Coconut Tofu Keema
Left out some of the tomato sauce (2C) and hot sauce sense some people in my house don't like spice. It was great. I served it with both a side of naan and brown rice.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread
I used whole wheat and bean four because that's what I had and it still turned out super yummy! My husband nor his brother had any idea I used bean four and they thought this bread recipe was the best I've made yet. I would definitely make it again. Oh and I cut back a bit on the sugar and used brown instead of white. Very moist

Blueberry Muffins on Steroids
These were very healthy, hearty and yummy. Nest time I might add a little more sweetener in them, although these were great with a little butter and honey. The only changes I did was use greek yogurt (that's what I had) and replaced one cup of the hot cereal with a mixture of almond meal, millet, bean flour and flax. I doubled the batch so it didn't make that much of a difference I just wanted to use up some ingredients. My one year old son enjoyed these too!
