If I really wanted to I could abbreviate this title to F&FMIMM, but I didn’t. I’ll save you the brain space on this Monday.
Speaking of Monday, Happy Monday. Monday’s are a little different for me since I usually try to work a bit during the weekend. Come Monday I like to take a little extra time to run errands, chill, etc.
But this Monday is marvelous for more than that. This Monday is marvelous because the weekend was marvelous. No I didn’t go anywhere. We didn’t do anything super exciting. It was the little things that made it good, no…great! Thank you Katie for hosting this marvelous link up!
- We spent our first weekend in our new home (apartment).
- We finally got a washer/dryer hooked up. We have gone 5 years without having either. Lots of people let us borrow washer/dryer time, especially family!
- We finally got our DVD player to work. We don’t have cable, so popping in a movie on the weekend is nice. Good cuddle time on the couch too.
- It was under 100F all weekend, plus we got a little rain.
- We found new trails by our apartment and went exploring with this little one.
My father in law flew in for literally 30 hrs. It was a quick trip. He is on his way back to New Zealand today (the life of a pilot), but oh it was fun to catch up and eat Mexican food with these kiwi men.
|Banana Almond Coconut bread||
- 1 1/4 cup almond meal
- 1 1/4 cup coconut flour
- sea salt
- Vanilla extract (optional)
- 1 ripe banana
- 6-8 oz milk (i used almond milk)
- 2 eggs (or flax eggs to keep vegan)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1-2 tbsp nut butter
- 1/2 cup crushed dried banana chips
- 2 tbsp hemp seed (can use chia, flax, etc)
- *the only sugar here is from the banana, so if you want it extra sweet, add in honey or an additional sweetener like stevia, brown sugar, etc
- Mix all your dry ingredients together first. Then add in eggs, mix well. Then add in your milk, extract, nut butter, and banana. I used my hands here to mix and mash everything. Spray or oil a baking dish (9×13 works) with coconut oil. Press the dough down firmly into the dish. Bake at 350F for 15-18 minutes depending on your oven. Let cool, or not, just dig in!
- *Note: i added in glutamine powder (about 1-2tsp) just for extra help during digestion.
- *Note again: This bread is a good base for anything sweet or salty! That’s if you keep is sugar free. Would also be good with chocolate chips!
- And lastly, my Saturday was spent looking like this. I call this look “baker’s wings” (aka crazy hair). That’s a sign of a good day in the kitchen, am I right?
What’s your Marvelous today?
