Banana Bread

My Best Banana Bread

Guys, I think I’m addicted… To banana bread! So are my grandparents, by the way. Yesterday, I came back from visiting my grandparents in France. They wanted to live a bit healthier, but they still wanted to treat themselves. I decided to help them and I baked my favourite banana bread. They absolutely loved it! This one is so easy to make and you don’t even need a mixer. In France, I used a whisk because I couldn’t find anything else but it turned out amazing! Anyway, we all loved it so much that I had to make three banana breads in only 1 week. It was kind of all I ate while I was there, haha! (Just kidding ofcourse). Here we gooo:

You will need:
75 grams of ground almonds
75 grams of oat bran
1,5-2 tsp. of baking powder
1 tsp. of cinnamon
a pinch of salt
3 eggs
2 tbsp. of soy milk
2 tsp. of lemon juice
3 mashed, ripe bananas
And if you like, you can add some chopped walnuts or dried cranberries. I added some pine nuts and grated coconut.

What you’ll need to do:

Banana Bread First of all, preheat your oven at 175 degrees Celsius and grease your cake tin.

Put the dry ingredients in a large bowl and make sure everything is mixed well. In another bowl, beat your eggs (with a whisk or a mixer, it doesn’t really matter) and add the remaining wet ingredients, with the mashed bananas at last. You can now put your wet ingredients in the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix it in really well. That’s it! If you wanted to add something extra to your banana bread, now is the time. As I said I used some pine nuts for this one. I sprinkled the coconut op top when I poured it in the tin, which takes us to the next step.

Pour your mixture in the loaf/cake tin and put it in the preheated oven for about 30-35 minutes. Keep an eye on your banana bread because the baking time might be a little bit different for your oven. To check if your banana bread is ready, put a skewer in the middle of your bread, if it comes out clean, it’s ready!


I absolutely love this recipe and I hope you will too.

Silo Coffee Berlin

Berlin’s best restaurants/ coffee shops

Well hello there 🙂

I actually wanted to write a berlin ‘travel diary’ and just tell you guys about what I did when I visited my brother, but when I started writing it I came to the conclusion that the only interesting things I wanted to talk about were coffee shops and restaurants. That’s why today, I am telling you about a few of my favourite places to drink/ eat something in Berlin!

So, a few weeks ago, I went to Berlin to visit my brother. He had studied at the TU Berlin for 6 months and the time was almost up. I already went to Berlin a few years ago, at Christmas. Because of that we didn’t go to all the hotspots and ‘important’ things to see when you go to Berlin. My brother showed me Berlin from the inside, and it was amazing. We went to those places you only know when you live there, do you know what I mean? Well let me tell you, I am gonna tell you exactly where you should go when you’re in Berlin for a few days.

Here we go:

Silo Coffee
Silo Coffee is a coffee shop in Friedrichshain, which is a neighbourhood in Berlin. It is owned by Australian people, and it’s extremely popular. The shop itself isn’t very big but very stylish. You’ll probably have to wait a while for a table, because we had too. The people working there were very nice and chilled out and we could even order before we even had a table, so that when we did get a table, we didn’t have to wait very long until our food came. Speaking of the food, it was amazing. The menu was not that large but it had enough to choose from, you could even build your own toast. Which means you can choose what’s ON the toast, you don’t actually BUILD the toast, by the way ;). Conclusion: Totally worth it, go check it out.

Café 93 (pronounced neun-drei)
Another a coffee shop you should check out is Café 93. My brother was obsessed with this coffee shop (not only because it was near his apartment, the coffee was indeed also very good). He went here so much that even the waiters knew what he wanted to drink – I hope that proves how much he came there ;). They have all kinds of treats and home-made pastries, which are delicious. Every day they have different things to choose from, but it doesn’t really matter anyway because they all taste amazing. They have healthy choices as well as guilty-pleasures. They have a lot of smoothies as well. The vibe in the place itself is again very chilled. The people are very friendly and it is a little bit modern-ish, although it’s also still sorta rustic (not sure if that the right word haha).

