage de la bouffe pour bébé, mais, faites-moi confiance, c’est vraiment délicieux!

banana-pudding3

Voici ce dont vous avez besoin:

  • 1-2 bananes
  • 1 c. à thé de jus de citron
  • 1/2 c. à thé de zeste de citron
  • 1 c. à thé d’extrait de vanille

Garnitures: Noix, graines, fruits ou du granola à volonté!

  1. Placez la banane, le jus, le zest de citron et la vanille dans votre robot et mélangez jusqu’à ce que le tout soit bien lisse et onctueux. Garnissez et savourez!

banana-pudding4

C’est tellement simple, c’est presque ridicule de partager cette recette, mais c’est vraiment une bonne alternative au yaourt. La texture est très proche et le jus de citron ajoute un coté acidulé très agréable. En plus, c’est naturellement sucré alors c’est un dessert sans culpabilité parfait. Dites-moi si vous essayez!

Iron Vegan Protein Powder Review // Poudre protéinée Iron Vegan

I’ve been testing out a few vegan protein powders recently, and I have to say it’s difficult to find one that is not too chalky, that tastes great and that is not filled with weird ingredients. Just last week, I had to go out to buy a third bag of the Iron Vegan Spouted Vegan Powder, I knew I had found a winner.

chocolatebananasmoothie

Here’s what I like about this particular powder.

  • It’s made in Canada. Most of the other popular vegan protein powders that I can find in my area are made in the States, so it is nice to find one that is made more locally.
  • The packaging is less wasteful than the regular plastic tubs (it comes in a bag).
  • What I like most is the taste. Because it contains xantham gum, it really has a smooth texture. The chocolate taste is right on point and without any weird aftertaste. In brief, this is my go-to protein powder.
  • With 18g of protein per scoop, for 3g of carbs and only 0.5g of fat, it’s the powder that I found with the greatest macro ratio.

I pay around 60$ for the 1kg bag, and that lasts me and my boyfriend for around 3 weeks. I usually have one scoop in the morning with breakfast and one after the gym.  If you want to take it to the next level, try this post-workout smoothie recipe.

Here is what you need:

  • 1 scoop of Iron vegan chocolate protein powder
  • 1 tsp of raw cocoa powder
  • 1 cup of almond milk
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 banana

Just blend everything together and enjoy! This is my favourite and something else that I’ve had almost every day for the last few months. Really satisfying and guilt-free! Let me know if you try it out or if you have tried another vegan protein powder.


Ces derniers mois, j’ai essayé différentes poudres protéinées véganes, et je dois dire qu’il est difficile d’en trouver une qui ne soit pas trop “poudreuse”, qui ait bon goût et qui ne soit pas remplie d’ingrédients inconnus ou étranges. La semaine dernière, lorsque j’ai acheté mon troisième sac de la poudre protéinée Iron Vegan Sprouted Vegan Powder, j’ai réalisé que ma quête était terminée.

bananasmoothie

Voici pourquoi j’aime tant cette poudre protéinée particulière:

  • Elle est faite au Canada. La majorité des poudres protéinées que je peux trouver dans mon quartier sont faites aux États-Unis, alors c’est vraiment chouette d’en trouver une plus locale.
  • L’emballage est plus raisonable que les boites de platique: cette poudre est vendue dans un sac.
  • Le goût crémeux (merci poudre de xantham) et chocolaté, sans arrière goût étrange.
  • Avec 18g de protéines par portion, 3g de glucides et 0,5g de gras, cette poudre est équilibrée juste à mon goût!

Je paye environs 60$ pour le sac de 1kg qui me dûre environs 3 semaines. J’en prend habituellement une portion le matin avec mon petit déjeuner et une autre après le gym. Je vous recommande cette recette de smoothie post-workout: c’est comme un dessert!

Voici ce dont vous aurez besoin:

  • 1 portion de poudre protéinée Iron Vegan
  • 1 c. à thé de poudre de cacao crue
  • 1 tasse de lait d’amande
  • 1 tasse d’eau
  • 1 banane

Mélanger le tout et savourez! C’est mon smoothie préféré et encore une autre chose que j’ai mangé presque tous les jours ces dernières semaines. Super satisfaisant et sans culpabilité! Dites-moi si vous l’essayez ou votre poudre protéinée préférée.

 

Popcorn Bark \\\ Croquant au maïs soufflé

(Version française plus bas!)

