Fluffy Banana Mesquite Pancakes

By: Mariella Irivarren, Part-Owner of Miski Organics

Gluten Free & Vegan

*Makes 12 small Pancakes (4” diameter)*

Sometimes I just crave a fancy breakfast, and for me, that means PANCAKES!

Pancakes remind me of Sunday morning breakfast with my family. It reminds me of a good time, good food, and good company. All my life however, I viewed pancakes as a “treat”, a “cheat meal”, and an overall unhealthy breakfast choice’ so I would limit how often I had them.

A few weeks back I had a massive craving for pancakes, so I set out to create a version that would be good for my taste buds and my health. Using incredible superfoods I have in my pantry, I was able to create ones that were fluffy, tasty, and a little sweet – just how I like them!

These pancakes are easy to make and easier to eat; and if you’ve got little one’s at home – guaranteed they’ll love them too!

Chocolate Power Protein Smoothie

Gluten Free & Vegan

*Makes One Individual Serving*

For the last two years I have made a delicious chocolate protein smoothie that I LOVE. Since Miski Organics introduced their new Tara Protein Powder however, I wanted to see if I could recreate my favourite go-to smoothie with one that incorporates Tara, and a variety of other superfoods.

Well… I did it! I was able to recreate this delicious, chocolatey, dessert-like smoothie with all the superfoods and zero guilt! This smoothie tastes like melted chocolate ice cream, seriously. It can be as thick or as runny as you’d like, and more or less chocolatey based on your taste buds.

I love making smoothies because they are so simple yet so nutritious and filling. For this recipe I used natural ripe banana powder instead of regular bananas (they always seem to go brown on me), and it also uses sacha inchi powder and sacha inchi butter to give it a nutty flavour, without the nuts!

Nut-Free Super Energy Bars

Nut Free, Gluten Free & Vegan

*Makes 12 regular bars*

In an effort to keep my snacking under control, I had the urge to make something sweet, crunchy, tasty, filling, HEALTHY, and all-around satisfying. Inspired by the famous GLO Bars from Oh She Glows, I wanted to challenge myself to re-create these using new ingredients and ramping up the superfoods.

Following the base recipe from Oh She Glows, I was able to substitute several ingredients with my favourite Miski Organics Superfoods and even added a few extra items to suit my taste… and let me tell you, the end result did not disappoint!

This super-charged energy bar is loaded with plant protein, fiber, amino acids, antioxidants, omegas and so much more! They are easy to make and easy to eat, and they’ll become your new go-to health snack. Don’t worry if you do not have some of these superfoods at home, I have provided some easy substitutes at the end of the post.

5 Minute Mug Brownie (Vegan & Gluten-Free)

*Makes 1 personal-sized brownie*

Have you ever felt like needing something sweet but being too lazy to bake something? Me too! Several times in fact.

I have seen multiple videos on Facebook of amazing desserts being made in mugs, so one lazy evening when I really wanted a brownie but didn’t want to go through the hassle of baking a whole tray, I decided to make my own personal brownie in a mug!

Looking through my kitchen cupboards, I grabbed whatever I could find that would help me create a brownie-like treat, and after testing it a couple of times after (and eating it too 😉) is how this recipe came to be.

This no-fuss chocolatey brownie takes no more than 5 minutes to make, and all it uses is a mug and a measuring spoon.

How’s THAT for an easy dessert?

4 Ingredient Protein Ball Recipe

These guilt-free and extra delicious protein balls contain only 4 main ingredients. They are extremely easy to make and are fully vegan and gluten free. –– The perfect snack to appease your sweet tooth!

Earlier this year I decided to do the “30-Days to Healthy Living and Beyond” challenge to reboot my health. The results I experienced were extremely positive, including: increased energy, reduced bloating, cleaner looking skin, weight loss, and overall vitality. The program allowed me to further my knowledge around food sensitivities, as well as identify foods that were not serving my body. Since then, I have been able to maintain healthy and balanced food habits, allowing me to be the healthiest I have been in years.

The program focuses on temporarily eliminating certain foods from your diet, and teaches you how to replace them with healthier alternatives. For me, the hardest part of the challenge was learning to eliminate sugars. Anyone who knows me well knows I have a HUGE sweet tooth, and I do love featuring vegan desserts on my Instagram regularly; but the challenge allowed me to get creative with my recipes and develop a healthier alternative that would relieve my sugar craving without getting off track… and so the protein ball recipe was created!
