Yesterday I made my first spelt flour product. I did a little tweaking to a few recipes to come up with my own. Here is the final result.
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 whole egg + 1 egg white
1/2 cup organic skim milk
1/4 cup agave
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
3/4 cup spelt flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill)
3/4 cup whole wheat flour (I prefer to use King Arthur)
4 oz fresh blueberries
It tastes a little like the brown bread from a can. Do you all remember that stuff? My Nana used to serve it at family dinners all the time when I was a kid. I have not had it in years but I used to really dig the molasses flavor. My bread is very light and not too sweet. I really like the fresh blueberries but I think that a lot of them sank to the bottom. I should have tossed them in a bit of flour before adding them to the batter in order to avoid that – oh well, it is still yummy.
Today we have a full schedule. I have already been to the gym for the weekly babysitting shift and now I am just about to hit the road again to bring D to preschool orientation. After that we are going to my sis’s house for a visit. Thankfully I had just enough time to do some laundry this afternoon. I hate when the piles are HUGE.
I did fit in a little “me” time before the sun was up this morning. I did a 6.5 mile run in the great outdoors and loved every stride.
Breakfast was another bowl of dessert hummus topped oats. I added some PB2 for an extra decadent bowl. Chocolate + PB – does it get any better than that?
Sorry to make this so short but I really have to get out of here. Enjoy your day. I can’t believe it is already Wednesday. Where has the week gone?
