Healthy Chia Banana Bars

Healthy Chia Banana Bars 3

My favorite breakfast these days: quick, easy, tasty, filling and super-healthy. All of the ingredients are inexpensive and easy to find here in Mexico. Packed with whole grains and seeds, these squares are wheat-free, gluten-free (if made with gluten-free oats), dairy-free, egg-free, low in sugar, and high in fiber. Did I mention they're delicious?

In our house, we eat these so often, we call them Chia Squares. But I thought Chia Banana Bars was more descriptive. What do you think?

I Love Bananas


I love bananas. (I love them so much that I'm working on a related project...) Here are some delicious healthy banana recipes I'm looking forward to trying:

Quinoa And Banana Pudding Recipe

This healthy not-too-sweet pudding is a great alternative to rice pudding.

Banana Bread Loaf
A high-protein gluten-free almondy banana bread.

Grilled bananas with toasted almonds
A delicately spiced sweet Indian dish.

Banana-Mango Ketchup

Spicy Banana Ketchup
Banana ketchup is a favourite condiment in the Philippines. These recipes both sound amazing.

Vegan Banana Nut Ice Cream Recipe

Rich and wonderful.

Carmalized Banana With Rum Sauce Recipe
This looks way too good ;-)

Let me know what some of your favourite healthy banana recipes are!

Banana Booty Bars

These are my new favorite bars!

Recipe: Banana Booty Bars

The Booty: Naturally sweet, chewy, packed with oats, fruit, fiber, a
hint of spice, dark chocolate and a walnut crunch. These vegan treats
are quick and easy to make and are great for people on special diets -
great for your booty too ;-)

I initially made these as cookies. The excellent flavour and wholesome ingredients were all there, but the cookie format wasn't the greatest (+ more time consuming!)... After deciding on the bar format (and tweaking the ingredients) everything came together deliciously. These are super for a quick breakfast or snack + a great way to use up those over-ripe bananas!

Marvelous Monkey Muffins

Make some Marvelous Monkey Muffins - mmm!

Packed with sweet ripe bananas, flax seeds, oats, toasted pepitas...
these super muffins are good for you and your monkey!

Here's the recipe:

Ooo-oo-oo ee-EE!

Chocolate Fractal Banana Bread

Fractalize your banana bread: Chocolate Fractal Banana Bread

This summer, I concocted yet another version of the oh-so-versitile classic banana bread. This one is particularly special due to it's amazing chocolaty flavour, as well as its striking good looks - and it's healthy too!

This banana bread deserved a special name, and after some deliberation with my partner (Fortune Fudge Swirl Banana Bread? Magic Marble Chocolate Banana Bread?) we came up with Chocolate Mandelbrot Banana Bread. This was a name surely worthy of this gorgeous fractaly loaf!

Upon further research, I learned that there is already a Mandelbrot Bread in existence. This other Mandelbrot bread is an "almond bread", and is more like the Italian twice-baked biscotti (actually called Cantuccini in native Tuscany/Italy). There is even a recipe for Chocolate-filled mandelbrot - which may also have a chocolaty Mandelbrot set running through it's center.

After all that, here's the official recipe for my latest concoction:
Chocolate Fractal Banana Bread.

Far out!
