Even though it’s been happening around the 15th of every month since March, it still catches me by surprise. The doorbell rings, I rush to see who it is, and find a box. A box beautifully packaged and full of something delicious: fruit. Yes, Ed and I are members of the Harry & David Fruit-of-the-Month Club, thanks to a very generous wedding gift from our friends Ben and Abby!
1 ½ cups steel cut oats, ground to a flour in food processor (1 ½ cups any type of oats, unground is fine too)
1 tsp grated ginger (can leave out if you don’t have it)
½ tsp baking soda
A few dashes of sea salt
1 ripe banana
1 cup pureed fresh pumpkin (canned works well too)
1 tbsp unsulphured blackstrap molasses (1 tbsp raw honey)
¼ cup milk
Add wet ingredients to dry and mix well. If batter is too dry or too wet, adjust with milk or flour accordingly.
2. It’s funny. Very, very funny.
3. It will make you buzz over to your local market to buy the freshest raw honey available.
I am very excited about Monday’s guest blogger and you should be too. I promise she won’t let you down!
