We cooked from Deliciously Ella Every Day, one of our favorite cookbooks that we’ve gone back to countless times. Veronica prepared Banana Breakfast Bars (p. 44) and Warming Turmeric Tonic (p. 239).
Look at this food, isn’t it neat?
To begin, Ronnie mashed up some ripe bananas that had been quietly fermenting on my counter all week, waiting to reach their optimal ripeness. If you like your bananas green, please exit this window, you can’t sit with us.
She added oats (ours are not verified gluten-free, but if you have Celiac disease be sure to buy a brand that is), coconut milk in place of almond milk, Sunbutter in place of cashew butter, cinnamon, organic honey, and vanilla extract. Mix well until the mixture comes together and is quite sticky. Pour into a pan lined with either parchment paper or coconut oil and even the mixture out with a fork. Then bake for precisely 12 minutes at 350F. Let it come to room temperature before slicing into bars.
This is the perfect breakfast food to prep at the beginning of the week so you can grab and go every morning.
Since acquiring a copy of this book a while back I’ve made both of these recipes countless times, and I love them. But it was way more enjoyable to have The Vegetarian Ginger cook for us, with her own culinary flare and wonderfully dry sense of humor. Do yourself a favour and check out her site here.
