No Sugar Dates Banana Cake | Eggless Whole Wheat Banana Walnut Dates Cake – Cooker Cake | No Egg, No Butter, No All Purpose Flour, No Refined Sugar

Ripe bananas, dates, and milk give this no sugar tea time cake its tender, moist crumb and delicious, natural sweetness. Toasted sesame, flax seeds add an extra crunch and texture. Soft and moist eggless Whole Wheat Dates Banana Tea Time Cake is a perfect partner with a hot cup of tea.

No Sugar Dates Banana Cake

Mix up your baking game by baking with dates. Yes, Dates are the best natural sweetener because they are loaded with fiber and essential minerals, like calcium and iron. Dates are a sweet and nourishing food from the dates palm tree, it is also known as “khajoor” in India, “tawarikh” in Arabic, “daibino” in Nigeria, and “palmier” in French.

Dates

Dates are mostly consumed in the middle east as part of their staple diet because of the high nutritional values. A fresh date is a drupe fruit with a fleshy outer part surrounded with a shell of hardened endocarp, consisting of seed inside. They are cylindrically oval with fleshy pericarp and varies in color, from bright red to bright yellow and brown when dried. I love to use dates not only in baking but in making chutneys or dip, sweets, my favorite no sugar filling for gujiya.

I bake with whole-wheat flour as much as possible. It has almost four times more fiber than all-purpose flour and provides more potassium, magnesium, and zinc. Baking is a science-not all baked goods are ideal candidates for whole-wheat, but if you experiment, you’ll find many recipes just as delicious with whole-wheat flour. I have been baking from the last 9 years with whole wheat flour. Each time results are awesome and delicious.

Eggless Whole Wheat Banana Walnut Dates Cake

Whole-wheat flour, as implied, is made up of the whole wheat kernel—endosperm, bran, and germ. Because of this, it has a higher protein content than all-purpose (up to 15 percent), as well as more fiber, nutrients, and flavor. Because the bran and germ get in the way of gluten formation, whole-wheat flour has a bad rap for making baked goods dense and stodgy.

Janmashtami Parshad | Dhania Atta Panjiri | Banana Panjiri Prasad

Janmashtami fasting is incomplete without offering sweet prashad or bhog. Dhaniya panjiri is a traditional bhog or parshad recipe that is offered to Lord Krishna, especially on Janmashtami. The coriander panjiri recipe is prepared with powdered coriander seeds and roasted makhana with sugar and lots of dry fruits added to it.

Dhania Atta Panjiri | Banana Panjiri Prasad

The aroma of the coriander powder and green cardamom powder, with the sweetness of the sugar and crunchiness of the dry fruits, make it a perfect dish to those who fast on Janmashtami. On the Janmashtami day, this prasad is offered to Lord Krishna after prayers and distributed among the family as prasad.

Dhania Atta Panjiri

I grew up in Chandigarh. So,Panjiri is in my blood :). My mom used to make panjiri with wheat flour, little Rava, lots of ghee, sugar or jaggery, was heavily laced with dried fruits and herbal gums. She always adds one banana with one bowl of panjiri. It used to our (Me & My brother) evening snack with a glass of milk.

Banana Panjiri Prasad

Janmashtami Prasad | Dhania Atta Panjiri | Banana Panjiri Prasad

During Janmashtami, wheat flour is replaced with coriander seed powder to offer to God. The wheat flour panjiri is replaced because consuming grains are generally not allowed during fasting.

Janmashtami Sweet Dish | Malpua Served With Kheer | Banana Malpua with Whole Wheat & Oats Flour | Pan Fried Malpua

Janmashtami is a widely celebrated festival by the devotees of Lord Krishna. Janmashtami falls on 11th August this year. It is said the Hindu God – Lord Krishna was born on this auspicious day. The festival is celebrated all over India with great enthusiasm and devotion. According to scriptures, Lord Krishna was the eighth incarnation of Lord Vishnu. It was prophesied that Lord Krishna would kill his uncle Kansa and rid Mathura of his cruelties. Krishna also played an instrumental role in the epic battle of Mahabharata and helped Pandavas win the war against their brothers Kauravas.

Janmashtami Sweet Dish

On this day people buy new clothes, ornaments for Lord Krishna, and also prepare a feast of 56 dishes or ‘chappan bhog’ to offer to the god. This bhog usually comprises dishes and desserts which are believed to be Krishna’s favourite, and include makha, malpua, jalebi, rabri, khichdi, and many more.

Malpua Served With Kheer

I still remember back in India, we used to visit the temple on the eve of Janmashtami and enjoy the beautiful recreation of Lord Krishna Jhakis. The temple crowded with thousands of devotees of all age groups, who come to seek God’s blessings.

