Ahh the weekend, I have nothing planned and I like it! I been going to the gym at night on Saturdays after work and though I’m dieing getting there, I still feel good just getting a little something in. As for gym boy, he was pretty much doing circles around me yesterday and I saw him looking at me and I tried to catch him a few times but no luck, then I was filling my water and he walked by me and said “hey kaity hows it going” and kept walking, soo awkward lol. Oh well ! Speaking of awkward you know how I told I send my friends the ugliest pictures of me on snapchat. WELL, I got caught. I’m cracking up as I write this but I wash my hair once a week in the winter, I don’t know why but it just never looks bad. Once it does I’m not the type to push it another day I wash it but not the point. My one friend doesn’t understand how I could do that, so yesterday I had finally washed my hair and when it air drys I am like mufasa, no joke. So I sent her a ugly picture, with my hair looking like that and whatever. I would have dealt with accidentally sending it to someone else but no I wrote on it “this is why I don’t wash my hair ever”. Then accidentally checked this guy and sent it to him also. HAHAHA oh man. He hasn’t checked it yet it says and hopefully he don’t know even how to use snapchat but I have no idea how I’d even get out of that lol. Lesson Learned. I also deleted any guys that I’d mind seeing a picture like that from snapchat.
But onto other things. With this snowy weather we been getting and the crazy amount of bananas I had in the house I decided to make muffins. Boy do these hit the spot and make your house smell uhhh-mazing.
To spice things up, and use up some stuff that has been lurking around my pantry for what seems like years, I used millet.
Millet is a tiny grain like quinoa, but has more of a mild sweet flavor. Not only is it 15% protein, it has a ton of B vitamins, high in iron and calcium plus a ton of more essential vitamins and nutrients! It is also gluten free! I think it has a cornmeal texture when you use it which i absolutely LOVE. I sub millet for cornmeal when I make cornbread sometimes because I rarely have cornmeal in the house for some reason.
ignore my pretty nails.
Banana Millet Muffins (makes 12)
Adapted for here
- 2/3 cup millet
- 1 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour*
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 2 bananas, mashed
- 1/2 cup raw sugar
- 2 tbs coconut oil, melted (veg oil would work)
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat your oven to 375. Place your millet in a food processor or high speed blender until its a fine flour like texture (cornmeal texture!). Then mix the millet, flour, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon in a bowl. Add in the banana, oil, milk, vanilla, and sugar. Mix well! Stir in the delicious chocolate chips if using. Place in muffin holders and bake for 18-20 minutes.
*You can sub in any gluten free flour that you like to make these 100% GF!
**I threw the banana and all the wet ingredients into a blender because I’m lazy and worked well, plus the blender was already dirty from the millet so why not lol.
enjoy your weekend!
What makes me happy: my heated mattress pad. I asked for it a few christmas’ ago and my mom isn’t in to all those heat things for fire safety etc. But she started to feel bad when she saw my room was going down to 30s some nights. I’m over the garage and my front window is sort of broke, so no matter how high the heat is it’s still cold. This thing is amazing I use to be that type to love getting in a cold bed when I’m cold, yeah well because I never got into a warm bed. Best thing ever. I have been peeling myself out of bed in the mornings because I don’t want to get out. Do you like cold or warm beds?
Seriously, whats the most embarrassing thing you ever did?!
