Barley and Apple Breakfast Porridge (vegan) / Jutarnja ječmena kaša s jabukama (veganska)

We’re kinda low on oats at home at the moment and I am trying to improvise with ingredients we already have on hand, since things so easily accumulate in our fridge and pantry over time. As I mostly eat oatmeal for breakfast, I needed to come up with an alternative and hence made up this barley porridge combo. We also had some sad apples sitting around and they were a welcome and delicious addition to the whole situation.

IMGP8823

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 servings / 0.74 EUR per serving / 2.94 EUR for all)

2 apples (0.40 EUR)

1 tbsp lemon juice (0.07 EUR)

2 tsp ground cinnamon (0.13 EUR)

1 tbsp coconut oil (0.07 EUR)

4 cups cooked barley (0.13 EUR)

2 cups plant based milk (0.80 EUR)

4 tbsp ground flax seeds (0.27 EUR)

4 tbsp sunflower seeds (0.53 EUR)

4 tbsp raisins (0.27 EUR)

4 tbsp date syrup (0.27 EUR)

IMGP8824

METHOD:

Peel, core and dice the apples. Toss with lemon juice and cinnamon then add to a saucepan with coconut oil on medium heat. Cook for about 5-10 minutes, until apples are slightly caramelized and softened. While the apples are cooking assemble the bowls. Divide the ingredients between four bowls, top with cooked apples and finally drizzle everything with date syrup. This also works really well for meal prep, so just reheat it when you plan on eating.

Trenutno doma loše stojimo sa zobenim pahuljicama, pa pokušavam improvizirati sa sastojcima koji su mi pri ruci, pošto se hrana tijekom vremena lako nakupi u frižideru i špajzi. Kako uglavnom za doručak jedem zobenu kašu, trebala mi je neka alternativa pa sam tako i došla do ove kombinacije sa zobenom kašom. Osim toga, imali smo i neke tužne jabučice koje su na kraju ispale odličan dodatak u cijeloj ovoj priči.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 5,50 kn po porciji / 22,00 kn za sve)

2 jabuke (3,00 kn)

1 žlica limunovog soka (0,50 kn)

2 žličice cimeta (1,00 kn)

1 žlica kokosovog ulja (0,50 kn)

4 šalice kuhanog ječma (1,00 kn)

2 šalice veganskog mlijeka (6,00 kn)

4 žlice mljevenih sjemenki lana (2,00 kn)

4 žlice suncokretovih sjemenki (4,00 kn)

4 žlice grožđica (2,00 kn)

4 žlice sirupa od datulja (2,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Ogulite jabuke, očistite ih od koštica i narežite na kockice. Pomiješajte sa sokom od limuna, pa ubacite u lončić sa kokosovim uljem na srednje jakoj vatri. Kuhajte 5-10 minuta dok jabuke ne omekšaju i blago se ne karameliziraju. Dok se jabuke kuhaju, složite zdjelice. Raspodijelite sve sastojke između četiri zdjelice, dodajte kuhane jabuke i za kraj sve pokapajte sirupom od datulja. Ovo je super jelo i za prirediti unaprijed i ponijeti na posao, pa samo sve skupa ugrijte prije nego što navalite.

Cacao and Apple Sauce Granola (vegan) / Granola sa kakaom i pireom od jabuka (veganska)

The end of the year means that I am cleaning out my pantry and using up all the odd bits and pieces I might have lingering around. Granola is always a perfect project for such situations since it is so customizable and flexible.

IMGP8774

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 8 servings / 0.44 EUR per serving / 3.48 EUR for all)

2 cups apple sauce (0.67 EUR)

¼ cup coconut oil (0.40 EUR)

Pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

4 cups rolled oats (0.53 EUR)

2 tbsp raw cacao powder (0.27 EUR)

2 tsp ground cinnamon (0.13 EUR)

½ cup ground flax seeds (0.27 EUR)

½ cup sunflower seeds (0.53 EUR)

½ cup pumpkin seeds (0.67 EUR)

IMGP8775

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 175°C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Whisk apple sauce, coconut oil and salt in a large bowl then add in the oats, cacao powder, cinnamon, flax seeds, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds. Stir well to combine, making sure that everything is well coated with apple sauce. I find that it’s just easiest to get in there with my hands. Spread the granola evenly on a prepared baking sheet and bake for 30-40 minutes, while stirring once halfway though. Allow the granola to cool down completely on its baking sheet before transferring to an airtight container. Keep the granola in a cool, dry place where it can hold on for weeks.

