Healthy Peanut Butter Energy Bars (No Sugar!)

Hi guys!
I’d like to share with you a recipe that I tried yesterday. Since I left Italy 2 years ago I kinda struggled to find healthy snacks. I always crave something sweet during the day while I’m at work but the snacks you find at the supermarket are so full of sugar and preservatives, they’re really not good for you.
So yesterday I did some research on how I could bake the perfect snack myself, with no sugar added! I’m a big fan of peanut butter, and I found this brand that is only peanuts, no sugar whatsoever.
So here is the recipe for these super good and healthy peanut butter, banana, oats and honey energy bars. Only 4 ingredients and really fast to make. I arrived home at 8pm after work, I was tired but it really took me 10 minutes to put the ingredients together.

250 gr (1 cup) peanut butter (I used one that contains no sugar or preservatives)
60 gr (less than 1/4 cup) honey
160 gr (2 cups) instant oats
2 ripe bananas (medium size)
You can add crushed nuts and cinnamon if you like

Mash the bananas with a fork

then add the other ingredients and mix until well combined. 

Line a pan with parchment paper and pour the mixture in, press and flatten with a spatula until evenly distributed.

Bake at 180 C (350 F) for 30 min

then cut into bars and let it cool completely. 

You can store at room temperature but I live in a very warm climate so I store in the fridge. Remember to cover them, or they’ll absorb humidity. You can also freeze them.

Enjoy your healthy snack! It's only 80 calories per bar!

Love, Fede

Night Out in Singapore

Hi everyone!
I want to share a look I wore for dinner last weekend. Here in Singapore the weather is hot all year round so light tops and skirts are essential in the wardrobe. I don't think I have ever worn pants or closed shoes since I moved here from Hong Kong LOL. Sometimes I miss the seasons, but when last winter my family in Italy was complaining about the cold I was happy to be in Singapore.
Getting adjusted here is very easy and now that I have nice groups of friends I often go out for dinner and drinks to rooftop bars and enjoy this beautiful city. This look I wore to Jim Thompson, a really nice Thai restaurant in lovely Dempsey Hill.
Have a great weekend!!! TGIF!
Love, Fede
