School is in a full session for over two months now, so these delicious and Fluffy Cream Cheese Blueberry Pancakes make an appearance on our table quite often. We are almost at the Fall break, but temperatures are not getting any better. We are still […]
These tasty, moist and beautiful Gluten-Free Banana Cocoa Muffins are absolutely amazing for breakfast, brunch or dessert.
We were quite impressed by the gluten-free all-purpose flour and the way these muffins turned out. Yes, my family tried to eat gluten-free most of the time if we are not doing keto.
I am not saying that pizza or regular pasta never finds its way to our bellies but you know what I mean?! Gluten-free makes us feel better inside and out.
These tasty muffins are measured, tested and retested so you can make them without any issues. Seriously, you guys they are super easy.
So, if you have any ripe bananas that should be used just to make these yummy muffins. Also, I wrote in the notes alternative options.
No, you do not have to use gluten-free four or lactose-free milk, or nuts in that matter, just use what you have. All-purpose flour, regular sugar or whole milk and butter would do exactly the same purpose.
You can even shred some zucchini and carrots and use soaked raisins. Oh, possibilities are really endless when you start to play with recipes. Sometimes it works, and hey from time to time it just does not.
These are just wonderful with a cup of tea or coffee. I do not breakfast eater but these hit the spot every time I snack on it with my afternoon coffee.
If you try Gluten-Free Banana Cocoa Muffins or any other recipe from my blog, please tag me on INSTAGRAM. @sandraseasycooking #sandraseasycooking Thank you in advance!
Make sure BANANAS are ripe because they are so much better. Peel and mash with the back of the fork. Also, they keep muffins moist as well.
If you have any other substitute for an egg then our ar more than welcome to use it. I love adding eggs into my banana bread or muffins. Coconut oil, lactose-free milk because we use that milk.
I believe it is really important to measure ingredients for baking. So invest in a good scale. I have a cup scale and I am in love with it. I have similar, so I am linking it from my amazon shop.
Like I said in the recipe, you may use any type of nuts. I used almonds that I crushed in my blender. Walnuts are wonderful as well as pecans.
If you have nut allergies than skip it and maybe use dried fruit soaked in hot water or liqueur. However, it is not necessary. You can also add some chopped apples.
Yes, you can make 12 smaller or regular size muffins or perhaps a loaf although you will have to watch on how long you have to bake it. Probably lower temperature at 350F for 45 minutes.
The warm and tasty aroma while they are baking. Well, I have a feeling you guys going to love it.
I would suggest to let these cool completely, about 30 to 45 minutes eating. Okay, I know you want to eat them right away but you will just make them mushy so wait for the best results.
Check out the full recipe below. Happy Baking!
- 150-160g GF all-purpose flour
- 7g cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 60g sugar (5-6 tablespoons), I used Truvia sweetener
- Dash of salt (1/8 teaspoon)
- 85g Nuts (3 oz); almond, walnuts, pecans, cashews, etc.
- 400-500g ripe bananas (14-16 ounces), mash
- 5 tablespoon coconut oil (67-70g)
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 2-3 tablespoons Lactose-free whole milk
- Preheat oven to 400°F (190°C)
- Measure and prep everything. I mesh bananas and add wet ingredients to bananas right after measuring dry ingredients.
- Add wet to dry mixture and combine it together. Lastly, add some type of nuts. You do not have to but it tastes really good. Also, you may add chocolate chips instead. I used crushed almonds but you may use walnuts, pecans or any other on hand. READ NOTES
- Now grease a bit muffin cups and add 3/4 of the muffin cup with the batter. Never add all the way to the edge because it will go over so just fill 3/4 and allow these muffins to rise while baking.
- Bake at the PREHEATED oven. You know your oven the best, you can bake it at 400F or 375F,, between 22 and 25 minutes. IF the muffins are smaller please check with the toothpick after 18-20 minutes of baking.
Regular milk, all-purpose flour, sugar.
Unsalted butter instead of coconut oil.
Dutch cocoa instead of raw cocoa powder.
You can make it nut-free and use dried fruit soaked in water or liqueur.

