Banana Bread Muffins (Vegan)

Simple indulgences. These banana bread muffins are perfectly sweet, moist and are bursting with rich banana flavor. They were exactly the thing to satisfy my favorite Schwabe and his boys. Especially on one of those cold and chilly winter days where nobody wants to head outdoors but is ridiculously bored sitting indoors. Puzzles, board games, […]

Inside this apple crumble are a number of tender apples and crumble topping that provides plenty of sweetness and crunch. This is an original German recipe that has been passed down for generations, thanks to my friend Ines’s Oma. It’s a simple recipe that uses just a little more than a handful of ingredients and […]

Easy Gluten-Free Seed Bread

This may be the only gluten-free seed bread recipe you’ll ever need. Bold statement, I know. But really, this probably the easiest bread recipe I’ve ever made. It has a beautiful nutty flavor with aromatic undertones of caraway, anise, fennel and coriander — thanks to a “Brotgewürz” spice mix that’s used for making an authentic-tasting […]

Recipe for Dark Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins (GF) with Coconut, Brown Rice, and Buckwheat Flour - Elle Republic

Dark Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins (GF)

Chocolate chip banana muffins, berry-packed yogurt muffins and classic blueberry muffins are all things that bring me back to my early 20s when I literally lived on muffins. Totally addicted, I ate them almost every day. Monday to Friday that is. Okay, maybe it wasn’t just because I had a thing for muffins… it was, […]

Coconut Cacao Nib Banana Bread with Spelt Flour

Coconut Cacao Nib Banana Bread

This coconut cacao nib banana bread recipe was inspired by Nigella Lawson’s banana bread with cardamom and cocoa nibs. Which sounded VERY inspiring, but in the end I made a totally different banana bread altogether. The only thing that remained the same was the bananas, the eggs and the cacao nibs. I changed pretty much […]

Gluten-Free Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Chocolate Zucchini Bread (Gluten-Free)

Zucchini bread is one of those things I’ve never understood. Carrot cake on the other hand, I can wrap my head around. Mind you, I have some very overly sweet childhood memories of carrot cake slathered in a very thick layer of icing. In contrast, zucchini bread sounds “healthy”. And yes, it is. But I’m […]

Berry Oat Tart (Gluten-Free)

Berry Oat Tart (GF)

The inspiration for this berry oat tart comes from my all-time favorite dessert — a honey rhubarb tart. I loved so much, that I had the urge to bake another tart — this time a little different…one without a crumble and with lots of fresh berries. I simply love the combination of oats, almond, vanilla, […]

gluten-free roasted almond butter bread with banana, cacao nibs and unsweetened flaked coconut

Roasted Almond Butter Bread (Gluten-Free)

My new favorite bread. A grain-free gluten-free roasted almond butter bread with banana, cacao nibs and unsweetened flaked coconut. First of all, what I think makes it so special is the homemade roasted almond butter. Which by the way, is super easy to make yourself. Not only is homemade almond butter cheaper than the store-bought […]

Braided Chocolate Spelt Bread

Braided Chocolate Spelt Bread

Easter is coming and I was asked to make a Züpfe (Swiss braided bread) or Dreikönigskuchen (Secret Surprise Bread, as I like to call it). Yes, it is full of surprises. The “three kings cake” is a traditional sweet bread roll that has a special hidden treat (heatproof of course) baked inside one of the […]

Protein Powered Seed Loaf

This is exactly the kind of bread I love. Bird seed bread. Yes, here’s a bread that’s loaded with sunflower seeds, flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, and chia seeds. A substantial bread, with a fabulous nutty flavor, one that’s great on it’s own. My favorite bread. One that also makes a great piece of […]
