Banana Bread

Banana bread is one of the most delicious breads we have tasted. It is moist, it is delicious, it has a higher nutritional content than the conventional bread, contains over 50g of protein (per loaf) and it does not require a topping such as butter or jam.

This bread works well for breakfast, as a snack and as a dessert. It can be frozen for later consumption and it keeps in the fridge for about a week (although it might harden a little when lower than room temperature).

Our banana bread recipe is perfect for any day and anytime so, without further ado, here’s our recipe.

Bon Appétit!

4th of July Ideas: Quinoa-Oat Chia Crackers with a Cashew Cream Cheese

Crackers and cream cheese. What a classic snack and party appetiser!

These are not your average crackers. They have added nutrients through the quinoa flour oats and the array of other ingredients used. They are refined sugar-free. However, they are so delicious!

The cream cheese was made from cashews. In general, I hate nuts. However, I still invested in developing this recipe and it turned out amazing. Those who love cashews and tried it said that they couldn’t tell it was cashew-based. This was not just because of its taste, but because of its creaminess too. This cashew cheese can go from a cracker spread to a bagel spread, dip and almost whatever you would normally use cream cheese for.

Nutrient-wise, this recipe contains vitamin A, thiamin (vitamin B-1), riboflavin (vitamin B-2), niacin (vitamin B-3), pantothenic acid (vitamin B-5), pyridoxamine (vitamin B-6), biotin (vitamin B-7), folate (vitamin B-9),  cobalamin (vitamin B-12), vitamin C, ergocalciferol (vitamin D-2), alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E), gamma-tocopherol, delta-tocopherol, vitamin K, choline, copper, calcium, beta-carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin, magnesium, molybdenum, manganese, phosphorus, selenium, potassium, phytosterols, omega-3 fatty acids, omega-6 fatty acids, zinc, iron and fibre. As usual, an elaboration of each nutrient can be found in the Nutrient Index.

Let’s get on to the recipe!