Kraj godine znači da čistim kuhinju i špajzu te pokušavam iskoristiti razne ostatke ovoga i onoga koji mi se povlače naokolo. Granola je uvijek odličan projekt za takve situacije jer je tako lako prilagodljiva i fleksibilna.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 8 porcija / 3,25 kn po porciji / 26.01 kn za sve)

2 šalice pirea od jabuka (5,00 kn)

¼ šalice kokosovog ulja (3,00 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

4 šalice krupnih zobenih pahuljica (4,00 kn)

2 žlice sirovog kakao praha (2,00 kn)

2 žličice cimeta u prahu (1,00 kn)

½ šalice mljevenih sjemenki lana (2,00 kn)

½ šalice suncokretovih sjemenki (4,00 kn)

½ šalice bučinih sjemenki (5,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 175°C te obložite protvan papirom za pečenje. U velikoj zdjeli pomiješajte skupa pire od jabuke, kokosovo ulje i sol, pa ubacite unutra zobene pahuljice, kakao, cimet, lan, suncokretove i bućine sjemenke. Dobro promiješajte da sve bude obloženo pireom od jabuke. Meni je nekako najjednostavnije zasukati rukave i navaliti rukama. Raširite granolu u jednoličnom sloju na pripremljenom protvanu i pecite 30 – 40 minuta, s time da na pola pečenja jednom sve dobro promiješate. Pustite da se granola skroz ohladi na protvanu prije nego ju premjestite u hermetički zatvorenu posudu. Granolu čuvajte na suhom, hladnom mjestu gdje će vam držati tjednima.

Scoop the cookie dough out onto a prepared baking tray, but be sure to space them out a bit, as they will expand a little while they bake. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the cookies are slightly cracked and fragrant.

The cookies are going to be very soft when they come out of the oven, but don’t worry, they will firm up as they cool down. Allow the cookies to cool for about five minutes on their baking tray before transferring to a rack to cool completely. The cookies will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for several days.

Ove kekse možete smućkati u trenu, a lista sastojaka je super kratka. Osim toga, sami keksići su i relativno zdravi, pa možete u njima uživati bez krivnje idući puta kada vas pukne želja za nečim slatkim.

SASTOJCI:

(Za oko 25 keksića / 0,70 kn po keksu / 17,49 kn za sve)

½ šalice sirupa od datulja (1,50 kn)

2 žlice kikiriki maslaca (2,00 kn)

¼ šalice veganskog mlijeka (0,75 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

2 šalice mljevenih oraha (10,00 kn)

2 žlice sirovog kakao praha (2,00 kn)

2 žlice brašna od slanutka (1,00 kn)

¼ žličice praška za pecivo (0,03 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 180°C, a protvan obložite papirom za pečenje. U većoj zdjeli pomiješajte sirup od datulja, maslac od kikirikija, mlijeko i ekstrakt vanilije. Dodajte orahe, kakao, brašno od slanutka, prašak za pecivo i sol. Sve dobro promiješajte da se sjedini i da ne bude grudica.

Tijesto grabite na pripremljeni protvan, s time da pazite da su kuglice tijesta malo razmaknute jer će se raširiti kako se peku. Pecite 10-12 minuta, dok keksići ne zamiriše i lagano se ne raspucaju.

Keksi će biti jako mekani kada ih izvadite iz pećnice, ali budite bez brige jer će se stisnuti kako se budu hladili. Pustite keksiće da se pet minuta hlade na protvanu, a onda ih preselite na rešetku i ohladite do kraja. Čuvajte ih na sobnoj temperaturi u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi, gdje mogu držati nekoliko dana.

Walnut Apple Cake (refined sugar free) / Kolač od oraha i jabuka (bez rafiniranog šećera)

Even though the apple and walnut combo is more reminiscent of autumn, you can definitely treat yourself with this cake any time of the year. Even more so, since the weather has been all over the place lately and we’ve had a fair dose of cold and miserable days. Unfortunately, there are no photos of cake slices since I hauled the whole tray to work, but just imagine a juicy and rich square bites and you’re on the right track. Also, the office gang wholeheartedly approved. 🙂

Also, a little note: while the cake batter itself is refined sugar free, it depends on which dark chocolate you use if the ganache is going to be that way as well.

In a bowl whisk together ground walnuts, flour, baking powder and salt. Pour the wet mix over dry ingredients, then stir until just combined. Transfer the batter to a prepared pan and bake for about 30-35 minutes, until the cake is deep golden brown and a skewer inserted inside comes out clean. Leave the cake to cool to room temperature.

Once the cake cools down, melt the chocolate with butter and pour over the cake. Even out with a spatula and cool in the fridge so the chocolate sets. Remove the cake from pan, slice and serve chilled.

