Try this with a bit of milk. I used cashew nut milk. Perfect!

Quinoa salad: Leftover red onions, leftover red and white quinoa, some feta cheese, chopped flat-leaf parsley and olive oil. And a few chili marinated olives on top. Yum!

And a smoothie for dessert. 1 banana, a handful cashew nut pulp, frozen raspberries, 1 tps maca powder*, 1 tsp lecithin, 1 tbsp hemp protein, cashew nut milk, water.

* If you're in Norway, it's not legal to import maca from outside the EU, so if you want to follow the rules, order from e.g. Goji King. That said, I have ordered from iherb, and got my maca. However, you do risk it being returned to sender.

Chocolate smoothie for breakfast

4-5 unsulphured dried apricots, soaked overnight
A handful raw cashews, soaked overnight
1 very ripe banana, preferably frozen in pieces
1,5 tbsp hemp protein powder
2 tbsp raw cacao powder
A splash agave nectar to taste
2,5 dl oat milk (I use calcium-enriched Oatly or home made)

Place all ingredients in blender, blend until smooth and enjoy!

If you don't have frozen bananas, add a few icecubes. I definitely prefer this smoothie cold. And add superfood powders as desired. Maca, camu camu, mesquite, lecithin powder all work well.

If you're a first time iherb shopper, feel free to use my referral code ISE306 to receive $5 off your first order.

Banana muffins

These were made today for our girl's packed afternoon meal for daycare. She's a bit of a fussy eater and so I try to be creative. These have already proved popular. They can easily be made gluten free by using gluten free oats, and can also be made without added sugar - the palm sugar isn't strictly necessary, but it tastes nice.


A handful almonds
A handful sunflower kernels
2 handfuls rolled oats
1 dl coconut flour
1 tsp baking powder
Cocoa powder to taste
1 tbsp palm sugar
2 eggs
2 very ripe bananas
1,5 dl vanilla quark (I suppose regular quark, cottage cheese or fromage frais could be used instead, with a bit of vanilla essence)

Heat oven to 175 C. Place almonds, sunflower kernels and one handful of the rolled oats in a food processor and grind to flour. Place in a bowl along with the other dry ingredients. Mash the bananas with a fork and add to the dry mixture along with the eggs. Stir together, then add the quark and give it another stir. Distribute in muffin cases and bake for approx. 18 minutes. This recipe made 10 muffins.
