Anyway, life has been incredibly busy, with exciting new things constantly popping up. One, not so exciting thing, has been the state of my health. Went to the doc, and all the standard tests say 'normal'. You would think that would be a good thing, right? Yes, it most definitely is, but why have I gained so much weight? Why do I now have rosacea and psoriasis? In my attempt to discover the truth, research has suggested that my whole wheat bread baking may be a cause. What?!!! Have to tell ya, I was not happy about that statement, and have been kicking the wall in denial. Unfortunately, what happened is that I just quit making bread. Does that mean my family quit eating it? Nope. Means that now my hubs was buying store bread. Yes, there are some delicious breads out there, but I don't think they are as healthy as what I was making.
Therefore, my family suffered as well. My youngest has been having stomach issues lately, and we are trying to figure out why.
So I made some Oat Banana Bread today!!! Yes, I have oat groats. I ground them, mixed up the bread, tossed it in the oven. Since I was already baking, and the oven was hot, I also ground up some Red Wheat, and made the rest of the fam banana muffins with chocolate chips. Yeah, they are both awesome!
Not sure if it is because the oat flour is less dense than wheat, but it didn't rise like my normal banana bread. But it was super yummy, and, since I was out of eggs, I also used flax seed, so double nutritious!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!! Blessings, Shirley
