Banana Maple Oats Smoothie * 1/4 cup rolled oats, 6 ounces whole milk, 1 small frozen banana, 1/4 cup vanilla Greek yogurt, 2 tsp maple syrup * Combine all ingredients in a blender- blend until smooth.
Pumpkin Bread * 1 1/2 cups sugar, 1 cup canned pumpkin puree, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup vegetable oil (I’ve used almond oil, too!), 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, 1 tsp. baking soda, 1/2 tsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg * Preheat an oven to 350°F. Grease a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan or spray with nonstick cooking spray. In a bowl, whisk together the sugar, pumpkin puree, eggs and oil until smooth, about 1 minute. In another bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add the flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture and beat until smooth and well combined, 1 to 2 minutes. The batter will be thick. Do not over-mix. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan. Bake until the top is browned and crusty and develops a long center crack, 60 to 70 minutes. A toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf should come out clean. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let cool for 10 minutes. Un-mold the loaf onto the rack and let cool completely.
Hummus Burgers (c/o @ourdailybit on Instagram) * 20oz lean ground turkey, 1 tbsp fresh parsley, 2 tsp ground coriander, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper, 7oz red pepper hummus, 1/4 cup olive oil – divided * Mix turkey, hummus, parsley, and coriander, form into 6 patties. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add in 2 tbsp olive oil to the pan, and add the patties- cook for 3 minutes on each side. To serve – spread small amount of hummus on both sides of the hamburger bun. Top with tomato and cucumber slices.
