Banana Nut Bread Deliciousness

I have lost and found this recipe too many times to mention, and so finally, I'm pasting both the link to the recipe and the recipe itself to my blog. It's so simple and easy that you really can't NOT make it, and it's VEGAN to boot!

What you need:
3 ripe bananas, mashed
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped

What you do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Grease a loaf pan.
Mix the mashed bananas and oil in a large bowl.
Stir in the flour, vegan sugar, salt, and baking soda.
Mix in the nuts.
Pour the well-blended batter into the greased pan, top with nuts (if desired), and bake for 45 minutes-1 hour.

Remove, let cool, slice, and serve.

Spicy Cauliflower Deliciousness

This is not my recipe....seriously, it's not. One of my friends found it here: Then she shared it with me at a holiday gathering recently.

Holy Cauliflower, Batman! Bang! Zap! Pow! Amazingness!

  • 1 head cauliflower
  • For the batter:
  • Dash of Frank’s Original Hot Sauce, or whatever kind you like
  • ½ c. white rice flour
  • ½ c. water
  • Pinch salt

  • For the Buffalo sauce:
  • ¼ c. Frank’s Hot Sauce
  • ¼ c. oil, canola oil works best
  • Pinch salt
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Mix together the batter ingredients in a small bowl. Dip the cauliflower in the batter until coated evenly then place on greased baking sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes or until the batter hardens.
  2. Mix together sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Once the cauliflower are done baking, brush them with the hot sauce mixture and bake again for a few more minutes, until cauliflower is crispy.
  3. Remove from oven. You may want to add a bit more buffalo sauce to taste.
  4. Enjoy!
