Peanut Butter Protein Pancakes

I managed to whip up these easy peanut butter protein pancakes last week before my little family’s world was turned upside down by Sunday. Today is my birthday. I turned 35. I am celebrating it with a heart half heavy and half full. Three days ago we received a phone call that my mother in law passed away suddenly and tragically at the young age of 67. My poor husband was on Vancouver-Tel Aviv flight 15 hours later. My heart is breaking for him and his sister but I…

Banana Zucchini Muffins with Chocolate Chunks

There are 3 good reasons (besides lemon zucchini muffins) why you would want to sweat in the kitchen in July’s blasting heat. First of all, your freckling bananas are probably “dying” to be used. You are walking around the fruit basket frantically thinking “What to do with you? What to do?”. Secondly, I can guarantee you have a zucchini in your fridge you have no idea what to do with. Thirdly, you need snacks. More snacks. Who doesn’t need snacks? It is July. You are frantically running around trying to…

Mixed Berry Ice Cream Recipe

Dairy free ice cream made with coconut milk and your choice of berries, fresh or frozen. Because it is March I used frozen organic cherries from Costco and local blueberries. It is a no churn ice cream recipe so no ice cream machine required. I have been experimenting with coconut milk ice cream all year round but not all attempts have been successful thus I haven’t shared. Ice cream is also a bit off season in March but it is one of my favourite treats which I can…

Gluten Free Crackers Recipe

Oh boy, this gluten free crackers recipe has quite a story and detailed video instructions. Woot-woot, my second video of the year! Thanks to my wonderful assistant, Eboni, I’m on a total roll in the kitchen. About assistant position…I would like to thank everyone who applied! Your emails were so generous, honest and filled with your own each personal story on how you began eating clean. Seriously, truly inspiring. I decided to thank everyone in one post because I kept putting off replying to each email which is becoming…

Avocado Mint Fudge Bars

I seem to be always behind the masses including avocado fudge and coconut oil fudge. I could never play a team sport. I hated team projects at university. I think I could never work for someone either. I really like to write and sing my own tune and so far it has worked for me. Christmas just passed and here I am with avocado peppermint fudge bars in January. Or I see so many food websites posting recipe videos and I love watching them (do you?) but inside I feel…

Banana Chia Pudding

I posted this banana chia pudding a few years back but pictures and recipe itself could have been better. A radio host said “January is like Monday of the year” while we were returning from a day of skiing a few days ago. So true, because I keep making and craving chia pudding. You definitely won’t find me doing it on a weekend. On a weekend I recover from a crazy week in the kitchen and we survive on Alex’s cooking and organic quick prep Costco finds (I spill…

Whole Wheat Flour Banana Bread

If you can find a more perfect whole wheat flour banana bread recipe sweetened only with 1/3 cup maple syrup/honey and not using a cup of vegetable oil, feel free to leave it in the comments. Your perfect banana bread should be moist and the top should be cracking, gloss-ing and sticking. And when you take a bite it melts in your mouth. That in my world is a perfect healthy whole wheat banana bread and you are looking at it right now!

Banana Coconut Flour Bread with Peanut Butter

I made banana coconut flour bread without any added sugar, not even maple syrup or honey. Sounds just like coconut oil fudge from the other day, right?! I do not like to post similar recipes in a row but I had 8 bananas laying in a cupboard waiting to ripen, so they were all ready at once. I have to hide them from my monkeys. Meet 9 lbs of coconut flour from my pantry. A few years ago I was on a gluten free kick for a bit and…

Flourless Pumpkin Pancakes

Once a week I like to serve breakfast for dinner just to give myself a break. Or even on a lazy Sunday night like with these flourless pumpkin pancakes which I whipped up after a crisp evening Fall walk. I felt energized and fresh (I tried hard not to inhale laundry VOCs). After a Thanksgiving feast we had past weekend (so technically my Sunday night was Monday) I felt like a fit recipe without sugar and flour. I like to make 3 kinds of recipes: healthified classics, my own…
