We sure do love cinnamon rolls (who doesn’t?). But the way they’re typically made (i.e. FULL of sugar!) they resemble dessert much more than breakfast…
whole-wheat pastry flour
Every December I get together with my closest group of mom-friends (which originally started as a playgroup over a decade ago!) for a holiday cookie exchange party. This year I took these Whole-Wheat Ginger Snaps.
If you’re a fan of fall flavors, then you’ll love these Whole-Grain Pumpkin-Spiced Waffles! And if you have a electric donut maker, this same batter works in there, too.
I think this might be a dangerous new recipe to have on hand because these whole-wheat madeleines are so good and so easy! We shared some with a good friend, and she couldn’t believe they’d been made with whole-wheat flour because they were so light and tasty.
I knew this recipe for Cream Biscuits was a hit when my daughter kept saying to me, “Why are these so good?” You gotta love a win like that in the kitchen! And not only are they good, but they are SO incredibly easy to make.
This is very out of character for me, but today I am posting a dessert recipe made with sugar! Yes, regular ol’ white (and brown) sugar. And here’s the reason why. We wholeheartedly agree that junk food is okay in moderation, but as I’ve said before I think junk food can be broken down into two very different categories… Traditional Junk Food vs. Artificial Factory-Made Junk Food Now if you are a real food junkie like me, and you get a hankering for something sweet, I would much rather you eat something like these homemade cookies as opposed to a bag of Chips Ahoy. Not only would this homemade version taste a great deal better, but they would also be better for you due to the following reasons: They are made with mostly whole-wheat flour. They don’t contain high-fructose corn syrup or artificial additives. They can be made with organic ingredients. Another reason I am posting this recipe is because some who just recently switched to “real food” may not have a good recipe in their files for homemade cookies and cakes. Before our family’s drastic transformation to real food I used to solely rely on Betty Crocker boxed cake mixes for birthday celebrations. When it came time to celebrate the first birthday after our “100 Days of Real Food” pledge I was at a loss for making a homemade cake from scratch. So this cookie recipe will be the first of a (very small!) series for those of us that want to occasionally indulge in something extra special without having to rely on mass produced food. So just to be clear this is one of the few recipes on this blog that would not be “approved” during the “10 Days of Real Food” pledge, but this could also be […]
