So it starts! By popular demand (ok really just my mom) I am starting this food blog. I have loved to cook since I can remember and have always tried to eat healthy. Many people think that eating healthy is boring and overwhelming. This is why you are reading my blog, because I want you to find that it can be yummy, satisfying, and simple... okay sometimes it requires some planning and work, but all good things do. FYI, the food Critic I refer to is my great Husband who will try everything I make.

Banana Spelt Muffins

Spelt defined: Fewer calories than wheat, not genetically altered like wheat, more protein than wheat, more B complex vitamins than wheat, High water solubility - so nutrients are easily absorbed by the body, and easier to digest than wheat. It is a sweet flour and has a slight nutty taste to it. It is a great replacement for wheat four.

FYI: I really don't hate wheat I just think we eat TOO much of it. And it doesn't agree with me so I try not to bake with it.

3 large over ripe bananas
1 c spelt flour
1 c rolled oats
1 1/2 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1/3 c raw sugar (not processed)
1/3 c coconut oil
1 T chia seeds soaked in 3 T water
1/4 c light sour cream or 2 T potato starch (it adds moisture)
2 T almond milk
1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven 375F

-Mash bananas with fork then mix with oil, sugar, vanilla, soaked chia seeds, almond milk and light sour cream.
