I made another batch of banana nut bread muffin-y thingies today. Instead of using sugar I pulverized some Granny Smith apples and put those into the mixture. This time it came out dense and very chewy but still pretty good even if it doesn’t resemble bread at all.
I found a recipe for a sugar free vegan carrot cake and cream cheese frosting that I think I’ll make tomorrow. The only way I will get better at baking is by actually baking. Isn’t that how that works? Practice makes perfect or whatever.
I would like to clarify that I am not vegan. I eat meat and dairy and I enjoy it however I don’t eat a lot of meat – JuJu and I eat chicken (I totally started typing ‘children’) almost every night if we eat any meat at all. Or fish. Only I’m not great at cooking fish. It is what it is. Anyway, I prefer vegan recipes because it generally makes the recipe a little healthier and it’s easier for me to swap out the ingredients that we shouldn’t be eating – like sugar. Adult-onset diabetes runs in my family so I need to make some changes now before it’s too late. It makes perfect sense to do it now since JuJu and I are eating healthier these days. We really are! I don’t feel like I’ve lost any weight yet but it isn’t about that (YES IT IS).
