Hey everyone

Hope you are all good. Today I have for you a vegan pancake recipe from Eat Smart by Niomi Smart. They are supper quick, easy, healthy, and taste amazing.

I think they are perfect for breakfast any day of the week because they only take roughly 10 minutes to make. They would be perfect for school, sleepovers and work breakfasts.

What you will need to make 10 pancakes:

  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 90ml soy/almond milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

Firstly you will need to place into a NutriBullet your rolled oats and blend them into a powder. Then add all of the other ingredients. I used 1 defrosted banana but you could use a fresh one.

Then all you need to do is in a frying pan melt some butter and place the mixture into the pan. let the pancake cook for a while until you flip them as they are a bit fragile. Once they are cooked serve with your favourite topping. I went with frozen blueberries and I personally think that they taste amazing, you could also add banana, maplesyrup or strawberries.

I hope you have enjoyed this weeks post and if you have any other recipes you think I would like, I would love to hear in the comments below.

Hope you have the best day ♥♥♥

 

Quinoa Chips

Hey Lovelies,

Hope you are all well, today I have for you a quick and simple snack idea, Quinoa Chips. I feel like quinoa has really come into the latest health food trend so I thought it would be the perfect time to try this recipe. The original recipe is from Laura Teodora.

I love that is it supper quick and healthy and is a snack that is home made and still tastes amazing. I feel that when you are feeling a bit peckish it is soo easy to go to the pantry and pull out a box of chips or crackers. This got me thinking about all the unnatural flavouring and unknown ingredients that are hidden inside, So I decided to make my own.

What you will need:

  • ½ grams of quinoa
  • 60 grams of flour
  • 2 Tablespoons of olive oil
  • Flavouring: Salt, paprika, herbs
  • Baking paper

Makes roughly 20 chips

First what you will need to do is cook the Quinoa, the packet should have instructions on it. The Quinoa I used said to simmer ½ cup quinoa to 1 cup water or until the quinoa is well covered. The place on a stove and simmer for about 20 minutes or until the quinoa has soaked up all the water.

Then in a small jug combine all other ingredients and using a stick blender blend until a smooth consistency, I would recommend adding water to make the mixture wetter and a runny like consistency ( in the picture above they are too thick and glugy). Using a spoon place small piles and using the back of the spoon spread into a chip like shape.

Then with you flavouring of choice sprinkle on the top. Then in a preheated oven cook at 180ºC cook for 20 minutes or until hardened and crunchy.

And then you’re done. I feel that this is a super quick, easy and healthy way to snack throughout the day and tastes so good with some dip on the side.
