Easy Blender Banana Muffins

Blender Banana Muffins

Soft, tender banana muffins made in the blender. Tasty can’t get any easier!

Banana Bread

I make a lot of banana bread. I bake one almost every week. We don’t like to eat ripe banana’s, and even though I keep my banana’s in the fridge to prevent them getting ripe within two days, I still have loads of banana’s that are too ripe for our taste. So I make banana bread a lot. If I still have banana’s left, I cut them uo and freeze them to use in milk shakes, smoothies and instant ice cream. read more

Lemon & Raspberry Mug Cake

Citroen & Frambozen Mug Cake / Lemon & Raspberry Mug Cake

A super moist, lemony, low carb mug cake to satisfy that sudden sweet craving! Guilt-free!

Mug cakes. The new love of my life. Coming to my rescue when I get this sudden craving for cake. Which is usually later in the evening. And of course, those cravings hit when I don’t have a single crumb of cake in the house (yeah, I know, how is that even possible?!). And as I’m then the only one (my husband usually doesn’t fancy cake, only if it involves white chocolate), I make myself a single serve mug cake. read more

Healthified Blondies

Healthified Blondies

Ever heard of blondies? It’s like the blonde sister of a brownie. Sweet, fudgy, totally not good for you. A treat I tremendously enjoy. But just once in a while. And as it’s really one of my favourite treats, I decided to make a somewhat healthier version.

Small batch

Not only did I swap a few ingredients for a little bit healthier options (let’s be real though, it’s still cake with sugar), I only made it small. No overeating. Unless you eat the whole thing in one go. If you think this is too small, simply double the recipe. read more

Healthier Banana Bread

Healthy Banana Bread

This truly is the BEST healthy banana bread out there! Gluten free, no oil/butter, no (refined) sugar!

Gosh, I have tried so many banana bread recipes, I can’t even count them. Some were too dry, most of them were too ‘banana’, too dense/moist/mushy, overly sweet, wouldn’t rise… There is one banana bread though, that is the BEST banana bread, if you don’t mind using sugar, regular flour etc, and it’s this banana bread by Nikki from Chef In Training. This is serious business, if it comes to banana breads. I will gladly make this one again. And again. And again. read more

Healthier Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Whipped Cream

Healthier Chocolate Cake

Healthy + Chocolate + Cake? Count me in!!!

New take on chocolate cake

I was actually going to post my very BEST healthy banana bread recipe first, but since I’ve posted a picture of this deliciously decadent chocolate cake, that is actually relatively healthy, on Instagram, I keep getting requests to please please please share the recipe.

So here we go. I was actually so extremely pleased with my new recipe for a healthy banana bread (that really can only be described as THE BEST healthy banana bread out there, but now you’ll  have to wait for it), that I thought I’d try something similar with a chocolate cake. read more

Sugar Free Vanilla Cake

Sugarfree vanilla Cake

A plain vanilla cake is probably the most classic of cakes. And no matter how plain or whatever occasion, a vanilla cake will always be appreciated.

Sugar free

But full of butter and sugar, it’s a treat I don’t have very often. And while I was craving vanilla cake, I decided to try to make a sugar free version using Tagatesse. Tagatesse is a sweetener that is twice as sweet as regular white sugar. For sweetness, it means simply halving the amount of sugar you would normally use. read more

Apple Almond Cake

Low Carb Apple Almon Cake

Moist, delicious apple almond cake, you won’t believe this cake is healthy!

If I have to make a list of my favorite comfort food, apple cake (preferably straight out of the oven) definitely makes it to the top ten. But traditional apple cake or apple pie usually equals carb and sugar heaven, even without an optional mandatory serving of vanilla ice cream and whipped cream.

Healthier version

After a few attempts to make an equally delicious treat, I think I’ve come up with a recipe that will hit all the right spots, even though it’s a healthier version . Taste-wise, there was nothing really wrong with the first attempts. But the results were either too eggy for me (more baked omelet kind of texture) or too dry or too crumbly. And I am a bit fuzzy when it comes to texture. read more

White Chocolate Buttercream

White Chocolate Buttercream

Last week, our oldest son turned 7. He had his birthday party with his friends at an indoor playground. Three hours of fun, ice cream and pancakes. With an “Indian” theme, where they got to color shirts (and keep them afterwards), got an Indian headdress with feathers and stripes on their cheeks. Total exhaustion afterwards :).

For school, I had made mini donuts. Sam was so chuffed. He said that no-one had ever brought donuts for a birthday. Most kids bring cupcakes, cake or waffles. Sometimes fruit skewers. But Sam wanted something different. He actually wanted Oscar the Grouch cupcakes, as his little brother had Cookie Monster cupcakes when he turned 5. But with the school’s policy of healthier treats and preferably NO buttercream and the like, I told him that we had to do something more plain. He was a bit disappointed, but when we came up with ‘never before brought to school’ donuts, he was happy. He didn’t dismiss the Oscar the Grouch cakes though. Nope. He decided that since he couldn’t have the cupcakes for school, I could make him a birthday cake for his party at home, with the family. Yeah sure, why not. read more

White Bean Blondies

White Bean Blondies

So yesterday, I made black bean brownies. Much to my husband’s dismay, who doesn’t like chocolate cake or brownies. Yes, I know, how is that even possible. He was hoping I would make something that he would like as well. The disappointment written all over his face.

Puppy eyes

But he was intrigued by the fact that I had made brownies using beans instead of flower. He wondered whether I could make a white cake as well. As in: anything but chocolate cake. Man, I had just cleaned up everything. Then he simply looked at me with puppy eyes, pleading… Alright. How about white bean blondies instead of black bean brownies. read more

Black Bean Brownies

Fudgy brownies, made with black beans… gluten and refined sugar free!

Black Bean Brownies

Ugh, I’m so frustrated! No, no, no, it has nothing to do with cooking or baking. Have you ever sold something online? Well, I have. It’s an easy way to get rid of stuff you don’t need or want anymore. Instead of throwing good stuff out with the trash, I either sell stuff at low prices or give it away for free to people who can or want to still use it. read more
