Peanut Butter. Banana. Chocolate. Yes, you’ve died and gone to cookie heaven.

Some days just call for chocolate chip cookies. Or tubs of peanut butter. Or both.

These cookies are meant for such days.

Simultaneously, imagine a peanut butter/banana/chocolate chip combo. They can certainly make one of the more perfect cookies in this world.

Banana Buckwheat Pancakes

Pancakes are the quintessential breakfast food, but they are often made with highly processed flour and sugar, which can leave your blood sugar crashing after a few hours.

For heartier and more balanced pancakes I pair all-purpose flour with buckwheat flour. Buckwheat is gluten-free, high in fiber and protein, and rich in magnesium and other heart healthy minerals. Buckwheat flour is a great substitute for wheat-based flour. It is light, mixes well, and has a distinctive and earthy flavor. It’s a true winner for people with celiac disease or milder gluten intolerances. In this recipe you could nix the all-purpose flour all together and use almond flour or rice flour in its place.

Vegan Banana Pancakes Recipe

So you think pancakes must be made with eggs, milk and butter? You think that a pancake made without these crucial ingredients is bound to taste bland/rubbery/weird? And you think that a no egg pancake will result in a crumbly, devoid of texture disaster? Furthermore, why on earth would you want to eat an egg-less, milk-less pancake when you’re a. not vegan, b. vehemently opposed to anything remotely healthy and c. you like eggs and milk in my pancakes already – sheesh!

Listen,I feel ya’, I really do. Guess what? I thought them too. I didn’t want a vegan pancake coming anywhere near me at one point in my life and I took Julia Child’s advice a bit too literally when it came to cream and butter. Therefore, I think I am  more than qualified to judge a pancake when it lands on my plate. Read More


Banana Smoothie with a Boost Recipe

Normally my five ingredient column features simplified recipes.  Featuring whole foods, five ingredient recipes are great because they save you time, money, and are generally low-calorie.  This smoothie is no different, but instead of paring down a recipe, I added a few ingredients to make this Banana Smoothie recipe more filling, and capable of keeping you full throughout the entire day.  It gets a boost from Flaxseed Meal, which has Omega-3s and a healthy dose of fiber.

There’s no midday crash with this smoothie, and you won’t hear your stomach growling at 11 am.  Tweak it as you will, with cinnamon, nutmeg, or a dash of vanilla.  Flaxseed meal can be found at most grocery stores, I use Bob’s Red Mill.  If you can only find whole flax seeds just blend a minute longer.
