This post is about healthy dessert, a life-changing recipe, a scientific experiment and Kanan Gill.


It’s 11:38 pm as I write this post, and I spent the last 2 hours on Kanan Gill’s YouTube Channel, then watched his advertisement (take a deep breath – he is still unmarried) and ended my Kanan-Gill-night-session with this…

So what does my obssession with Kanan Gill have to do with my Banana, Cinnamon & Oat Crumble recipe?

Nothing really. Except for this..

I carried out an experiment and also volunteered to be the subject.

As the conductor of the experiment, the hypothesis that I was trying to prove was: all videos are 75% more enjoyable, if watched while eating some of my crumble. 

To test this hypothesis, I helped myself to a portion of my popular Easy Vegan Gluten-free Dessert and watched a Kanan Gill video while devouring all the deliciousness.

Obviously, I volunteered to be the subject.

Every time I took a bite of my crumble, I would rate (and document) Kanan Gill’s sense of humour, his ‘cuteness’, his sense of style, his intelligence and his camera presence.

Since I needed to conduct the experiment methodically, I offered up the use of my noble judgement skills again, after packing away an entire portion of the crumble.

I volunteered to watch more Kanan Gill videos, this time without complementing it with a portion of my crumble. Again, I rated and documented the same variables- his sense of humour, his ‘cuteness’, his sense of style, his intelligence and his camera presence.

After analysing the data that I collected, I drew two conclusions:

1. Kanan Gill’s sex-pack abs are a figment of my imagination.

2. Kanan Gill is so much funnier, cuter, metrosexual-er, smarter and modelesque, if he is observed while the subject consumes a portion of my Banana, Cinnamon & Oat Crumble.

I was bound by the sanctity of science to share this result:

“All videos, even Kanan Gill’s, are 75% more enjoyable, if watched while eating some of my crumble.”  

So how do you make this scientifically proven, life-changing crumble?

Prep time– 10 minutes

Cooking time– 20 minutes

Serves– depending on how many videos you watch while eating the crumble

You need:

Step 1: Blend the almonds and pecans in a food processor until a nut-flour forms.

Step 2: Transfer the nut-flour into a bowl (the cuter, the better), and mix in the oats, cinnamon, coconut oil and maple syrup. Feel free to use your hands. Once your mixture is kinda sticky and delicious, move on.

Step 3: Oil up your baking dish and then slice in the bananas. Mush the banana slices together (again, I used my hands) or layer them if you’re feeling fancy. Cinnamon up the bananas, if you’re feeling the heat (I did). #NewAdjectiveAlert

Step 3.5: Preheat your oven.

Step 4: Add the sticky-delicious crumble mixture over the bananas and spread evenly.

Step 5: Bake the crumble at 180 Degrees Celsius for approximately 20 minutes. You’ll know it’s ready when your kitchen smells like heaven (and when the crumble starts turning golden-brown).

Step 6: Stare at it while it cools

Step 7: Devour

Step 8: Find a secret spot in your refrigerator to stack some away for breakfast.

P.S: This deliciously healthy vegan, gluten-free dessert, is high in fiber, protein, minerals such as potassium and good-fats. It’s also very high in yumminess and happiness.
