So, you guys know that I have bought some coconut flour but have never got on that well with it. I did manage to have it in pancakes, which I quite liked, but I still prefer the buckwheat flour so tend to go to that.
At the weekend (I think) Laura posted a photo of her grain free banana bread, which included coconut flour, and it just so happened that we had 2 bananas rapidly going brown. Of course I had to make it.
Well it turned out so well! Delicious! Because of what I had at home I made a few changes- I only had 3 eggs so used those and a little almond milk, and instead of blueberries I used dark chocolate chips and desiccated coconut.
I bought myself some pretty dessert forks, plus a matching cake slice that I have not used yet.
It has been keeping me going this week! I have been so busy this week- I have only managed one run (sad face) so far this week (I was home too late for Sweatshop on Wednesday)- on Tuesday I was home early (I had a course, and they usually finish early, plus no marking= bonus time) so I went on a 5 mile run, but it was baking- after a couple of miles I had to stop in the shade and cool down as I was so hot. I am not used to this! It was making me worry about my half marathon (next weekend) but I am not going for a fast time there as it is a trail run, I am going to enjoy the experience.
Anyway, when I got home Andy had picked our first garden strawberries! So after dinner I had them with a slice of the banana bread- they were so sweet and juicy- shop bought ones just don’t compare.
I went to pump this evening and managed to up my weights for the chest (10kg on the bar! Which is a lot for me), but now my arms are not liking all this typing!
What are your weekend plans?
I need to get up early for my final long run- I did 11 miles last weekend and want to do a similar distance this week. I need to make a cake as practise for my next cake club meeting (don’t want a repeat of last time!) and also a pile of work which I just won’t think about now!