Iako kombinacija jabuka i oraha ima u sebi štih jeseni, definitivno nećete pogriješiti ako se počastite ovim kolačem u bilo koje doba godine. Time više što je zadnjih dana vrijeme poprilično hirovito, sa poštenom dozom hladnih i jadnih trenutaka. Na žalost, nemam za vas slike narezanog kolača pošto sam cijeli protvan odvukla na posao, ali zamislite bogate i sočne zalogaje i na pravom ste tragu. Također, škvadra iz ureda je svesrdno podržala kolač. 🙂

I za kraj, mala napomena: sam biskvit je bez rafiniranog šećera, ali kakva će biti i glazira naravno ovisi o tome koju ćete čokoladu upotrijebiti.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 48 kockica veličine zalogaja / 1,05 kn po kockici / 50,61 kn za sve)

Za biskvit:

200 g tamne čokolade (20,00 kn)

3 žlice maslaca (3,00 kn)

Dodatno:

Ulje za namastiti kalup (0,05 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C. Lagano namastite protvan te ga obložite papirom za pečenje. Ogulite i očistite jabuke od sjemenki, pa ih ubacite u multipraktik i usitnite u pastu. Dodajte unutra jaja, vaniliju, sirup od datulja i vrhnje. Pulsirajte 2-3 minute dok smjesa ne bude jednolična i prozračna.

U zdjeli pomiješajte mljevene orahe, brašno, prašak za pecivo i sol. Prelijte mokre sastojke preko suhih i promiješajte tek toliko koliko treba da se sve sjedini. Smjesu preselite u pripremljeni protvan i pecite oko 30-35 minuta, dok biskvit ne bude zlatno-smeđe boje, a upiknuta čačkalica ne izađe čista. Pustite da se biskvit ohladi na sobnu temperaturu.

Rastopite čokoladu sa maslacem i prelijte preko ohlađenog biskvita. Poravnajte špatulom i ohladite u frižideru da se čokolada stisne. Izvadite kolač iz kalupa, narežite na kockice i poslužite hladan.

I suggest that you drop everything you are doing right now and go make these brownies. They are scrumptious, rich and actually on a healthy side.

Peanut Butter Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies (vegan, gluten free) / Karamel čoko keksići sa kikiriki maslacem (veganski, bez glutena)

These cookies are so, so good and actually quite healthy. They are vegan, gluten free and depending on the chocolate you use, can also be refined sugar free. The rich caramel taste comes from the date syrup, which I was very excited to try out after scoring it at a health food store. If you don’t have any date syrup, you can totally swap it for honey, date paste or any other sweetener of your choice. You will have to tweak the wet and dry ingredients ratio a bit, though.

Dollop the batter onto prepared baking tray. Be sure to space the cookies a bit, as they will expand a little while they bake. Using a back of a spoon, flatten the cookies down a bit. Bake for 15 minutes, until the cookies are slightly browned.

The cookies are going to be very soft when they come out of the oven, but don’t worry, they will firm up as they cool down. Allow the cookies to cool for about five minutes on their baking tray before transferring to a rack to cool completely.

Ovi keksići ne samo da su jako ukusni, već su i prilično zdravi. Veganski su, bez glutena, a ovisno o čokoladi koju ćete upotrijebiti, mogu biti i bez rafiniranog šećera. Bogat okus karamele daje im sirup od datulja, koji sam jedva dočekala isprobati nakon što sam ga upecala u jednom dućanu sa zdravom hranom. Naravno, ako nemate sirup od datulja, svakako ga možete zamijeniti medom, pastom od datulja ili kojim drugim zaslađivačem po vašem izboru. Jedino imajte na umu kako ćete vjerojatno trebati i malo prilagoditi omjer mokrih i suhih sastojaka.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 20-tak keksića / 0,78 kn po keksu / 13,56 kn za sve)

¼ šalice sirupa od datulja (0,75 kn)

3 žlice kikiriki maslaca (3,00 kn)

1 i ½ šalica veganskog mlijeka (4,50 kn)

1 i ½ šalica zobenog brašna (2,25 kn)

2 žlice mljevenih sjemenski lana (0,50 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

½ žličice praška za pecivo (0,05 kn)

3 reda tamne čokolade (4,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 180°C, a protvan obložite papirom za pečenje. Nasjeckajte čokoladu na male komadiće. U zdjeli pomiješajte sirup od datulja, kikiriki maslac i mlijeko, sve dok smjesa ne bude glatka i kremasta. Dodajte zobeno brašno, lan, sol i prašak za pecivo, pa miješajte dok se sve ne sjedini. U smjesu nježno umiješajte čokoladu.

Smjesu grabite na pripremljen protvan, s time da pazite da keksiće malo razmaknete jer će se mrvicu raširiti kako se budu pekli. Sa stražnjom stranom žlice lagano spljoštite svaki keks. Pecite 15 minuta, dok keksići lagano ne posmeđe.

Keksi će biti prilično mekani kada izađu iz pećnice, ali budite bez brige, očvrsnuti će kako se budu hladili. Pustite keksiće da se jedno pet minuta hlade na protvanu prije nego ih preselite na rešetku i tako ohladite do kraja. Keksi će u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi držati na sobnoj temperaturi 3-4 dana.