House of Small Wonder
Time for brekkie? Go to House of Small Wonder. It’s a little restaurant hidden away behind the Friedrichstadt-Palast. This is probably the most beautiful restaurant for breakfast I’ve ever been to. It’s decorated with loads of plants and it has an Asian vibe to it. You can also have lunch here, but we went there for breakfast. You’ll never guess what I had – it was a croissant, but as FRENCH TOAST. Yep, you read that right. French toast. Man, that was delicious! I promise you, if you don’t know this place, you won’t find it. That’s because we did know this place but we still couldn’t find it. U-huh.

An einem Sonntag im August
This is a bar/ restaurant in Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg. We only had a drink in here but you can also have dinner. It was pretty cool because we sat on some sort of stand (if you know what I mean). It was kinda like stairs made from wood with cushions on it. You might think that’s weird and uncomfortable but it was really nice and well-thought because it gives people way more room to sit and have a drink. They have a variety of cocktails and drinks, but as I said you can also order some food. About the food, I can’t say a lot because I didn’t eat anything there, we were just having a drink. But it looked good ;).

Scotch & Sofa
Scotch & Sofa is also a bar, and also placed in Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg. I love the name of this place, and the name really comes back in the bar itself. It is furnished with loads of different sofas and chairs. All different kinds. You can get cocktails as well as your regular drinks, but I do recommend getting a cocktail, of course. Don’t forget, you can also get ya scotch, as the name says. You should check it out, it’s so cool!

At our first day, we went to Umami. It’s an Asian Fusion restaurant, and highly appreciated. You really get what you pay for, or as my brother likes to say: it’s very good value for money.
We ordered several small dishes, to share. I must say, I personally don’t really like the Asian kitchen, but it did look really good. Everyone else seemed to enjoy it J. There was an area in the restaurant where was one big table, and people were sitting on cushions on the ground. On the other side of the restaurant there were just tables with regular seats. It was really cool.

La Buvette
As you can probably tell, this is a French place. La Buvette is a French restaurant which is yet again placed in Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg. Even the owners are French. You might think, why would I go to a French restaurant when I’m on a trip in Germany? And I get that, but I do not regret going to this restaurant. Again, it was quite rustic but in a whole different way than House of Small Wonder. It’s just very French. On the wall, there was a chalkboard with the dishes written on it. Not to forget, the quality of the food was really good.

I hope that if you are ever in Berlin, you will take the time to visit these places. I really enjoyed going here and you will definitely too!

And last but not least, because I could not not put it in this blogpost, I got some pictures from street art in RAW-Gelände. This place was just too cool.RAW-Gelände Berlin

Smoothiebowl Mango/Acai Recipe

Smoothie bowl: Magic Mango x Amazing Açaí

Hello dear friends!

Hope you’ve all had an amazing weekend! My weekend included a lot of guilty pleasures, so I decided to kick off this week with a fresh and healthy start!

Açaí bowls are the perfect mix between a delicious breakfast smoothie and ice cream. It makes you full and satisfied for hours. Topped with crunchy granola and fresh fruits, this smoothie bowl is a treat for the eye (and mouth ofcourse).

First, let me tell you some facts about the açaí berry. The word açaí is pronounced ah-sah-EE. This purply-pink South-American berry is full of heart-healthy fats, anti-oxidants, minerals and fibers, and very low on sugar. It’s not always easy to find açaí in the supermarket, but most health food stores and several online stores sell this popular fruit frozen or as powder. I prefer to use açaí powder from RAW Organic Food.

For best results, make sure to use a high-powered blender, as you use frozen ingredients. Before I transfer the smoothie to a bowl, I put the empty bowl in the fridge for a few minutes. Due to this your acai bowl won’t melt right away and you can take the best picture! Let’s start!

