Banana Bread Donuts

You’ll probably want to sit down with the whole batch. 🤤🍩🍌

Processed with VSCO with ke1 preset
Woke up with the rain at 5am and the fact that Aero needed to climb over our faces to get to the window. He’s not quite sure what’s going on outside but he sure is cozy by the window. 🦇🌧

In other news, 10 days into the new year and my Five Minute Journal is finally here! Thank you Rachel for the recommendation and I loved beginning my morning with a five minute session. I actually write in this right after our devotional and breakfast in the morning. Really cannot function with breakfast first. 👩🏻‍🍳✨🍴

* 1 1/4 cup Kodiak Cakes buttermilk mix
* 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
* 1/2 cup mashed bananas
* 2 tablespoons vegan butter (melted)
* 1/4 cup Ripple unsweetened (give or take depending on consistency)

The perfect potato crusted quiche

This egg white quiche with a yukon potato crust was almost too pretty to eat… almost. 😉🥔🍳

24A8A3CD-59B4-4F35-8314-BDF220636CBC.jpg
I can proudly say that my first attempt at a quiche was a success! I’ve always been intimidated by making crusts, that’s why you’ve yet to see a pie of any sort here (even though I’ve been wanting to make a pot pie 😬). To avoid traditional crust I used thinly sliced yukon potatoes. After baking the potatoes were crisp to perfection! This quiche is filled with veggies, @chinovalleyranchers egg whites, almond cream cheese, and uncured turkey bacon. 👩🏻‍🍳✨🥘

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium yukon gold potatoes, cut into thin slices
  • 2 slices uncured turkey bacon, diced into bite size pieces
  • 2 cups raw broccoli
  • 1 cup diced cucumber
  • 1/2 cup raw yellow onion
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1/4 cup Ripple unsweetened original (or another type of milk)
  • 2 tablespoons almond cream cheese (or regular cream cheese if not dairy free)
  • 6 egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • ground pepper to taste

Instructions:

  • Preheat over to 375 degrees F.
  • Spray a 9 inch pie pan with nonstick cooking spray. Add thin potato slices all around the base and sides. Spray the potatoes with additional cooking spray and bake for 20 minutes.
  • While the potato crust is baking, cook the turkey bacon, and transfer to a separate plate. Sauté the onions, broccoli, and cucumber in the same pan. Once the onions are golden brown, add spinach and cook until wilted. Mix in almond cream cheese, cooked/diced turkey bacon, and combine completely.
  • In a medium bowl whisk together egg whites, spices, and Ripple. Add veggie mixture over the potato crust, spreading evenly throughout the pan. Then add egg mixture over the top.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the top become golden brown.
  • Remove from heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes before cutting into 6-8 slices. Top with hot sauce and enjoy!

Hope you all have a lovely Thursday! I’m currently bundled up in a blanket with Aero because it’s finally cold here in LA. Cheers~😅❄️☕️

Cranberry Chia Seed Jam

Jumping for joy because cranberry season is here and there’s no stopping me now! 😍🍂🍕

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset
Thanksgiving themed breakfast pizza was a huge hit. Fresh, homemade cranberry chia seed jam (made this right when we got home last night), @lifewaykefir natural Farmer Cheese (always my substitute for ricotta cheese), and uncured turkey bacon. Could always use leftovers from Thanksgiving. 😉🦃🍴

Cranberry Chia Seed Jam:

  • 1 bag fresh cranberries
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds

Directions:

  • Combine all ingredients in a medium size pot, cook on medium-high heat until the cranberries begin to boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and mash with a potato masher or fork. Continue to simmer for about 15 minutes, mashing every few minutes.
  • Jar ingredients and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, top on pizza, toast, oatmeal, and more. Enjoy! 👩🏻‍🍳✨👋🏻
