Amazingly Flavorful & Moist Banana Bread

Please excuse the chocolate mess atop the mini loafs… I had only a dark chocolate bar, which I hammered into bits, and that led to the lovely look of splatters you see. May not be aesthetically pleasing, but holy sh*t sooooo good!!

Shoutout to Lee for this great recipe over at Fit Foodie Finds, I made a slight adjustment, instead of walnuts I did chocolate bits!

This was super quick to put together and soooo moist and banana-y, the whole family was happy eating this one.

Ingredients:

Dry

  • 1¾ cups white or whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup  sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts or chocolate chips (for topping)

Wet

  • 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flaxseed + 3 tablespoon warm water)
  • 3 medium ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup almond milk, unsweetened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF and spray a 9-inch loaf pan or mini loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. First, prepare your flax egg. Place 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed and 3 tablespoons of warm water into a small bowl. Whisk and set aside for 15 minutes to thicken.
  3. Next, mix all of the dry ingredients (except for walnuts) into a medium-sized bowl. Mix until combined and set aside.
  4. Check your flax egg. If it has thickened and become goopy, you’re ready to rock and roll! If not, wait a few more minutes.
  5. Place bananas into a separate large bowl and use a fork to mash, making sure to leave some nice sweet chunks of banana. Then, add the flax egg and mix. Add the rest of the wet ingredients to the bowl and mix again.
  6. Slowly add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until combined.
  7. Transfer batter into the loaf pan and make sure that batter is evenly spread out. Sprinkle walnuts or chocolate chips over the top of the banana bread and place into the oven.
  8. Bake banana bread at 350ºF for 45-50 minutes if using 9in pan or 20-25 minutes if using mini loaf pan.
  9. Remove from oven, let cool for around 15 minutes and then remove from the loaf pan to continue cooling.

Ultimate Vegan Breakfast Burrito

Who wants more potatoes?! Since they seem to make it into every breakfast I cook, here is another wonderful recipe with spuds b*tches. The ultimate breakfast burrito, mmm.

I made this a spicy burrito, but don’t worry, the weak ones can skip the hot sauce. (;
Also, make sure you follow instructions on cooking the potatoes because if you stir too much they’ll get soggy, unless that’s your thing, follow along.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 red onion, diced
  • 2 russet potatoes, diced
  • 2 small sweet potatoes, diced
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp ground chili pepper
  • 1 tbsp tapatio *optional
  • 1/4 c vegetable broth OR dash of salt
    *the veggie broth adds salt as well as keeps things from sticking without the extra oil… so if you use salt instead, add an extra tbsp oil*
  • 1/2 15oz can of black beans, rinsed and drained
  • tortillas
  • salsa
  • avocado
  • cilantro (optional)

Instructions:

  1. In a large pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat for about 30 seconds, add in the garlic and onion. Cook for about 1 minute or until onion is soft and fragrant.
  2. Add in the potatoes, spices, and optional tapatio. Mix, then add in the veggie broth or the oil, mix once more, and let sit and cook for about 10 minutes. Flip the mixture a good amount of times and cook another 10 minutes without mixing. If the potatoes are still too hard, repeat this until crispier and soft.
  3. Add in your beans and cook for about 2 minutes to heat them through. Then they are ready!
  4. Heat up your tortilla, fill with the potatoes, add in avocado, cilantro, salsa, and whatever else your little heart desires. Enjoy that sh*t.

Holy Sh*t Breakfast Tacos

Ummmmmmmm these are bomb af… there isn’t much more to say. You will not be disappointed and won’t want to share. But there is definitely enough to feed everybody. Try these b*tches out.

P.S. I’m really stepping my food photography game up… these look fiyaaaaa (;

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeno, minced
  • 3 red potatoes, diced size of dime
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 package of soyrizo
  • 1/2-1 14.4 oz can of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 handfuls of spinach
  • tortillas

Secret Sauce:

  • 1/2 avocado
  • 4 tbsp sriracha
  • 2 limes
  • chili powder
  • 1/4c water to thin

Optional Toppings:

  • salsa
  • avocado
  • cilantro

Instructions:

  1. Heat olive oil on medium-high heat in a large pan, once heated add onion and jalapeno, cooking until fragrant and soft. Add in potatoes and spices, stir and let cook 10 minutes without stirring, use a spatula and flip everything and cook another 10 minutes without stirring.
  2. While the potatoes cook make that saucy sauce. In a food processor add all ingredients and blend. If it isn’t thin enough add water until it’s the consistency you want. What’s nice about this sauce is you can add whatever you need to fix it to your liking. Need more spice just add sriracha and mix, more lime, add it in.
  3. Check your potatoes and see if they are tender by using a fork to pierce them. If not, do five minute increments of letting them cook and flipping with the spatula. Add in the soyrizo when the potatoes are ready, stir and cook about five minutes. Now for your spinach, fold it in until they’ve all wilted down about 30 seconds to a minute. It’s ready to stuff in some tortillas!
  4. Heat your tortillas either on the pan or microwave, pile this deliciousness on and top with the saucy sauce. Add any other toppings you’d like!
