    For all my mama friends, you guys are going to go crazy over this banana bread.

    And for anyone who just loves banana bread, you can still make and enjoy this recipe too – I promise it is for everyone!

    It goes without saying that I am more than obsessed with baking different banana bread recipes on the blog. We have everything from vegan and paleo ones, to nut free, to cinnamon roll banana breads. Oh and don’t forget the banana bread oatmeal bake. There are oh so many recipes that are created purely based off my love for banana bread.

    But today we are merging two things I am passionate about in life: banana bread + breastfeeding.

    I have been breastfeeding for almost 3 months now and that is quite the adventure. I have been sharing a lot with you guys over on Instagram and there is a lot more to come here on the blog, but for now let’s just focus on the banana bread and the ingredients we use to make it!

    This Gluten-free Lactation Chocolate Chip Banana Bread is made with ingredients to help support a healthy milk supply. I use foods like sprouted rolled oats, which are said to help mama’s supply. Plus they are even filled with fiber! I also add in a product that I am so passionate about – Majka.

    You have seen me posting about Majka’s products (specifically their bites) over on Instagram a lot over the past couple of months. I truly am so impressed with the products they create and seeing how much they have helped my supply makes them such a huge part of my daily eats right now. I usually find products like these gimmicky and don’t buy into the whole thing. But I can confidently say, these work for me. I cannot say they will work for every mama but they’re so worth a try you guys!

    Majka was derived from the Bosnian translation of mother. The two founders are so passionate about helping mamas have the best journey during their two breastfeeding. They created products to help make this time as easy as possible by having products you can easily incorporate into your life and eats. Continue Reading

    Has anyone been tracking the number of banana bread recipes on the blog yet?

    I lost count awhile back but the possibilities of new banana bread combinations are seriously endless. Especially when my friends (aka you guys) are requesting different types for certain dietary restrictions or allergies. I gotcha covered!

    Welcome the newest banana bread recipe to the crew – One-Bowl Paleo Vegan Chocolate Chip Banana Bread. A grain-free, gluten-free and vegan recipe and all you have to do is dirty one big a$$ bowl in the kitchen.

    I’m the queen of making a big mess while baking and recipe testing but when it comes to just making something for fun or because I am craving it, I’m not trying to dirty a dozen bowls over here to make one recipe. And I know you guys can relate 😉

    I mix in my go-to refined sugar-free dark chocolate from Hu Kitchen for the sweet chocolatey goodness in this recipe. I tend to mix it into the batter and sprinkle some chunks on top. It’s the best way to do it so you get chocolate inside and on the outside of the banana bread (chocolate in every single bite!). Continue Reading

    It feels like forever ago since I have shared a baked oatmeal recipe with you guys!

    Oatmeal bakes were actually one of the first recipes I used to make when I started experimenting in the kitchen. I loved how it combined a little cake-like dish with oatmeal for breakfast and how easy they are to make. I used to just toss in any mix-in’s and things we had in the fridge or pantry and make so many different types of baked oatmeals.

    This one though is hands down my favorite. I guess it could be because it has a bit of a banana bread theme (shocker) and I also think the ratio of oats to the other ingredients used are on point. It just soft on the inside and the outside has a little crunchy edge and “crust” of sorts.

    The best part about this recipe though? It is ready in just 25 minutes and you’ll get 4-5 servings out of it so you are set for the week! I love adding a slice to my breakfast plate with some coconut yogurt, fresh fruit and granola on top. It feels like I’m eating cake for breakfast or a big oatmeal cookie of sorts. Plus this recipe has an extra boost to it from the collagen peptides I add to the batter. Continue Reading

    Are you guys ready for a marathon of recipes the first couple weeks of February?

    We are quickly approaching the due date of our little dude (2/22) and I have front loaded a month’s worth of recipes into the first couple of weeks of the month. Sure, he could make his arrival tomorrow for all I know but at least I know my friends (aka you) have some delicious eats to keep you satisfied!

    I’m planning to take a “maternity leave” from 2/1-4/1, but TBH I have no idea what that means when you are working for yourself. Hopefully no emails (or limited emailing) and no new recipe development. Just eating as fuel, posting content that I prepped for you and just in the moment eats and loving with our bub. We shall see.

