Coconut Flour Pumpkin Bar

Fall is all abt pumpkin, isn’t it ? Well , may be not. Pumpkin bars using coconut flour turned out good. Found recipe on YouTube and I think channel was clean and delicious or something like that.

Cooking with good ingredients is good. I used organic coconut flour and organic maple syrup. Recipe is so simple :

1 can 15oz pumpkin purée. Nothing added to it .

3/4th cup coconut flour, 1/2 cup maple syrup, 2 eggs , 1/4 cup almond milk (I used regular milk), pumpkin spice, cinnamon powder , pinch of salt. And 1/2 tsp baking powder.

Mix everything together. Add some chocolate cups and nuts .

Bake at 350 degree Fahrenheit for 40-45 minutes.

They were mildly sweet so I topped it with little maple syrup while eating .


Instant Fig Jam

Got few figs y’day. It was a surprise and few were more than few I could eat. For breakfast, made instant fig jam. Few still left.

Chop figs roughly. Start cooking and add little fresh lemon juice. Throw 1-2 cloves and small stick of cinnamon.

Now if you have orange , add little zest of it . Gives a very good flavor.

When water is almost gone from figs, remove from heat. Add some chia seeds to thicken jam.

Voila , jam ready. I am having it on a toast with goat cheese .


Avocado With Sprouts

Avocado and sprouts together taste very good . If you are like me , then when you have avocado, sprouts are not ready and by the time sprouts are ready , avocado is eaten up. This time I had half avocado and alfalfa sprouts.

When you are busy, this is a good filling combination. Use on toast or Indian thepla or Paratha. Simple yet delicious, nutritious.


Quinoa Oat Uttapam

Indian kind of pancake. Taste good . Soak quinoa , steel cut oat and 1 tsp of yellow split peas or lentil. Indian ppl can add Chana dal and urad dal. This will give a good flavour . Quinoa and oat can be half half cup or adjust whatever you have , like. Soak for 2 -3 hrs.

Blend it with little water and keep consistency like pancake batter. Not too thick and not too thin.

Add finely chopped red onion, cilantro, salt. You can also also add grated carrot , chopped green chili.

Use olive oil to coat skillet and drop few drops around as it cooks .

Try it out if it appeals to you.
