Banana Pumpkin Muffins

1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1 1/2 ripe banana, mushed
3/4 cup maple syrup
4 eggs OR 3 TBS flax meal mixed with 3/4 hot water - whisk, set in fridge 10 minutes
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cream of tarter
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves
Teff flour and
millet flour in about a 1:3 ratio (no I didn't measure - just make it to be like muffin mix consistency)

Combine wet ingredients, beat to combine.  Add flours a little at a time until desired consistency is achieved (thick, but pour easily). add the rest of the dry ingredients.  Beat to combine.  Pour into greased muffin tins.  Bake 350 for 35 minutes.  Makes about 12 muffins.

Sweet and Sour Chicken Allergy Friendly

Stumbled on this online somewhere.  Pretty good.  Not amazing, but easy!  Could use pork also.  I actually think this would taste better using dark meat.

Sweet and Sour Chicken Allergy Friendly

2 TBS Ketchup
1/2 cup white vinegar
1 TBS coconut aminos (or soy sauce)
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup water
1 1/2LBS chicken cubed
2TBS cornstarch/2TBS cold water OR 2tsp arrowroot powder/2ts water

Whisk to combine first 5 ingredients in a 4-6qt crockpot.  Add chicken.  Cook on low 6-8 hours or high 4-5.  With a slotted spoon, remove chicken.  Whisk in cornstarch or arrowroot powder mixtures.  Cook on high 15-20 minutes to thicken.  Put chicken back in.  Serve over rice with steamed broccoli.
