Recipe: Slow Cooker High Protein Banana Bread


Smells good and does not heat up your kitchen!

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup melted butter (you may gently melt in microwave for 15-20 seconds)
  • 3 medium to large eggs ( I used from an XL, 700 min. egg cart)
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter ( I used dark, smooth, sugarless, 99.5% peanut butter and .5% salt by Mayvers)
  • 1/2 cup flour of your choice ( organic, plain unbleached white, coconut flour) ( I used plain AP flour)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • sweetener is optional ( you may use 1/4 to 1/2  cup chocolate chips or some honey) (I did not put any sweetener)
  • 1 tbs cinnamon
  • 4 medium to large bananas
  • 1 tsp vanilla or zest of a lemon if you like

Easy steps:
  1. Blend: butter, peanut butter, cinnamon, vanilla, eggs, and optional honey. (if using chips, add in with flour)
  2. Mix in flour, baking powder, baking soda.
  3. Blend.
  4. Place in non-stick or lightly greased loaf pan. ( mine here has an actual loaf yield of about 8 in. by 4.1/4 in - i.e. actual loaf size not pan size)
  5. Bake in slow cooker on high for 2 to 2.5 hours. I want mine moist and soft so next time I'll stop at 2 hours. The photo above was taken out at 2.15 hours. browned a bit on the sides but still soft.
Note:
  1. Remember to put kitchen towel liners on top before putting on the lid. Secure well so they don't fall in.
  2. Slow cooker wattage differ. You may need to check for doneness in 2 hours. 
  3. If you won't put any sweetener like I do, you may lightly spread some honey or syrup on top of a slice.

Container Gardening: Planting KangKong in Pots (Water Spinach)

Kang kong is a well-known leafy vegetable used in many Philippine dishes. It is quite easy to grow they say. There was a time when you can find kangkong patches on most streets in the neighborhood. It is also called water spinach or swamp cabbage. It thrives in wet, moist areas. Many grow it solely in water. It quickly grows under sunny spots but carers should keep the soil moist. Else, it may die. Some tips: Not much intstructions on planting. Just bury the seed and keep the soil moist or muddy.  Kangkong grows all year round. Cut maybe an inch or two above the soil for continued regrowth and harvesting. Winter may see your plant dying but often, it regrows by spring. You may fertilize with nitrogen twice a month. You may harvest whole plants at about 1 to 2 months. Kangkong has the tendency to spread. Grow in a container for easy maintenance or harvest whole plants to control your supply. It is best to use potting soil for your containers. Putting regular soil in restric

Bullmastiff: All Wrinkly and Sweet Giant

We have this pet bullmastiff and I’m sure I don’t uniquely feel this way; like other dog owners, I feel our Simba is one of a kind. He has his ways, quirks and all that, which gives him this distinct identity and character. We named him Simba, which means “Lion”. He was an ugly pup. I almost wanted to back out from purchasing him at the kennel. He didn’t look like a regular bullmastiff, no wrinkles, no large frame. He was thin, lean, and all straight and flat. Characteristic of normal Bullmastiffs , he was guarded at first, a bit aloof and doubtful of people and surroundings. It took him over two months to feel more at ease in our home, to freely walk around without being easily spooked, and to trustingly accept our spontaneous pats on his forehead. He wasn’t affectionate for a long time. You would have to initiate physical contact. Many times when we called, he wouldn’t come. And when we approached him, he would move somewhere else. The Bullmastiff is one dog breed you woul

What Does Romans 8:28 Mean About All Things Work Together For Good?

All things work together for good Romans 8:28 is a well-known verse that Christians usually memorize or list down under "God's Promises." It says, "We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God:  those who are called according to His purpose." Is this really a promise from God? Is this a sure promise that we can claim? Is Romans 8:28 true? Or is the Bible lying in this particular verse? Because, by experience, people know that NOT all things turn out good in the end. So, what exactly does this Scripture mean? And is it for everyone? Let's take a closer look at Romans 8:28 and understand what the verse is actually telling us today.
