2 Ingredient Banana Pancake (Gluten, Paleo & Dairy Friendly)

This Banana Pancake recipe isn’t exactly a pancake, but it’s shaped like a pancake, eaten like a pancake, just sans the flour in recipe. Yes you heard me. Flourless pancake, just banana and eggs, and taste just as delicious. Whoever created this recipe is a genius.

Now don’t you agree everyone could use less flour in their food intake. Even though I am  intolerant to wheat, I still substitute wheat with other grain flours like rice, buckwheat, millet and sorghum. Whole-kernel grains does conceal an array of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and fiber. But when machines pulverize kernels into flour, even whole-grain flour, what’s left behind is a starchy powder capable of wreaking havoc on the body.  Continue Reading →

Baileys Banana Chocolate Ice Cream

Baileys Banana Chocolate Ice Cream. This is the world’s easiest ice cream. It takes literally 5 minutes to put together, only 4 ingredients and the best – without an ice cream maker! *happy dance*

Using good quality chocolate makes a big difference in the flavour, use either chocolate bar like Lindt or couverture chocolate such as Callebaut. The banana gives the ice cream a smooth, creamy consistency and provides the sweetness, so use a nice, ripe one. The ice cream keeps for weeks in the freezer with perfect smooth consistency.

Last month, I was fortunate to be asked to assist in the Journey to Inner Food Workshop, conducted by Daniw Arrazola (the co-founder of Bahay Kalipay – a healing & detox retreat center in Pahlawan, Philippines). From buying ingredients to sourcing for kitchen equipments, it has been an enriching journey. Never have I shopped for almost RM2,000 worth of fresh produce and ingredients!

With the initial thought that it’s a food raw preparation workshop, I was in for a surprise. Before you give me the “sour face”, give yourself the benefit of a doubt and read on..

Millet Porridge

It’s been a while since I had millets and I was missing their nutty flavour. Millet is commonly used as breakfast cereal / breakfast porridge in Himalayas and certain parts of China. Here I use millet to replace my Banana Oatmeal. Although oats have been widely publicized for their heart-protective properties, millet is a grain that should be included on your list of heart-healthy choices because it is highly nutritious and has a good source of minerals.

I remember in the schooling days my mama would force us to eat tasteless bland Quacker oats. Yuck, I would try to avoid it at in anyway. It was only recently I learned this new tricks/recipes from Ashley’s Edible Perspective blog that I am now in love with my oatmeal! I’ve never seen a girl so crazy about oats like Ashley. The trick is to top with loads fruits/nuts/seeds/peanut butter/fruit preserve/jam.  Continue Reading →
