Milled whole grains are just as easy to use.

Whole grains when milled can be used just like any other regular flour. Over the years I've had to work with and perfect certain recipes I used to use the 'white, dead' flour in. It isn't hard at all to do however. It's quite simple.

I'm no expert at all at cooking either, so if I can do it anyone can! I didn't learn how to cook till I got married. Since I've been milling my own whole grains however, my family has been healthier and they have actually enjoyed my cooking a whole lot better.

The advice I can give is this, test out different ways to make your recipe better. If the recipe doesn't work out, don't sweat it or give up. Try again and change a few things!

I've had many trial and errors (and still do!), but when I figured out the special way to make whole grains work just as good as other flour. Not only was I keeping my family healthier, but like I said cooking improved! :P

So just don't ever give up! That's all I have to say!

Pancake Recipe

Here's the yummy whole wheat pancake recipe I said I'd post. :)

4 C freshly milled "soft white wheat"
1 t salt
1 t backing soda*
2 1/2 t baking powder
2 T sugar

1/4 C oil
2 eggs
3 1/2 C buttermilk

Mix together all dry ingredients. Add liquids. Stir just until they are mixed. Fry on hot oiled griddle. To make a lighter pancake separate the eggs and whip the egg whites then fold gently into the batter. Serve however you like it and enjoy.
*Omit soda and increase baking powder to 4 teaspoons if using sweet milk instead of buttermilk.

And that's it! Enjoy the recipe and come back and see us soon or subscribe to our feed. :)

Easy Pancakes

Who doesn't delight in eating pancakes? Straight from the griddle, still hot as you put on the butter and watch it melt, and the maple syrup (or whatever you prefer) being poured on top. With your fork sinking into the small stack of them to find them as light and fluffy as if they were a cloud. Mmm, my mouth is actually starting to water as I type this.

I've got an excellent recipe that I've tweaked over the years with my freshly milled whole wheat flour. I've now got it to where they taste just as good as buying any pancake mix from the store. Only mine are healthier for you because you get the benefits of having whole wheat! Also, not to mention there's no lard in these like in normal mixes. My kids love them!

An array of flours and flour blends can be used for this recipe, but what I almost always use in my recipe is soft white wheat. They are outstanding!

I'm not going to post it just yet though. Just wanted to whet your appetite. ;)

Don't worry though, it'll be up within the next few days. Possibly tomorrow. Check back, so you don't miss it!
