Ingredient Spotlight: Whole Wheat Flour

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:

1) Tortillas

2) Sandwich Bread

3) Whole Wheat Buttermilk Waffles

4) Homemade Crackers

5) Cookies – like this thick and chewy sugar cookies!

6) Bread Sticks – like these Copy-Cat Olive Garden Breadsticks

What recipes of yours use whole wheat (either red or white) flour?
