Easy, healthy banana chia seed pancakes

Anyone else go through loads of bananas?!  I buy a bunch a week and wait patiently until they’re spotty enough to do stuff with – banana bread, frozen for smoothies and nice cream, and of course – pancakes. You can make pancakes as “bad” or as “good” for you as you like.  These happen to…

Tofu “eggs” benedict

I think I’ve probably only ever had two or three eggs benedict meals ever before going vegan.  There was always the worry that when you order eggs at a café or restaurant they’re going to be too snotty and gross (EW), and that had forever put me off ordering them.  Plus being vegan, it’s now…

Smoothie bowls

  Summer is pretty much here (in the Northern Hemisphere in any case) so it’s time to use spotty bananas for smoothie bowls rather than banana bread. You know how easy it is to make smoothie bowls?  SUPER easy. The best thing about smoothie bowls is you can put in it whatever you want.  See…
