Who does not love cookies, that are crispy, chewy and soft at the same time? I highly doubt you will be able to find such a person. The recipe, that I'm about to share with you, is kind of special for me, I made my very first cookies following this recipe! They turned out to be so incredibly delicious, that I'm baking them regularly ever since. Keep in mind, that they are not low-fat, sugar-free nor gluten-free. They taste exactly like traditional cookies or even better, but are not the healthies option. Personally, I believe that balanced lifestyle is the key. Without further ado, let's get started!

  • 2 cups of rolled oats
  • 1 cup of wholewheat flour 
  • 1 cup of cane sugar
  • 1 banana
  • 120 g of vegan butter
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon 
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • 100 g of dark chocolate chips(make sure it doesn't contain milk)
  • sunflowers seeds, rasins, nuts (it's all up to you)
Preheat oven to 180 C. Combine flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in one bowl. Beat margarine and cane sugar in another bowl. Add a mashed banana and beat thoroughtly until creamy. Beat in the flour mixture. Pour oats, chocolate chips and addings of your choice into the bowl and combine using a spoon.
Form cookies and place them onto baking sheets and bake in the oven for 10-15 mins. 

Bon appetit!

Although the summer is already over, I still enjoy eating ice cream, especially for breakfast. It doesn't sound too healthy, does it? Well, ice creams are wrongly associated with processed, unhealthy, junk foods. Whereas you can make them using only one, healthy ingredient! Maybe, some of you have already heard about nice cream (or nana ice cream). I guess it is not a surprise then, that the only one ingredient we will be using for this recipe are bananas. There are many variations of this recipe, you can add cocoa powder to make your ice creams chocolaty, or dates with maple syrup to make it caramely (and still plant-based!), berries, coconut flakes or whatever you feel like adding (be creative, you can never go wrong with nice cream!). Today, however, I would like to share with you the basic recipie, because I find these ice creams incredibly delicious by itself, so do not hesitate and make yourself a nice bowl of nice cream, you won't regret it, I promise! :)

  • Frozen bananas (use as many as you like, I usually use 4)

    Put your bananas into the freezer overnight (preferable for at least 8-9 hours). The next morning defrost them for 10-20 mins (depending on how good blender you have), then place them into the blender (as I've mentioned before you can add cocoa powder, berries or dates to make a different flavour) and blend until desirable consistency of ice creams! (if you don't have a good working blender, you can add some soy milk or water)

Place the ready product into the bowl and add some toppings (eg. chia seeds, berries, date chunks, chocolate chips).
And there you have your healthy, delicious ice creams, that you can enjoy for a breakfast without a feel of guilt.  

Bon appetit!

I have always been a huge fan of coffee, black, white, with steamed milk and most importantly: coffee with whipped cream. When I went vegan I didn't have a problem with giving up a cheese nor regular milk, but whipped cream on my coffee, oh man that was a real struggle. But then I came up with this recipe and it literally changed my life! When my friends are coming over, I usually use this recipe and everyone seems to be loving it, so I thought I would share this with you guys, since it is much healthier than coffee with tons of sugar, hormones and pus on top. I hope I convinced you enough :)

Ingredients :
(this recipe makes 2 portions)

  • double espresso (you can also go for a grain coffee, if you're avoiding caffeine)
  • 1 banana
  • 8 small dried dates (you can use fresh, but I run out)
  • 1 can of coconut milk (put it to the fridge for at least 12 hours before making coffee)
  • 150 ml of soy milk (or any other plant milk of your choice)
  • 1 tsp of cacao powder (you can replace it with carob powder as well)
  • 2 tbsp of coconut sugar 
The secret trick is to keep your coconut milk in the fridge for long enough, so you can separate milk from water. After at least 12 hours in the fridge, open a can and firstly put out the milk (it supposed to be very thick!) using a spoon and at the bottom you will be left with coconut water. We will be using both water and milk for this recipe! Place your banana, dates, soy milk, coconut water and cacao powder into your blender and blend until smooth. Pour the coffee into glasses. Now it's time to make our whipped cream! All you have to do is mix coconut milk with some coconut sugar (you can use any type of sugar, or even don't use any, depends on your preferences) until desirable consistency. Place it on your coffee, you can also sprinkle some cacao powder on top to make it look even more fancy and ... your coffee is ready to enjoy with someone special! :)

Bon appetit!
