This week’s Ingredient Spotlight is on one of my favorite ingredients – whole wheat flour. I love the rich and semi-nutty flavor of red whole wheat, and I love the versatility and soft taste of the white wheat variety.
Have you tried white whole wheat flour?
What I love about it is that it has a texture that closely matches all purpose flour, especially if you pick a finely ground flour, like King Arthur. In fact, about 5 years ago was the last time we bought a 5lb sack of all purpose flour. We use white whole wheat in everything.
Here are some of our favorite recipes showcasing whole wheat flour:
5) Cookies – like this thick and chewy sugar cookies!
6) Bread Sticks – like these Copy-Cat Olive Garden Breadsticks
