    Healthy Banana Bread

    You know I love my coffee. Maybe too much. 🙂 And you can’t drink a cup of coffee without having some treat to go with it. And for me, a sweet but healthy bread or a simple pound cake will do. For this recipe, I made some tweaks to make it healthier than other banana bread recipes.

Ingredients: 3 very ripe bananas 2 eggs, at room temperature 200 g of whole-wheat flour 2 tablespoons of natural unsweetened yogurt 1 tablespoon of coconut oil, melted 1/2 a teaspoon of…

    Lavender Infused Sugar

    Making infused sugars is one of my favorite things to do lately. And Lavender Infused Sugar is my favorite of all. We normally don’t eat white sugar, but you can’t really do these things with brown sugar because you can’t see the flowers or the citrus peel that you infuse that sugar with. It just looks better with white sugar, even if you don’t eat it. I love the fact that you have so many options to make infused sugar: with lavender citrus peel cinnamon vanilla lilac violet flower etc. There are so many great, delicious and good looking options to make this. They are really great as a gift as…