I know we probably all went overboard on chocolate during the holidays, but, what can I say, I’m just addicted! I also wanted to make something portable that my boyfriend could take with him to work as a snack or an afternoon pick-me-up. This is really simple to prepare, you can personalize it, and it’s really yummy!

popcornbar2

Here is what you need:

  • 1/2 cup coconut syrup
  • 4 cups popcorn
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Toppings:

  • sesame seeds
  • raisins
  • coconut flakes
  • dried fruits

Here is what you do:

  1. Line a baking tray with some foil or parchment paper.
  2. Place the coconut syrup in a small saucepan on medium heat and let reduce. You know it’s ready when you can see the bottom of the pan for a few seconds after you drag a spatula at the bottom (the liquid is slow to fill up the space left by the spatula). This takes around 10 minutes.
  3. Place the popcorn on the baking tray and pour the coconut syrup on top. Using your spatula, mix the syrup so that all the popcorn is well coated. Pat it down to make it stick together as a big block and smooth the top to make it as flat as possible.
  4. Melt the chocolate in your microwave or in a bain-marie (I use a big bowl that I fill up with boiling water and place a smaller bowl into it with the chocolate). Pour the chocolate over the popcorn and spread it in an even layer.
  5. Sprinkle your toppings on top of the chocolate while it is still melted. Once you have everything you like stuck to the chocolate, place the baking tray in your fridge for 1 hour until your chocolate is solid again.
  6. Cut in small chunks and keep this in an airtight container. Enjoy!

popcornbar

I love this because the texture of the popcorn is amazing! This would make a great snack if you are planning on a movie marathon, but I like the idea of having a small chunk as an afternoon snack. It’s also great because you can personalize it with any topping that you like. Let me know if you try this out!


Je sais que nous avons probablement tous abusé du chocolat pendant le temps de fêtes, mais je dois avouer que je suis vraiment accro! J’avais aussi envie de préparer une collation que mon copain pourrait apporter avec lui au travail pour pouvoir avoir un petit boost d’énergie en après-midi. Cette recette est vraiment facile à préparer, vous pouvez la personaliser et c’est vraiment délicieux!

popcornbar3

Voici ce dont vous avez besoin:

  • 1/2 tasse de sirop de coco
  • 4 tasses de maïs soufflé
  • 1 tasse de pépites de chocolat

Garnitures:

  • graines de sésame
  • raisins secs
  • noix de coco râpée
  • fruits secs

Voici ce qu’il faut faire:

  1. Recouvrir une plaque à biscuit avec du papier d’aluminium ou parchemin.
  2. Placer le sirop de coco dans une petite casserole à feu moyen et laisser réduire. Vous saurez que c’est prêt lorsque la ligne tracée par une spatule prend du temps à se refermer (le sirop est épais et se déplace lentement pour recouvrir le fond de la casserole). Cela prend environs 10 minutes.
  3. Placer le maïs soufflé sur la plaque à biscuit et y verser le sirop. Mélanger le tout à l’aide d’une spatule pour que chaque morceau soit bien recouvert. Presser le maïs pour former un rectangle homogène et plat qui se tienne.
  4. Faire fondre le chocolat au micro-onde ou au bain-marie. Verser le chocolat sur le maïs et l’étaler pour former une couche uniforme.
  5. Ajouter vos garnitures sur le chocolat. Placer votre plaque à biscuit dans le frigo pendant 1 heure pour aider le chocolat à solidifier.
  6. Découper en petits morceaux et garder dans un contenant hermétique. Savourez!

J’adore cette collation car le maïs soufflé apporte vraiment une texture incroyable. Ça ferait également une très bonne collation si vous prévoyez une soirée cinéma, mais j’aime l’idée d’en apporter quelques morceaux à grignoter en après-midi. C’est aussi chouette de pouvoir personaliser les garnitures selon mes envies! Dites-moi si vous essayez cette recette!

