Love is these #icecream sandwiches from Milo and Hector’s!

Had a tasting event before this weekends #EatDXB event and these ice-cream sandwiches really were the best thing that’s happened to me all day.

If you’re there this weekend, DO NOT miss her salted peanut and chocolate ice cream sandwich–that’s an order! 😙 you won’t regret it, I promise.

Healthy, gooey protein brownies

Today I’ve got another easy, quick and healthy dessert recipe for you brewing right now in the Straight-up Bananas HQ.

I know what you’re thinking. Is she posting yet ANOTHER brownie recipe? My answer to you is ‘yes, God damnit’! I do what I want. And I want brownies in and around my mouth so shush!

This recipe is awesome because it’s not only gluten free, dairy free and sugar free, but also jam-packed with protein and fiber! Perfect for those who like to bulk up on protein (like the mister). This magic ingredient here is that I’m using black-eyed peas to keep the brownies moist since I’ll be using almond and oat flour instead of traditional flour. At this point, I know you think I’ve gone completely bananas, but you’ve got nothing to lose! Go Straight-up Bananas with me and give it a try!


So here’s what you’ll need:

  1. 1 can of organic black-eyed peas
  2. ½ cup of melted organic coconut oil
  3. ½ cup of honey or maple syrup
  4. 2 eggs
  5. 1 tsp vanilla
  6. sea salt
  7. ¼ cup of melted dark chocolate
  8. ½ cup of oat flour
  9. ½ cup of almond flour
  10. ¼ cup of organic cocoa powder
  11. ½ tsp of baking powder 
  12. ½ cup of organic chocolate chips

Here’s how it’s done, son:

First, place the black-eyed peas, coconut oil, honey, eggs, vanilla and sea salt in a blender and blitz until very smooth (No lumps)

Then, sift together the oat flour, baking powder, cocoa powder and almond flour together and mix with the wet mixture until well incorporated.

Then, mix in the melted chocolate.

Place in a baking tray and top with chocolate chips.

Bake for 20-30 minutes (until the mixture has juuuuust set but is still a bit gooey in the centre.

Let cool and then cut up into cubes.

Voila! There you’ve got it! Easy, healthy chocolate chip brownies that are not only good for your body but absolutely delicious!

Go Straight-up Bananas and give them a try. THEN, follow me on Instagram please by clicking here.

How could everything in this place be so beautiful? Morocco took me in 10 months ago and I’ve just wanted to be back ever since.

Words could never explain just how delicious this dish was!

A mushroom and freekeh risotto topped with juicy boasted chicken spiced with plenty of Palestinian zaatar, garlic and black pepper.

Oh. Dear. Lawdy.

I’ve got a love-love relationship with fresh dill. Unfortunately, supermarkets in Dubai tend to sell fennel leaves mascarading as dill.

This here glorious salad is shaved cucumber, pickled red onion and lots of fresh dill. #sogood
