cacao pudding with a sliced banana

Lately I have been loving oats, quick recipes, cacao and actually…everything which is starchy, sugary and sweet! Haven’t been craving fats at all, just starches – oats, fruit, pancakes, jam. I don’t know what’s happening with me, just thinking of green salad makes me wanna puke a little, haha. But I should definitely get more greens in…

Anyways, I want to share this simple sugary recipe with you. Low in fat, high in carbohydrates, vegan, healthy and satisfying.

What you need:

  • oats, I used about 1/2 cup
  • oat milk, about 1/2 cup
  • 1 heaping Tbsp rice flour (used glutinous one from Japanese shop)
  • 1 tsp low fat cocoa powder
  • coconut sugar – 1 Tbsp or as much as you like, you can of course use maple,agave or rice syrup…
  • banana (optional)

Steps:

Put oats into a mug, add cocoa, sugar and flour. Mix well. Put boiling water over it, until it’s all covered (about 1/2┬ácup), than add 1/2 – 3/4 cup of oat milk. As thick or as liquid-y as you like it. Let it sit for 1 minute or so, slice a banana on the top and enjoy. Yum, yum, yum!

I have sweet tooth, that’s certain. I love sweet foods, but luckily I crave healthy ones(most of the times,:D). I love fruit, dried fruits, millet porridges, whole-grain or gluten-free cookies or muffins and some raw food creations. I love to enjoy my food so I try to choose something which makes me feel good- now but also LATER,haha(of course sometimes it happens that we overdo things and we lay with bloated belly in bed thinking why we have done that, but that’s the beauty of being human,lol).

So sometimes we need something satisfying but also quick, delicious and light. I usually have some bananas at home so I used them for this recipe.

Ingredients:

  • ripe banana(s)-use as much as you want, but 1-2 are usually enough
  • 1 Tbsp (raw) tahini per 1 large banana
  • raw cacao nibs( crushed), or you can use powder

Preparation:

Haha this can’t be easier. Peel your banana-slice it or use it whole. Spread your tahini on the top. Sprinkle with cacao. Eat & enjoy.

I absolutely love this recipe, it’s so easy and delicious!
