Brandnew addiction: Bananabread Muffins. They happened last week for the first time when I slowly started eating again after a 7-day-detox program. Since then, they are on repeat in my kitchen – perfect breakfast, easy to take away and also a wonderful dessert. Right now, I have one batch in the oven for grandmas birthday… The smell of vanilla is simply fantastic.
During and after a period of fasting I love to experiment with new combinations even more. Like this break causes high inspiration and enthusiasm to try new things. This time I was obsessed with bananabread. Without apparent reason I just had bananabread on my mind all day long. So when I started consuming solid food again (first whole fruit, then whole vegetables – both raw – and then… on day 3 after breaking the fast this jewel) I gave it a try. You should know, this the very first bananabread I ever did and there were two main rules for me: I wanted it to be vegan and without any added sugar. I did not expect this first version to work perfectly – but it was just that: perfect. The consistency of this bananabread is the optimal compromise of juicy but solid. Sweetness from the banana, sour notes and juice from the apple plus crunchy nuts rounded off by warm flavors of vanilla and cinnamon. The magic ingredient here is the chia seeds – brilliant egg replacer. Try it for yourself, this is a wonderful treat and preparation of the dough only takes 5 minutes.
AND: vegan and without added sugars, as promised – mission completed.
