Post-Workout Smoothie Bowl

Hi friends!

I have a quick recipe I shared on Instagram a few weeks ago and I absolutely love. It’s so simple and it’s a great post workout meal if you don’t want something too heavy. Oh, and this is also a great option for a light and nutritious vegan breakfast.

Gluten & Oil Free Vegan Chocolate Donuts


Sorry for my lack of posts lately, life is very busy now and it’s getting harder to keep up with the blog. If you want to see more daily posts from Gastrawnomica you can follow me on Instagram and Facebook! Where I post pretty much everyday.

Also, in other news, my Youtube Channel now has new spanish recipe videos (yaaay) and I’ll be posting the recipe in english soon here.


Now, back to the donuts. These goodies are a little experiment I did a few weeks ago, I was feeling like baking and my family has been complaining because I don’t have time to make them vegan desserts anymore, so I knew it was the perfect opportunity.

I still can’t believe the recipe worked so well, and they literally dissappeared. Literally.


Gastrawnomica’s Vegan Chocolate Donuts (Gluten & Oil Free)

1 cup + 2 full tsp gluten free flour blend

3/4 cup coconut sugar

1 Tbsp coconut butter, soft

3 Tbsp coconut flour + water 

1/4 cup cacao powder

1/2 tsp each baking soda & baking powder

1 cup almond milk

Preheat oven at 180ºC.


First mix all dry ingredients in a big bowl and set aside. In another small bowl, mix together coconut flour and add room temperature water, adding as much as needed until you have a thick paste (around 1/2 cup water).

Add coconut butter, milk, and coconut flour mixture to the dry ingredients and start mixing everything by hand until well combined, and it resembles a cake mixture.


Put mixture over silicon donut molds or grease a non-silicon donut mold if you don’t have one. Spoon 2-3 Tbsp of mixture (depending how big your mold is) on each space and bake for 30-45 minutes, until a baking tester comes out clean.

Once chilled, I topped my donuts with coconut butter and Justin’s chocolate butter (which is basically a vegan version of nutella) and added hemp seeds, pieces of brown rice cakes, coconut sugar and shredded coconut on top, but feel free to add anything you love.


These goodies will last around a week if kept on the fridge, though they are so delicious they’ll be gone in just a couple of days!

Let me know what you think, if you like them and how it goes!  Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram because I post tons of recipes there that never get to the blog.

Have a lovely week.

Preheat oven at 180ºC.

Mix all dry ingredients in a big bowl. Add milk and bananas and mix again, until well incorporated. Add nuts, prunes and dates.  

I used a 6 mini-loaf silicon mold, but if you don’t have one, lightly oil a loaf pan with coconut oil and incorporate the bread mixture. Bake for 30-35 min, check with a baking toothpick if the bread is ready after 30 minutes, it should come out clean. If not bake for a few more minutes and let it cool down before serving. 

Remove from mold and serve with melted coconut butter, totally recommended! The best combo.

Gastrawnomica’s Raw (or baked) Quinoa Granola

Makes around 1 cup of granola

1/2 cup sprouted red quinoa

2 Tbsp dry shredded (unsweetened) coconut

1/4 cup chopped nuts of choice (I used almonds, cashews and pecans)

3 dates, chopped

2 Tbsp raisins

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 cup date paste (honey or maple syrup can be used)

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl until everything is evenly mixed and the fruit, quinoa and nuts are coated with date paste and vanilla. Bring mixture to dehydrator at highest temperature and dehydrate overnight or until the granola is dry.

Alternately, you can bake at 160ºC for around 30 minutes until crispy and dry. I served my granola with coconut yogurt, bananas and a pinch of cinnamon. It was delicious! 

Enjoy and let me know what you think!

3-Day Liquid Cleanse: DAY 3

Hi friends, here are the recipes for the last day of the cleanse. Overall I felt really good and energized, I worked out during the 3 days but nothing very intense.

My skin had an amazing impact. I didn’t have pimples or anything like that before the cleanse, but by the 3rd day my skin was really glowing and everyone noticed it looked super clear and really beautiful. I felt light and had good digestion during the 3 days. Remember that if you do the cleanse, you should drink coconut water all day, in between your large smoothies/juices or lemon-water. You can alternate both drinks during the day. 

The drinks for DAY 3 are / Bebidas del día 3:
