Foodie Fridays: B’s 2 Ingredient Granola-Banana Cookies

Hello 🙂  There are so many 2 ingredient recipes floating around that make you think how easy it can be to whip something up!  I came across this website a few days ago and wanted to try somethings out. The ice-cream bread looks like a fantastic idea, I will definitely try it out in B’s Kitchen 🙂

Today, I wanted a healthy but easy snack (I’m recovering from a flu) boo-hoo! Hate having a flu!  Yes, I’m all rhyming today 🙂

I used 1 banana and about 3/4 cup of granola.  EASY & VEGETARIAN!

Image

I used this granola as it had bits of chocolate.  I love the combination of chocolate and banana! 🙂

I mixed the banana and granola in a bowl.  Mashing up the banana is key!  Then mixing it all in is easy (I use disposable gloves to do this as I have long nails and it’s kind of gross otherwise!)

Image

I then made them into tiny cookie sizes.  I didn’t flatten them out much as I prefer it to be soft inside.

Image

I funnily enough forgot to take the end result.  It was hot out of the oven – the smell of banana filled the kitchen and I starting eating.. and eating.. Gave the husband his share.. and then I remembered… “MY BLOG…”

The tiny remain before I ate my last bite! 🙂 YUMMY.

B’s Easy 3 ingredient Ice-cream : Banana, Nutella & Peanut Butter

The title gives away the whole post 😉  I’ve made Frozen Banana Ice-cream before (just blend the frozen banana – I’ve blogged about it here).  It’s a simple vegetarian ice-cream with added flavours.  Delectable. Today I wanted a tiny bit of Nutella and Peanut Butter in it… I got started on whipping this up! 😉

Got my ingredients ready:

ImagePut it in the food processor with a bit of milk and the additional flavourings:

The end product – creamy yummy… delish… HEALTHY… Well relatively healthy, much better than an ice-cream scoop!  So here it is… The end product:

B’s Eggless Oven Pancake Topped With Frozen Banana (ice-cream)

Me again 🙂  Today I thought I’ll blog again – another healthy recipe to keep the vegetarians going!  This oven pancake is eggless and puffs up in the oven – thus there’s no flipping required!  Easy treat with minimal ingredients.  Recently over my eggless home-made scones, a friend and I were having a conversation about eggless baking and she gave me a tip about substituting buttermilk for milk in the recipe and omitting eggs completely.  I had  to give it a go! 

I lined a pyrex dish with baking paper.  This allowed me to omit buttering the dish.  You can slightly butter the paper though.

ImageLooks kind of iffy, but it comes out easy don’t worry!  

The final result (I love this photo- it’s been edited using Snapseed):

ImageThis is a great low-fat treat.  There is NO SUGAR (except for the chocolate sprinkles on top which is minimal if you ask me). Also – the ice-cream is frozen banana which I blended.  That’s it!  Easy!  B’s food is usually quite easy! 

If you haven’t frozen banana before, here are the steps:

  • Peel the banana that is slightly browning
  • Cut it in small pieces
  • Freeze in ziplock
  • Can be frozen till 6 months (I’ve read online, but to be safer I’d say 3 months as I’m not a huge fan of freezing food to begin with)

B’s Eggless Oven Pancake Topped with Frozen Banana (ice-cream)

Bakes: One pancake for 2 people

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk + 1/2 tbsp vinegar (for the buttermilk)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Vanilla essence to taste
  • A bit of butter to butter the tray (can omit this if using baking paper)
  • Frozen Banana
  • Chocolate Sprinkles (optional)

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 210 C.
  2. Pour a bit less than 1/2 cup of milk in a measuring cup.  Add 1/2 tbsp of vinegar to it and let it sit for 5 minutes.  This becomes your buttermilk.
  3. Pout milk in a bowl and mix in the flour and salt with a whisk.  Add vanilla essence. 
  4. Don’t overmix as it will lose its fluffiness as a pancake. (Just FYI)
  5. Pour in a pyrex dish lined with baking paper.
  6. Bake for about 30 minutes till it’s golden.
  7. Blend the banana pieces with a tiny bit of milk. 
  8. Top the pancake with the ice-cream and serve!

Enjoy a healthy dessert to beat the summer in London!