What you’ll need for 1 serving:

  • ½ frozen sliced banana
  • ½ cup frozen raspberries
  • 1 cup frozen mango (sliced)
  • 2 tablespoons açaí powder
  • 2 ice cubes
  • ½ cup almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons rolled oats
  • optional: ¼ to ½ tablespoon honey, to sweeten it


  • Dried banana chips
  • Granola
  • Fresh mango
  • Fresh raspberries or blueberries
  • Mint leaves
  • Unsweetened coconut flakes
  • Chia seed

Let’s get blending:

Put the frozen banana, raspberries, mango, acai powder, almond milk (and honey) in the blender. Blend until it has a consistency of a thick and creamy smoothie, adding extra milk if needed.

Transfer the mixture to a cereal bowl and go nuts on the toppings.

Last but not least, take a photo of this pretty breakfast bowl! Don’t forget to share some pictures and tag me! 🙂

Weekend Basics: Stylish and Comfortable

Last weekend, I went on a shopping trip with my sister, and scored some new basic must-haves for spring. I went to the ‘Negen Straatjes’ (nine little streets) in Amsterdam; a charming mixture of designer boutiques and vintage fashion stores. These are a few items I bought – plus how to style them!

This elegant lace bralette is classic with a sporty twist.

‘The biggest AMATØR’ Sweater // AMATØR
Be sure to have at least one comfy grey sweater in your closet. This is the softest thing ever, you won’t ever wanna take it off!

My favourite ‘healthy’ pecan cranberry cookies with dates

Hi guys,

I hope y’all are craving for some tasty ass cookies, because if you are, this is the place to be. The best thing? They’re guilt-free! Today is all about cranberry cookies.

So, a little while ago, my sisters were in town again (YAY!). We really wanted to bake -and eat- something real good. One of my sisters came with this recipe, and the results were deliciousss.

Alright then, the cookies! ‘Healthy’ pecan cranberry cookies with dates. These are probably the best ‘healthy’ cookies I’ve ever had. They’re nice and chewy, and they taste sooo good! Disclaimer: I’m writing ‘healthy’ within quotation marks, because the fact that they’re not that bad for you does NOT mean you could eat a whole bunch of them without feeling bad. Trust me, I’ve been there ;).

What you’ll need:

  • 150 grams of pitted dates, cut into slices
  • 125 grams of dried cranberries
  • about 16 grams of baking powder
  • 5 tbsp. of coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tbsp. of hot water
  • 2 eggs
  • about 1 tbsp. of honey (you can add a little bit more if you want the cookies to be sweeter)
  • 1 tsp. of vanilla extract
  • 100 grams of oat flour (we simply just ground some oats)
  • 125 grams of rice flour
  • a (heaped) tsp. of cinnamon
  • about a hand full of pecans, chopped (but again you can add more or less if you want to)
  • for decoration, save some whole pecans to put on top of your cookies

Let’s get baking:

For starters, put the dates and cranberries in a bowl. Add the coconut oil, baking powder and the two tablespoons of hot water and combine well. You can now set this aside.

Don’t forget to preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius (356 degrees Fahrenheit)!

In another bowl, mix the eggs with the honey and the vanilla extract. Stir the remaining dry ingredients (the 2 types of flour and the cinnamon) into the mixture.

If everything is fully incorporated, you can add your cranberry mixture. Make sure that everything is well combined. To do this, you can use a wooden spoon or, if you’re die-hard, your own hands. Keep in mind that the mixture is probably not your regular cookie dough, it might be a bit sticky. At this point you can add your chopped pecans and then it’s ready to go in the oven!

You can make little heaps of your dough and form your cookies with two spoons on a lined baking tray. We made about 12 big cookies out of this recipe, but it’s your call if you want them to be a little bit smaller or maybe bigger. The original recipe said 8 big cookies so it’s completely your call. At this point it’s time to add the remaining whole pecans. Just put them on top of your cookies.

Now is your final step, put them in the oven for about 20 minutes, or until they are nice and golden. Keep in mind that every oven is different and your baking time may vary. Also, you’ll have to remember that if you change the size of your cookies, the baking time changes as well. The bigger your cookies, the longer they’ll have to bake.

That’s it! It might look a little bit complicated it’s actually super easy! I hope you enjoy this recipe and make the cookies yourself. If you do, share some pictures of them and tag me. I would love to see them! ❤

See ya laterzzzz
