SO I had lots of ripe bananas to use and the first thing that came to my mind was to do banana bread! But banana bread does not always equal healthy and clean. So I searched the webs to find a good recipe that is not too bad and I found an healthy alternative packed with protein. I stole it from Eat Yourslef Skinny but adapted a little bit. I added a little bit of cacao to make it a bit more chocolaty and used plain greek yogurt instead. This banana bread is healthy and very close to clean. If I had coconut flour on hand I would’ve use that instead of whole wheat flour but eh, we do what we can with what we have! SO here it goesss
If you are like me, you are careful of what you eat, well… most of the time. So when you watch a movie, or spend a night in, and you feel the urge for something salty, comforting and good, like chips… here’s the alternative. These baked potatoes will satisfy your urges and will keep you happy. Homemade chips taste even better than grocery stores chips! I have to be honest here, I thought that when I bought these potatoes, they were sweet potatoes(dumb moment). I actually planned on making baked sweet potatoes, when I cut the first sliced I was like… Uh-oh. But they turned out very delicious. You can make this recipe with whatever potatoes you feel like eating. But sweet potatoes must be better…I’ll make sure I buy the right potatoes next time…
Baked Potato Chips
The ingredients arreeeee:
2-3 medium-size potatoes, sliced in 1/4 inch-thick(or whatever quantity you feel like)
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp chili powder(or whatever other spice you like)
First, preheat oven at 400° and line two baking sheet.
Make sure to wash well the potatoes before slicing them. In a large bowl, put potato slices and add the olive oil, chili powder and salt. Toss with your hands to combine.
Spread out potato slices on baking sheets and then place one baking sheet in the center of the oven and the other on the bottom. Bake for about 25 to 30 minutes, or until crispy on the outside and little bit soft in the middle. Flip potato chips halfway through. Let dry for 5 minutes and sprinkle with a little bit of more salt. Put them in a bowl and serve!
Remember this Egg bake recipe? Well I found an on-the-go alternative. You know how like good healthy low calories meal that I can make under 20 minutes… Well this is the perfect recipe for that. It really takes only 15 minute big maximum! Since I train a lot I need to eat a lot protein to repair my muscle after each workout. I don’t feel like taking supplement so whenever I can combine good protein in an after workout meal, I’m happy. This meal will also keep you full and will give you energies for the rest of your day.
Spinach, Eggs and Feta Wrap.

I seriously think that every time I cook something new, it’s better than the other recipes I’ve ever done. This brownie batter pancake recipe is seriously to die for plus it’s vegan, healthy and low-cal(minus the icing, you can replace with jam). I had to whip up something fast for the icing because I didn’t have any maple syrup but I thought it was even better with the icing. Perfect way start to my day! And you can add whatever you feel like! bananas, strawberries, nuts, and many more. I loved it so much I think I will do it again tomorrow. This recipe is only one serving. In the picture it may appear big but the pancakes are actually mini. It makes about 6 -7 mini pancakes. I adapted my recipe on this one from skinnytaste and I added the icing.
Brownie Batter Pancakes with Icing
The ingredients arreeeee:
1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tbsp + 1 tsp sugar
pinch of salt
1 1/2 tbsp unsweetened apple sauce
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
5 1/2 tbsp almond milk
1/4 cup confectioner sugar
1 tsp melted butter
1 tsp almond milk
First, heat a small pan with a butter flavored cooking spray on medium heat.
In a bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, sugar and salt until well combined. Add the applesauce, vanilla and milk to dry the dry mixture. Mix until well blend.
When the pan is warm, drop the heat to very low. Take a spoon and take a little of the batter and drop in on the pan. It will make a small round. Cook on each side for about 1 minute. Not more. Start again until there’s not batter left. It should make about 6-7 mini pancakes.
For the icing, Mix the sugar, butter and almond milk until desired consistency. Drizzle over the pile of mini pancakes. Serve with fruits and enjoy!
