Banana-oatmeal-oat bran-yogurt cake. Lightly sweetened with raw honey.
I may have to bake more of this and freeze them, and have them for breakfast (or for the occasional snack time).

Spicy Crispy Lemongrass Tofu
I like to score the tofu, so that the flavor can get inside too. Some people like to deep fry this, but I found that the lemongrass would fall off to the bottom of the pot and burn. Just a little bit of oil in the pan is fine for me, and I don't have to any waste oil either. The time consuming part is to turn them on all sides to get every surface crispy. But that's just me- I like crispness.

There were a few surprises to this cookie. For one, you might bite into a piece that has ginger, while another does not. I baked this as a very crispy biscotti-like cookie, but it turned soft after a few days. Weird! Wonder what it will be in a couple of days? Crispy again?? In any case, it was really good with a glass of milk or cup of tea.
I like using Valrhona 71% cacao dark chocolate. The 81% is a bit too bitter to leave as chunks in the cookie. Maybe next time, I will make a cardamon-pistachio-dark chocolate variety.
