Caramelized banana chaga bread

Caramelized banana chaga bread is the next level. Its a superfood loaded loaf with all the taste and that something extra. There are so many benefits to Chaga powder and this mushroom is quite difficult to add into food, but in the super loaded loaf it works wonders and adds onto the deep and caramelized flavors of the banana.

Blueberry lemon poppyseed cake

Blueberry lemon poppyseed cake is such an easy and yummy cake to bake. It's ready n no time and the amazing flavors of lemon and blueberry is so intoxicating. The taste is even better with the hints of lemon zest and, bursts of blueberry and hints of poppy seeds. One of my very favorite summer cake loaves this year and I think I might be addicted to this combo from now on.

Mesquite cashew caramel blondies

Mesquite cashew caramel blondies are close to best blondies I have ever had. I have recently started to use Mesquite powder and I have to say I absolutely love the taste this superfood adds to a smoothie or cakes. With these blondies, it adds that something special.

Blood orange waffles

Blood orange waffles couldn't come at a better time. It's spring pretty soon and oh my goodness I cannot wait. It's been a pretty tough two weeks since my son's second birthday. The notorious flue has gotten it grips on me. Hopefully it soon will pass, but for now, a crunchy stack of gluten-free waffles with these tangy blood oranges will suffice! I topped these vegan waffles with homemade coconut yogurt, bananas, coconut nectar and salted pistachio's.

Super soft pretzel bagels

Soft pretzel bagels are just what I need today. It's been a pretty long winter and since the festive season, I have been thinking of these gorgeous beauties that I ate almost every day with my son at the markets. Bread has become such comfort and solace for me and nothing beats a freshly baked pretzel.

Vegetable packed tomato basil soup

Vegetable packed tomato basil soup is a super quick way of getting in all your vegetables in one nutritious bowl. This weekend was excruciating cold like can't feel my toes kind of cold and flu seeping through your cold kind of cold. My husband was away for work this past weekend and our fireplace was on the frits, I was not a happy mama this weekend. Apart from the cold, I had a pretty eventful weekend avec my little man. It's hard keeping these little ones busy in this cold, I tell you! I'm just thinking I am so glad we left Norway before it got really cold!

Caramel soaked pumpkin fritters

Caramel soaked pumpkin fritters are just amazing as they sound and look. I wanted to recreate my utmost favorite side dish that tastes like dessert. These fritters are life changing and you'll want to make them for every Sunday lunch from now on. I thought they might be quite fitting for the Christmas day, just because absolutely spoiling yourself is what it's all about!

Chai pumpkin churros

Chai pumpkin churros are essential when the festive season is here. I know churros more as "dough fills" from my childhood. They are a whole other post by themselves and I'm sure going to get up all nostalgic about them, but for now churros, my friends. Not only do these totally vegan churros taste super delish, coated in sugar and dipped in chocolate, but these churros have two special ingredients. Homemade chai spice and sweet mashed pumpkin. Yes, these are super special churros for a super special time of the year!

Vegan Hertzoggie tart

Vegan Hertzoggie tart has been on my mind for ages. Hertzoggies is one of my absolute favorite South African desserts ever. They usually come in a small cookie form and is enjoyed over tea and chats late afternoon. I certainly love this tart almost as much as the actual cookies. I have made a smaller cookie version too that I will share with you very soon, but for now this delish tart will take over your taste buds.