Beautiful Krishna Mukut

When Reyansh, my kid was 1 year old we were at my mom’s place on Janmashtami so dressing up like “Kanha” was mandatory. It was his first Janmashtami (2011). Looking into his small golden mukut now it amazes me how kids grow so fast. My mom is a great cook and she made malpua, kheer (makhana kheer), and Lord Krishna’s favorite (and Reyansh’s too) – Makhan (White Butter). We grew up eating white butter with parathas and my son also loves it.

Here in the Netherlands, we want Reyansh to know about our culture and festivals. So we always try to celebrate all Indian festivals.

For me, the celebration is incomplete without yummy food, especially CAKES. Last week on Raksha Bandhan, I baked Special Raksha Bandhan Cake for my brother and my cousins and missed them all. On eve of Krishna Janmashtami, I made Malpua with banana, whole wheat flour, oats flour with little rava, and served with  Custard kheer and Rooh Afza Kheer. 

Yummy Festival Plate

Malpua is a traditional North Indian sweet of soft, fluffy and crisp pancakes coated with sugar syrup and served with kheer or rabri. Malpuas are made with maida or all purpose flour, semolina, milk. There are so many varieties of malpuas available like mawa malpua, apple malpua, paneer malpuas, also malpuas are flavored with cardamom and fennel seeds (sounf).

Healthy Malpua

Janmashtami Sweet Dish | Banana Malpua with Whole Wheat & Oats Flour

Eating healthy during festivals takes real effort. I always try recipes that can be prepared with alternative healthy ingredients. So in this Malpua recipe, I replaced all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour and oats flour. Instead of dipping malpua in the sugar syrup, while making batter I added ripe banana to make malpua a little sweet and soft. Add on bonus, this soft malpua are pan-fried with little oil.

Overripe bananas are the best for baking. Bananas are so good for you, they are naturally sweet and rich in potassium, which plays an important role decreasing the risk of high blood pressure and stroke.

Peanut Butter and banana are a classic combination, and with good reason. Not only do their flavors compliment each other well, they also have some potential health benefits. Peanut butter is a good source of monounsaturated fats, antioxidants, as well as nutrients like magnesium, folate, and vitamin E.

Peanut Butter Banana Cake

Making your own peanut butter is super easy. It takes a few minutes to transform whole peanuts into warm and creamy, delicious homemade peanut butter. Place roasted and skin removed peanuts in a food processor. Turn the food processor on and let it run for 4-5 minutes. Roasted peanuts will go from crumbs to a dry ball to a smooth and creamy liquid Peanut Butter. Stir in the brown sugar, honey, or salt, if you want.

HOW TO BAKE THE CAKE IN KADAI (WOK)

In a heavy bottom kadai add a cup of salt or sand. Place a steel stand in a wok. Cover and preheat the kadai on high heat for about 8 minutes. (Adding salt at the bottom ensures that the kadai doesn’t burn. Heavy bottom kadai acts as oven and ensures even cooking from all sides). I never used salt in my baking because I use a heavy bottom kadai (Prestige Brand) and I am baking for the past 2 years in the same kadai. It works perfectly fine. But, it depends on the brand, quality of the kadai.

After 8 minutes, lower the heat and put baking tin in a kadai. Cover a lid and bake bread for 60 minutes. After 60 minutes check cake with a knife, if the mixture does not stick, it means the bread is done. If batter still sticks to knife then again bread for another 10 minutes.

Banana Blueberry Smoothie | Blueberry Yogurt Smoothie

Banana blueberry smoothie packs a punch of energy and it’s so refreshing with full of antioxidants. You just need few ingredients for this amazing creamy smoothie – a banana, fresh blueberries, milk, yogurt, and a perfect smoothie is ready. The cool bluish purple color of blueberries are an excellent source of vitamin C, which helps protect cells against damage and aids in the absorption of iron.

Blueberry

Whereas, bananas are also a good source of B vitamins, which play a role in cell metabolism. Banana is a great base flavor for any smoothie and will give you a lovely creamy texture.

Fruit Smoothie

Seeds are super high in essential fatty acids, including omega-3, and high in anti-oxidants. They blend easily into your smoothies, without changing the flavor or texture too much. While there are many seeds you could add to your smoothie, but these four are my favorite – flax seeds, sesame seeds, roasted pumpkin seeds, roasted melon seeds. I always buy them in a bulk and then slightly roast flax and sesame seeds. Then mix them together in a jar (1/2 cup each seed). Just add 1 tbsp of mix seeds in your smoothie or sprinkle on salad.

Mix Roasted Seeds

Ingredients:

Banana- 1 Big
Fresh blueberries – 1 cup
