Easy Vegan Chocolate Pancake recipe for Beginners

Vegan Pancakes for beginners

Ingredients

1/2 cup coconut flour

2 tbsp vegan protein powder (If you don’t want to use protein, use 2 tbsp cacao powder for the flavor)

2 flax eggs (mix 2 tbsp ground flaxseed and 5 tbsp water)

1 tsp sea salt

1 tsp baking powder

1 ripe banana (make sure it is really a ripe one!)

1/2 cup almond milk

TIPP: Add some sparkling water for the fluffyness ;)

Method
First mix the water with the flaxseed and let sit for about one hour in the fridge.
Then sift the flour, protein powder (or cacao), salt  and baking powder into a large mixing bowl and stir
it all together. Now mash the banana and add it with the almond milk and the flax eggs to the mixture.
Mix well until the texture is thick.
If it is too thick add more sparkling water. If it is too runny, add more flour.
Now your mixture is ready to be heated up in a pan with some oil. This mixture will make you about 6 pancakes.
ENJOY

My little Detox Sunday with Fit’n’Tasty

Dear followers,

This sunday I had the pleasure to do a one day detox with the awesome juices from Fit’n’tasty

IMG_8650

My first Detox experience was a really good one! To be honest, I always was a little sceptical since the juices I tasted so far all smelled like grass or were just disgusting or not fresh at all. Fitntasty juices were different! They are organic and cold pressed! They are so fresh you can literally smell all the different ingredients. I liked all the juices but I am a fan of the green one! I felt more alive than ever. And although I haven’t eaten anything on that day I had the power for a long walk in the sun.

I can really recommend to do a detox day once a week. I cannot deny that I missed my daily chocolate but it was a great experience and I would do it anytime again <3

Listed below are the juices I drank. Number 2 was my fav. Maybe I am the green warrior type :)

1 – Ginger, lemon, water
2 – Apple, pear, spinach, cucumber, spirulina
At lunch – A vegetable soup made by my mum
3 – Carrot, apple, kiwi
4 – Beet root, apple, carrot, parsley, lemon
5 – Pear, lettuce, celery, cucumber, parsley, lemon

Healthy Ferrero Rocher Chocolate Balls

ball1

Ingredients:

1/2 Cup hazelnuts (chopped)

1/2 cup coconut flour

3 tbsp cacao powder

2  tbsp unsweetened applesauce

2 tbsp agave syrup

1/4 coconut oil (melted)

1/4 Cup almond milk

vanilla extract (I like to add a lot so I put in 1 big tbsp)

1 Cup vegan dark Chocolate

Method:

Roast the hazelnuts in a pan with a lil bit of vanilla extract for about 5 minutes. (the smell at this moment is AAAHHHH-MAZING!) Don’t add any oil since the nuts already contain natural oil. After roasting crush the hazelnuts or slice them really finely with a knife. In a bowl place the sliced hazelnuts. Let them wait there until the balls are ready.

While the hazelnuts are cooling, mix together all the ingredients mentioned below. I started with the liquid ones and then added the dry ones.

Depending on the consistency of the mass, either try to form balls right away placing a whole nut in the middle of the ball or if too sticky place in the freezer for about 10 minutes and then try the procedure. If too dry add more milk, if too liquid add more flour.

After rolling the balls put them in the freezer.

While freezing them, melt the chocolate in a water bath.

Put the balls out and dip them first in the melted chocolate and afterwards in the hazelnuts until the whole ball is covered.

Put all the balls on a plate and then back in the freezer.

After approx. 20 minutes put them out and ENJOY!

Easy Vegan Apple Cake

pie3

120g Vollkornmehl/1 Cup Wholegrain flour

1 zermatschte reife Banane/ 1 mashed ripe banana

7g Backpulver/ 1 tbsp baking powder

80ml Mandel Milch/ 1/3 cup almond milk

200g Äpfel/apple (4 kleine Äpfel/4 small apples)

viel Zimt/ cinnamon

10ml Ahornsirup/1 tbsp maple syrup or agave syrup

2 EL kokosnussöl/ 2 Tbsp coconut oil

Stevia oder Süßungsmittel nach Bedarf/stevia or any other sweetener

8 Himbeeren / 8 raspberries

Mix flour, milk, baking powder, banana, oil, syrup, and the sweetner of your choice. You should try the dough if it’s sweet enough! Grate 2 of the 4 apples into the dough and add lots of cinnamon. Now try the dough again! ADD MORE MILK/ OR WATER IF DOUGH IS TOO STICKY!
Put half of it into a baking dish and then place the raspberries on top. Cover with the second half of the dough. Then cut the remaining two apples into pieces and place them on top. Now you add again some cinnamon and the maple syrup. Just a little bit for the taste.
Put it into the oven for about 30 minutes on 350F. Enjoy!

Mehl, Mandelmilch, Backpulver, Sirup, Öl, und je nach Bedarf Stevia vermischen. Schmeckt den Teig ruhig ab, damit ihr merkt ob es süß genug ist!
Dann reibt ihr 2 von den 4 Äpfeln in den Teig, ich hab das mit einer ganz normalen Reibe gemacht und den Apfel auch nicht geschält. Dann gebt ihr noch eine schöne Ladung Zimt dazu und probiert am besten nochmal eine Messerspitze, ob es euch süß genug ist. FALLS DER TEIG ZU TROCKEN IST GEBT MEHR MILCH ODER WASSER DAZU!
Gebt die Hälfte in eine Backform, ich hab wie Melina auch eine Kastenform genommen.Dann platziert ihr die Himbeeren auf den Teig und gebt dann die restliche Teighälfte darüber. Schön zudecken. Dann schneidet ihr die restlichen Äpfel in Scheiben und verteilt sie auf dem Kuchen. Nochmal etwas Zimt und zum Schluss einen Schuss Ahornsirup oder Agavensirup über den Kuchen gießen.
Dann geht der Kuchen in den Ofen, für 30 Minuten bei 180°C
