A Serious Case Of Fall Mouth

Gabrielle and I discovered we have a serious case of fall mouth these days. Fall mouth, ladies and gentleman is the need for all things pumpkin in your mouth at all times. This fall mouth comes on especially in the months of October and November. Pumpkin spice lattes, various fall breads,  pumpkin cookies, pumpkin pancakes. PUMPKIN PUMPKIN PUMPKIN.

This weekend I had fall mouth that couldn't be stopped. Fall mouth is what drove the car to the grocery store and fall mouth was the driving force behind bake city in the kitchen and way too much bread consumed in one night.

If you too are struggling with fall mouth, you can cure it with this!

Crackly Banana Bread

- 3 large ripe-to-over-ripe bananas
- 1 large egg
- 1/3 cup light brown sugar
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/3 cup virgin coconut oil warmed until it liquifies
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/3 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg
- pinch of ground cloves
- 1 1/2 cup flour
- 1/4 cup uncooked quinoa or millet (found at your local health food store)

Making the Magic:

- Mash bananas until smooth
- whisk in eggs, then oil, brown sugar, syrup, and vanilla extract
- sprinkle baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves over mixture and stir until combined. Stir in flour until just combined, then millet/quinoa.
