Banana Buckwheat Muffins with Dark Chocolate, Walnuts and Cacao Nibs

Mmmmm… Mom, what smells so good? If this is the first thing your children want to know when they walk into the kitchen, it’s a pretty good sign you’ve got a winner of a recipe on your hands. Not only do these Banana Buckwheat Muffins with Dark Chocolate, Walnuts and Cacao Nibs smell wonderful as they bake, they taste fantastic, too. These moist, lightly sweet banana muffins are chock-full of toasted walnuts, dark chocolate, bittersweet cacao nibs and whole grain goodness from Hodgson Mill Buckwheat Flour and Hodgson Mill Brown Rice Flour. They remind me of my favorite banana bread, but with a more sophisticated flavor from the buckwheat flour, dark chocolate and cacao nibs.  Read More »

Back-to -School Cookies

I love the idea of my kids having a homemade cookie treat after school, but I really love the idea of my kids eating a cookie that’s made with healthy ingredients. So, as we started collecting what we needed, I reached for my bag of Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour. These cookies are packed with lots of good things, so I knew that mixing in some whole wheat flour would go unnoticed – if I were making them alone. Hmmm… my kids were helping me make these cookies. How would the addition of whole wheat go over? Even though my children know that whole wheat is good for them, sometimes they balk when I add it to certain beloved foods – cookies being one of them. So, with my back up argument about how whole wheat is healthy on the tip of my tongue, I set it out as an ingredient, gave a measurement to my oldest girl, watched her mix it into the dough and… that was it. No one groaned or moaned even a little. Much to my delight, I believe that whole wheat is finding its place in my house – even in cookies. All three of my girls watched the Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat get mixed into the dough and no one blinked an eye. It just goes to show, that including healthy foods in our daily lives makes an impression on children, and instead of being something to complain about, it becomes normal. Very cool. Read More »


Whole Wheat Monkey Bread

Monkey bread – I’m not sure where the name comes from, but it sure is tasty! I’ve known about Monkey bread for a long time – mostly from friends who make it with a can of biscuit dough, but being a “from scratch” type of girl, I never made it. Once you’re from scratch – it’s hard to go back. I also knew there had to be a way to make the gooey, cinnamon roll-like bread, healthier – in comes Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour to the rescue! I made the dough for this bread with a full cup of whole wheat flour as well as some Hodgson Mill All Natural All Purpose Flour to round things out. Don’t worry – butter and sugar are still a part of this monkey bread. My kids have even asked when we’re making it again, so the homemade, whole grain version passed the little people test in my house. That’s reason enough to give this recipe a try. Who needs a can of biscuits? Not us – let’s get baking!  Read More »