Protein-packed Brownies \\ Brownies Protéinés

I love chocolate. I could live off of chocolate… probably. One of my favourite thing to do is add cocoa powder to my morning oatmeal. It feels like a treat, while still being healthy and delicious. Now these brownies are the same way! They are delicious but so guilt-free: oil-free, sugar-free, gluten-free and full of protein! Yum!

black-bean-brownies

Here is what you need:

  • 1/2 cup oats (I used quick oats, but rolled work too)
  • 1 can of black or kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 10 dates, pitted and soaked in water for at least 1 hour
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (or any other plant milk)
  • 2 heaping tbs of cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • optional: chocolate chips

Here is what you do:

  1. Process the oats in your food processor until you have a fine flour. Set it aside.
  2. Place the rest of the ingredients in your food processor and process until everything is well combined. Mix in the flour and chocolate chips if you are using them.
  3. Place your brownie mix in a lined or non-stick pan and bake in a pre-heated oven set on 350F (180C) for 20 minutes. Poke a skewer in the middle: if it comes out clean, your brownies are ready! Serve warm, and keep in the fridge in an air-tight container. Enjoy!

These are so great! They really fill you up so they are a great alternative for breakfast if you’re feeling that way, or make for a perfect snack on the go. Plus, they are so chocolaty! Let me know if you make some!

black-bean-brownies2


Parce que le chocolat c’est une des meilleures choses de la vie, voici une recette de brownies pleins de protéines à manger sans modération (ou presque) puisqu’ils sont sans sucre, sans huile et sans gluten. Oh oui!

  • 1/2 tasse de flocons d’avoine (j’ai utilisé des flocons rapides, mais l’avoine à l’ancienne fonctionne aussi)
  • 1 conserve de haricots noirs ou rouges, rincés
  • 10 dates, dénoyautées et trempées dans de l’eau pour au moins 1 heure
  • 1/2 cup lait d’amandes (ou un autre lait végétal)
  • 2 c. à soupe bombées de poudre de cacao
  • 1/2 c. à café d’extrait de vanille
  • 1/2 c. à café de poudre à pâte
  • optionel: pépites de chocolat
  1. Placer les flocons d’avoine dans votre robot culinaire et broyer jusqu’à l’obtention d’une farine fine. Réserver.
  2. Mettre le reste des ingrédients dans le robot, et mélanger jusqu’à ce que tout soit bien incorporé. Ajouter la farine et les pépites de chocolat et mélanger.
  3. Placer le tout dans un moule recouvert de papier sulfurisé ou anti-adhésif et placer dans un four pré-chauffé à 350F (180C) pour 20 minutes. Tester à l’aide d’un cure-dent: si le cure-dent ressort propre du brownie, c’est prêt! Sinon, laisser encore quelques minutes. Servir chaud et garder au frigo dans une boîte hermétique. Savourez!

 

Coconut Tapioca with Mango Topping

In our moving saga, the bad guy would be the appliance store. It has been a month since we went in to buy our fridge and it’s still not in. Let me tell you, we have forgotten how to live without a fridge! Anyways, this morning when I walked in my fridgeless kitchen, I realized that I had two really ripe mangoes. I had to eat them today! I combined them with some deliciously satisfying coconut milk and chewy tapioca pearls to make the perfect tropical pudding. It’s so refreshing, and it makes for a great snack! Miam!

coconut-tapioca3

Here is what you need:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup plant-based milk
  • 2 cups coconut milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cardamom pods
  • 3/4 cups small tapioca pearls
  • 2 large mangoes
  • 2 passionfruits
  • 2 tbs sesame seeds
  • 2 tbs unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 pinch of salt

Here is what you do:

  1. In a saucepan, combine the water, milk, coconut milk, and vanilla extract. Bring to a simmer on medium heat. Crush the cardamom pods and place them in a tea bag or tea infuser. Add them to the milk and let them infuse for 5 minutes. Remove them and add the tapioca pearls. Mix from time to time, and let simmer on low heat for 20 minutes or until the white spot in the middle of each pearl is gone. You should have a thick and creamy tapioca pudding. Place in an air-tight container and let cool in the fridge.
  2. Peel the mangoes and dice them. Mix in the flesh of two passionfruits. Set aside.
  3. In a pan, mix the sesame seeds, the coconut flakes, and the pinch of salt. Place on medium heat for a few minutes until the start to get golden. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  4. To assemble, place a few tablespoons of tapioca pudding at the bottom of a cup. Add a few tablespoons of mangoes and garnish with some toasted sesame seeds. Enjoy!

coconut-tapioca2

This is so good! The chewyness of the tapioca is balanced out by the freshness of the mango, while the passionfruits add that tropical magic. This is perfect as a snack: prepare a few portions ahead of time in jars and place them in the fridge for a ready-to-eat, sugar-free pudding to make you wait for dinner.
