Oatmeal Banana Muffins

These just sound disgusting to Mr. WSBF because he's not a huge fan of oatmeal and actively despises bananas. But I LOVE them! And I was so skeptical because they use no flour and so few ingredients I thought for sure they'd be boring. But they're so not. And they're so easy!

2 bananas (preferably very ripe)
2 1/2 cups oatmeal
1/2 cup sugar (this could easily be reduced)
1/3 cup apple sauce
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda

Mix all of the ingredients together and scoop into cupcake papers. I usually fill them pretty full because I like overflowing cupcakes and muffins, but you're supposed to fill them 2/3 of the way.

Bake for 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees. My toothpick came out perfectly clean after around 18 minutes.

Let them cool a tad and enjoy!

I'm so happy to have found an easy to make, healthy, gluten-free breakfast recipe. Two of these kept me from thinking about food until lunch. OK, that's a lie. I'm never not thinking about food... But I was satisfied.

Total Cost: ~$3 (makes 12-15)
Total Time: 20-25 minutes

 No no...not the Kevin Smith movie of the same name. The Beer. It's a rare post from Mr. WeShouldBeFat

Welcome to flavor country.

It seemed a bit of a shame that there hasn't been a dedicated beer post yet. I probably drink more different types of beer than I eat different kinds of food. Anywho, on to this delicious beer. You can check out its beer advocate score if you care about that sort of thing, but you can trust me when I say it's good.

There is a smooth taste throughout when drinking this stuff. Pour it into a glass to get the full experience. Dogma has a great mix of smells that waft over you as you drink it. To put it in *non fancy beer* terms, it smells like nature. You'll get a faint honey taste at the start and a smooth hoppiness through to the finish. I was worried that all the ingredients would lead to a flavor that was overwhelming; I was pleasantly surprised to find that I was only whelmed by its flavor instead.

Don't tell Ballast Point I used their glass...

This is one of the better beers I've tried. Lately there seems to be a trend of beers trying to smack you in the face with hops. Dogma let's you enjoy its hops alongside a spicy, earthy taste that will prove a pleasant experience.

I totally don't remember what I was eating while I drank this... it was probably our Nachos. I'll let the lady correct me below if I'm wrong on that one.
