…bake muffins! Does anyone else get excited when they see a super ripe banana sitting on their counter? For me, ripe bananas automatically mean 1) banana bread or 2) muffins.
Before I got into baking mode, I made PANCAKES. (I know, I’m really going to town on the cooking. Since I can’t run, I have lots of free time to fill, okay?) I wanted a recipe that used oat flour and I sure did happen upon a good one. GF flours often give pancakes a weird texture or make them super dense so I was hoping that oat flour would work better…and it sure did! Just look at these beautiful pancakes. 🙂
I topped mine with jam and had raspberries on the side…
…and my mom made the cutest little ricotta cheese and raspberry shortcakes with hers!
No funky flavor, no funky texture. Win-win. Looks like I found a new go-to GF pancake recipe! 🙂
After breakfast, it was time to get a workout in. Today, it was upper body on the Total Gym + 30 minutes elliptical + NTC legs. I’m sure I’ll be feeling the DOMS in a couple days from that one! And of course, I did my PT exercises, which kick my butt every time. Why is getting back to running so difficult?! So close yet so far…
Then, finally, it was muffin time! I have made these almond butter chocolate chip muffins before and liked them a lot so why mess with a good thing? Again, they turned out moist and chocolate-y and delicious. 🙂
Sadly, it was time to get back to reality after my morning spent in baking-land…all of my college shtuff cluttered in my bedroom was calling to me to be cleaned up. Not fun, but I got it done and I can finally see my floor again! No longer is getting from my door to my bed an acrobatic affair. 😀
Hope everyone had a great BEST DAY OF THE WEEK! 🙂
What do you do with overripe bananas? Bananaaaaa bread!
