Happy friday everyone!

I know I know, it’s been a while… but life has been a little busy lately and I haven’t had time to blog as much. My house is under construction (which is driving me C R A Z Y), and my MBA classes are consuming almost all my free time. But better later than never, right? Now I’m back and I promise to come here more often.

“Banana Bred” Americano Versão Saudável

Olá amores, tudo bem?

Como andam as coisas ai no Brasil? Aqui está tudo ótimo.. Meu MBA começou ontem novamente e eu nem acredito que já estamos quase em Setembro! Sério, o tempo está V-O-A-N-D-O!!!

Mas então, vamos falar de comida? Eu sempre gostei de bolo de banana ou o famoso “banana bread” aqui dos EUA, mas esse especialmente ficou TOP! Eu usei o mix do Kodiak Cakes com sabor de aveia e canela ao invés da farina integral. Com certeza deu um toque especial na receita e deixou o “banana bread” super macio e com sabor extra de canela que eu AMO!

Bolo Integral de banana e nozes

Good morning!!!!

Um bolinho #fit sempre cai bem né?

Há umas 2 semanas atrás, em um daqueles finais de semana que não podia sair de casa pois estava “chovendo gelo”, eu fui pra cozinha, peguei os ingredientes que tinha em casa e fiz esse bolo de banana com nozes que ficou DELICIOSOOOO!

Eu particulamente gosto de sempre ter um doce “do bem” nesses dias de frio em que ficamos em casa o dia inteiro assistindo netflix (quem nunca?)… Assim não fico pensando em comer besteira e me ajuda a NÃO atacar no pote de Nutella do maridão.

Bom anotem aí a receita pois é superrrr fácil e fica uma delícia!

Bolo Integral de Banana e Nozes

Ingredientes:

  • 1 xic. de farinha integral
  • 1 xic. de farinha de aveia
  • 1 xic. de açúcar mascavo
  • 3 ovos batidos
  • 1/2 xic. de óleo de sua preferência
  • 1 pote de iogurte grego natural (substituí pelo leite e deixou o bolo bem fofinho)
  • canela a gosto
  • 1 col. de sopa de fermento em pó
  • 2 bananas maduras picadas
  • 1/2 xic. de nozes picadas

16251361_1642337689115064_169844641_o

Modo de preparo: Misture as farinhas, a canela, o açúcar e reserve. Aos poucos adicione os ovos, óleo e iogurte. Depois de obter uma massa homogênea adicione o fermento, as bananas e as nozes. Transfira a massa para uma forma untada, asse em forno pré-aquecido a 250° por uns 35-40 min e PRONTO. Sirva ainda quentinho que fica melhor ainda!

Espero que tenham gostado da receita 🙂

Beijos