    But let’s get to this Vegan Cinnamon Roll Banana Bread because I have been oh so excited to share this recipe with you guys since I first tested it last month. I truly think this is my favorite banana bread recipe on the blog ever and that is a very bold statement, I know. That’s for a few reasons though…

    This banana bread is unique compared to the others here on the blog. It is a bit more cake-like and has just the right amount of “moist” texture to it. The edges of the bread have a little crispy crunch and the flavors of banana bread swirled with cinnamon coconut sugar truly make me swoon. We are combining two of the best kind of breakfast recipes into one, what is not to love?

    This Cinnamon Roll Banana Bread is also gluten-free, nut-free and plant-based so it is very allergy-friendly for most. I use brown rice flour (one of my faves for gluten-free and nut-free baking!). I also bake this with flax egg and extra virgin coconut oil from Garden of Life. By now, you guys know that those two items are staples over here in the kitchen. I use them in so many recipes every week and the ground flaxseed is super versatile. You can sprinkle it on top of yogurt, blend in smoothies, make flax eggs from it, anything! And you know the low down with coconut oil, so I won’t bore you guys. Just be sure to melt it then let it cool before adding to the batter! Continue Reading

    Paleo Chocolate Chunk Tahini Banana Bread (vegan)

    It has been awhile since we shared a brand new loaf of BANANA BREAD here on the blog.

    My main b, the original eats here on the blog and by far my most favorite recipe to bake, photograph and EAT.

    I’m extra excited to share this new banana bread recipe with you guys because we are using some new ingredients in this loaf and this recipe is paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free and it is entirely plant-based. Usually paleo and plant-based recipes aren’t the most common, especially when it comes to baking since the consistency can be off, but not in this banana bread!

    This Paleo Chocolate Chunk Tahini Banana Bread is naturally sweetened from banana and maple syrup. The dark chocolate is even refined sugar free (more on that in the recipe!). I use flax egg instead of pasture-raised eggs (but you can sub egg if you prefer) and use almond flour and ground flaxseed for an extra boost of healthy fats and protein.

    But let’s get to my favorite part of the recipe, shall we? I used a new nut milk in this recipe that I haven’t baked with before – Elmhurst®. You may have seen Elmhurst in its classic-looking milk carton in the grocery store back in the day. Well, they’ve been reborn as an exclusively plant-based company and now make a variety of delicious plant milk options ranging from almond, oat, hazelnut, brown rice and even peanut milk! And the best part? The ingredients in their milks are the simplest I have ever seen. I personally love using their unsweetened varieties: almond and hazelnut (which we use today) and the only ingredients are filtered water and nuts. SAY WHAT? Just as clean and simple as if you made it at home! No stabilizers or gums, NADA. Continue Reading

    Chocolate Crumb Banana Bread Bars (vegan)

    We have a new banana bread recipe on the blog friends. But it’s not your usual banana bread recipe…

    For starters it’s not the traditional loaf form and instead made into bars. Making them perfect to snack on all day every day. Plus they are a combination of two of our favorites: crumb cake AND banana bread. Oh and don’t forget the dark chocolate.

    The bottom layer of these bars is a moist (accurate word) banana cake mixed with dark chocolate then on top a slightly sweetened chocolate crumb topping. As soon as I snagged a few bites of the crumbs before they even baked in the oven, I know it was going to be something good.

    These Chocolate Crumb Banana Bread Bars are vegan, gluten-free and nut-free. They are also packed with extra nutrients thanks to Garden of Life flaxseeds, chia seeds and extra virgin coconut oil. I love that all of Garden of Life products are 100% organic and made with quality ingredients. You guys know about my obsession for all of their food, supplements and now their new essential oils. Plus it only seems fitting to share this recipe after having the most magical event with them in Chicago this week!

    It is absolutely amazing to have a brand in the industry who is bringing us products we can trust. I particularly love their Once Daily Prenatal Vitamins and have been taking them since before I was even pregnant. They gave my body extra nutrients when it was trying to become fertile and conceive for the past year + (and the extra hair boost didn’t hurt).  Continue Reading
