Chocolate Banana “Ice cream”

October 2009 and accident 009

To make this simple ice-cream, all you need is a little sweetener, water,  cocoa (1/4- 1/2 c.) and four frozen bananas. Add the frozen bananas in chunks, to your ice-cream maker or food processor and then add cocoa and sweetener (preferably liquid) to taste.  Then add water until it reaches the right consistency. Serves 2-4. YUM!

Yummy, Easy Creations

Chocolate Banana Oatmeal   

Melt-in-your-mouth Peanut butter cookies

I’ve been meaning to post about these two for quite a while. Unfortunately, I don’t remember exactly how I did each of them (a far as having an exact recipe but I can give you an idea of how to do it since both of them were so delicious and easy. Luckily, I have gotten better at writing down what I do, so hopefully most recipes you see on here will have a “real recipe”. ;)


For the chocolate banana oatmeal:

Take one frozen banana or fresh and mash it (reserving a few slices for the top). Add 1/3-1/2 c. dry oatmeal and water. Add in some cocoa powder (I'm guessing about 2-4 T.) and sweetener (I used agave- probably a couple of T.)


For the Melt-in-your-mouth peanut butter cookies:

I used absolutely no grains, butter, refined sugar, milk products, gluten, etc! I used peanut flour and agave. I purchase my peanut flour through Emergency Essentials. You can find them online. Anyway, I mixed some peanut butter powder (peanut flour) and agave together with an egg and or baking powder ? until it looked and tasted to be peanut-buttery  and sweet but not overpoweringly peanut buttery or too sweet. I then placed spoonfuls in the oven I think for around 15 mins. I will try and make these sometime soon again and update you on what I did. :) They were so good and melted perfectly in your mouth.
