Banana Bites

banana bites



I am a big fan of food blogger Angela Liddon and like her beautiful cookbook, The Oh She Glows Cookbook. It features 100 Vegan Recipes to Glow From the Inside Out. I am not a vegan but absolutely love her cookbook because I love to try everything and to make healthy meals during the week. In this cookbook she uses real food ingredients.

Since I am passionate about food photography I could not stop looking at her gorgeous pictures of the finished dishes. Her photos are mouth-watering. I can't tell you how many times I made the effortless vegan overnight oats. It's not only nutritious, it's also delicious, and when I wake up in the morning, breakfast is ready.

Since I have a sweet tooth I am featuring a recipe for Banana Bites. I was inspired by Angela to make my bites. I decided to top the bites with almond butter as well as Cinnamon Granola Raisin Peanut Butter. Then I added melted Sea Salt Chocolate and topped the bites with a mix of almonds, peanuts, and dark chocolate. This treat is so delicious! You can try different toppings if you wish.

Her cookbook is great for cooks at any level of experience, whether you are a beginner or advanced. You will probably bookmark all her recipes like me. Next recipe I will try is her favorite veggie burger. We are hosting a BBQ on Sunday, and it will be the perfect recipe to try.

  2. This cookbook has been on my wishlist for a while now (it has amazing ratings on amazon, and you love it as well!). I want to share and expose my friends and family members to delicious healthy vegan recipes. I am a creature of habit and am not creative when it comes to meal planning, so this cookbook would definitely be a treat for myself as well.

  7. If I had written this post myself, I would have said so many of the same things! Angela's photography is awe-inspiring and her recipes are so creative. I am not a vegan but bought this book shortly after it was released and have given it as a gift a few times, always to non-vegans. Everyone should have it. Your banana bites look delicious too, your own photography is quite impressive! Pinning!
