It’s super easy to prepare and […]

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 […]

Love them or loathe them, pumpkin and winter squash are a sure sign that fall has arrived. Close relatives, there are hundreds of varieties, and they come in endless shapes, sizes, colors and patterns.

Crunchy Carob Buckwheat (Kasha) Granola with Raw Cocoa and Almonds

Carob Buckwheat Granola

The first thing you should know about buckwheat is that it’s gluten free. The second thing you should know about it is that roasted buckwheat is called “kasha”. Of course it’s not necessary to roast buckwheat, but doing so brings out its wonderful nutty flavor. Buckwheat in any form is terrific when it’s transformed into […]
