No sugar Sunday brunch

Here comes another recipe for banana pancakes (out of the rest of the saved bananas, see previous post). This recipe was inspired by  the vegan pancakes out of the book Clean Eating Starter. It is highly recommendable, since it contains loads of delicious recipes which are mostly without sugar. My only critic are once again the many non-regional ingredients (all seen from switzerland).

Anyhow here comes my recipe:

  • 1 egg
  • 100g oatmeal
  • 100g flour
  • 3 bananas
  • cinnamon as much as wanted
  • coconut oil

First scrunch the bananas with a fork. Then add the egg, the oatmeal and the flour and mix it. Also add as much water as needed until you get a creamy consistence (though it shouldn’t be too fluid, a little less than for the banana bread). Then heat the coconut oil and roast gently on medium heat. If your dough is too fluid, just add more oatmeal.

Serve with peanut putter, maple sirup or fruits!

For a whole brunch we also had the chia musli and bread (or croissants, up to you). You can eat the bread with butter or honey instead of jam.

Note: as a vegan variation this recipe also works without the egg. For the original recipe (there is a vegan variation and one with eggs too), check out Clean Eating Starter by Julia Fodor and Luisa Eckhard.

Bananabread (vegan)

First cravings for something sweet? Or your bananas turned brown within the last few days? Or even no need for reasons to make a banana bread? First of all I do not often buy bananas, because for the sake of our environment I try to focus on local food. Still every now and then we have bananas at home and this time they turned brown. In addition the bananas in the supermarket nearby were on sale. Since I used to work in a smoothie and juice bar I know, that all of them which were still left at the end of the day end up in the compost. So I felt like this time it was justified to make a banana bread 😉 for the sake of anti food waste.

The long and short of it: here comes my very own recipe.

  • 4 bananas
  • 50g walnuts
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tbs cinnamon
  • 100g flour
  • water
  • butter (vegan: coconutoil)

Turn on the oven, 180° C air circulation. Peel the bananas and scrunch them with a fork. Then mix the flour, cinnamon and vanilla and add the mixture to the bananas. Add as much water until you get a creamy consistence and add the walnuts. Grease the cake pan with the butter and pour in the dough. Put it into the oven for at least 30 min check every now and then.

Sugar-free breakfast bowl (vegan)

Here comes the first sugar-free recipe! It only takes 5 min.

You’ll need:

  • 2 tbs chia seeds
  • 100ml milk (vegan: almondmilk)
  • 1 apple
  • 1 tbs yoghurt, you can choose the flavor (vegan: coconutyoghurt)
  • honey (vegan: maple sirup)
  • cinnamon

Mix the chia seeds and milk and but it into the fridge for 5 min. In the meantime you can cut the apple, clean the kitchen, read the newspaper etc. Take the chiaseed-milk bowl out of the fridge and add the rest of the ingredients.

Tip: You can adjust the fruit you add according to the seasons. Try a berry variation in summer!

Tip 2: make sure your yoghurt doesn’t contain sugar! Mostly fruit yoghurts contain almost half of the sugar you should consume during the day! There are sugar free alternatives (also vegan ones) available in every supermarket. Look for non-flavoured yoghurt, you can add any taste you want by yourself.

Hairconditioner 2.0

Deutsche Version weiter unten…

Yeeay I got 2 new hairconditioners yesterday at Lush 😀

First, if you don’t know what a conditioner is or how to use it, check out my blogpost about Hairconditioners here.

I’ve been presenting you already the american cream and a coconut conditioner by Lush in April. Find it here.

This time I got the Veganese and the Jungle conditioner. Both of them smell very good 😀 The Veganese is more for light and thin hair. Or for my hair, where I want to use it as a conditioner on my scalp. I do this once a week and since it’s not as nourishing as other conditioners, it keeps my hair from getting greasy right away. The jungle is a very nourishing one, which I use for my dry hair-ends. I’m in love with both of them! ❤

Check them out 😀

Yeeaay ich war gestern wiedermal im Lush und hab mir 2 neue Haarpflegespülungen gekauft. 😀

Aber zuerst: wenn du nicht weisst was eine Haarpflegespülung ist, oder wie du sie anwenden solltest, schau dir hier meinen letzten Post zu diesem Thema an.

Ich habe euch im April bereits zwei andere Pflegespüulungen von Lush vorgestellt, den American cream und einen Kokos conditioner. Meine Beschreibung zu diesen beiden findet ihr hier.

Dieses Mal habe ich mir den Veganese und den Jungle conditioner gekauft. Beide riechen schonmal richtig toll 😀 Der Veganese conditioner ist eher für dünnes Haar gedacht. Ich verwende ihn für meine Kopfhaut und die Haare am Ansatz einmal die Woche. Da diese Spülung nicht so reichhaltig ist wie die anderen, lässt sich das gut machen, ohne, dass die Haare gleich fettig werden. Den Jungle gebe ich in meine Haarspitzen, dieser ist nämlich super nährend und pflegend. Echt ein toller Kauf, ich liebe sie beide ❤

Probier sie aus 😀
