I hope you have a lovely weekend 🙂 Lately, it has been challenging to cook and make photos – I am between places and packing everything again, and I have limited access to the kitchen most of the time. During this week, I manage to sneak a time and prepare some healthy bites with moringa.
I have tried moringa before as “latte drink”, it reminds me of matcha tea, with a bit stronger taste. I started using moringa as good natural source of vitamins and minerals and as cafeine replacement. It is always good to try something new and especially if it is nutrition rich 🙂
A little bit more about moringa: this is one of those plants that every part of the tree is editable-leaves, seeds, bark, roots, sap and flowers. Moringa is packed with many vitamins, antioxidants, essential amino acids -calcium, vitamin B, magnesium. It has been used in ancient time like energy booster and has a lot of other healthy benefits, like may help digestion, balance blood sugar, support cognitive function.
It is worth the try 🙂
Portions 10; Time to prepare 15 min
- 1 medium ripe banana
- 250 gr ground almonds
- 1 tsp. moringa
- 1 tsp flax seeds
- 1/2 tsp. bee pollen
- Mash the banana with a fork in a medium bowl.
- Add the moringa, bee pollen, flax seeds and mix well until homogenous mixture.
- Add half of the almonds and again mix well.
- Add the rest of the almonds.
- Take about one table spoon of the mixture and form bites as balls.
- Roll each one in coconut flakes.
- Place in the fridge in air-tight container.
- Enjoy as snacks or for breakfast.
! I was surprised that one banana could absorb so much almond flour. The dough is soft, not as hard as if you do with oats. The result is soft and chewy bites. I will advise you to try the moringa as a tea and see if you like it, as this is one of those ingredients with a particular taste.

Fantastic! We often boil the leaves of moringa and drink it as tea, if not mixing it with vegetable dishes. Thankfully, there’s a moringa plant growing just right outside our house!

that’s great, you have it naturally outside. I like the tea although a bit stronger taste, and I will definitely try adding moringa to some veggies 🙂
