Whole Wheat Blueberry Yogurt Quinoa Muffin (Eggless)

Yesterday afternoon I kinda miss my oven. Lately, I'm very excited to make a healthy breakfast. So I just eat my overnight oatmeal with various toppings. But, I really miss to use my oven and make some bakedgoods. I wanna make something different which is healthy, vegan and I can keep it in the freezer for emergency breakfast. I remember one of my friends on IG once said that quinoa's also delicious in Muffin. OK! I decided to make some vegan quinoa muffins. I looked into the refrigerator and food storage cabinet. "Argh~ I run out of soy milk" ... Sadly, I couldn't make it vegan. =( The only dairy that I found in my refrigerator's a bluberry yogurt. So I decided to use it and make some "Eggless Whole Wheat Blueberry Yogurt Quinoa Muffin" (WOAH~ The tittle is too long, isn't it? hahaha...) Fortunately it turned out soo good. I didn't put any sweetener on my muffin. Because I thought the applesauce itself is sweet enough. 

Eggless Blueberry Yogurt Quinoa Muffin (Whole Wheat)
serves : 4 

1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup blueberry yogurt
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup quick cooking oat
3/4 cup cooked quinoa
1/2 cup wholemeal flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
a little bit vanilla
Optional : sugar or maple syrup to make it sweeter.

1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees celcius. Butter 4 ramekins and set aside.
2. In a large bowl whisk together applesauce, yogurt, oil, and vanilla. Sprinkle the quick cooking oat on top  
    and set aside. 
3. In another bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar (If using) , and quinoa. 
    Add this mixture to the wet ingredients and gently mix until just combined.
4. Fill each ramekin three quarters full. Sprinkle the top with more quick cooking oats (or raw sugar). Bake 
    for approximately 25 minutes until the muffin starts to brown. Cool for 5 minutes in the pan and turn on to 
    wire racks to cool completely.

Suggestion : Eat warm, slathered with good butter, fruit jam, or peanut butter. Or freeze for breakfast. ENJOY~! ^^

*Ps : Sorry, my english isn't good enough. LOL

Low- Fat Vegan Banana Bread

My second banana bread... I thought it's better than the first one.. I adapted this recipe from Veganomicon , but i don't have the molasses and sucanat sugar, so I replace it with Maple and brown sugar. It still turns out good and not too sweet. If you prefer to make it sweeter then maybe you can put more sugar. Give it a try... ^^ 

Low-Fat Banana Bread (Vegan)
Makes one loaf about 12 slices

2 large or 3 small very ripe bananas
1/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup canola oil
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup white whole wheat flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan.
2. In a large mixing bowl, mash the bananas really well. Add the sugar, applesauce, oil, and maple, and 
    whisk briskly to incorporate.
3. Sift in the flour, baking soda, spices, and salt. Use a wooden spoon to mix until the wet and dry 
    ingredients are just combined. If you're using chocolate chips or nuts, fold them in here.
4. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan and bake for 45 to 50 minutes (it took 50 for me). The top should 
    be lightly browned and a knife inserted through the center should come out clean.
5. Remove from the oven and let cool!
6. Slice it and enjoy with tea or coffee (maybe) ^^

Single Serving Vegan Mac and Cheese (You'll love it!)

I adapted this Vegan Mac and Cheese form Chef Chloe lovely recipe. This's my first time and it turns out so good. My sister also like it so much (She asked me to make it again for her, Yey!!). Actually I bought Chloe's Kitchen cooking book and got the recipe from there (Best-Ever Baked Macaroni and Cheese). Have you bought it yet? If you haven't, you probably need to get it now.. hehehe..
Ups, I almost forget to tell you, this is a single-serving size Mac and Cheese.. Hope you like it! =)

Vegan Mac & Cheese

75 gr elbow macaroni
10 gr vegan margarine
7 gr all purpose flour
125 ml soy milk (or your choice of non-dairy milk)
10 gr nutritional yeast
1 tsp tomato paste
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp maple syrup

1. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil and cook the macaroni according to package directions.
    Drain and return to pot.
2. In a sauce pan, make a roux or paste by whisking the margarine and flour over medium heat for 3 minutes.
3. Add non-dairy milk, nutritional yeast, tomato paste, salt, and garlic powder to the sauce pan and bring to  
    a boil. Whisking frequently. Reduce heat to low and let simmer until the sauce thickens.
4. Adjust seasoning to taste and stir in lemon juice and agave.
5. Toss the macaroni with the sauce and serve immediately.

* If you prefer to bake your mac and cheese then preheat your oven to 180 degrees celcius before you start making the mac and cheese. Place your mac and cheese into a small baking dish. Next, sprinkle a tbsp of bread crumbs in the top of your Mac and Cheese. Finally put it in the oven for about 30 minutes. And ENJOY!!! ^^

Below is the recipe.. ^^ enjoyy~ =D


1 cup dates
1 cup walnuts

2.     Add the cacao and salt. Pulse to combine.
