Chocolate Studded Oatmeal Bars

When it comes to home baking, quality ingredients make all the difference. Take these Chocolate Studded Oatmeal Bars, for example. They’re made with Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour and Scharffen Berger Semisweet Chocolate Chunks. Sure they would be good with run-of-the-mill flour and chocolate chips, but my philosophy has always been that if you’re going to take the time to make something from scratch, you want it to turn out great. Therefore, start with great ingredients. Because these bars include Hodgson Mill whole wheat flour (the entire bran and germ are stone ground, preserving all of the grain’s natural nutrients and great taste) and 62% cacao chocolate chunks; they’re immediately transformed into something so much better than your average cookie. Read More »


Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Peppermint Cookies

‘Tis the season for all things peppermint: candy, ice cream, hot chocolate – and cookies, of course! These Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Peppermint Cookies are based off of one of my favorite Christmas cookie recipes. I made them a little healthier by adding Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour to the recipe. Getting some whole grains into the cookie jar while also creating a great tasting cookie is always a good idea in my book. This recipe takes everything that’s wonderful about chocolate chip cookies and bumps it up a holiday notch by including Peppermint Crunch Junior Mints® and crushed candy canes. I love the combination of chocolate and peppermint – not to mention chocolate chip cookies in general – and this recipe doesn’t disappoint. These cookies are also great to make with kids since there are several steps that are perfect for little helpers – just be sure you have plenty of chocolate chips and candy to spare. Read More »


Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls

The dough starts off in the usual way with lots of butter, sugar and cinnamon (these are cinnamon rolls after all) and then incorporates some extra ingredients like lemon zest, nutmeg, buttermilk and Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour. Then sliced apples are slowly caramelized in more butter, sugar and cinnamon and are wrapped into the dough with even more cinnamon and sugar. Mouth watering yet? To take these rolls over the top, they’re frosted with a creamy, salted-caramel glaze that will make you weak in the knees after one taste. Altogether, these cinnamon rolls are reminiscent of caramel apples in a warm, gooey cinnamon roll form.  Read More »

These rolls are easy, flavorful and can be done ahead of time – perfect for Thanksgiving. Read More »


Savory Sweet Potato and Cannelini Bean Pie with Whole Wheat Olive Oil Crust

I’ve been experimenting. My philosophy is, start with good ingredients that you love, and whatever you make can’t be all bad. (Within reason: I’m not advocating for shrimp in chocolate sauce or anything.) But how about sweet potatoes, with rosemary and goat cheese? Sign me up. I knew I was getting close to something great with this pie when one of my taste testers said, “Oh, wow. I could eat this several times a day.” Whoohoo! Read More »

Apple Pie Crumb Bars

Soccer season has started and we’ve had to surrender our schedules to keep up with practices and games for two of our girls. Now we love soccer – my husband is even a coach – and we support our girls and their teams 100 percent, but it is harder to find time to bake on the weekends now. That doesn’t stop us from wanting dessert though – namely apple pie. This recipe for Apple Pie Crumb Bars is quicker to put together than traditional apple pie and it includes Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Pastry Flour, so it’s a healthier way to get our dessert fix, too. Read More »


Banana-Nut Whole Wheat Cookies with Maple Icing

I found this recipe for Banana-Nut Whole Wheat Cookies with Maple Icing a while back but I never seemed to have brown bananas around when I had time to bake. Well, low and behold, the fruit basket offered up some over-ripe bananas the other day. It just so happened that it was nap time and my schedule was free, so out came the mixing bowl and I was ready to go. I opted to make these cookies, versus banana bread or Banana Pecan Cake with Warm Chocolate Sauce – traditional brown banana outlets in my family, because this recipe intrigued me in several ways. First, the banana is mixed with the butter, chilled and then cut into the flour – like a crumb topping or pie crust. Second, it uses 100% Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour in the dough – no white flour at all. And third, it calls for a maple icing on top – not a flavor I had combined with bananas before. I love it when a recipe gets me thinking and gives me new ideas to try. Read More »


Lime Yogurt Breakfast Cake with Margarita Glaze

Crunching through the salty-sweet glaze into the moist crumbliness of this yogurt cake fragrant with vanilla and lime is a great start to any day, believe me. A healthy helping of both Greek yogurt and Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour ensures that you don’t get hungry too long before lunch, either. Read More »


Rustic Rosemary Whole Wheat Garlic Bread

Sometimes you just need to bake. Despite the hot weather, the need to knead just won’t go away. Besides, when you have a pasta dish like Summer Harvest Pasta with Mascarpone Meatballs in the works, a great bread companion just makes sense. This is where Rustic Rosemary Whole Wheat Garlic Bread comes into the picture. It’s filled with Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour, Hodgson Mill Naturally White Flour, Hodgson Mill Active Dry Yeast, fresh rosemary and minced garlic – and it makes two loaves which helps justify heating up the house when it’s hot out.  Read More »
