banana bake.

So, even though I’m leaving my apartment here for the summer and alas, can’t check all my plants onto the plane headed home, I couldn’t stop myself from picking up some new pretties while at Lowe’s today. 

Succulents and cacti are just too bee-yoo-tiful to pass up! Two of these guys I’ve had for a few years, so I replanted them next to some colorful cacti to spruce things up. Voila, a mini succulent garden! I’m pretty bummed I can’t take these home to Minnesota in a week. 

I was also pretty bummed after dinner tonight. Mostly I felt like this:

Which means “where’s the dessert?!” I’ve been bored with my current baked goodies so I decided to bake something new (again). This time though I adjusted the recipe to make two servings, instead of like, y’know, fifteen. The result? 

A yummy banana walnut bake! I adapted the recipe from here and I ended up making two servings instead of one! Here are my changes:

Ingredients (for TWO servings):
  • 1/2 sliced banana
  • 1/4 cup raw oatmeal
  • 1/4 cup pancake mix
  • 1/4 chopped walnuts
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon 
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tbsp. almond butter
  • 1/3 cup So Delicious coconut milk
  • 1 chia “egg” (1 tbsp chia seeds + 2 tbsp water, mixed separately and set aside for 10 minutes)
I mixed everything together, poured into a small Pyrex and baked at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. 

Turned out perfectly gooey as I like it. Topped with a little vanilla ice cream (and whipped cream, mmhm) and a drizzle of agave. Hello, yummy. My tummy is very very satisfied. :)

    Mmm, this looks delicious! I hated my dinner tonight, too – I would have enjoyed this MUCH more.
