Baked sweet potato with cinnamon- peanutbutter

If I was forced to make a list of my top 5 most favorite foods, I would definitiely put sweet potato and peanutbutter on it. I never thought of combining them, but they truly are a match made in heaven. Sweet potatoes are such an amazing nutritional powerhouse and they offer a host of health benefits which far exceeds the nutrional value found in regular potatoes, for example they contain twice as much fiber. Not only are these orange- skinned root vegetables one of nature’s most unsurpassed sources of betacaroteen, they are also rich in vitamin C and E. These are all important antioxidants, which help to protect healthy cells from damage caused by free radicals and to strengthen your ability to help fight infection and disease.

Starbucks walnut banana bread makeover

I spent last summer in sunny Florida with my family and of course, we went a couple of times to Starbucks. I noticed that their banana walnut bread was highly popular, but despite its name, it’s unfortunately not a very healthy treat. I decided to adapt the original recipe into a healthy, but still very delicious option without all the butter, refined sugar and wheat flour that is jammed into a single Starbucks serving. This banana bread turned out to be such a lovely, dense and moist bread, redolent with banana flavor and will win over even the non- banana lovers.
