Hazelnut Cookie Dough (sweet hummus)

healthy cookie dough

I still remember those days in the kitchen when my mom was baking cake and my sister and I were helping fighting about who gets to lick the bowl.

So an egg-free cookie dough is needed. Now while eating a whole batch of […]

Go nuts granola

I mean chocolate muesli is good (vegan chocolate muesli of course) but changing up your food every now and again is even better. But in the last few years I have tested a bunch of different granolas.

Chocolate pancakes

I love Sundays, I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before. To me Sundays are all about sleeping in, spending hours in bed even after waking up and having a decadent breakfast once I actually manage to get out of bed. Most Sundays, my treat of choice are pancakes they are so easy to make and are super versatile. I love experimenting with different flavor combinations in my pancakes and this time I wanted something super chocolaty. Ingredients: For the pancakes: 1 cup rolled oats 1/2 banana 1 – 2 tbsp cacao powder 1 1/4 cups almond milk pinch of baking soda For the […]
