So its official, I have a torn meniscus and I am having surgery. On Monday to be exact. So I’m flying to Miami on Saturday and then having surgery Monday and flying back to CO on Friday. It should be super exciting.
Instead of talking about my knee I am going to tell you guys about the banana bread I made today. It was, and is by far one of the most amazing things I’ve eaten recently.
I started with Juli Bauer’s PaleOMG recipe for banana bread which you can find HERE.
But I changed it a bit. Here’s what I used:
In a blender (Or if you are a normal person, a food processor)
1 cup raw cashews
1 cup salted roasted cashews
2 tbs vanilla infused olive oil. Ma brought this stuff back from Hawaii for me and this is the perfect use for it.
1 tbs melted coconut oil
1 cup raw unsweetened coconut flakes
In a bowl:
2 eggs, whisked
1 cup almond meal
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
cinnamon- I don’t know how much I used. 1 tsp probably
honey- 3 tbs maybe, but I’m not sure
Mix the two together and then add a container of blueberries.
Bake at 375.
I also added Progenex vanilla protein powder and a packet of almond butter to part of the batter. I wanted to see if it tasted good with protein powder and it DID. It was damn delicious.
I’d take a picture but they are all gone.
