Banana Pecan Cake With Warm Chocolate Sauce

What can you do with the brown bananas that sit on your counter top? Think tender, sweet, banana-bread-like cake with a cruchy sugar-pecan top. Then picture warm chocolate sauce drizzled over a piece and then swoon a little as you drop a mental dollop of whipped cream on top. As decadent as this sounds, it’s pretty easy and includes a boost in nutrition from Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Pastry Flour. Whole wheat pastry flour is so finely ground that its texture is hardly noticeable in most recipes and is easy to incorporate into this banana cake without any complaints from the little ones. Repurposing over-ripe fruit + whole wheat goodness = cake that tastes great and gets more whole grains onto your plate. Sounds good to me. Read More »


Last-minute Pear Almond Whole Wheat Brownies

Rich and fudgy, fancy without being fussy, these brownies are a snap to make. Using the classic Hodgson Mill Brownie Mix with Whole Wheat Flour & Milled Flax Seed and adding cinnamony chunks of pear and crunchy slivered almonds creates a chocolaty fruity last-minute gift. The pears lighten up the finished product and add a mildly sweet and festive flavor, too. Read More »


Chai Muesli and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Half spice cookie, half oatmeal cookie … half chocolate chip cookie. (Hmm… My math is a little fuzzy.) I just love the flavor combination here! The cookie love starts when you bite into the nice, browned edges, then through a soft and chunky strata of oats, sunflower seeds, apple bits and the occasional raisin (all from Hodgson Mill Apples & More Muesli), and every once in a while, a chocolate chip surprise. Then, just when you think you’ve tasted all this cookie has to offer, the chai spices come up from behind. You can feel—as much as taste—the warm, golden flavor the chai provides, rounding out all of the flavors. Like fine wine. But a cookie. Read More »


Oatmeal Turtle Jumbles

It is a good thing I can type with my mouth full, because I can’t stop eating these oatmeal turtle jumbles. They have a buttery, brown sugar-oatmeal-whole wheat bottom, a gooey chocolate layer mixed with pecans in the middle and then more buttery, brown sugar goodness mixed with caramels on top. Need I say more? You must try these. They are calling your name. And they’re a delicious addition to your holiday cookie tray, or an easy gift for a friend or neighbor. Plus, I’m sure Santa wouldn’t mind seeing these on the plate you leave out for him on Christmas Eve. Read More »


Chocolate Gingerbread Bars

We had company for dinner the other night and I ran out of time to fix dessert. People expect dessert when they come to my house. I take it as a compliment, but sometimes it can be a stretch to squeeze it into my meal plan with all of the things going on in my family, not to mention the hustle and bustle of the upcoming holidays. So I came up with these delicious Chocolate Gingerbread Bars that start with a box of Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Gingerbread Mix. Read More »


Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

Cookies. Cookies. Cookies. We can never have enough cookies. Once the jar is empty there is more baking to be done. Chocolate chip cookies are a big favorite around my house. If I make them when the girls are home, help is never in short supply. Chairs are dragged to the counter and hands are washed before I even get things set up. Sneaking stray chips is a specialty that all three have perfected. Not sure who they learned that from. Makes baking things with chocolate chips very popular. Read More »
