SUE’S ALL TYPE MUNCHIE MUFFIN
For a batch of 24 medium sized muffins. The dough keeps in the fridge, and two singles cook in the microwave in 1 minute, so mix up a lot of dough. It also makes a nice cake like topping or hot pudding.
2 cups oats
1 cup millet flour
1 + ½ cups soya flour ( or mix ½ rye if preferred – makes it heavier & stickier) or use channa (yellow pea)
½ cup ground up linseed, also called flax seed. You can buy Health Connection flax meal.
½ cup brown sugar or fructose or use stevia powder as instructed.
½ cup ordinary sweet molasses or use the bitter blackstrap molasses if worried about sugar.
½ cup canola oil or olive oil. Never heat up sunflower oil, it releases harmful trans fatty acids.
1 + ½ cups water or juice or 1 cup water with a mashed up banana or other fruit pulp.
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda or potassium bicarbonate from health shop. Use ½ more for lighter effect.
½ teaspoon citric acid – from baking section in supermarket.
Mix up the dries, rub in the oil. It keeps like this, in the fridge. Add the water to make a stiff, but wet dough.
Spoon into greased muffin trays or paper cases (for microwave: they take about ½ minute- test one)
For a nice topping, sprinkle on a little brown sugar or sesame seeds. For extra effects, add nuts, dried fruit, cocoa or carob and the usual cinnamon, ginger, cloves & nutmeg. Poke in Albany chocolate pieces!
Bake in a hot oven 190 deg for 10 to 12 minutes. I usually cook rice and a casserole or hotpot at the same time. When I switch off, I dry out my fruit teas or bake up some oat granola in the cooler oven overnight.
Please print out your blood type lists and keep them handy for shopping. Chuck out all the muck from the kitchen and : never, ever, buy the wrong food again
WATER OR DIGESTIVE BISCUITS
1 cup Oats or barley or millet flour
1 cup Rye or soya flour
1 teasp bicarbonate soda, ½ teasp citric acid
Pinch salt, teaspoon of sugar. Spices, etc.
½ cup Oil (optional) ½ sesame seeds if liked
Enough water to make a plastic dough to roll out or make balls with flour & hand press out.
Bake 170 deg for 12-15 mins on greased tray
Microwave makes them too hard, so don’t.
Variation: 1 rice flour to replace rye or soya, but mix first in boiling water to soften. Add oats, etc. Try other seeds, it’s a very strong mix but sticky so add oil or flour to the hands.
NO MORE PASTA, COUSCOUS or PIZZA
1 Bad news, we are told to toast our bread till dry and really chew it well. When you gobble down vast globs of not so well cooked wheaten muck, your body cannot digest it or expel it easily, so make a plan.
Shloooping up al dente pasta is even worse, because the starch busting enzymes in the mouth cannot do their job. The body will immediately begin to gush with mucous or the intestines will clog up.
2 If you have a gluten allergy, note that rice noodles are basically the stuff they make glue out of. Try bean thread noodles, called mung bean noodles instead.
3 Wheat free pasta is freely available now, made of 100% rye or rice and rye. They still can make a lot of glue inside you, so test.
4 Ideally, you should chew your pasta, and even your allergy muffins carefully and well and not drink water or booze whilst you eat: give your saliva a chance!
5 Couscous is also made out of wheat, the good news is that millet is a tastier and far healthier substitute. Go for the dehusked millet from your health shop. It needs more cooking than couscous, so cook it like rice.
6 If you still crave pizza, learn to make a substitute.
