Saturday chocolate banana pancakes and the week that passed

Saturday morning,  sunshine through my window, chocolate banana pancakes, coffee in front of me and workout plans on my mind. This is how my weekend started. Pancakes and chocolate, what is not to like? I have the benefit of being home alone this weekend as […]

Gluten Free Afternoon Cupcakes

Gluten Free Afternoon Cupcakes

I have been missing in action: Sorry. I want to make up for it by presenting you with inspiration for cupcakes. Sometimes being absent or MIA just happens. Motivation drops, life gets busy, you have to move apartments and renovate, training, family, and friends take priority, but… […]

Healthier Oatmeal Cookies

Healthier Oatmeal Cookies

Afternoon tea (read: I drink coffee but it is called tea) is the best. On rainy days I think it is awesome coming home and cuddling up on the couch with some home baked whatever (in this case cookies), and a cup of deliciousness from Enghave Kaffe, which is by far the best coffee in Copenhagen. This is what I did yesterday, and the cookies I made was made with ingredients I had laying around already. I had one of those days where I did not want to leave the apartment after coming home.

The Goodies:

  • 1 medium banana (130gr)
  • 1 dl almonds
  • 1 dl oats (choose gluten-free if you want that)
  • 1 dl coconut flour (you could use another dl of oats)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp honey (optional)
  • 30gr melted butter
  • 50gr 80% dark chocolate (choose sugar-free if you want no added sugar in this)

The How:

  1. Turn your oven onto 170°C over and under heat
  2. Melt the butter over low heat
  3. While the butter is melting throw almonds, oats, coconut flour, the egg, honey and the banana in a blender
  4. Add the melted butter and blend the mixture all together
  5. Chop the chocolate and add to the batter
  6. Place a baking sheet on the baking pan and create your cookies at the size you desire – I made 6 decent size cookies from this recipe
  7. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until they have a slightly golden look to them
  8. Make yourself a good cup of coffee, put on Game of Thrones, and eat some cookies
Get in my belly!

I had prepared these for when Nicolai returned from training, and they were a hit. Afternoon spoiling at it’s best! Maybe you should make these as your next treat-yourself thing? Let me know how you get on. I hope everyone has a wonderful day.