Sausage and vegetable frittata recipe is my go-to meal when it comes to breakfast or brunch. It is easy for you to make, affordable so you can feed your whole family on a budget and so delicious.
Well, sausage and vegetable frittata is a perfect startup a recipe for anyone to begin cooking. It is also versatile, but frittatas are versatile in general.
Anyhow, my family is obsessed with frittatas. Sometimes I make them in cupcake or muffin tin. With that being said, if you make them that way it is just great if you are struggling with portion control.
I shared my amazing recipe for savory frittata cups. We all need one more frittata recipe, right? Click here for the recipe.
So, if you do not know what is Frittata, well it is actually an Italian version of Omellete. You would usually fold omelet in half and all the cheese and filling would be in the middle.
Personally, to me, a frittata is more of crustless quiche, but correct me if I am wrong or way off. Hey, regardless, they are so delicious and amazing to make any time of the day.
I know one thing, this kind of simple meal saved me so many times on days when I am busy. We always have ingredients to make a couple of frittatas for my whole family.

- 4-6 large eggs, mixed
- 1/2 tbsp. Oil
- 1 tbsp. unsalted Butter
- 1/4 pound Italian Sausage, sauteed (casing removed)
- 2 Scallions, chopped, reserve some of the green parts for garnish
- 4 Mushrooms, sliced
- 1/2 Green Pepper, diced
- Salt and black pepper to taste
- 3 tablespoons Heavy Whipped Cream
- 1/2 cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
- Heat a skillet, until almost smoking point then drizzle a bit of oil coating the bottom of the frying pan or a skillet.
- If the sausage is in casting, remove it and add the sausage into the skillet. Break it into small pieces and cook until cooked through, about 5 minutes on medium high. Remove the sausage from the skillet and onto a plate.
- In the skillet add butter, allow it to melt then add chopped green onions, saute for a few seconds, and add sliced mushrooms as well as green pepper.
- Allow it to cook for about 2-3 minutes on medium-high heat then put the cooked sausage back to the skillet and mix it all together. Season it with a pinch of kosher salt and black pepper. Stir well to coat.
- Meanwhile, mix eggs until they are combined, then add heavy whipped cream and just a pinch of salt. Mix it well until well combined.
- Pour the egg mixture into the skillet over the sausage mixture, and let it cook for a couple of minutes on the stove top.
- You may flip it on the other side and add cheese, OR preheat a broiler on high and cook under broiler for about 30-40 seconds. Make sure 1. That you have Oven SAFE skillet or frying pan. 2. Watch it so the frittata does not burn because it is under the broiler and it will bake fast.
- After 30-40 seconds, take the frittata out and add cheese. Put it back in the oven again for another 30-40 seconds or until the cheese is melted.
- Take it out of the oven when the cheese is bubbly and completely melted.
- Garnish frittata with those reserved green parts of scallions and serve hot and immediately!
- You may use milk instead of whipped cream.
- you can use ground beef instead of Italian sausage.
- If you dislike mushrooms please omit. You may use whatever you wish in the frittata.
- Provolone cheese or mild cheddar might work well in the frittata.
- Use as many eggs as you can eat. I usually go by two per person but that all depends. I like adding one extra because my husband or my boys love eggs.

My family loves crepes, sweet or savory, even though we are more sweet tooth peeps. I try not to make them often simply because I cannot resist eating a few before they even end up on the table. I’m not joking.
We eat it with Nutella, jam, or maple syrup. Sometimes, I would mix crushed walnuts and sugar, or honey and use that as a spread. It makes a wonderful snack, breakfast, or even dessert. Read more…
Do you like Cold Brew? Are you buying it all the time? Well, I got to tell you that I stopped buying coffee altogether in the coffee shops unless I am meeting a friend.

Easy and delicious Classic pancakes for breakfast, brunch or any time you crave them.
Warm, buttery and sweet smell flow through the air as hot pancakes are lifted from the pan. Butter is slowly sliding down the pancakes, leaving a light yellow trail behind it.
