Breads

Thin Banana Protein Bread

I have been craving banana bread for a while. I have never baked Banana bread before so I decided to keep the ingredients short and sweet, meaning not in a large amount. It turned out really well. It filled the house with an amazing aroma when baking in the oven. It was nice and moist and had a great banana flavour. Of course it was best when still warm from the oven. Now I am looking forward to trying some variations. I am thinking of adding nuts, fruits or 90% dark chocolate chocolate. Obviously, to make the bread thicker and more of a ‘bread’ bread double, triple or quarter the ingredient amount.

Tip “the riper the banana, the more flavour you will get”

Serves 5

Ingredients:

100g banana

2 scoops Herbalife PPP (Personalised Protein Powder)

80g Oatbran

100g Apple sauce

1tsp baking powder

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 200 Degrees

Blend the dry ingredients in a large bowl and the wet ingredients in a small bowl.

Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredient bowl and mix.

Pore the ingredients into a non-stick bread form and put in into the oven.

Let it stay in the oven for 20 min.

Apple Vanilla Spiced Bread

Happy 1st of December all.

Here is a Christmassy recipe from me.

I am probably not alone on this, but I love Christmas it’s my favourite time of the year. More than my birthday! Why? Well a very large majority of the world celebrate it, and at the same time. The whole family is together. It’s cold and wet but the atmosphere is still happy. It is the only time of the ear we all eat breakfast together for a few days and no one is working! My parents are a bit of workaholics but during the three days over Christmas there is no work, the occasional email check happens all the time and this will happen for me as well so I understand this.

But the best of all is when you are able to give someone a present that they have wanted, or when you surprise a loved one with something they were not expecting and are able to see tears of joy in their eyes. There is nothing that can beat that happy emotional day.

So here is a nice recipe you can share with your family without the guilt!

Swedish Saffron/ Cinnamon Buns

Yes, everyone Swedish will know this recipe and really understand the yummines that these babies have. However, the normal ones are often loaded with sugar, fat and unhealthy ingredients so I’ve decided to change mine into some delicious and nutritious buns. These however, does not contain Saffron. What? It says Saffron in the title! I know, I know, but I didn’t really know what to call this bread so I included it was the shape of the buns are like the Swedish saffron buns.
