Single-Serving Breakfast Pancakes With Banana Sauce (Vegan)

What did you have for breakfast this morning?
I had this hearty and healthy vegan pancakes.. ^^
I adapted the recipe from ohsheglows blog. She has so many fabulous recipe.  yey~
Below I put mine recipe. I can't find a spelt flour here in my city so I replace it with whole wheat flour and oat flour.

Whole wheat Single-Serving Vegan Pancakes
Makes 4 pancakes.

1/4 cup white whole wheat flour
1/4 cup oat flour
a pinch of salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup water (or non-dairy milk of your choice)

1. Mix all dry ingredients together.
2. Add the water (or milk) to the dry ingredients and stir well.
3. Spray a skillet with non stick oil and spoon the batter onto the skillet on med-low temperature.
4. Flip pancakes when bubbles pop and cook other side.

For the Banana Sauce
1/2 banana (not frozen) : Mash up
1 tbsp vegan margarine (melted)
1/2 tbsp pure maple syrup

* Mix all ingredients together then pour it in the top of pancakes..

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!!! ^^
