Cocoa Banana Oat Bread

I simply call this recipe "Banana Oat Bread on steroids" - slightly modified recipe of my Banana Oat Bread, but equally delicious and satisfying. The difference is obviously the added cocoa powder and plain white flour instead of whole wheat flour.

Homemade Applesauce

This post will be very short, I promise...I think you do not even need a recipe to make applesauce at home, but just in case, you can find my version below. I remember while living in Denmark, it was so easy to find delicious ready-made unsweetened applesauce, however, it is not the case here in… Continue reading Homemade Applesauce
